If you’ve read the latest issue of The Stinger magazine, you will have seen the feature about The Forum, in Tunbridge Wells. If not, follow this link:
In the feature The Forum’s new Showcase gig nights are mentioned, with details about how bands can get involved, even if they’re from the Hastings area and also what Showcase is all about.
Well, the first of the Showcase gigs is taking place on Thursday, 13th November 2014 and we’re very pleased to say that two Hastings based bands are part of the inaugural line up. The two bands are Kid Kapichi and Follow.
Well done to them for making up 50% of the line up. That’s pretty impressive as I’m sure there have been many bands, from across the South East, applying to play these Showcase gigs.

The reason The Stinger featured a venue such as The Forum in the first place was because of its reputation as a live venue and because of the amazing bands that they’ve put on in the past and continue to host now.
But, The Forum are also very keen on helping to promote new, up and coming, bands from the Kent and Sussex area. For example, the venue was a big supporter of Slaves in their early days and helped to kickstart their blossoming career.
So, why not get involved yourself and apply to play a future Showcase gig there?
Details on how to apply are within The Stinger’s feature, linked above and also via The Forum’s website: http://www.twforum.co.uk/
What have you got to lose? And who knows what you may gain from applying?
