With the very existence of the live music community at threat due to an almost year-long closure across the nation, venues continue to battle for survival. Spaces not only for fresh-faced artists to hone their craft but for communities to come together, express themselves, revel in the freedom live music brings and form lifelong relationships – its absence has been a devastating kick for so many. With many venues on the brink of closure, it’s now more important than ever to support these spaces so we can all dance together again.
One such venue is The Priory. A vital beating heart on Glasgow’s Sauchiehall Street, The Priory has become recognised as a hotbed of the latest and greatest sounds coming out of Scotland’s alternative scene and the place to go whether you’re at your highest high or lowest low – The Priory is always there. A launching pad for acts such as Gerry Cinnamon (whose Jam Nights have become legendary across the city) and vibrant new artists like Lucia & The Best Boys, The Ninth Wave, The Dunts and The Van T’s to the unbridled home of Baby Strange’s famed Club Sabbath club nights – The Priory has become an unrivalled destination welcoming all into its famed surrounds as a home away from home for so many.
Its survival during these times is undeniably vital for entire generations across not only Glasgow but the country as a whole. Enter Liam Gallagher, British icon and undeniable people’s champion who sits as one of the biggest British artists of the past three decades – who today is announcing a special fund-raising prize draw for the revered venue. Offering up a true fan’s dream for a once in a lifetime prize, one lucky winner will take home:
John Jokey, legendary owner of The Priory said:
“We can’t thank Liam enough for his generosity, it will be a huge help in keeping us going until we can put on live music again and get back to supporting up and coming musicians. We’d also like to thank This Feeling for their continued support”
