Our Gig Guide for the coming weekend and week is broadcast on Riot FM at 4pm and repeated at 6pm every Friday.

Note: The "hometowns" and "genres" we use are the descriptions the bands use themselves on their webpage, Facebook, Bandcamp etc.

The symbol (??) means we couldn't find anything about them... (if you know, let us know...)
