Small and Friendly

Advantages: Great atmosphere
Disadvantages: Not much in the way of food refreshment

...i recently went to see Gabrielle at the Hammersmith Apollo and I was pleasantly surprised. It is a bit of a long journey on the tube from Liverpool Street but once you get to Hammersmith station the Apollo is clearly signposted and only five minutes aw ...

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 ...

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 ...
