Independent Venue Week 2017


Doors: 07:00:00
£TBA

Independent Venue Week is a 7 day celebration of small music venues around the UK and a nod to the people that own, run and work in them, week in, week out.

These venues give artists their first experience of playing live in front of an audience and for fans, somewhere to get up close to artists that one day, may well be playing stadiums and festival main stages.

Supported using public funding by Arts Council England, Independent Venue Week brings together these venues along with breaking and established artists, promoters, labels, media, bloggers and tastemakers to create a nationwide series of gigs at the end of January.

These venues are the backbone of the live music scene in this country and Independent Venue Week wants to recognise all that they have done to create some of the most memorable nights of the past so they can continue to do the same in the future.

Runs from Monday 29th January - Sunday 4th February 2017

Trestle Records Night »
Trestle records is a record label dedicated to putting out new instrumental music started by four friends in east london during 2011.

Ranging from electronic to classical, pop to musique concrete supporting and distributing all manner of contemporary instrumental music is its principle.

As part of Independent Venue Week Trestle will showcase their fine stable of acts...


Tout »
Making highly atmospheric instrumentals, interwoven guitars are accompanied by drums and viola in the creation of cinematic soundscapes.
Suggestive of open terrain and movement through far flung landscapes Americana-tinged melodies combine with Folk-inflections and post-rock sounds.


Ross Downes »
London based artist, musician, DJ and founder of Trestle records... Using guitar and synthesisers his focus of late has been upon atmospheric electro works.

Finding a medium between experimentation and melodic tunes Downes draws upon ambient, kraut, minimalist and soundtrack influences. The recordings range from delicate guitar pieces to dissonant experimental soundscapes. He is also active in a number of other collaborative projects.


Adam Coney »
Experimental and improvisation scene guitarist with a keen sense of production aesthetic and progressive sensibilities.

Stylistically his work draws comparisons to The Durutti Column, Jim O'Rourke and John Zorn.

In 2014 he released 'The Fall Of The Flamingo Gardens' on Trestle Records. Associated acts include Acland & Sydney, Noon, City Shepherd, Morviscous, Adam Coney + Jonny Fryer
