It’s Wednesday. Meaning everything is fully in gear, and Independent Venue Week is firmly on the road. Here’s the list of gigs happening this evening.

It’s Wednesday of Independent Venue Week! There’s an amazing amount of shows happening across the country this evening – including Big Jeff Johns showcase at The Exchange (before which PRS For Music will be organising a panel on getting started in the music industry), there’s Gaz Coombes in Leicester, and Help Musicians UK host a showcase in Bangor, Northern Ireland.
