Local live music promoters Fat Out have grown from humble beginnings to be one of the city’s most challenging and beguiling players in the independent music scene. Inspired by the DIY scene in Milton Keynes, Fat Out have maintained their strong principles of putting on riotous music of the most pleasurable kind, as well as eliminating any speck of elitism in their shows. Earlier this year they set up home at Islington Mill’s Event Space to embark upon a two year programming residency, and FAT OUT’S BURROW have curated an eclectic line-up for the month:
