London’s Music Hot Spots…

Screen Shot 2017-11-14 at 13.20.40

London’s City Hall did a review on some of the capitals greatest places steeped in good music.

To help them explore the vast cities great spaces, City Hall interviewed music lovers that frequent these places to buy records, see live bands, join their mates & get down in.

Our Katherine chose our venue & favourite watering hole, The Social:

‘The Social is a gem of a music venue in central London. Tucked away from the chaos of Oxford Circus on Little Portland Street, it’s a haven to escape to after a busy day’s work. Its upstairs bar is friendly, with records being played out, sweet cocktails whipped up, and booths to kick back in for the night. The basement offers a stream of live music nights, literary evenings and a sweaty dance floor to lose yourself on. Plus, The Social has the world’s nicest sound guy, Tall Paul, who provides quality sound for any given night.’

⚓ SAVE THEKLA ⚓

PLEASE SAVE THEKLA!

Thekla is a legendary music venue. It has been crucial in bringing big & up-and-coming bands from all over and putting Bristol on the map as a place to tour. Promoters there have always given local bands opportunities to open for acts they admire. Thekla has been a hub for local festivals such as Harbourside festival, Brisfest, Dot To Dot and more recently the Art is Hard birthday party. AND It’s one of the only live music venues for touring bands I can think of in the country that’s on a boat…

Many Heavenly bands have played onboard, Temples, Hooton Tennis Club, The Wytches, TOY, The Orielles. The venue is a Heavenly favourite. 

It is now under threat from proposed residential developments…

“Across the UK, an estimated 35% of grassroots music venues closed down between 2007 and 2015, many due to issues like this.”

The Fleece, The Exchange and The Stag and Hounds have had similar issues.

Don’t let this happen to Thekla! Don’t let them ruin the Bristol music scene.
