Our second day of interviews continues with Crystal Tides and The People’s Lounge. It is so important to support local bands and musicians as it’s their grassroots that helps them to feel local support that then helps accelerate their music on a national and international level.
Supporting your local music scene from bands to venues, promoters, rehearsal spaces, recording spaces and beyond has never been so important. Before lockdown, Portsmouth’s music scene was flourishing and the strongest it’d ever been regarding live music with gigs happening left, right and centre. There was a point that there were so many gigs happening that we’d be torn between splitting our time between up to three gigs over one evening!
