Club Velocity presents Beans On Toast
Beans on Toast will be doing a week long tour across the South of the UK as part of this years Independent venue week. IVW is a brilliant organisation that highlights the need for grass roots independent venues, which as we all know are closing down at an alarming rate.
Beans' new song "The Drum Kit" taken from his new album "A Spanner in the Works" released on Xtra Mile Recordings on 1st December 2016 is all about the closing of UK venues; a matter very close to Bean's heart, so this whistle stop tour seemed like a very good shout indeed.
Each night there will be great local acts on the bill, and each show will be no more than a tenner for you to support your local independent venue.
