We’ve always talked about supporting your local venue here in Thrash Hits. It’s all very well going and watching some keg-chugging flavour-of-the-month yankee metal band sell out the Brixton Academy every so often, but the real ugly, gritty, beautiful heart of heavy music in the UK comes from the smaller places – exactly the kind of places that are going under faster than ever. One such venue under threat is the Southampton Joiners – a venue that’s been crucial to the development of some of the South coast’s best heavy bands over the last decade. To that end, a whole host of bands have gotten together to hold a benefit show for the venue tomorrow night – and boy, if you’re local to Southampton, you are in for a treat. Yeah, you know who that promo photo is of.
