although last time I went to Kingston it took me about three zillion hours to get home, so it had better be worth the risk of this happening again...
i might drag a whole load of friends along and make a night of it.
has anyone been to this 'New Slang' club before? looks like it could actually be good...
or do you think i'll have to buy in advance for everyone that wants to go?
i assume i will meet you then.
i am definitely going, as i have friday off work. also i bought a ticket from the banquet records website this morning, although i have no idea how i redeem it as the order email they sent me didn't have a reference number or anything. um.
HOW THE FUCK DO I GET THERE?!?!?!
how much does the national rail cost? can i use my oyster?
or £1 with YP railcard.
no oyster i don't think.
it's dead cheap.
and there's a nightbus from kingston to trafalgar square.
does anyone know if I will have to buy tickets in advance for this, or can i just turn up on thursday with a load of friends and not be turned away??
so I reckon you should be fine. Though to be honest I don't really know anything.
it's at a PROPER nightclub, not some sweaty indie dive.
i'll probably just turn up reasonably early then and get tickets on the door.
if i can't though i'm coming for YOU dan(s)
considering they only sell tickets through the banquet records website and not through see / wegottickets etc, i would guess it's large a pay-on-the-door thing!
yeah your probably right
oooohh its gonna be a good night
N87 FTW was a valid postcode.
kingston is in zone 6 of the london travel zone so you can get there with an all zones travelcard. It's about a 20 minute train from Waterloo / Clapham Junction as I remember.
not for this reply as it seems to be wrong but to toby.
i'll be staying in my friends spare room at roehampton university it seems. exciting!
in the way that it is right?
just wondering what aspect. I'm pretty sure I'm right about where Kingston is and how to get there!
said you couldn't use an oyster card...neither did you reading it again but yeah it's not the answer i want so it's wrong.
but its the answer YOU ASKED FOR.
but i'll accept it because i'm afraid you'll hit me.

oh yeah, you were replying to that question, not the other one.
i'm sorry dan_thw :D
damn you lucky people of kingston. :)
i.e. with me :) i really don't know how to get to places...
what time they'll be on stage?
A night bus journey from Kingston sounds both fun and completely and utterly harrowing at the same time.
on a now-discontinued route that went over the thames THREE TIMES. my ex got happy slapped.
so are you going gunners? I can probably be persuaded if company is involved
i might be going
and we live near each other
company all the way home baby!!
it was cool!
i completely forgot about that until now. it's pissed me off ALL OVER AGAIN. cunts.
I WAS SLEEPING
i wanted someone to talk to.
to this with a bunch of mates.
It's nice to get a gig my end of town...back home to Richmond on the 65 bus.
Banquet tomorrow, they're a nice bunch they should be able to help.
They put on the night.
and very good it was too, but from talking to Gareth he seemed to think doors were at 8:30 (even though it's listed as 9:00) which probably means my band (4 or 5 Magicians) will be on at about 8:31 so if everyone who is going could be there by 8:30 that would be legendary, it would be nice to actually be playing to some people! If not, then 9:00 sounds good, I think I might lock myself in the toilet if they try and make me go on any earlier than that.
I meant to ages ago
You are REALLY REALLY good!!!
I think you JAGGED your band ages ago and it was one of the best JAGS yet.
Top stuff, honestly.
Take a totter up to Glasgow, we'd love to see you here.
I try my best. Actually that isn't true, but I still write some quite good songs nonetheless I suppose.
We're doing a tour in April and we did get offered a Glasgow gig. It didn't look possible, but now it might be - just about to send a message to the guy who asked.
So maybe see you in April!
mainly because I'm playing, but even if I wasn't I'd still definately go to this gig!
by the bassatron 5000 bass machine for this gig.
or just london?
but the venue got switched and as far as I'm aware the new venue refused to have us on the bill for whatever reason.
So we're only doing Kingston (thursday) and Portsmouth (saturday).
that's a shame, i onder why? they let three bands play there with late of the pier, they obviously hate you dan!
going to get a tube station in the next few years? I'd loved to have gone to the LC! gig but the prospect of 4 nightbuses home was just too much to deal with.
cannot WAIT for this gig tomorrow. interviewing Jofo before hand as well. gonna be so so so good. New Slang is one of the best nights out ever.
happy hour between 9pm and 10pm as well so get there early innit. £2 for every drink.
And what time were LC! onstage? I live in Surbiton you see, but my proper job prevents me from staying out too late on school nights. They get so many great bands on at New Slang I've often been tempted to go down, but I get the feeling the headliners don't go onstage until really late, with it being a club night and all.
I may have been a bit drunk
They were on about 11:30 I think.......?
I still can't get my head around an indie night in the Works. I haven't been there since 2001.
because someone was shot their last year. So yes, it is that kind of place.
were charming too
and i totally love johnny foreigner, but they didnt sound so great live? It might have a been a bit to do with Alexi being drunk, but I heard from friends who've seen them before that it wasnt their strongest performance?
Also, im not sure if i met anyone from here? I was introduced to some people, but it was all quite brief, I was wearing a brown tellison t-shirt (i have a strnage feeling I will have met someone from here)...
i met you, when i was trying to hide from Del and his horrific jailbait action.
I had a feeling it might have been you actually, I cant remember if you said you were trying to go back to north london after new slang? Hope you made it back ok!
i live in kentish town. i left new slang at 2 and got home at 4:30 :D
was that beofre or after I commanded the audience to dance?
then i ran out of the crowd because i realised i really didn't want to dance. hi!
of shouting at people to dance when I'm drunk :(
Thanks for the guestlist action!
gareth wants everyone to think he's a nice person so thank him instead.
he wasn't shouting at me, he was shouting at EVERYONE.
i am so glad i spent the entire evening upstairs. what time did you get home?
about half four i think? i had to wait AGES for a bus on tottenham court road and a scary man at the bus stop kept staring at me and punching the bus shelter.
i got in just before five. up again at seven. i want to die. genuinely die. real death. it was worth it though!!!!!!!!!!!except not at all
and woke up just before Vauxhall when I then tried to convince Jason to go to Fire. Thank fuck he said no.
so much :D
what time did you leave?
We were lucky with the buses, was in bed for 3 I think
with the monday morning queues and the crack man :D
for basically being the dodgiest place ever?
