We all want to #stopthespread, we also know this is a tough time for everyone including our local entertainment industry. Not only are small independents like The Rigger unsure if they'll be able to re-open, Musicians and Entertainers alike have lost income due to shows being cancelled. 

We wanted to do something to help us all through to the other side together (and if nothing else maybe raise a few spirits along the way).

The Rigger has teamed up with some of the best local bands the area has to offer to create this original material compilation album 'Smells like community spirit'. 

Spanning various genres smells like community spirit brings you some of the best musical talent our area has to offer - all for just £5!

Featuring music from: Hand of Omega, Space Witch, Wolves in Alcatraz, Jesse's Divide, Bang Bang Firecracker, Circus Junkie Rebels, Quiet the Thief, Lesbian Bed Death and Infinity.

All proceeds will be spilt evenly between everyone involved .... #supportyourscene
