Man & The Echo, Pacific, Delphina Kings, Weekend Wars, The Ambersons and new addition, Big Sky!
Independent Venue Week is a 7 day celebration of small music venues around the UK and a nod to the people that own, run and work in them, week in, week out.
Birchwood band Man and The Echo are being given the chance to play on the biggest stage in their hometown as part of Independent Venue Week on Saturday 3rd February. Tickets are on sale now, priced £5 in advance.
The four-piece, who perform pop rock with a political edge, will be joined at Parr Hall by Pacific, a band with members from Northwich and Warrington who have been backed by BBC broadcaster Mark Radcliffe.
Completing the line-up on February 3 are Lymm’s Delphina Kings, St Helens’ Weekend Wars, The Ambersons from Orford and ex The Tamalas, Big Sky.
Supported using public funding by Arts Council England, Independent Venue Week brings together these venues along with breaking and established artists, promoters, labels, media, bloggers and tastemakers to create a nationwide series of gigs at the end of January.
These venues give artists their first experience of playing live in front of an audience and for fans, somewhere to get up close to artists that one day, may well be playing stadiums and festival main stages.
Man and The Echo recently performed at RivFest, a festival at Priestley College in memory of Viola Beach guitarist River Reeves.
The left-wing musicians are currently working on their second album fuelled by Brexit, the Trump presidency and the Tories propped up by the DUP.
So, be sure to expect plenty of this
