What with planning for the Great Escape we’ve got a bit behind with our new music posts, so there’s a LOT to get through this week. Hopefully we’re back up to date after this, but if you’ve heard of something local that we haven’t, let us know!
Next week sees the return of The Great Escape, where we all get even less sleep than normal, and anywhere you could imagine a stage, and a few places you couldn’t, turn into venues for three days.

If I was on the ball, I’d have posted about ZOFFF’s gig at the Prince Albert last Sunday, where they were joined onstage by Terry Bickers and Jo Spratley and lit by Innerstrings.
