The vibrant London live music scene is getting its first official airing on Twitter in August as the Twitgigs experiment begins.
On 6 August at The Vibe Bar, a battle-of-the-bands competition will take place featuring live on-screen Twitter feeds of the event.
The bands appearing — including Essay Like Nephew, The Seal Club Clubbing Club and Mike Dingham — have been picked because they already have a strong Twitter following, and Twitter users will vote for the winning band on the night.
The idea is that featuring an interactive Twitter stream should enhance the gig experience rather than detract from it. Fans who can’t get to venue in person can watch it online and, of course, join in on Twitter.
Twitgis can be followed on Twitter with #twitgigs being the hashtag.
