BAD PAINTINGS & THE INKWELL Present:
The First Ever York Indie Record Label Fayre
Saturday March 29th
There is a very strong DIY indie scene in York right now. The back-bone of this scene is the growing number of record labels putting out… local & international material. As a showcase for these hard-working folk, we’ve teamed up with The Inkwell to hold an Indie Label Fayre at the end of March.
