sometimes their brains are not.
remember this when having sex.
for some reason i always go to that toilet when in the luminaire
the other way round most of the time
otherwise its rubbish
having been at Cargo last night, it is mint in terms of acoustics and visibility.
I find it soulless, overpriced and cliquey-scene quite regularly though.
The Lumi is the closest thing we have to a perfect venue in London.
An in-house promotions team that gives a fuck, reasonably priced beverages, friendly, attractive staff and arguably the most consistently interesting line-ups in the capital.
it would be so much better if you could actually see anything if you aren't at the front, maybe a raised stage, or steps towards the back or soemthing. i don't know - but it has shit visibility!
Both the Dublin Castle and the Bull & Gate have easier viewing I think.
They've got that screen at least so you can see some stuff.
go to the Windmill. The Luminaire is miles better by comparison.
but still - it isn't great if you're small (i'm not, but i still struggled to see much on the stage)
i suppose nowhere is PERFECT though is it?
and I'm no beanpole. Besides, I prefer a venue where you feel close to the stage, although maybe unable to see EVERYTHING, to one where the band are several feet above ground level like the Bull and Gate - or worse, the stage at 333.
I prefer a venue that is very, very close to my house.
only been there twice. Its really nice, good sound, above a pub. What more could you want?
as it would then be my favourite venue, probably.
It's good but the location's a bit more irritating for staying there late, which is a shame.
even I like that.
I'll have to stop using it now. :-(
Theo is trying to make it sound more masculine, despite it being beer for people who only like sweets.
witbeer, but Kronenbourg Blanc is mass-produced, metallic tasting bollocks.
You make me sick.
It's a different taste to others. Better than Hoegarden certainly.
I prefer Hoegaarden, actually.
that really is a soulless pint.
Also, they normally serve it in a normal pint glass, which takes away half the fun.
Sam Smith's Wheat Beer is a bit of a daddy, though.
You get a pint of Hoegaarden in one of those MASSIVE chunky glasses that weaklings like me have to drink out of with two hands. You do at decent pubs, anyway. The Good Ship has them.
Haven't tried the Sam Smiths. I'll give it a whirl next time I'm in one.
Sorry. That's really bad.
My brain has actually died.
that I don't care for The Luminaire - it always seems a bit awkward and crappy to me. But I should also say that I don't think I've ever seen anyone be really any good there, which may also colour my view.
I do like 93 Feet East, particularly in the summer and Cargo is good too.
and cargo is cool too, lots of comfy squishy sofa/seats, but !1.60 for a bottle of water?! taking the piss!
I thought we'd got past this.
Both of you shut up.
Non-electronic bands tend to sound fucking terrible there and I don't like the beer selection that much.
u have to, like, walk ALL THE WAY NEXT DOOR :O
I want cider brought to the spot where I'm standing, frankly. All these London venues are ridiculous, and offer nothing like the exquisite service I got while watching Robbie Williams with the Sultan of Brunei.
Worst celebrity sex tape ever.
and then making them hold said drink for you while you fanny about with fag-rolling or somesuch, I don't think you're in a position to accuse others of laziness, Princess.
you LOVE IT!
you can get it in the other bar...?
and would be improved simply by lowering the price of a can of Red Stripe out of the fridge from three pound something to a quid.
I've seen plenty of good-sounding non-electronic bands there, though. Depends on the night.
but the acoustics are really metallic and tend not to serve 'conventional' bands well, in my experience.
fruli is unpleasant.
I threw up there.
WHILE THE BAND WERE PLAYING
I don't think they noticed...
I'm not doing a LOL because I dislike HH, it's funny because I knew she'd thrown up but not where UNTIL NOW. LOL.
I'd split for the Water Rats by that point.
it's a pretty puke-worthy thought.
This is the respect we get for our well-planned and technically proficient demonstration of disco classics.

I dunno. One offhand jokey comment and I'm being murdered. I didn't realise the rules for being a Jo(e) were quite so stringent.
for listening to bands, I find it a bit souless sometimes, it's a bit clean and very serious.
the bar staff are nice!
as the girl who shouted too loudly in her ears once and it hurt. she reminds me whenever i go. :(
to serve miserablie coz he was too drunk, maybe that's when the soulless bit hit me. Who can say no to miserablie?
where? there's only one isn't there, to the left of the stage
is what i meant to put on the end of that sentence.
oh i remember, in between the two tables.
the cloakroom is left when facing the bar!
, not the other meaning.
why do i have to be the boy?
He's using up all his knowledge predicting the geegees.
I realise I've never been into that little nook Wishpig's talking about. I'll have to go in there next time.
I can always see, and it doesn't break my ears.
the sound is great but yes, a bit hard to see sometimes if not right at the front. i just realised recently that it's quite easy for me to get to too, yay.
the spitz is the best venue in london bar none.
i'm not that keen on the lumi although the programming is fantastic. if only it wasn't so far...
Spitz is way too hot, and you can always hear the till ringing from the bar during quiet bands
a lot about the crowd that goes there that you can actually hear the till.
i love the spitz. it's probably one of my most visited music venues in london and i've never been to a bad gig there.
I'm liking your thinking.
fruli is bad.
don't go there enough.
I love Cargo in the summer, watching Beans on Toast and Kit Harpoon outside was ace, it is a bit pricey but they do those nice bottles of fruity cider and a BARBECUE.
I like the windmill, apart from it being in Brixton..
and they had a no-nonsesne "Shut the fuck up when bands are playing" policy, which is right up my street.
