You wouldn't normally associate Preston, Lancashire, with the world of indiepop gigs, but hold on right there, comrades, because the mysterious Rico is set to change that. He's putting on some ace shows up there this summer, including:
28th June. 9pm Darren Hayman/Mick Travis
16th July. 8pm. The Monochrome Set and Factory Star
24rh July. The Middle Ones and Best Friends Forever
7th August. The Loft and a screening of The Upside Down Creation Records documentary.
All the gigs are at The Continental Pub in Preston. Gig-starved Prestonians (is that right?) can start rejoicing now.
More people should do this kind of thing in unglamorous locations. Not that I'm saying Preston doesn't have its glamour, you understand
