Valerie June We at Gig Junkies are big fans of Valerie June, as you may have noticed from our previous review, when she was supporting Jake Bugg. Tonight she’s playing the Rotonde, one of the fabulous Botanique venues in Brussels. All rather special, as this is her first major headline tour, on which she is launching her new album (out in the UK on 6th May).

Jake Bugg I’m one of those people who half-watches Later with Jools Holland. I mostly have it on in the background and show a vague passing interest in bands I like when they perform. The only real time I stood up and took notice was when a then relatively little known Jake Bugg was introduced on it. Hearing his voice and how different he was I knew then I wanted to see him live one day. When the opportunity arose to see him in Manchester, I was the first to put my hand up to attend. The Academy is probably the largest small venue in Manchester where you can see an artist before they get really big. It makes many gigs there a special occasion.
