Shop Local Southampton Listings 10 January 2023

2023-01-10, Chris

In the week that Wild Front are playing their last gigs in Southampton - or indeed anywhere - for the foreseeable future, Southampton's warming up for a new year of entertainment. There's Halo-inspired deathcore from the US, a local sax and harmonica duo, blues, punk, an experimental ensemble at Arches Studios, and Lego and Steampunk meetups. It's vitally important that we support local whenever we can especially at a time where every penny counts, both for ourselves and our favourite businesses and artists. Thanks for continuing to share the word about Shop Local Southampton and all the great events happening in our vibrant city.

Jack Whitehall's in town and he's brought his family. There's loads of DJ nights on Saturday, with Soul 45 offering up soul, The Hill bringing the rave, Tribal Drum Syndicate handling the DnB and a Reggae Roots Dance at The Alexandra. Elsewhere, there's the Southampton Ukulele Jam Christmas Cabaret at The 1865, and Baga Chipz is at The Engine Rooms with Tanya Hyde for a drag interpretation of Abba. On Thursday night, conscious rapper Amy Be launches her first EP at Whiskey Blue. Whatever you get up to, have a great week Southampton!
