The Fleece is a happy mix of all the things that Itchy wants from a live music venue. Cosy but not claustrophobic, modern but not impersonal; this place is the stuff of dreams. Some might write it off as little more than a daft forum for cover bands, which might not be all that unjust come weekends. Yet it also showcases real talent both big and small. Even though names such as Regina Spektor and The Killers have graced its stage in the past, it is still committed to small, local bands which play for free every Monday and Tuesday.
