It’s back, our (mostly) weekly look at what’s going on outside of Northampton in our surrounding counties. Lots and lots of gigs to choose from over the next week or so, hence we’re only going with basic listings this week to keep things relatively simple.

Some gigs to consider include Squeeze man Chris Difford who is heading to Esquires for a rare solo gig, folk stalwarts Steeleye Span who are playing two nights at The Stables in MK, garage give piece Avalanche Party and if pop punk’s your thing – get to MK11 for WSTR.
