The Beatles and The Cavern Club – Liverpool

Liverpool’s Cavern Club opened on 16 January 1957 as a jazz club, later becoming a centre of the rock and roll scene in Liverpool in the early 1960s. It is the cradle of British Pop Music. Impressively, 60 years after it’s foundation, it survives and thrives as a contemporary music venue. The Beatles first played here on Thursday 9 February 1961 and after this performance they made another 291 appearances at the club. The Cavern Club celebrated its 60th year in 2017 and their ethos has very much been about the Past, Present and Future.

I wish to be remembered for my humour and my passion and above all, my ability to go from angel to asshole in 3.5 seconds but always for something I truly believe in. I will … Continue reading I wish that girls embrace their power

Venue for queer women in London

“I was sick of settling with what we had,” says founder Teddy Edwardes, “which was not a lot.” Now, it will have a permanent home with a capacity of 350, resident DJs, live music, performances and an outside garden. It will be open three nights a week – for now – with more added as attendance grows.  With very little space in the world for queer women, non-binary and trans folk to embrace their sexuality, and the double whammy of misogyny and homophobia to beware of, safety is paramount.  Keenly aware of this, DJ Nadine Artois (whose pronouns are they/them) set … Continue reading Venue for queer women in London
