Manchester nightclub 42s asks for new music from local bands to play once COVID’s over

42nd Street (more commonly known as 42s) has asked their Twitter followers to send them music, with the promise that if they like it, they’ll play it upon their reopening.

The Manchester nightclub, located in town on Bootle Street, is well known for playing the best of indie, rock and punk music. The venue has operated as a common source of refuge for nightclubbers who prefer the sound of a guitar rather than booming bass.

Although no one knows when exactly that will be at the moment, it’s positive to look towards the post-COVID future.

The club has been unable to operate since early 2020 when the COVID pandemic began. After the second national lockdown in November was announced, the club started a crowdfund page, claiming that they were facing a very real threat of having to close forever due to lack of income.

So far the page has raised over £21,700, which hopefully has been enough to provide the venue with some hope of reopening, hence their recent pledge.

Which club are you looking forward to returning to once the pandemic is over? Let us know @pieradiouk
