If you asked me to pick a reason as to why I love this city so much, it would definitely be for its vibrant art scene – closely followed by The Grecian. So many artists rely on studio spaces in order to create their work; sadly last month studio holders were left distraught after a fire broke out at a warehouse on Netham Road, which was home to several practicing artists and also used as a rehearsal space. The building wasn’t insured thus leaving the artists without gear.
There will be a fundraiser held at The Louisiana on 18th January with bands that sadly lost their practice room – Flag Fen and Lightning Sharks – along with a special BEAK> DJ set not to mention covers by the Corrs courtesy of the staff at the Louie.
