Preston is the North West's newest city, and home to some of the greatest emerging talent in the country. Aided by the Preston Music Collective, bands have made it their goal to put their city on the map alongside Liverpool and Manchester in terms of the local music scene.
To begin to achieve this, a special showcase has been organised to take
place at Liverpool's world famous Cavern Club on Mathew Street, featuring six of Preston's hottest new bands. The event is called 'Class of 2005' and Star 27, The Usuals, Baby Bitch, Sleepercell, The Stone Devils and The Phlegm Fatales are all set to take Liverpool by storm. The gig will start at 2pm on Sunday the 17th of April, entry is free, and the Cavern is open to all music lovers of all ages.
The gig has been organised by the recently conceived Preston Music
Collective. Andy Lyth, of the PMC, said “a lot of the bands in Preston have not yet had the chance to play in our neighbouring cities, so we made it our aim to give them an opportunity to play at the most famous venue in the world! This is going to be a really good day, and I anticipate there will be somewhat of a party atmosphere.”
A coach has been organised to take over 70 fans from Preston to Liverpool, setting off from The Mitre Tavern, Moor Lane, Preston at 11:30am. Anyone interested in reserving a ticket should contact Andy Lyth on 07941380446 or mail.
The gig will be followed by a return to Preston to an aftershow party at The Mitre's famous 'Tequila Sunday' night.
