BROMSGROVE indie band Hollow People will be taking to the stage in the Second City this weekend as part of an event showcasing local groups.
The five-piece is performing at Oobleck in the Custard Factory, Digbeth, tomorrow (Saturday).
Hollow People is made up of front-man and lead singer George Stanhope, Year 13 South Bromsgrove High School sixth-formers Joe Callaghan and Adam Plummer on guitar, Harry Southerton on drums and former North Bromsgrove student Will Cooke on bass. He is currently studying at Access to Music in Birmingham.
Among the influences for the band, who only formed in January, are The Smiths, Blur and The Stone Roses.
Hollow People recently appeared at top Birmingham venues The O2 Academy 3 and The Sunflower Lounge.
George said: “The Oobleck is a very prestigious venue so it’s great to be playing there and already lining up more shows for the new year.”
The band also plans to release its first EP in the spring.
“We have a dozen songs written so just need to get it down to the best four then get into the studio.
“We have a couple of tracks uploaded onto online music site Soundcloud which have been really well received so we’re on a bit of a roll at the moment.” added George.
