SUPPORT SCARED TO DANCE

The last six months have been incredibly challenging here at Scared To Dance.

Unfortunately we’re still no closer to knowing when we’ll be promoting club nights and live music again. It’s going to be difficult to run events with severely limited capacities in medium to small sized venues with the current social distancing measures for a number of reasons. 

If you would like to your support what we do you can now buy our long sold out archive of fanzines as PDFs on Bandcamp. You can pay what you like for the five fanzines available.

Our Summer 2010 Fanzine has interviews with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Allo Darlin’, Standard Fare, Betty and the Werewolves, Darren Hayman and comes with an exclusive EP from The Understudies.

The Autumn 2010 Fanzine leads with an interview with Cats on Fire plus The Specific Heats, Tender Trap, Shrag, Pocketbooks, The Blanche Hudson Weekend, Moustache of Insanity and a previously unreleased 5-track EP from Odd Box Records called Bless Me Iggy For I Have Sinned.

In our Winter 2010/11 Fanzine we talk to The Vaselines, Edwyn Collins, Ballboy, Northern Portrait, MJ Hibbett & the Validators and Onward Chariots.

The Spring 2011 Fanzine features interviews with Acid House Kings, Butcher Boy, Help Stamp Out Loneliness, The Felt Tips and Horowitz.

Our Indietracks Special 2011 Fanzine has an interview with headliners Herman Dune plus Suburban Kids With Biblical Names, Crystal Stilts, Math and Physics Club and Milky Wimpshake.

Thanks for your support and we hope to be back as soon as possible!
