Charlie Boyer And The Voyeurs are set to play a one-off Jack Daniel's JD Roots Homecoming show at London's Shacklewell Arms, in support of NME and Jack Daniel's annual search for Britain's Best Small Venue in association with Jack Daniel's JD Roots.

The band, who release their debut album 'Clarietta' next week (May 20), will headline the east London venue on June 6 with support coming from Loom. Speaking to NME about the gig, Charlie Boyer says: "We played there in February last year supporting Toy so it's going to be really cool to go back. The Shacklewell Arms is one of my favourite small venues too, it's always good for watching bands."

He added: "Without small venues, my band would be nowhere because we'd have no live experience…Being good live is important as that's where you learn the ropes. Small venues are completely essential."

Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs' gig is part of a three gig run which will also see The Family Rain headline their hometown Bath's Moles on June 13 and Scunthorpe's The Ruen Brothers playing at The Priory Hotel on June 20. For your chance to win tickets to all three shows visit now.

The search for Britain's Best Small Venue in association with Jack Daniel's JD Roots is well under way, with thousands of votes already counted. The shortlisted venues will be announced in next week's NME plus details of how you can help your favourite small venue win the coveted prize in 2013.

To vote for your favourite small venue head to now. While you're there you can also watch full interviews with the likes of Kasabian, Peace, Palma Violets, Johnny Marr, Suede, Tribes and Django Django as they talk about the venues that made them.
