Anyone know any good music venues there?
Cox's Yard puts on gigs, but it's more local bands and crap tribute acts.
I'm hoping you don't mean there. I work in Stratford and its purely only money that makes me come to this dirty thumb-smudge of a 'town' - after the Olympics they should just torch the area and concrete it over. Or turn it into a Dalston annexe - COOOOOLLLLLLLLLLL
and a Maryland - which is in Stratford and truly deserves to be left out of the will as it were.
It's a shithole.
And some teenage mums. That is all.
There's the Picturehouse. And a strange Chinese shop in the mall that appears to stretch into several alternate dimensions.
On the other hand, it's a horrible shithole. A bypass should be built over it - pretty the place up.
Stealthy is talking about the Stratford in east London.
it is horrific. The shopping centre is the worst one of its kind anywhere. EVER. It used to have a music shop in it which sold nothing new and played 'sweet like chocolate' on a loop. I got mugged there, pretty much all my mates got mugged there, some twice. The pubs are/were full of degenerates...apart from the railway tavern...and the vast majority of the locals were very rude. There's also a 'travellers site', cunts.
at a venue called The Rex in Stratford, doe sit still exist? I saw Asian Dub Foundation there once.
but you're not too far from Coventry or Birmingham? Probably?
as to whether Winterlong is in London or Warwickshire.
maybe he should look for flood damage?
it must be Warwickshire. Because if it was the London one, wouldn't you just go to all the London venues?
they close the roads into stratford at 9:30pm on a saturday night.
I'd quite like to think that we might never know. It would be kind of beautiful.
