You may have heard of Healthy Concerts. What is particularly exciting is the 'Gigs in Digs' tour taking place right now. This is rather special. The idea is both simple and brilliant:
"Small groups of people gathering locally (next door or around the corner) in modest sized venues, such as a neighbour's living-room, for the simple and natural pleasure of listening to genuinely unplugged Live acoustic music. Healthy Concerts make this experience available to all…."
The gigs are all smoke-free and the artists usually request that people leave their kegs of beer and alcopops at home, instead it is supposed to be a night of sharing a few bottles of wine with your mates and chilling out whilst listening to genuinely wonderful songs.
If you've not heard me going on about the band Nizlopi then I advise you to rummage through my blog, you might just find my account of a wonderful night with them in Stratford-Upon-Avon a few months ago in which they managed to kick Radiohead off the top of my 'best ever gigs' list (Quite a feat, I'm sure you'll agree, especially as I saw one of the few performances of Creep by Oxford's Finest). Nizlopi are a Leamington band and if you are really lucky then you might hear them on the popular In Bed With Jack And Ed show on RaW (Sundays 9–11 am 1251 AM and online).
Nizlopi are taking part in the Gigs in Digs tour and are playing in lots of places, but students of the University of Warwick may be interested to know that they are playing Leamington on the 21st January in a house
This is such a rare opportunity to see one of the most talked about acoustic acts in the British music scene today. They have recently sold out venues in Edinburgh and London, and are getting lots and lots of attention from everybody with good taste. The only thing left to say is that Nizlopi are a duo of two people who passionately love music and are most appreciated by people who also passionately love music.
Visit the link above to get tickets or contact me for any information. These tickets will go very very fast and there is a 'you snooze, you lose' policy.
Should be an amazing night.
