Gaz Coombes will be joining the Independent Venue Week bill

Supergrass’s Gaz Coombes will be joining us for a special date as part of this year’s Independent Venue Week.

We’re thrilled to announce that the wonderful Gaz Coombes will be playing The Cookie in Leicester on Wednesday 31st January. Gaz is currently preparing for the release of his latest album, World’s Strongest Man, to be released on May 4th. His show will be an extremely intimate and rare appearance in a small and independent venue.

For nearly two decades with Supergrass, Coombes came to embody the oddball end of British indie and Britpop. But it is through his solo work that he has found himself. With his 2015 album Matador, he presented a new musical identity: wide-screen, emotional, cinematic and full of artistic surprises. It earned him a Mercury Prize nomination.“With Matador I almost got it right…” he says.

Leicester’s The Cookie is one of our official venues for Independent Venue Week 2018. The 180-capacity venue will also play host to a number of other great shows during the week, including Blue Rose Code on Mon 29th, Flamingods on Tues 30th, and Haus on Sunday 4th. For full listings of what’s on offer at The Cookie during Independent Venue Week, you can check their website.

Tickets for Gaz’s special show are available through Skiddle. The link to buy them can be found here:
