Former Icicle Works frontman Ian McNabb and Goldheart Assembly will headline a free gig at 93 Feet West in London in May as part of the Save BBC 6 Music radio station campaign.
The evening features eight fantastic acts who have featured on the station over the last year including I Like Trains, RedTrack, We Rock Like Girls Dont, Shabby Rogue, Isa & The Filthy Tongues and Alexander Price.
Andrew Harrison from The Word magazine will be hosting the event and the gig is designed to show solidarity, artist support and to raise awareness of what the BBC are aiming to do – ditching BBC 6.
In a seperate Save BBC 6 Campaign on YouTube Grizzly Bear and Martyn Ware have added their weight to the campaign, both coming forward and stating that they are fully behind the cause.
The Jim Bob, Carter USM and The Woodentops clips on the YouTube channel were recorded specifically by the artists themselves and uploaded to the channel. Many more will follow.
