Norwich-based indie rockers Lot 55 headline Norwich Arts Centre on Saturday night (8pm) for this fundraiser for local charity Nelson's Journey.

Since their sold-out headline show at the venue in January the four-piece band - Will Overton (vocals/guitar), Daren Francis (guitar), Keith Willers (bass) and Kevin Gray (drums) - have continued to enhance their reputation, supporting established indie names the Bluetones and Inspiral Carpets, as well as playing a very successful first headline show at the Waterfront in July.

The band mix American and Britpop influences - from the Smiths to the Killers, Jimmy Eat World to Ash, Matchbox 20 to Manic Street Preachers - to create their own punchy, but melodic sound which has been attracting an ever-growing following in the city.

You can check out and download their tracks at www.lot55.co.uk or www.myspace.com/lot55

Support comes from Fitzwilliam and the Spitfires (www.myspace.com/fitzandthespitz), whose indie sound combines danceable drums, driving bass and snappy guitars, acoustic duo Sam & Daisy (www.myspace.com/samanddaisy), whose gorgeous acoustic melodies and harmonies made them Next Big Thing III finalists last year, and Lowestoft-based Telegram Sam (www.myspace.com/telegramsamtheband), who describe their sound as a juxtaposition of pop, r'n'b, rock and indie stylings with influences ranging from Blondie to Beyoncé, Coldplay to Kasabian.
