    Club starts: 10pm
    DJs till - 2:30am

    The Albert is closing for two weeks for a big refurbishment, so let's see the old tatty place out with a full-on party!

    Expect earfuls of ska, electro, punk, rock'n'roll, big band, Beyonce and rockabilly from our team of obliging DJs.


    EDITOR (urban75)
    An ale-fuelled onslaught of ska, punk, rock'n'roll, big band, rockabilly, Mrs Mills & Liberace in a floor stomping package proving that drinking'n'DJing can be a perilous trade.

    BLUESTREAK (Beyond Fathomability)
    Expect a party pack of big tunes from the returning DJ champ.

    NIPSLA (Falling over studios)
    Packing more pop than a Rice Krispies factory, Nipsla's DJ bag is a veritable jumble sale of joy, overflowing with indie, dance, electro and party tunes.

    BARON BOBBY BAUHAUS (charcoal soul)
    More mysterious than Robert Smith's eyeliner bag, Bobby gets dancefloors rocking with quirky, darkside indie-pop and kohl-smudging breakbeats.

    Videos and photo slideshows of street photography, random amusements and weird shizzle from the internet.

    Me too! I thought for a moment it was going to become a poncey wine bar!

    I will try and make it along as I haven't been to offline in ages.

    I remember after the last refurb they tried doing flowers on the tables and serving food. That lasted :D

    The brewery wanted to turn the Albert into a full-on gastropub, with the first floor staff accommodation taken out and replaced by a kitchen.

    They still serve a fair bit of pub grub in the day though and it's not that bad, tbh.

    Would have been bad. You and I would never have seen each other again in real life :D

    There's always the HootaCanningHob. Or failing that, Mango.

    I've tried to like that place, but the heavy bouncer pat-downs and the monster prices at the bar take the love away. Mango says nothing to me about my life.

    I had a steak in there the other night and it wasn't too bad at all, almost as good as Wetherspoons and cheaper too. :cool:

    They're going to separate the toilet block and let it sail off down Coldharbour Lane.

    There's been some awesome double booking, so me and Nipsla will now be DJing from midnight onwards - there's a punk band on before of which I know nowt.

    If they don't demolish the half-height wall by the bar, I'm going to have "words" with their architect.

    It's already gone - I popped in this morning and the place is already completely gutted.

    I've seen the plans and there's quite a few changes coming up - the pub is going to be darker and more moodily lit for one (which pleases me greatly) and the stage is swapping ends.

    We're getting a new PA system too, although the lovely system originally promised has just been massively downgraded :(

    The stage is swapping ends?! Are they moving the entrance to the men's loo?
    Sounds like a pretty extensive job!
  24. editor

    editor Taffus Maximus

    It's a pretty huge job to undertake on what seems an unfeasibly short timescale of 10 days or so.

    Is it getting hipsterified then?
  26. editor

    editor Taffus Maximus

    Not if I can help it. The music policy won't be changing, and I doubt if the punters will be either.

    Besides, any pub that can survive orangification can survive anything.

    The pub has always had a healthily changing clientèle, but it's the locals that give it character, and I can't see any of them upping sticks any time soon.
