Promotions team are still going:
there's still live music pretty much every night.
as part of a bill with 3 other bands. I think it was with an Opposition T night(don't quote me on that).
I like the B&G - it has a decent stage, and the people there apparently treat you like a human being (well Mr Opposition does) and the sound ain't that bad.
IMHO The Bull and Gate kicks places like the Hope and Anchor and the Dublin Castle into a tin bucket.
No-one was there (it was on a sunday night and was some kind of showcase for bands from some town I'd never heard of and we were bizarrely asked to play at what may have been the last minute. Which wasn't brilliant like I'm not certain but I think someone else (from aforementioned town) had booked it out so I can't really comment on their promotions team or owt.Soundwise and barwise (whilst both might change a bit with an actual crowd) it seemed fine/good to me. And it's a decent sized room if anyone actually goes.
the space is actually quite good, however don't expect much or any passing trade... people just don't pop in there to check out bands
