Antonio Villaraigosa and Frontiers - Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Frontiers Magazine publisher, David Stern and Mark Hundah Sunday 22nd April 2012 celebrate Frontiers Magazine 30th Anniversary held at Eleven
'Introducing' gigs in their nature are typically nights to avoid, usually containing a line-up consisting of a headliner with new-found and short-lived label backing and local bands that will ensure a half-decent turnout. Fortunately Dean Jackson of BBC Radio Nottingham's 'The Beat', is a man free of agenda and one of the East Midlands' foremost promoters of new music, and so his Glastonbury warm-up show was a welcome exception to the rule, and an indication that Nottingham might finally, FINALLY, have serious hopes of making a tangible impact on the wider music scene.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
