Well that's August done and dusted.
What a very challenging, frustrating end it was with some sensational moments and some fantastic live events in between. I'll not dwell on it but some aspects of the last couple of weeks after a huge amount of work to get to this point after 18 months was a little underwhelming in return.
We know the challenges won't just stop as we move ahead in September and to our planned return to 7pm- 3am opening, and neither will the need for some basic mitigations from everyone to continue too by the looks of things.
We know what's going on elsewhere, we are not daft, blind or stupid and would be easy to say stuff it, but we will still be asking you to track and trace on entry also for masks to be used when coming in, moving about, going to the loo, GOING TO THE BAR and leaving at the end of the night. It's simply the right thing to do.
When you are stood or sat drinking and watching any of the live shows or upstairs in the rock club you won't be required to wear a mask or when dancing which for many will be the vast majority of the night.
Not too much of a hardship for a few minutes here and there during the night when moving about to pop a mask on so if it helps even a small amount reduce the risk of transmission then we will continually ask you to do it when at the Dread. Oh and there is the small point of it still being law across Scotland to do both.
SO 3am closing time is back from 3rd September. Hope you can handle it.
We also have some superb LIVE events coming your way that you are well advised to grab a ticket for in advance during September and kick off with SHE BURNS RED and FALLEN MAFIA
Some top internationally renowned bands, local legends and everything in between ALSO heading your way to go along with a damn good rocking upstairs EVERY FRIDAY and SATURDAY NIGHT.
One stand out event that many might scan past is FULLHOUSE play Frankie Miller. Frankie was a true Scottish legend and his music lives on thro some fantastic musicians who played with Frankie during the decades. Yes parts of the original FULLHOUSE will be with us for a show then onto the Barrowlands no less. With the likes of Ray Minhinnett, former UFO drummer Clive Edwards, former Bad Company guitarist DAVE Cowell joining in the fun and superb vocals from Gregor McGregor its not one to let go past as it may never happen again with this line up.
ALSO with one of our top gigs ALREADY SOLD OUT from THE QUIREBOYS many more are also heading that way too would say to Grab a ticket, support live music at Dreadnoughtrock and the bands you might never get a chance to see elsewhere.
