Now more than ever it’s time to support the businesses and people you think are remarkable. Vote with your feet and and your wallets where you can or some of them won’t be here in a week, let alone a month. I think a lot of music folk here in Dublin have been shocked into action by the upcoming closure of Road Records, and while a record shop closing is not that strange an occurance these days, Road was always more than that, a centre point for like minded community of independent music fans. It will be sorely missed by many, and my personal best wishes go out to Road’s owners Dave and Julie. Two nicer people you will never meeet.
Here are some people and places I support when I can. I hope you will too.
Circus, Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, Dublin 2, Ireland
Abaka, 6 rue de France, 06000 Nice, France
Conor, Mano, Ronan, and Graham – The guys from Carbon Dublin have moved onto bigger and better things
Pantibar, Capel Street, Dublin 1, Ireland
