Regular readers and podcast listeners will no doubt be aware of the inimitable Tara Busch - we've been lucky enough to have her perform twice at the Sonic offices during Nick's regular podcasts, but those not yet fortunate to experience Tara's music first hand will have a chance in London this coming Friday 11 March.
Tara, along with Imogen Heap and Micachu, will be playing at the Southbank Centre as part of the WoW - Women of the World series of events.
Here's some info from the Southbank Centre:-
