The venue is still listed on meanfiddler's site, anyone know if its ever going to open again?!
some of the best gigs ive ever been to have been in there :(
Meanfiddler and they said 'its closed for the foreseeable future' (apparently it shut on 24th July 2006). So safe to assume it'll be flats soon then!
Had some top nights there too, Radio4, Walkmen, Coopers (RIP).
Isnt there a Clash demo written about it that we can dig out and start a campaign?!
the air con was non-existent and it was badly laid out.
Would be a shame if it's never opening again though.
Think they're trying to sell it on to someone. I did hear the Buffalo Bar guys linked to that but I'm not sure.
Current deal (allegedly) is that MF feal it's LT's job to fix the roof and in a maverick move LT think their money should be spent on trains and stuff for all their passengers.
Hence MF have a 15 year lease on a property they reckon isn't worth spending money on or something. I guess that puts the 'mean' into Mean Fiddler, no?
where the sound was even remotely good. Upstairs the PA is devoid of bass response, and downstairs has the acoustic properties of a tin shed.
chase playedd an awesome show there a couple of years ago, also Cursive there was pretty damn good as well!! i always found it quite a decent venue, but every gig always seemed empty.
i was told last year that is was just closing down and the refurb was just some kind of 24esque cover up!!
so flats it is then :)
at the Garage years ago; superb gig. The Drips played there last year as well.
