UK club ‘Spray Shop’ celebrates the power of intimacy in new mini-documentary

Over in the UK, Liverpool’s newest small club Spray Shop has released a mini-documentary, ‘Why Small Clubs Matter‘, celebrating the power of intimacy in the music community. Watch it for free on YouTube below.

In the midst of club closures and the dominance of large-scale events and festivals, Spray Shop founder Kyle Muldoon wanted to pay homage and celebrate the resilience of small clubs and the indelible mark they leave on the music industry.

While the industry wrestles with challenges, Muldoon believes in the indispensable role of small clubs as a pulsating heart within the music community. Recognizing the significance of these intimate spaces, the Spray Shop has partnered with the acclaimed photographer and director, Megan Jepson to create the short film.

The initiative is backed by the Night Time Industries Association (NTIA) whose CEO Michael Kill explains:

“I am fervently committed to championing the vital role that grass roots venues and clubs like Spray Shop in Liverpool, play as the beating heart of our communities and the very essence of UK club culture. These intimate spaces serve as incubators for creativity, enabling emerging artists to refine their talents and establish themselves on the cultural landscape.’’

”Moreover, these venues act as social hubs, fostering a sense of belonging and unity among diverse groups of people. They provide a canvas for cultural expression, where music, art, and identity intertwine, creating an environment that celebrates our shared values and individuality alike. Preserving and supporting these spaces is not just about sustaining an industry; it’s about safeguarding the soul of our communities and upholding a legacy of innovation that has defined British nightlife for generations.”

To align with the release of the video Spray Shop has announced artists for their Autumn/Winters programming which kicks off on September 2nd with Rossko, Subb-An and CHKLTE. 

Other confirmed acts for the season include KILIMANJARO, Laidlaw, Julian Anthony, Koko, Lauren Lo Sung, Shonky, Koko, Sorely, Subb-An, Rossko, Laidlaw, Fat Tony, Gettoblaster + many more TBA.

Since its opening, the club has welcomed artists such as Archie Hamilton, Richy Ahmed and Mason Collective through its doors.
