Adventures Close to Home: New Oxford DIY promo (David Thomas Broughton, Liz Green, Withered Hand, Rob Young etc etc)
Some of you might be interested in this. Adventures Close to Home is our non-profit purveyor of occasional DIY and independent music events in Oxford, run by Rob and Emma. We're interested in putting on indie-pop, experimental, folk, drone, anti-folk, psychedelic and noise shows (essentially anything that gets us excited), ideally in interesting and unusual spaces in Oxford.
These are our May shows, with a whole bunch of exciting stuff (Withered Hand, Francois, Rozi Plain) lined up for the summer... If any of this is of interest, our facebook page is here: https://www.facebook.com/adventuresclosetohomeoxford and our email is ventureclosetohome[at]gmail.com. Cheers!
