Another one bites the dust – The Gaff to close
The reason for its closure? Yet another Costa Coffee outlet (because there isn’t enough of them?) after a take over of the site premises. This news was dropped on the staff at the Holloway Road venue this Wednesday.
A lot of the scheduled gigs will be taking place at The Dome in Tufnell Park. The venue managers commented: “Sunday the 23rd (January) is going to be our last day. Got a deal with The Dome and most of our shows are going to be shifted over there. I’ll still be checking The Gaff email account firstname.lastname@example.org and also making a new one for the Dome.”
Pure Rawk has held many gigs at The Gaff and it has been a growing name on the underground scene since it opened a couple of years ago. It kept its prices low so we were able to keep putting stuff on and it will be a hard void to fill after it is gone. We wish the venue staff and management (Gary and Tony) the very best in their futures.
