TAKE ME TO CHURCH Gigs in the house of God? Amen! Religion just got rock ’n’ roll
Remember that time your nan claimed The Libertines performed in her care home* and you double-checked her meds? Well, turns out she was on to something. With concert venues closing quicker than Mr Burns’s wallet, the music industry is hunting out new inventive gig locations, from churches to shops. Selfridges, London, is currently hosting live music in its basement, Manchester’s Old Granada Studios is also a hot spot for gigs, while Zebedee’s Yard, a refurbished car park in Hull, is the concert venue of the north-east. As for that Libertines story? Totally true.
