Independents Day – the annual celebration of independent labels – is going on the road this year, taking in Glasgow and St Andrews, as its main events are taking place outside the accepted centre of the music ‘biz’ (i.e. that London).
In Glasgow, at Stereo on Thursday 16th September, Figure 5, Suspire, The Imagineers, Schnapps and Tragic O’Hara will perform, while there will also be a ‘record fair’ selling the best in Scottish independent music, including releases from Flowers in the Dustbin (Nevada Base), Neon Tetra (ISA & the Filthy Tongues), delicate (The Clyde) as well as Detour and EMUbands. Retailer Love music will also be present.
Three days later, on Sunday 19th Sept at St Andrews’ Barron Theatre, new Chemikal Underground signings Found appear alongside Kid Canaveral, Jo Mango, The Last Battle and The Oates Field all appear, while labels will be represented by Fence, Chemikal, Lo-Five, 17 Seconds and Straight to Video.
