This Week’s Gigs: 21st – 27th February


We’ve been a bit quiet and crap this week, sorry. Our excuse is that we’ve been out at loads of gigs instead of sitting at home writing about bands, so let us off this time, please?

Here’s what is going on this week, most of which I can’t afford to go to.
As usual if I miss something then no one told me about it. You can let me know about any upcoming gigs by emailing and I won’t miss them out.

French Wives release their first EP Feel Safe Small on Monday, and celebrate with an instore gig at LOVEmusic (the shop formerly known as Avalanche for those not paying attention) at 5pm.

    A friend of mine who is a very talented singer-songwriter and his band are playing as part of the line up at the Liquid Ship on Friday. The band is called Potential Strangers, they have a website ( with some songs and are on myspace too. I’ve seen them quite a few times and they are seriously good.

    Doors open 8.30 but the music probably won’t start until 9 or so.
