so my friend doesnt turn 18 till a few months. how "tight" are both these places on id?
but you should be alright at the Old Blue, as long as you don't look about 14-15. There's enough dodgy shit going on in there for them to start worrying about 17 year olds.
Not sure about The Scala, it's much more of an official venue so I can imagine they're a bit tighter. Not that I've had to worry about ID for years. Back in the day, I'm sure nowhere really cared about gigs. The first time I saw a gig at Rock City I was 13 I think.
early enough there aren't any bouncers on the doors anyway.
Also, I got thrown out of the Les Savy Fav gig there, was a bit rude to the bouncer then went there the next day and he just made a joke of it so I don't think they really care that much.
dont think ive ever been ID'd in there, ive been several times, before i was 18 as well and its been fine. get there early and youll be alright.
but they have never asked me for ID ever. in fact, the only london venue that really asks for ID is the notting hill arts club, cos they're a mountain of cunts.
