'no, they've done it all up now. It's not like it was.'
I know. It's still shit.
Got a wife got a family
Earn my livin' with my hand
I'm a roller in a steel mill
In downtown Birmingham
My daddy was a barber
And a most unsightly man
He was born in Tuscaloosa
But he died right here in Birmingham
The greatest city in Alabam'
You can travel 'cross this entire land
But there's no place like Birmingham
got a wife named Mary
But she's called Marie
We live in a three room house
With a pepper tree
And I work all day in the factory
That's alright with me
Got a big black dog
And his name is Dan

europeancakeghost also gets POINTS for saying nice things *eee*
that harbours a 1950s British made rocket inside a giant bubble and there's a planetarium too. I love that place <3
Galleries, warehouses, transient retail outlets, BASS, RAVES IN EMPTIED OUT POOLS, living wooden giants, it's basically a brightly coloured former ind. est.
That's the one thing that's impressed me about Brum. Much rather spend a day out in Manchester or Nottingham though (or London, obviously...)
Considering how much bigger than Nottingham it is, it seems to have roughly the same number and kinds of shops/venues/events, but just a lot further apart. And Nottingham seems to have more interesting nights out, anyway, as far as I've found.
Here are tonight's:
