Paisley’s Paolo Nutini set to wow fans with unique gig in town’s record store
Paolo Nutini is giving 60 fans the chance to see him play a tiny one-off show in a Paisley record store.
The singer wants to boost his local shop Feel The Groove, on Causeyside Street, by staging the unique show for people who buy music there.
Paolo told the Sunday Mail: “We want to encourage that thing of making the trip to your local record store. It’s easy enough to go on iTunes or Spotify and get a song.
“It’s not like I have a record out I’m trying to sell. The idea is you buy any music in the shop, you spend a fiver, you get a token. A tenner you get two, £20 you get four.
“Each token is a chance to win – they go in the hat and 30 people are picked. Each gets to bring somebody along to the in-store show.
I like the idea of rocking up with a kit and a couple of amps and doing it as a four-piece but keeping it electric.
“We will get in, have a chance to say hi and maybe conjure up a couple of surprises too.”
The promotion is already running and you have until the shop closes on Monday, October 16, to take part.
The intimate show will take place on October 19, the day before Paolo plays a sold-out Paisley Abbey show for charity as part of The Spree arts fest.
The shop’s site was home to the legendary Apollo Records, where Paolo performed in 2006.
He’s teamed up with new owner Gavin Simpson to try to raise cash to pay for a Feel The Groove sign by local artist Rachel Miller.
