In 2005 The Horrors put Southend-on-Sea on the map as something much more than a stereotypical Essex town. Three albums and a Mercury Prize nomination later, it’s something that Jack Daniels are celebrating next month, with the launch of JD Roots.

Recognising the importance of what a home town means to independent music, JD Roots will take The Horrors back to Southend’s tiny Chinnery’s venue for a one-off show on May 9th. Similarly, the series will host a show for Twin Atlantic on May 3th at King Tuts Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow, and for The Cribs at The Theatre Royal, Wakefield, on May 16th.

Jack Daniels will bring their taste of home to the series too, in the form of Tennessee based femme fatales The Black Belles play their debut UK gigs. And each headlining band will also invite a home town new band of their choice onto the bill.

Tickets for all the shows are extremely limited and you and a guest can go to any of them (plus transport) for free, but answering the below question.
