STOURBRIDGE indie three-piece Echo Gecco are set to headline Claptrap The Venue next month.

The band, whose writing style has been described as genre-defying, blend jazzy guitar riffs with rock undertones, delivered with the energy of punk.

They will be taking to the stage at the popular music venue in Stourbridge High Street on Friday May 13, supported by storyteller/singer Vincent Whyte.

A spokesperson for the band said: "Echo Gecco appear to be set on keeping the strong tradition of Stourbridge artists who explore the less obvious, while harnessing a widely appealing sound and energy."

Tickets are £5 via the Claptrap website, or on the door (availability permitting).
