pretty but not comfortable

Advantages: Looks nice, the bars are well situated on the ground floor and you'll never get too hot.
Disadvantages: Uncomfortable seats on the top floor, always cold, and the sound isn't brilliant.

One of the bad points about gigs is that you never get a choice in where your favourite band is playing. They choose the venue, you have to like it or lump it. Speaking as someone who has probably now been in every London venue, the Shepherd's Bush Empire ...

Great venue for those with limited mobility

Advantages: brilliant view of stage, friendly, helpful staff
Disadvantages: sound could be better

**Originally posted on Dooyoo under the alias cornixregina** I travelled down from Scotland for the HIM gig on 25/09/05 in this venue and as a wheelchair user I wasn't really expecting much as most of the venues I had been to up until then the wheelcha ...

World Domination begins in a bar

Advantages: If you like your rock hard, Slaughter House give you just that
Disadvantages: The equipment let them down on the night but the crowd were too busy flinging themselves at each other to notice

Sunday, April 29 2001. Not the sort of night you would expect people to be up for a hard rock gig what with getting ready for school and work the next day. Not when Slaughter House are playing... A staggering 90 people crammed into the Extra Time B ...

Welcome to the music club.

Advantages: -
Disadvantages: -

...Its difficult to know whether to describe Riffs Bar as a pub that provides great music, or a venue with all the qualities of an English pub. The Bar, formally the Butchers Arms, sits on the side of the road in the village of Greatfield and with its white ...

One of the smallest but best gig venues in the UK

Advantages: Amazing location, superb bands/artists who play for longer/talk to the audience for longer
Disadvantages: No public transport, limited parking on site, no food or drink (but bring your own)

...those absolutely amazing but almost "word of mouth" gig venues you hear about I have to nail my colours to the mast before going any further - I'm not a fan of huge stadium or auditorium venues when it comes to gigs and concerts - I feel the ...
