Inaugural Independent Venue Week to take place in January and February 2014

 
By on Friday, 29th November 2013 at 11:00 am
 

The music business is a hard one. In recent years, we’ve seen the decline of record sales and record shops closing as an unfortunate consequence of music piracy. This has hurt bands and the industry as a whole. So it’s all the more important that we support some of the most important unsung heroes of music: independent music venues.

These places where we go to worship our musical heroes might not physically be as massive as those larger, sponsor-backed venues (you know which ones I’m talking about) but independently-owned, small- and medium-sized venues far exceed those behemoths in heart. They act as meeting places for culture, where the local community can come together and watch up and coming artists just starting out, and gigs there often serve as significant milestones for musicians and fans alike. But just like other sectors of the music industry, these smaller places to see music are struggling in this economy, and we are losing some of the most historic, important places of our musical heritage. So it’s high time we gave independent music venues the credit they deserve.

The inaugural 6-day event Independent Venue Week 2014, already receiving support from PRS and BBC Introducing, will boast a blinding assortment of amazing shows at 18 independent venues across Britain. Drowned in Sound, Moshi Moshi Records, Domino Records, The Musicians Union and UK Music have already pledged their involvement in the event as well. Jo Dipple of UK Music said of Independent Music Week:

Our great musical heritage is what defines us as a country and UK Music is fully committed to supporting venues large and small. Live music is the backbone of this country; from the Cavern Club to the Leadmill we have some of the most interesting venues in the world and it’s great to see them among those being celebrated as part of Independent Venue Week.

Venues confirmed for the 6-day event include Cardiff Clwb Ifor Bach in Wales (celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2013), Belfast Oh Yeah Centre in Northern Ireland, Glasgow King Tut’s in Scotland, Bristol Louisiana, Guildford Boileroom, Leeds Library, Liverpool Zanzibar, London Putney Half Moon pub, Manchester Soup Kitchen, Newcastle Cluny, Norwich Art Centre, Oxford Jericho, Plymouth Tiki Bar, Stoke Sugarmill (celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2013), Southampton Joiners (celebrating its 45th anniversary in 2013), Sheffield Leadmill, Tunbridge Wells Forum (celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2013) and York Fibbers. Drummer Philip Selway of Radiohead fondly recalls The Jericho’s importance in their band’s history:

Small venues are the lifeblood of British music. When you start out as a band, you aspire to playing in your local venue and feel a sense of achievement when you get a gig there. In Oxford, we grew up wanting to play at The Jericho Tavern, and were lucky enough to be signed after one of our shows there.

We’ve been lucky enough to have covered shows at many of these places, and we’re chuffed they’ll be participating in Independent Venue Week in 2014. Specific dates, locations and line-ups will be announced in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. But we’re already excited about this new event to celebrate our favourite places to see live bands.
