Nothing is black and white. We are, of course, absolutely delighted to announce that modern indiepop heroes Standard Fare are getting their much-deserved headline spot on the Popfest all-dayer on Saturday 2 March at the 100 Club. But we are also gutted that this is going to be their last ever show. Talk about going out on a high! They released a statement yesterday announcing their demise. We are thankful they were ever around and left us two fantastic albums and unforgettable live moments.
