We’re thrilled to announce the details of our ambassador Nadine Shah, and the artists who will be playing her tour.

Nadine Shah has announced the details of her tour for Independent Venue Week 2018. The six dates across the UK will see her champion a number of bands including Skinny Girl Diet, and Tarantina. The shows follow Shah’s announcement last year that she will be one of five ambassadors for this year’s IVW.

In an interview with Joe Zadeh on our website, Nadine Shah recently mentioned she found out about the project through the radio. “I heard about it loads via BBC 6Music, and it just sounded like a great idea. I like that IVW is celebrating small independent venues, and doesn’t get too militant about telling people what they need to do to save them. It’s about having a good time in these places rather than just rallying for support.”

“The idea for the tour is to shine a light on some of the music and performers I love, who are currently out there playing,” said Nadine.

Skinny Girl Diet have been widely picked up as champions of DIY punk. The Slits’ Viv Albertine recently said to Dazed and Confused that they were, “At last, real girls, young and believable, singing in their own voices. The music is raw, direct and unpretentious – these girls are timeless. They’re still fighting, still full of energy and self-belief. Go and see them – you’ll be inspired to get up there and do it too.”

Joining Skinny Girl Diet across the tour, will be a number of special guests.

The tour dates, with ticket links, are as follows:

Monday, 29th January – Moles, Bath – tickets

Tuesday, 30th January – Anvil, Bournemouth – tickets

Wednesday, 31st January – Ramsgate Music Hall, Ramsgate – tickets
