THIS summer, Gaymers, the cider people, have been presenting a series of must see, money-can’t-buy music performances by some of the UK’s top indie acts “full of English character”.
So far, The Futureheads, Young Knives and Mystery Jets have all been returning to their hometown roots and performing exclusive sets to small crowds at intimate venues, back where all the magic began.
With three of the four gigs done and dusted, the climax of the series will take place in Liverpool next Tuesday (June 17) with a special set by local indie-rockers-made-good The Wombats.
Do they still take their washing home to their mums? Who knows, but since meeting at LIPA in 2003, the Wombats have been before the eyes of the world: First on the roof with Ringo in January and since at sell-out live dates including London’s Brixton Academy, The Royal Albert Hall and the Manchester Apollo. A packed-out festival season sees them co-headlining the NME/Radio 1 stage at the Carling Weekender, playing the Other Stage at Glastonbury and playing T In The Park, Isle of Wight and Oxegen. Meanwhile in Europe they will play at no fewer than 17 festivals.
But before then they'll be girding their loins at a secret venue next week, purely for their Mersey fans, and that's where you come in.
Tickets for this intimate gig are strictly limited and www.Gaymersmusic.com is one of the only places where you can get your hands on one.
