I wasn’t expecting the pub to be a pub/music venue sat on the water-front. It felt like something straight out of a movie, with city lights and cranes and all that jazz in the distance across the water. My only real regret was not knowing in advance that the other half of the venue had put on a metal night, with white face paint and spikes galore. I could of brought my own. I don’t get to wear them very often.
We set up into a tiny bit of floor-space due to the sheer level of equipment in the room, and played one of our usual sets to a very, very lively crowd. Monitors weren’t required because in this side of the venue, the P.A was surround sound around the building, which was definitely a new experience to perform without any real speakers on the stage.
Even more exciting, Mic and I found the back room was full of classic games and entertainment. We tossed in a pound coin and spent a good chunk of our evening earning a high score on this little gem.
Proudly, I set the new top score as PJR. Boosh! – Phil.
