Taking place between Monday 28th January and Sunday 3rd February, Independent Venue Week is a much loved, annual celebration of the finest live music spaces.
Once again, a UK wide run of dates will commence with the spotlight shone not on massive arena shows, but the grassroots establishments that help up and coming artists up and down the country hone their talents - while also giving big ups to the production staff at each venue who make everything possible.
As part of our involvement with 2018's IVW we chatted to one of the finest and most ferocious live acts in the country Avalanche Party about the importance of Independent Venue Week - you can watch the interview above, plus a live performance from the band at Sneaky Pete's Edinburgh below.
