Leicester 4 piece indie outfit The Boobytraps have opened the year with 2 storming gigs in London & Leicester so far & have plenty more on the way including festival slots up & down the country.
The band who formed late 2007 played a hometown gig at Leicester’s O2 Academy in support to other local legends The Screening. A further O2 Leicester outing is on the cards in support to Kav (ex Happy Mondays)
The second gig of the year was a more intimate affair at Soho’s Spice Of Life, however the band played to a packed venue, this was the bands 3rd gig outing to the capital. Amongst the audience, and specially invited, was a member of the organising team for Mallorca & Ibiza Rocks who was impressed enough to invite the lads over as VIP Guests during the summer gig season. Needless to say, some of the band members will be heading over in July to see their neighbours Kasabian play at both the Mallorca & Ibiza Rocks venues.
The Boobytraps have a busy summer ahead with some 23 gigs between now and the end of August, appearing at several festivals along the way including A Lost Weekend ( alongside Toploader, The Blockheads, The Hoosiers & Dodgy) – Solfest together with KT Tunstall, Billy Bragg & Big Country & The Y Not Festival with The Pigeon Detectives, Reverend & The Makers & The Wombats.
2012 has seen the band step up their game & are certainly ones to watch. Find them at: www.theboobytraps.com
