Now in its third year, Independent Venue Week is back in January 2016 with a week-long series of gigs all around the UK. The 7 day long campaign which runs nationally but with a local grassroots focus has grown again from last year with 120 now venues taking part, from Aberdeen to Exeter and Belfast to Norwich. 

This year’s Ambassadors are Mercury Prize Shortlisted Artist Wolf Alice who are taking over from Frank Turner (2015) and Colin Greenwood (2014). “We are proud to be ambassadors of this year’s Independent Venue Week and ask for peoples support so these kind of unique, intimate and sweaty shows continue for everyone to enjoy. Venues that we started off playing along with so many other bands have created some of our funnest memories to date. We’d love for that to continue for us and for other bands, please show your support.” www.independentvenueweek.com

Girl/Boy duo-who deal in electro blues.Awesome. Female-fronted electronic blues duo Vienna Ditto will be releasing their debut album on 8th June 2015 on Ubiquity Project Records with a new single 'A Happy Car is a Stolen Car' due out 1st June. Hatty and Nigel first met when he started teaching her guitar around 2000, when she was 11. The lazy tyke never practiced but did have a most arresting voice. After a couple of years they lost touch, but bumped into each other in the street in 2009. They recorded an electronic version of Johnny Cash's Ring of Fire the next week, and the week after one of their own compositions, Long Way Down, which somehow ended up being played on Huw Stephens' Radio One show. An appearance on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury Festival followed and the band have since been given a Maida Vale session for Tom Robinson on BBC6 and have appeared on Channel 4's Hollyoaks Music Show. They have been given airplay on Radio One, BBC6 Music and XFM and received glowing reviews in Q Magazine, Artrocker and The Fly (RIP). They have also had their music used for several advertising campaigns, the most recent for Saks Fifth Avenue. Their music will also feature in Sacred Heart, a film by award-winning director Kosta Nikas, due out in 2015.

Very tasty band alert.Like the Shadows playing with Renegade Soundwave.
