for a number of months.
Bat for Lashes etc. next Saturday = cancelled.
More info soon.
having to manually hump amps upstairs was what 'destroyed' the faculty. imagine if they'd had a service lift.
You're always random.
twas gonna be one of the best bills i've ever put together.
i suggest we move the gig to the basement of hamleys...
have it at the King's basement in Crouch End.
It is proper ACE.
is officially my favourite scarecrow
where am I going to go to get drunk and dance to the Unicorns?
i will miss the unicorns quite a lot :(
we'll get a bottle of Jagermeister and sing to passers by...
Jagermeister in my kitchen. Word.
let's go tonight.
we can sing the unicorns and that greek song.
seriously, what else is there to do on a friday/every night? everything else < tatty's.
or we can turn my flat into Tatty's. I'm sure my flatmates won't mind...
whilst we were eating that AMAZING strawberrycreamthing there would have been tears.
the strawberrycreamthing was like pre-emptive comfort food.
I have no strawberrycreamthing. I am crying TWICE now.
however my story was worse. I bought a chocolate pudding for Han and Claire and had the veggie thing myself (very nice) then I went to get a chocolate pudding and THEY HAD THE LAST ONE!
Worse than that an hour later I saw another chocolate pudding go by and when I asked it transpired the kitchen staff had 'found' another one but that was it. It was the last! :-(
because it's a serious business to get between me and a chocolate-based pudding!
Han says this to Chewie when Chewie is laughing at him.
What a terrible idea. Most refurbishments make places shit too. :-(
This is a pile of arse...
it can't really take 'months' to refurbish one tiny room in reasonably good condition, can it? Anyway, wasn't it refurbished relatively recently?
but it does sound very fucked up. I was looking forward to Pop-Art on Wednesday after Pagan Wanderer Lu. :-(
they build another fire escape, additional to the one with a sign on the door saying 'this fire escape is for the use of staff only'
moving the stairs, increasing capacity, adding a dressing room and more.
i'd hope it would take a long time, otherwise the walls will be made of paper or something.
In fact, why didn't they do it while the club was closed? It seems ludicrous just to drop it on everyone. At least stop bookings at a certain point and then do it then?
with Matty or Olly.
It's the owner. He's been a dick before, it was originally closed because they found guns at one of his other venues.
makes it cosy. and easy to find people. and sets it apart from most other places. [ok, there are other places as small as tattys... but few of them are any good. i wish they were... but they're not.]
just like Fridge is suddenly closed for refurbishment after being raided for drugs.... things like this are planned months in advance.
may move to the about to be reopened Bardens... is bardens as lovely as everyone says? might it be too big for such short notice? will you all come if we take the plunge?
But it's long and thin with sort of segments so it won't feel empty if it's not completely full.
I like Bardens, I'll come it's right next to my house!
I'll come still.
The lineup looked pretty big for tatty's anyway. It was a good'n.
is anyone is interesated in that 'little' PROLEFACT -are these bands any good or scenester shit? (im just saying this to get a reply on this thread?
myspazz profile I think you saw him when he played at On the Rocks??
The other man Findley Brown we saw at the Old Blue Last a couple of weeks ago and the folky dolky type stuff he plays is just looooooovely.
I don't know about Bat for Lashes.
Kid Harpoon and Findlay will both bring quite a lot of people I think.
I have NO excuse NOT to go to this badboy - when is it?
and i like bat for lashes
That's fucking months...
I was envisaging maybe two or three at the most. Not five...
well it was last year - I keep emailing them about doing a night but no 'joy' - the numbers I have are for people no longer involved - boo!
"Basically what's happening is that the landlords want to use the space upstairs for a shop and knock through behind the bar to give a new entrance. The L shape it is now will be squared to make it a rectangle and it'll apparently fit 180 people."
That sounds like it's going to be quite radically different then.
I'm not happy.
I'm genuinely gutted. it was great as it was, and it's never going to be the same once they've finished the 'refurbishment'.
bah, it was easily my favourite place in london for music and drunken-ness and dancing.
RIP tatty's :'(
They just refurbished the Old Bull and Bush pub, our 'local' on the border of Hamstead.
It is now officially quite rubbish and garish. GRRR!
and that bottled beer was horrible but it was the site of a certain bands LAST GIG ever so yes I will be sad also.
Its a 'bugger' to get to if you don't have a good sense of direction.
let's make our own venue.
or just BUY tatty's and stop them from changing it... who has some money?
I will come to Bardens. Any news on what's going to happen to the White Light DJs? I need my Friday entertainment!
it was ok wasn't it? Anyway on Fridays you can always go to......THE GARAGE!
once (and only once) i went there. they played jet followed by kings of leon. i was drunk. i didn't care.
to tattys on saturday for a friend's clubnight. i didn't. and now i'm gutted. :(
still, even extending it, it's not going to be massive... if the members policy and quality of the clubnights stays the same, and if it's still under white heat's management, then hopefully all will not be lost. and a few typically boisterous nights there will scruff it up nicely :) les inc and lightning bolt for relaunch party!
6 months feels like a long time though.
