Plug: Three Trapped Tigers, November 23rd
Instrumental trio Three Trapped Tigers’ experimental sound arrives at Plug this month. Their critically acclaimed, incendiary live shows sound gracefully intelligent and melodic, whilst remaining gargantuan in sound and primal in nature.
The Rocking Chair: Cassia, November 23rd

The Shakespeare: Mik Artistik’s Ego Trip, November 25th

The Leopard: Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash, November 26th
Martin Turner’s career has taken him from innovative bassist in Wishbone Ash to fronting his own solo act under a similar name. His latest album Written In The Stars was a return to the form that made him a star in 1970s with the band.
