As I sat down to put pen to paper (fingers to keyboard) and write March’s gig guide I received the news that we have joined forces with two of Swansea’s best live music venues. The Scene Club and Sin City.

We are very excited and cannot wait to start working with these guys, as without these fantastic venues on our doorstep, Swansea wouldn’t have the live music scene it has today.

After a very quiet start to the year March is definitely the month where bands get back out on the road.

After the release of their 11th studio album Thunder head to the Motorpoint Arena, old school punk rockers The Stranglers play Cardiff University and the 70’s psychedelic rockers Hawkwind are back in Wales, playing at neon in Newport.

The gigs I’m most looking forward to going to are; LA Guns – Phil Lewis & Tracii Guns in the scene, Bruce Foxton’s From the Jam in Sin City, Prophecy plus Star Storm in The Scene and the seven sins festival showcase at Crowley’s rock bar, featuring The Starling Radicals, Ghost Of Machines, Doomcrow, Lilith and The K.
