Internet Radio Station, Melodic Distraction, Are Opening A New Studio, Bar & Coffee Shop in Liverpool Out Of Recycled Shipping Containers.
The new studio is based in the city’s up-and-coming Fabric District.
All profits from the bar will be reinvested into supporting Melodic Distraction Radio, its hosts and the Liverpool music scene. A grassroots music hub for artists to perform live on air and play lowkey gigs live in the space.
Having been forcibly pushed out of their old studio in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle last October, Melodic Distraction fundraised over £36,000 via Kickstarter to build a new studio, coffee shop and bar in the city’s up-and-coming Fabric District.
The top container houses Melodic Distraction’s radio studio and the bottom services the courtyard it sits on with coffee and a late night menu of beers, wines and cocktails. The space will be soundtracked by relooped Melodic Distraction Radio shows, in addition to DJ and live sets from artists on the station’s roster.
With almost 700 individual backers on Kickstarter, this space is a product of Liverpool’s strong sense of grassroots community spirit.
The space will serve daytime coffees and hot drinks throughout the week, before transitioning into an evening and night time hangout later from Thursdays through to Sundays.
A warm and welcoming hideaway from the busyness of the city centre, the space will host a range of community-focused events including; music workshops, dances, art exhibitions, record fairs and events that uplift local pockets of creativity.
