What more appropriate location for British Sea Power to drop anchor for the evening than the historic port of Falmouth, where they will perform their first Westcountry show for a couple of years at the Princess Pavilion on Wednesday, April 16?

It's interesting to note that the first time US stars The Killers ever toured was when they supported British Sea Power (right) in the UK ten years ago. After the Las Vegas outfit blasted to multi-platinum success, they returned the favour by flying BSP to America to open for them at packed stadiums.

While they may not have caught up with their transatlantic pals on commercial terms, the Brighton-based indie rockers have continued to explore and expand their creative horizons over the ensuing decade, and late last year released much-lauded, multi-stylistic fifth album Machineries Of Joy.

They boast a loyal fanbase and hosts of high profile appreciators, from David Bowie and Lou Reed to Bill Bailey, Jeremy Vine, Caitlin Moran, Keith Allen and Brian Cox.

A tour de force in the live arena, they haven’t been gigging much of late, so this is a great opportunity to soak up their energy and atmosphere.

Warming up the stage will be the hotly-tipped rockers Pastel Colours (right) from Falmouth, who lace their old-school psychedelia with a slug of punk. Debut single Hands Like Silk turned BBC 6 Music DJ Lauren Laverne into an instant fan. This is their first major appearance on home turf after forming three months ago... could they be heading for the stratosphere?
