Dorey the Wise go Off Axis in Hastings

The Off Axis Network works by connecting like-minded musicians from across the UK, enabling them to ‘trade’ their audiences with one another, so they can play more shows, in more places, to more people. The idea of the network is to substantially increase the circulation of artists around the country and offer them the opportunity to build national fan bases. Barry Ashley writes about last week’s Dorey the Wise gig with the Rupees at the Albion.
