Friday October 14th marked the culmination of Norwich Arts Centre gigs as part of the Norwich Sound and Vision Festival. With a lineup consisting of legendary indie quartet Peace, Gaffa Tape Sandy and We'll Be Detectives the festival was rounded off with an epic cry of indie rock.

We'll Be Detectives opened the night. Made up of trio Jonny Briggs, Dermot Wilson and Harrison Calaby the up-and-coming band were a great way to start the evening.

Having emerged through Norwich Art Centre's talent development scheme Sonic Youths, they have played in support of the likes of Tigercub and VANT.

You could tell that the band was incredibly excited to perform alongside such big and well-established acts and this was reflected in their relentlessly energetic performance. Their grunge sound awakened the crowd and set everyone up for the evening.

Closing the night were headliners Peace. The audience reaction was insane. From the introduction of Morricone you could tell that this was the act that everyone was waiting for.

With their honeyed indie rock sound, the packed Norwich Arts Centre went completely wild singing along and moshing to the band's infectious choruses. Their performance was really something to witness and made the prospect of their long awaited and highly anticipated third record even more exciting.
