Why, why must Refectory be Leeds' biggest venue?!

Advantages: Attracts relatively big-name bands, convenient location
Disadvantages: Terrible venue, no air-con, poor facilities, ill equipped.

...INTRODUCTION - I've been a fan of live rock music for some years now but living in Leeds have nearly always been forced to travel to Manchester to see bigger name bands simply because of the lack of a venue big enough to attract them. Now Leeds has som ...

The Best Music Venue in Kingston upon Thames

Advantages: Great Music, Atmosphere and Drinks
Disadvantages: None that I can think of....parking maybe?

Definitely the best in Kingston and in the running for the best in the south west of London. It combines rock and roll, indie, soul, blues, jazz, accoustic and much more. Every night holds something different - more than you get from an average pub juk ...

Strange bands, stranger setting.

Advantages: Novelty factor of seeing a gig in a church, aesthetically pleasant main hall, hippy atmosphere in the second hall.
Disadvantages: Very cold and the seats aren't comfortable, and you can't just 'pop' to the loo or bar between songs because you'll get lost.

The Union Chapel is a multi-purpose building in North London, near Highbury and Islington tube station. During the day (and some evenings) it is, amongst other things, a drop-in centre for homeless people, a scout hall, and a functioning church. It is al ...
