Chris Cheney, The Living End
As an audience member, my favourite show at the Corner, and one of the highlights of my life, was seeing Joe Strummer there in 2002. It was the kind of electric show that gave me goose bumps. It was a pretty special moment being in the presence of one of the all-time greats playing his heart out in such an intimate environment. Whether playing a gig, seeing a gig or just having a couple of pots at the front bar, the Corner is hard to beat.
Here’s to 10 more years of cold beer and hot gigs. In this age of the disappearing venue we should just celebrate it for existing.
