...are the bane of existence.
I was all geared up and excited to see Yoooofmovies and Let's Wrestle tonight at Proud Gallaries in Camden, it being my last night out for a while with exams and all. But the organisers finally decided to email back and affirm that it is 'strictly over-18s' despite the fact that it says no where on website or flyer.
I'm pretty disappointed as you can tell, especially as it was only a fiver for such great bands.
But it's not a one-off either, it's happened to me all to often in last month (including already once with Youthmovies). I've missed out seeing: Johnny Foreigner, LC! (4 London dates NONE of which are under 19), DANANANANAYKROYD, Chromeo,Holy Fuck... and more.
I know most people's attitude is 'GOOD, FAAACKING SKINS-TEENAGERS RUIN MY GIGS' but that's just terribly elitist.
Anyone else have any bad experiences/disappointments due to 18+ gigs?
