It’s the fourth year of Independent Venue Week and The Forum put on two shows.
On Friday, Mark Morriss, accompanied by Mike Wilton (and his Clark’s tappy shoes) with support from Cyrano and The Gallerys.
On Saturday, the electronic-pop of Gazel (and band), with support from Island Cassettes and The Ackerleys (spot Joe in a different top lead singing in Cyrano).
The week also attracted lots of media coverage. Let’s hope it is all doing good.
My personal thought? The variety of people in the audiences (and on stage) of the two Forum events. Everyone connects with music in different ways, for different reasons. For all those reasons, let’s hope independent venues can remain part of town and city scapes as we move on into the next four years.
