21st February 2013, Ten Feet Tall, Cardiff
The Association of Independent Music (AIM) is excited to announce details of the next ‘AIM Social’, the monthly gathering for the independent music community. This month The Social moves out of its regular haunt of East Village in London, to pay a visit to the vibrant music scene in Cardiff on Thursday 21st February 2013. 
To celebrate the wealth of label talent in Wales, Welsh Music Foundation are bringing together a selection of independent labels to show and sell their wares in the unique underground setting of Undertone, beneath Ten Feet Tall, between 4.00pm and 6.30pm. 
The AIM Social will then run upstairs in Ten Feet Tall from 6.00pm – 10pm and will see Future of the Left (Xtra Mile Recordings), Mark Thomas (Shape Records) and Matt Jarrett (Diverse Records) hit the decks to give a unique insight into the music that inspires them.  
If you're just finishing work or you're heading to the city centre, why not browse, discover, talk releases and buy local at the record fair, grab a bite to eat in Ten Feet Tall's bar and then hit the top floor for the main event from AIM.
AIM Socials are open to independent labels and the wider music industry. Whether you’re a band, working in digital music, running a label or a student aspiring to join the industry – come along!  Places are free, but highly limited.  Register quickly before they’re all gone!

A strict guestlist for The AIM Social will be in operation on the night, so everyone wishing to attend should be sure to register in advance.
