A 'clapometer' has been installed at The Hippo to help with the judging – so the more people who cheer for their favourite band, the more chance they have of going through.
The second heat of the competition will take place tomorrow . Roadhouse Bound, Melancholy Moose Society, The Vics and Digital Bob will be vying for the quarter finals. Doors open at 7.30pm, with the first band on at 8pm.
