This coming Friday (April 21st), The Pearlfishers with BMX Bandits and guests have a show at The Panopticon, 115 Trongate, Glasgow. Audience is limited to something like 60 and entry is by donation.
"This Friday we're doing a little benefit in that most romantic and famous of Glasgow hidden treasures - The Panopticon Theatre, abandoned for 80 years or so and still more or less intact, above Mitchell's Amusement Arcade on Argyle Street in the Trongate. It's where Stan Laurel famously made his stage debut and the boards welcomed Cary Grant, Dan Leno and others. If you watched BBC's Restoration show you will have seen the Panopticon narrowly miss the lottery millions. Well, that's not going to stop us, is it? Pearlfishers, BMX Bandits, Rainbow Family, Ally Kerr and Carol Laula will be there at about 7pm on 21st April to raise some cash for this amazing place. Shivers down the spine stuff. Anyway, the capacity is 60 people maximum and it's free at the door. Come early. The benefit part is that you make a donation on the night and it goes to the campaign to keep the Panopticon alive."
