The Family Rain played a JD Roots homecoming gig at Moles in Bath last night (June 13), playing alongside fellow local act Pylo.

Returning to the 220-capacity venue where they first made their name, the three brothers played an 11-song set that opened with 'Carnival' and featured songs taken from their recent 'Pushing It' EP. Their set finished with a raucous version of their debut single 'Trust Me... I'm A Genius'. During the song lead singer and bassist Will Walter left the stage and played among the audience. The band, who recorded their forthcoming debut album at Berlin's Hansa Studios earlier this year, recently announced a full UK tour.

The Family Rain's gig was part of a series of shows which have also seen Maximo Park, Miles Kane and Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs' play homecoming shows at small venues. The Jack Daniel's JD Roots homecoming shows will conclude with Scunthorpe's The Ruen Brothers playing at The Priory Hotel on June 21. For your chance to win tickets to that show visit now.

Southampton Joiners has been announced as Britain's Best Small Venue by NME in association with Jack Daniels' JD Roots. Following last month's announcement of the final shortlist, more than 76,000 votes were cast by NME and NME.COM readers. To celebrate, local hero Frank Turner will headline Southampton Joiners for a special one-off show. He will play the 200-capacity venue on June 24.
