Have there been any “I was there” moments?

‘Jake Bugg and Catfish and The Bottlemen are the two most memorable gigs I have watched in Pj Molloys. Both were interviewed live on Radio 1 from the venue, Jake Bugg was number 1 in the album charts at the time and for Catfish ‘Rango’ was the hottest record in the world on Zane Lowe. They were moments for the venue that will live with me for a long time.’ – Calum Miller, from Weekend Revolution

Right next door to the venue is a great Indian restaurant, Khushi’s and is always a favourite with gig goers.
