"I especially like putting music on by up and coming bands to support them and to give the musicians a chance to play on stage.
"When live music is on, it's always packed out and seems to be popular with everybody.
"Next month we will begin Blues Of The Month, which will be staged every last Friday of the month."
Headliners The Finest Hour take to the stage at 10.30pm, showcasing their new album released on Preston-based label Hey Bert Records.
They have toured extensively throughout the UK, covering the north and Midlands, London and Scotland, taking in famous venues such as The Cavern Club in Liverpool, Half Moon in Putney, The Adelphi in Hull, Dry Bar in Manchester, Birmingham Barfly and Ginglik in Shepherds Bush.
Notable support slots include Mystery Jets, Neville Staple, Chris Helme and The Yards, Orphan Boy and the Brightlights, Harijan, The Lights and Zane Lowe.
Local musician Rob Boswell will be performing with his band Scarlett and Saffron which also includes Louis Kershaw on drums, Oliver Croft on bass guitar and Jamie Parker on lead guitar and vocals.
Rob said: "After a good half a year's worth of practising for four nights a week, we have finally booked our first gig at the Spider's Web.
"We formed around March earlier this year and each one of us has played in bands before. We have been very close to giving up, but after just nights practising, it became quite clear we all had the same goal, ambition and dream.
"We all have something to prove, whether it be to parents, old band members, teachers or friends. We all have the same drive to make something big."
Their influences range from American punk rock bands such as Alkaline Trio and Matt Skiba And The Sekrets, The Gaslight Anthem and Brand New, all the way to The Clash, The Pistols, The Ramones, and The Beatles and The Stones.
Rob added: "We are very happy to announce that we have written a set that we are all proud of, and we have spent the past month playing it over and over and over again, making it as tight and perfect as we possibly can, ready for this debut performance."
Admission is £4 on the door, and the gig opens at 7pm with music from DJs Drag and Drop.
