VENUEWATCH: Academy chain grows

The increasing homogenisation of the UK live music scene continues with the opening of the lager-sponsored Academy chain's new outpost in Newcastle. To mark the event (we're not sure if 'celebrate' is quite the right word) there's going to be a big ribbon-cutting event featuring The Futureheads, Field Music and Kubichek. 14th October is the date to pencil onto your face.
