We really want to put Something Serious on again, but our regular place has something else.
CLUB BOMONTI. VODKA. POOL. UKRAINIAN PORNO. MAFIA PLAYING CARDS IN CORNER. 'ACCIDENTAL' GAROTTING.
You may spend all night calling me Vasilli.
Hold a night there, call it "Pier Pressure".
Um, The Windmill?
There's nothing listed on their website, although Tim might have something planned. Also, they might want to go with live bands rather than just DJing. Anyway, I'd say it was worth asking
on the mailout they had "Keith TOTPs & His Minor Indie-Celebrity Backing Band + special guests, heaps of Djs, fun, booze, etc" for the 31st.
Oh and the Victoria line is back to normal from Dec 1st
there a couple of years ago, they were still serving at 7am
i'm playing that!
we do need more bands though...
Not in this thread, though.
to opening / putting on specialist nights in the last year or so at the weekends. Could be worth looking into.
They might see me and be "Weren't you swinging your shirt above your head in here a couple of weeks ago?"
Are there many venues in London where you wouldn't be asked that question?
No questions asked.
that is all
you can go there on nye then.
I guess I better find something else to do on NYE then
I reckon we can make this happen
It's gonna be tough though
The weird-looking place off Chalk Farm Road. Monkey Chews has also been suggested, but I think it might be a bit cramped unless SS took over the whole place
Also, there's only two of Team SS around on NYE, so we'll need some guest DJs; I'm sure we won't want for offers!
That would be amazing!
Monkey chews looks good, I'll investigate
I might pop round on my way home from work and see if there's a manager about
I've walked past there a few times on the way to chez broon, but in never looks open. That and I'm sort of scared of going in.
but okay, I suppose.
Fiddler's Elbow. That's the one.
Mothertrucker playing there on January 2nd, fact fans
Fiddler's Elbow is pretty grim to be honest
is tiny but is cheap to hire from what I remember. That might vary for NYE of course.
St Aloysius Social Club in Euston?
I know Club Fandango have put stuff on there before
but we are next month.
I was sure there'd been other stuff. But yeah, Wave Pictures fo lyf
Just listing venues as they come to my head
I still haven't been, and I still haven't worked out when it is open - it still seems quite random.
Visions Video Bar
The Birdcage (anyone know this place? somewhere in east London, appara)
I'm sorry rob, this isn't helping but it was too easy
is brilliant but I think you have to go in there yourself as there's no info on the venue online at all.
Seems a weird place to hire out though. It's a 'locals' venue
Smalltown America had an afterparty there following the 2006 alldayer
Stupid nails in doors.
(for making me laugh)
but I've not heard of anything going on in there since.
it was nice. still seems to be there as well.
gemma SCL gave me the guy's phone number.
We've all got keys.
It would mean you'd have to set it up as a private party, but basically you should be able to set up a Facebook event and then send a message with the password in to everyone who marks themselves Attending
But I think we could get a groundswell
like pee pee?
or anywhere in Nottingham as all the NYE nights are lame.
I know you wont even consider this, but it gave me the opportunity to complain about the shitty NYE nights in Nottm.
Going to NYE in Brighton.
If I can pull this off, you're welcome to stay over!
Although this will mess up my usual routine of going to a house party where someone plays an acoustic guitar as everyone mongs out on weed and discusses how great Bloc Party are.
I'll bring the drunk girl who spends all night crying!
I'm the couple that has an arguement and then sneaks off for sex.
but the reviews ain't good
they dont loan out on NYE surely? i have been there on NYE and it was great. except the bar staff had a MASSIVE short change scam going on. if you said, "you've short changed me", they just gave it back no questions.
hmm. they did play once in a lifetime tho and i did dance on a table.
it now looks a bit like a wine bar, but a cheap one that's frequented by all the old irish drunks in kentish town. also, it's no longer bright yellow on the outside.
there's some other pub on kentish town road, i can't remember the name but it's NEVER busy. i walked past once and there were a load of people in their 60s in there, two of which (male) were dancing sans shirts. rob'd fit in well there.
i think they MIGHT have a metal night on tho
let's just go there anyway
and I don't see the fuss. Explain please.
hilarious mixture of goths, students and terrifying locals.
I'd be ever so tempted to quit trying to put SS on.
Why didn't I start doing this 2 months ago? Grr
sadly it's Push on NYE this year.
we still haven't been to the new metal nights there Rob. we need to do it soon as the astoria is closing for good next year.
one day i will steal that neon red bull sign.
only one barmaid is vaguely attractive and they are all very unhelpful.
What help do you want from a barmaid beyond exchanging currency for alcohol?
We could be on for the upstairs of 93 Feet East!
If I do it, everyone HAS to come
Seriously though, I might come. YEAH. Then walk home. YEAH.
Thats why I am going to kill you last
so I can enjoy myself while I wait my turn?
so let's make him make this the official party and smash their bar takings record. Tell them to stock up on Sambuca.
Of course. if you need any help with organisation, no matter how boring or unglamorous, let me know.
Rob asked if you could do my Christmas shopping for me. Cheers
Richard, on behalf of Rob.
and coming back for this
My new year resolution is to see more drunk Brooner.
you would need to be less drunk than me, and the chances of this is slim.
Though that's getting ahead of ourselves
I'll send out a war cry big man.
but then the venue bar at 93 doesn't stock it either, only the main room bar.
It's my only real source of vexation with the place. To be fair though, as long as there is enough sambuca, I'm sure I'll struggle through...
the dulwich supporters club.
I'm already looking forward to paying £3.70 for a bottle of lukewarm Grolsche
I can't wait to get some Budweiner down my throat.
Stealthy can't spell a beer. Oh, ha-di-ha!
Did he do an "OMGLULZ"?
It'll all be fine later x
Can you delete some more of meths's posts please?
out the back.
i wont come tho
you shower of bastards
that's probably Mamma Mias fault. there are many others. FUCKWITTO
(Not entirely true)
fingers crossed everyone
This'll be ace if it works out.
