TAKE ME TO CHURCH Gigs in the house of God? Amen! Re­li­gion just got rock ’n’ roll

Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Contents -

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.
