New music fans can witness some of the best bands that played Manchester's 'In The City' conference at the last of three special gigs in London this Thursday.
To celebrate the best of the artists that played at this years In The City (30 Sept – 3 Oct) in Manchester, several were selected by a panel of industry experts to play over three dates at the Carling Islington Academy in London – and the final show takes place Thursday 10th November, with bands playing in both parts of the venue at staggered times, so you can get 10 bands for your money.
With Best of In The City having previously helped to unearth the likes of The Darkness, Coldplay and The Subways, expect quality acts at rock bottom prices – before they get all big…headliners 65 Days of Static are one of our top tips for this year.
Thanks to our good friends at The Band Agency, we have limited guest list places to all of these shows and ‘Best of ITC’ CD’s to give away, so drop us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org saying which night(s) you are interested in and we will pull a few names out of the hat to get you in for free.
