Who thinks the local music scene is dead. Certainly not us. Could we use some coming together and community involvement? Certainly it could. That is exactly what is happening on Elm Street in Manchester. Luke Troy, you might know him from the band Badfellows, along with some of his good friends are working on opening a second hand store in Manchester that will host all ages music shows. The store will also host artist workshops, poetry reading, open mics and basically anything that will support local art. They are currently working on all the applications and permits and crap but like but they need your help.
Opening a store costs money. Just like a getting a new apartment, there is rent, cost for cleanup, soundproofing, insurance, fees and all that crappy stuff. This is where you come in, the community. They are asking for your help. Any help you can give. They have started a Go Fund Me page that you can find here; https://www.gofundme.com/2tuppuk4
The new store has already surpassed its goal of raising 2 grand in the first 24 hours of going live. At the time of this story, it was looking at reaching 3k soon. They are hoping to open very soon (probably before the end of the year). Take a second and check them out. If you can’t or don’t wish to spare a buck, spare a facebook share or tell a friend.
