You love gigs, we love gigs, let’s get together and talk about them. February is absolutely jam packed, so with the snow and ice ahead, what could be better than a couple of hours in a sweaty room with your best mates and favourite bands? Absolutely nothing. So grab some tickets, have a class night out and thank me later.

28: Sea Girls @ Northumbria Institute
