An Alternative Gathering

Gig Bookings, Promotions And A&R

What I Do

Primarily I am The In-House Gig Booker & Promoter At The Birds Nest In Deptford, South East London. I Am Also An External DIY Promoter At Select Brighton Venues. Sometimes I Do Tour Bookings Plus A Bit of A&R.

When

As A General Rule I Only Put On Gigs On A Friday & Saturday With The Occasional Sunday Early Finish Gig.

Who

However Good Or Popular You Think You Are Is Irrelevant As I Only Put On Acts That I Like, However Big Or Small.
