DIY are teaming up with Big Indie for a series of new band shows, starting with Factory Seconds!

We’ll be bringing a new band to Two Tribes Brewery every month for an exclusive gig.

Fans of our beloved NEU section (so, all of you then…) will be aware that over here at DIY, we bloody love new bands. We love finding them and championing them and putting them on stages and watching them blossom into the big world-beating artists that dominate your playlists today.

So, with this in mind, we’re teaming up with record label Big Indie for a new monthly night featuring a whole crop of new bands that we’re very excited about indeed.

Taking place monthly at Two Tribes Brewery, a new venue nestled in Kings Cross’ Tileyard Studios (v close to DIY HQ, FYI), we’ll be bringing you one top notch new band a month, in a lovely beery space, for the grand old price of free. And first up are London’s Factory Seconds: a quartet blending shoegaze, pop and new wave into an effortlessly hooky whole.

It’s all taking place next week, on 11th April from 6pm, and you can sign up for free tickets right here.

Go on then, get on it!
