This Saturday will witness the first ‘Shoetown Sounds’ live event in Northampton, which is to be a regular event that will pop up all over Northampton to promote community radio and support local music by broadcasting the events live.

Celebrating NNBC Radio‘s “upgrade” on the September 30th and it’s renaming as ‘NLive‘ the event has a formidable line-up of five Northants bands/musicians who will be playing & broadcast live from The Lab [97 Charles St]. The line up is Charlotte Carpenter, O’Mahon, Burrowing Bees, Deep Sea Mountains and Hana Brooks.

It’s a mere £3 on the door, or you can pick up a wristband for free entry from the NLive team who will be on the Market Square in Northampton town centre, broadcasting live all day on Saturday.

The next planned event is also taking shape: its to be on November 4th, with Corinna Jane as the headline act, supported by Dan Hughes (and again at The Lab).
