The Gig Guide: 26th Nov – 2nd Dec

Happy Monday, yeah it’s Monday – not the best day but here are a few things to look forward to!

Our gigs start from Thursday this week at The Forum, Tonbridge Wells.  Watch The Blackwater Revue, Escucha, Sanity FM and The Timing make nice sounds for your ears.

Back at The Forum on Friday its all about Genesis Elijah, Natty Speaks, Mr Basista & DJ SP and a Open Mic Night hosted by FS.  Fancy it?

On Saturday there’s so much stuff happening you’ll have to split yourself into five.  Like a really bad dating show, option one.  Toot ‘n’ Skamen are at The Westcoast, Margate for some great ska vibes.  In Folkestone at the new venue Rokanrolla check out Alaska, March on March, Atlantica and Unspoken dreams for the Kent Music Best of Show!  Get in the Christmas Spirit in Deal at The Astor Theater.  Check out the amazingly talented Pip Bowers, Jack Bowden and Chris Marsh providing acoustic music.  Down in Hastings?  Get some rock and metal in your life at The Carlisle with The Self Titled, Stormborn and Never Say Die.  Finally you could go back to The Forum (movie references 🙂 ) and catch Trash Talk.

There’s even a gig on Sunday, the best way to spend a Sunday.  In Ashford a Platform 5  go to Selective Noisze 2 feat. DJ Blaize, Kev Boi, Dark Side Tribe, Jessta and Critical, Mic B and Ziphedz.
