MUSIC A MUSIC gig hosted by a student at Newport’s indoor skate park last Saturday was a success after three Island and Hampshire bands performed to a large crowd of youngsters.

Ettienne Janus, 16, of Christ the King College, organised the event in the hope of getting young people off the streets and out of trouble as she believes more should be done to help them.

The rock gig set Ettienne’s campaign, Project:Overload, off with a bang and rock bands Skies of Apollo, Gone By Tomorrow and Living In Echoes expressed their delight at performing at The Drop indoor skate park on Hurstake Road, Dodnor.

Lewis Smyth, from Gone By Tomorrow, said: "Thanks so much to everyone who came out to The Drop in Newport to see us. We had an awesome time hanging out with you all and having fun on the ramps."
