10pm main act
9pm main support
20:00 main act
for a LARGE act on a weeknight, thats grand that is. Killing Joke did that at Rock City.
i'm talking say a regz size band with a 45-1hr long set and a support band playing a half hour.
I'll just get home earlier, ideal
I hardly ever get to see the support - there's not many venues I want to really hang out in for that long...
20 mnute sett
I love early ending gigs.
and what i have the next day
on my way to restaurant/bar/bed before 10.
The most annoying thing is when they have, say, doors at 7pm and the support doesn't come on till 8.30.
barely time to get home from work, get changed, have dinner, shower etc.
the home-dinner-shower thing pre-gig. i like to go straight out from work, all excited and relieved like, then enjoy the show and then go home or out for a bit if the show was worth a big natter.
Some people win
doors - 7
support - 730
main - 830
If I'm in London I like it wrapped up by 10:30 so I don't have to leg it or miss some of the show, just to get the last train.
Got to have a calming pint after a decent gig, especially if still buzzing after.
god support bands are so bad.
If curfew is 22:30 I am a happy, happy bunny.
first support 22:00
second band 22:45
club after until 3
this is, admittedly, fri/sat-centric
or the fact most jobs are 10-6, but Toronto is MAD for stage times. Doors at 9, headliner 11:30-12ish. I kind of prefer it, gives you more time to get stuff done during the day - although I don’t get up at 7am or whatever. Everyone seems to hate it, not sure why they don’t change things really.
even on a Monday or Tuesday. Hard to get home before 1am most of the time. I hate it and everyone I know hates it. It makes me not go to shows when I see there are 2 support bands.
Feels like the guys putting on the shows are only tendering to the student/unemployed demographic
in the bestest venue the bar shuts at 12 and the venue shuts at 1. AND IT'S GREAT stay awake an extra hour with me you squares - we'll sleep when we're dead, capiche?
don't have to choke me tea down before running to the venue either
