but i don't know if it is worth it. i've found a great venue very very near two mainline stations running 20 minutes to and from central london and good bus services. however, there isn't a history of "proper" gigs in the area really.
with any luck it would have in-house equipment so bands could just turn up if they didn't want to bring their own and hopefully on a saturday night.
what i'd like to know is:
A: would bands want to come and play (any payment would be equal share of the door after costs)
B: would people want to come to it. and would they actually turn up.
not in it to make money, just want to get some great bands and maybe start something regular where there is currently nothing and make the bar manager happy by getting folk buying pints and stuff. planning on maybe three bands per night and maybe £3 on the door for punters. also considering filming / recording each gig for podcasts and the like.
