THE Wholls will headline a special NME small venue awareness gig at The Horn pub in St Albans this weekend.

The hotly-tipped Bedford four-piece will line-up alongside Crystal Head, Underview and Michael Hunt at the Victoria Street music venue on Saturday night.

NME is again running its small venue competition where music lovers get the chance to vote for their favourite venues.

The music magazine first launched the competition at The Horn with an intimate show by St Albans’ very own Friendly Fires in May 2011, and the pub got shortlisted as one of the UK’s best small music venues.

“We believe that we are still one of the best live music venues in the country and we have an amazing night lined up this Saturday featuring some amazing local talent to raise awareness of the competition to help us get shortlisted in this year’s competition,” said a spokeswoman.

Bands on the night will include dynamic urban rockers The Wholls, three-piece rock outfit Crystal Head, Hemel Hempstead indie band Underview and Hemel-based singer-songwriter Michael Hunt, who has supported Turin Brakes and Billy Lunn, of The Subways.

Tickets for the 18 plus gig cost £4 in advance and £6 on the door.
