New Night Communion to Become Part of Manchester Music Heritage
In the summer of 2006, Communion was born in London's Notting Hill Arts Club, growing into a night where musicians and fans alike could flourish in this sassy and communal circuit. Communion provided a fresh independent platform for up and coming musicians to show what they had, evolving with their fans and giving an important leg up on the musical ladder.
This monthly night has seen plenty of familiar faces in the past, from Laura Marling to The Holloways and Noah and the Whale. The night became such a success that it even founded its own record company, Communion Records, creating a unique label that encourages artists to work at their own pace. After slowly spreading from city to city including Bristol, Leeds and even as far as Syndey in Australia and New York, Communion has finally hit Manchester! Setting base in Night and Day's venue in the Northern Quarter, the first Thursday of every month will see the best of new and eclectic music to treat anyone up for a feel good night out.
Communion's opening night took place on the 2nd February and provided a sold-out gig with smashing reviews; there are high hopes for this new night, and word of mouth alone has already set this night up as one that's here to stay. As one reviewer commented, Communion 'looks set to become an intergral part of Manchester's gig diary and heritage'.
With it's laid back, feel good vibes, both the audience and artists can look forward to boundaries being pushed in the name of honest and fun entertainment.
