Bethnal Green. Any good as a venue? I'm going there tomorrow and was wondering like.
none can go anywhere where there cant be infront of the stage, which is good for bands
standing in front of the stage so this is good for the bands (no potential audiences hiding out somewhere).
but because you hate me you ignored it. :(
like at the Bull & Gate / Water Rats.
Thing is: no one gives a shit about your band if they're not your mates, unless it's one of those monster bills put together by someone who really knows.
So fuck it.
do I have to explain EVERYTHING?
I liked my response, though.
well he's not in the living room anyway
Suffers from having only one room where you see the band and attempt to find space to drink with friends. They have a habit of putting any old rubbish on for the 'Don't Forget Yer Bassamp' night. The sound tends to be bad. Despite all that I kind of like it.
I'm just saying that night seems to have no 'quality control' to it compared to even a Dublin Castle/Hope & Anchor night, where you at least feel that there's a vague attempt at similarity going on.
have you ever been to the dublin castle?
It's often bad at Bugbear nights but they tend to try to have four 'rock' bands together or whathaveyou.
The Pleasure Unit night puts on five bands, which means starting really early and they'll put on weird solo acts with bands that clearly are going to pull in a "Two pints of Fosters and a chick with big tits please, guv" crowd. Dunno, it always seems excessively weird in terms of the choices to me.
can be so varyingly different
and agree with me!
going back to work anyway
It's either there with friends or a solo trip to the Windmill so you've all now convinced me to decide tomorrow.
It was fucking terrible
in the middle of nowhere, expensive drinks, and gets REALLY hot if it's crowded.
How did you come by that peculiar assumption? It's more connected than the Luminaire in terms of late transport and buses...
from where i live!!!!!!!
which isn't far for you, surely?
It's five minutes from my house/centre of the universe
do you live with me?
to irritate you and theo.
