anyone been to a gig there recently (since they put in a stage)? if so, what was it like?
with lots of 12 year old children of steptoe running around.
and the place stank of vodka and redbull.
i was, obviously, in heaven.
how's it for gigs?
I know Horsebox have played there. Ask Ehwhat, if he's about.
singing along to Fairytale of New York. does that count?
before Gay For Johnny Depp. It was ok, bit cramped. The sound was good though.
sound is horrific.
my mates band (who were good as far as small london bands go) and some really quite bland supports with lots of friends. I guess this is the usual fare there as everyone got a really good reception despite being painfully dull pub indie. Place was packed out with mates and stuff though, quite a fun atmosphere.
However, the layout is crap, it's really really small, literally just a pub with a small stage.
Assuming you are thinking of putting a gig on there, I'd only go for it if it was free, other free to hire venues weren't available, and the band you are putting on has no fans but a few friends.
Don't do it.
Especially if the promoter is called Malcolm Griffiths.
You've been warned, and if memory serves you were the one who did the Ditto thread so you should know about cunts in the music industry.
not him. it would be during the camden crawl.
