EXCITEMENT is building as the Village Pump in Trowbridge hosts its first gig of the year on Friday.

Dave McPherson, the front man of early 00’s and seminal British rock band, InMe, is headlining the night at the Lamb in Mortimer Street.

He will be joined by rock guitarist Mitch Underwood and singer songwriter Alice McNeil, in a varied mix of performances.

Mr McPherson, who has graced the front pages of Kerrang!, Rock Sound and NME, is on his fifth solo album, after numerous pledge and crowd funding campaigns, he always hits his targets with ease, having such a dedicated fan-base.

Sheer Music promoter Kieran Moore said: “This show is happening in the coolest little space and if you don’t know already, the venue has a second floor with red velvet cinema-style chairs and walls adorned with old brass instruments.

“It’s a really striking venue and near perfect environment to experience some fun, intimate live music.

“I cannot wait for the night to begin. We have three fantastic acts, who all compliment each other really well.

“To me personally, Trowbridge is like a sleeping musical giant. 15 years ago or so, the place was a great location for music but it has died down a bit.

“We want to bring it back and acts like these can certainly help with that because at the moment it is lying dormant.”

Tickets will be available on the door, priced £7, but you can still pick up advance tickets costing £5 from www.WeGotTickets.com.

Doors open at 8pm. Mitch Underwood from Devizes takes to the stage from 8.45pm to 9.15pm, Alice McNeil from 9.30pm to 10pm and Dave McPherson from 10.15pm to 11pm.
