Unsigned band slot at Fopp

Fopp have added an unsigned band slot on a Wednesday afternoon to their already busy live music schedule. Catch 3milehigh there this Wednesday…

Unsigned band slot at Fopp

Fopp is the independent music, film and book shop tucked away just off Market Street which sends free thinking fans of, er, music, films and books all gooey at the mere mention of it.

Fopp is the kind of place that makes you feel that little bit cooler just for being in there. When you’ve been shopping at Fopp, you carry the Fopp bag on the outside of your handful of shopping bags, to let everyone know just how ever-so-hip you are (yes you do, don’t try and deny it).

Ok, so we’ve established that Fopp is quite a groovy place. That’s why some of the country’s best known musicians regularly play sets there, with the likes of Liam Frost, Starsailor, The Magic Numbers and We Are Scientists all being spotted happily strumming away at Fopp in the past.

From this week however, Fopp will be adding a regular slot on a Wednesday afternoon (the time of the week when all non-athletic students are free from lectures to run riot) to their already busy schedule, for unsigned bands to show us what they’re made of.

Fopp’s live unsigned sessions kick off this Wednesday with 3milehigh (www.3milehigh.com), whose sound has been described as not unlike that of My Chemical Romance. Hailing from Leeds, 3milehigh leave the hair straighteners at home and the skinny jeans on the rail in Topman and let their guitars do the talking. And they talk very loudly indeed.

Catch 3milehigh at Fopp this Wednesday, 8th November at 5pm, and then more great unsigned bands every Wednesday thereafter.
