only been once but it seemed like a decent enough venue
Been there once, it's local to me so I'd go there more but they never play bands I want to see.
Still disappointing though. :(
I have played The Soundhaus more times than I care to remember and it is easily my favourite venue to play (and one of my favourites to attend as a punter.)
I'll definitely miss the place.
It's a really good venue, much better than the Roadmender in my opinion! I think a lot of new bands will miss Northampton out on tours now as the Roadmender will be to big for them to play unless they use the bar in the Roadmender which wouldn't be great!
been at uni in northampton for 3 years now and seen so many good bands there! the club nights there are ace as well, something which northampton lacks in big time! the place has been a saving grace! as someone said before though, no real music scene in northampton from what ive seen and i dont think enough people will care if it goes! the roadmenders ok, but lacks the intimacy and atmosphere of the soundhaus. a real shame.
There have been some brilliant things coming out of Northampton in the last few years; One Toy Soldier, Kapowski (rip), New Cassettes, Tanaou, My First Tooth, He Sold Space and loads more.
are also RIP!
Will they be giving Nick Cave an honorary doctorate?
As I used to work there....weird.
Think it was my favourite venue to work in, getting paid to see Jimmy Eat World was a major highlight.
Didn't they buy the Roadmender the other year...also, has the black sheep closed as well?
