Independent Venue Week 2019 Gig Guide – Saturday (2 February)

Every night of Independent Venue Week 2019 is a big night out, but some nights – Saturdays  in fact – are bigger than others as our penultimate day (2 February) this year is also our busiest.

Leftfield and A Guy Called Gerald are bringing the electronic vibes to Dreamland’s Hall By The Sea in Margate, Richard Hawley breaks cover to play a very unique show at Bury’s The Met, while Shed Seven’s Rick Witter is behind the decks at The Salty Dog in Northwich.

Plus, Cardiff’s Clwb Ifor Bach is hosting The Wave Pictures, Guildford The Boileroom has Black Futures on the bill, Ian McNabb  plays The Half Moon in Putney and Reading’s The Purple Turtle hosts Afrikan Boy.
