Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on June 26, 2022, 11:21:01 PMSure it wasn't the Valve Soundsystem (built by Dillinja and Lemon D, the running joke was Lemon was only allowed on the decks because he was a joiner who built the cabs)? They drained the pool, I was at that circa 2006!The Med Bar had the Soul:R Soundsystem IIRC... Saw D-Bridge on that.
Quote from: drummersaredeaf on June 26, 2022, 09:33:51 PMAre we talking the old Brum Academy that was downstairs and later called the Ballroom(?)? One of my fave venues and gutted it was closed.I've got no beef with the Manchester venues listed so far. I've found the Ritz, Apollo, Albert Hall and Gorilla to all be absolutely fine. Maybe all the Gorilla shows I've been have been majorly undersold though.
Quote from: Ferris on June 27, 2022, 12:07:00 AMI'm thinking of the one round the corner from Scruffy Murphys which was always absolutely fine. Had an upstairs room for smaller acts as well which was nice, seen [spunge] play up there more times than I could count.Certainly not a stinker if memory serves, and I've been to far worse since then.
Quote from: drummersaredeaf on June 27, 2022, 12:19:02 AMHyde Park was particularly appalling, though OT cricket ground also delivered a lot of disappointment.
Quote from: Rich Uncle Skeleton on June 26, 2022, 07:34:03 PMAgreed...it was my first regular venue when I started going to gigs as a teenager. Then as soon as you branch out virtually anywhere else in Bristol the shine wears off pretty bloody quick.Nowadays seeing a bands touring but the nearest gig is at the Bristol academy just makes my heart sink.
Quote from: SweetPomPom on June 27, 2022, 07:15:18 AMWorst thing about Hyde Park is the pricing and partitioning of Golden circles, Diamond circles at crazy prices rather than first-come, first-served. A few Bands say no but most choose to take the money, cunts.Only been to OT once, for Bowie and he stopped the rain so no complaints.
Quote from: The Mollusk on June 27, 2022, 09:28:05 AMFAO @drummersaredeaf and @Ferris in case you were still wondering I was on about the new Academy in Birmingham, not the old one which was the location of heaps of incredible life changing gigs for me in my teenage years. Motorhead, The Mars Volta, A Perfect Circle, The Damned, loads more I sorely wish I could remember. Really should have kept all my old stubs!
Quote from: The Mollusk on June 26, 2022, 07:38:56 PMCustard Factory was always my favourite gig venue in Birmingham. Some amazing weird music courtesy of the legendary Capsule plus heaps of drum n bass and dubstep nights in the drained out swimming pool. Dillinja on the Function One sound system, soundtrack of my early 20s.
Quote from: drummersaredeaf on June 27, 2022, 09:49:03 AMDid see Mogwai in The Mill a few years ago, which was a decent one though.
Quote from: The Mollusk on June 27, 2022, 11:08:27 AM^ Yikes, that's eyebrow raising. I'm psyched as hell for Supersonic, I hope they know what they're getting themselves into.
Quote from: dissolute ocelot on June 28, 2022, 11:53:16 AMLikewise, hate it when a band plays SWG3 in Glasgow because it's in the middle of nowhere next to the Clyde Expressway and annoying to get to unless you drive, although as a space most of the rooms are fine.
Quote from: dontpaintyourteeth on June 26, 2022, 09:37:26 AMI'd hate to start some sort of o2 pile-on, but the Academy in Bristol is fairly rubbish as well, I reckon.
Quote from: non capisco on June 26, 2022, 07:00:31 PMMoth Club because I had to say my date of birth to the bouncer when I didn't have photo ID on me and he laughed out loud because it's in the 1970s.
Quote from: king_tubby on June 28, 2022, 02:20:23 PMO2 in Leeds is so bad that I've completely given up going. A cavernous drinking barn, poor sound, awful expensive beer, ridiculous curfews, bad sound.Whoever booked the Magnetic Fields to play there needs keelhauling.
Quote from: sutin on June 30, 2022, 01:46:41 AMI don't remember anything bad about the O2 in Glasgow. I saw The B-52's and DEVO there in the late '00s, seemed alright but in a crappy area. I was on the barrier for both shows though.
