what is it? is it good? details please. they're website is super super shitty
something to do with the northern quarter in 10 years?
machester confidential tells me more than their site.
dunno if it will be a good place for gigs or wut
It's massive, and not completely watertight. Think it's mainly been used for promo/launch nights, and for art exhibitions. It's pretty good and they've got a decent PA but the bar is quite small. The guy who runs it seems decent. too.
That festival I'm helping put on is using it.
or is it the floor?
There's 2 'spaces'. One had a slightly raised stage in the corner and I'd imagine the larger space has something that can be used.
Are you playing there/putting something on? Wait, aren't your band playing the festival?
that is why i am asking. we didn't want to play gullivers or the castle or kraak. ideally we would play somewhere without a stage. cord basement would have been perfect if it was being used but it isn't. so there you go. by the way, i've demanded we get a snickers each (on top of some beer and stuff) for playing. that's a genuine demand.
We got ourselves a negotiator here
I reckon the larger space is big enough to do whatever the fuck you wanted in there.
it's on the spreadsheet!!
It seems pretty great. I don't recall a raised stage kind of area other than the DJ booth in the corner but I wasn't really looking for one. I reckon it'll be pretty good for a gig though
i'm out of town. i feel a bit bad about it but i'm at a wedding so it's a good excuse at least
I'm going after work as it's my replacement for the Pixies disco now it's gone :(
Also, S&G = getting knocked down.
my friend said it was her friend doing it ! this might be intriguing. only been Star and Garter once for a gig, I'm gonna try get down tomorrow if I can drag someone along!
oh noes :(
