Discover… Indie: This December


Every month we’re highlighting the best up and coming artists in different genres. December’s gig guide is offering a great selection of indie artists that we couldn’t help but share…

The Lathums

Rising youngsters The Lathums only formed a year ago but are already being met with success after success, even counting Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess and former Verve drummer/current Charlatans drummer Pete Salisbury as fans. When they sold out their very first Manchester show at Jimmy’s this July, it was mere indication of what was yet to come. Their smooth, melodic tunes have lead to this tour being extended due to many dates selling out at an incredible rate. If your city still has tickets left, don’t miss out!
