Melton Gig Guide: March 9 to 11 - Melton Times

If you're looking for some live music to blow away the cobwebs of another dreary week at work, head down to the Noels Arms on Friday to see Plug perform. Plug play 60s and 70s pop, punk, indie, rock and new wave from The Beatles to the Buzzcocks and back. There's no bells or whistles, just guitar, bass, drums and vocals. A beer and a bop, what's not to like.
