Independent Venue Week!
Independent Venue Week is a 7-day celebration of grassroots music venues around the country and we’re delighted to be joining in at Paper Dress Vintage!
We’ve got 6 big shows spread throughout the week including the Americana Music Awards and some of our favourite acts such as Oh! Gunquit, Eskimo Chain and The Pacers taking to the stage to help support independent music – hope to see you at one of our below shows!

Here’s a few words from the charity about the event:
“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 in the UK and also the wider music industry and brands globally, 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.
These venues are the backbone of the live music scene in their 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.”
