The FA Cup was made in Birmingham, and that's a fact!

Let's start speculating wildly about The Place I Love (new sister venue to the Sunny). Has anyone heard any solid facts about it, the opening seems to keep getting put back, which is a shame because it sounds like it could be a brilliant place for slightly bigger indie gigs.

I heard that it was 200 capacity (actual rumour) and it has a log flume ride (made up rumour).
And by me, I mean, Flexo.

I heard that it had a futuristic anti-haircut “electronic doorman� so that when nme-fodder walk into the venue a small device attached to their neck is detonated and their head explodes. You know, like in that classic piece of cinema history starring Arnold “lascivious politician� Swazeneger “The Running Man�

Ahh, gotcha. Phew. I packed The Diskettes CD so that I could play something off it for you.

(That was the quickest I've ever been when going from Bristol to Birmingham)
And by me, I mean, Flexo.

ARF! ARF!

Aww, bless yr heart for taking a record just for little old me.

I may not stick around for too long this evening because i could do with being up tomorrow, and frankly taxis are doing my face in.

But then again I *always* say i'm going to leave places early and never do.

GET IN!

Man, If i had gotten my shit together I could have made flyers for all the records that are just SITTING in my room that I'm supposed to be selling. someof which would be diskettes and rough bunnies records, which people might enquire about upon hearing.

I'm a gimp. GIMP.

Oh GOD I just got home to a message about tonight and I'm so annoyed I'm not in town right now dancing to the music of the kids. The Diskettes! The DISKETTES! This is anger-making. I hope you have fun tonight. I hope it's beautiful. I wish I were with you.

By the way, anyone know anything about Wishin' and Hopin' at the Bulls Head? Am I being really ignorant by not knowing anything about it?

Please don't make me go to Wolverhampton.

Well, that’s the price you have to pay to see CWC. But to be fair I may well not bother. Cos, well it’s a school night. That and the fact that I haven’t been to a venue anywhere near as big as the Wulfrun since… umm, I spose The rescue rooms is maybe up to half the sieze. At a stretch. Well, maybe more like a third. Big places scare me.

Seen some great stuff at the Wulfrun but it's still a gash venue. Actually I may be thinking about the Civic. To be fair I've never quite known the difference. What's the one that did Blast Off?

Post by round bits of plastic » Tue Oct 16, 2007 16:15

Blast Off was t the Civic, The thing at the Wulfrun was called Cheeky Monkey.
I haven’t been to either venue for YEARS and they’ve been done up I think. My friend said she went to see Frank Thingy (um, turner maybe? The one from frnak & walters) at the back bar of the civic. Oddness.

I really can’t remember the last band I saw at either venue.

Saturday Night at the Queens is where everyone should go.

It's on Saturdays and it's at the Queens Arms and it's in the evenings.

There is real ales, free entry, FREE cheese sandwiches and fine music.

Last time I went I saw Little Sister

This Saturday, 20th, KTB is playing.

You know, now I can't even work out if I'm thinking of Blast Off or Cheeky Monkey. The place I'm thinking of looks like a school hall and I saw Low there. I'm very easily confused when it comes to Wolverhampton, which is one of the reasons I don't go there any more. So no, you'll never get me to Wolverhampton. There must surely be enough reasons to stay around Birmingham.

It is pretty ace there. Nice atmosphere as the people who are in there to drink quite like the entertainment too. Great beer also in proper glasses.

if it was Low I would think it was the Wulfrun as it's the smaller of the two. They both look like school halls (um, if your're scholl hall had a bar).

I'm probably not going anyway. I've come up with a fantastic idea for a tv show, i'm going to spend the rest of this week figuring how one goes about selling one's soul.

PS
i always forget which one ktb is.

If my school hall had a bar I'd have gone to school. It only had religious overtones so I went to the Wulfrun. That Low gig was pretty busy you know. What's the tv programme idea? If it's got murders in it then it's not selling your soul. If there's one thing tv needs it's more programmes with murders in.
