Independent Venue Week (IVW) is in full swing with gigs up and down the country showcasing the vibrant spirit and culture of the independent music venues, local music fans and the incredibly creative and diverse level of bands and artists that are around. Bristol has been at the heart of it all with a number of key shows curated to celebrate the scene over the next seven days.
We dropped by on Wednesday to catch IVW at the Exchange where the venue and local music icon Jeffrey Johns (Big Jeff) curated an evening featuring some the best Bristol bands around with the likes of Jesuits, Iceman Furniss Quartet, Addictive to Everything and Emily Isherwood.
Relive the fun and packed-out evening through our live photo gallery. We’ll be next down at The Louisiana for their sold-out IVW event with Fenne Lily headlining and a number of special guests throughout the evening.
