Four great local acts that have all played at our regular emerge new band nights over the past year come back to play again to celebrate Independent Venue Week.

*** Pet Needs ***
Pet Needs are four lads who through the nature of chaos all landed in Essex, wide-eyed, out of breath and ready to create something huge. With explosive live performances of fractured anthems, Pet Needs are currently smashing sets throughout the East, screaming stories of chance meetings, self-destruction, perceived freedom, lampposts and woods.
– Played the first ever emerge night here at JPC in April 2017

“Pet Needs have a superb passion of highs and lows, great lyrics. ‘Punk isn’t dead, it’s just up for sale’… Brilliant!”- Steve Mick, Sniffin’ Glue journalist.

*** Sound Mirrors ***
Sound Mirrors is a six piece, sunshine-pop and indie-psych act from Essex. The Sound Mirrors band is a wall of close-harmony psych-pop, in turns aggressive and melancholy, but always desperately optimistic. Built around classic song writing, a theatrical edge and a ray of hope, Sound Mirrors is a team of beautiful misfits, dedicated to bringing a little sunshine back to rock and roll.
