Mark Bennett (CROSSHAIR BOOKING AGENCY) - One's to watch in 2012.

NOTE: I've tried to dig out and add links to the artists included below but if you are included below and would like links to be changed/added or Twitter etc adding please email and let me know the details.

Everyone seems to have an opinion on musical acts that they think might do rather well next year and some cracking lists have been around, but most of them contain the same people over and over.
Last Year my list included Tribes, Anna Calvi, The Milk, Wu Lyf, Vaccines, Treetop flyers amongst others and some of them didn’t do too bad.

You can follow Mark on twitter to keep up with the bands that he's booking and putting on and also just to chew the fat about new bands and his recomendations.  He's on @chbookingagency

I can vouch for a few of these bands and hope to be featuring them soon.  In the mean time I'll be checking the rest out.  You should too.
