This is a FREE entry event so we expect as usual a busy night. Big Red Rising will be networking the event through their sponsors Total Rock Radio, Blackstar Amplification, Jack Daniels No.7, Down The Front Media and Motorhead Beer (Cameron's Brewery). The event will be advertised in digital video format, digital poster advertising, one Facebook event will be created 3 weeks before the date of the gig by Big Red Rising (please do not post your own event as multi event causes a network bottleneck) which we expect all bands to share and invite their friends list and share the poster ads across their social media networks.
Down The Front Podcast will contact you regarding playing a track on their podcast in the build up to the event and an online interview which will be published across their social network pages.

*We would like to request that guests do not bring their own alcohol to the venue whether inside or outside the premises. This only applies to a very small % of patrons coming to watch bands - support live music (you get that for free) but also support London rock bar venues and the service they provide. Thank you*
