The Autumn Store is Birmingham’s night of classic and new indiepop, DIY pop, modern left-field indie type stuff, C86, and other songs we think sound pretty.
It was started in January 2006 by a cat called Wembley (pictured) although a devious mouse by the name of Minty tries to thwart his every lovable plot (not pictured – he’s simply TOO devious to be caught on camera).
The night is sometimes a DJ night only we mainly put on bands and do the indiediscodancing thing afterwards into the early hours.
