    OK so it wasn't a very informative post but is worth going if you're into a night of random accoustic performances ...or indeed if you are a random accoustic performer. Has a proper stage once graced by the likes of the Stones and Pink Floyd. And gold lame curtains..!!

    Most did two maybe three songs so if they were bad, and there was only one who could have given our cat a run for its money, it didn't matter cause change soon come.

    A suitabley surreal venue for a U75 night out?

    I hav had some good nights there, notably seeing June Brides on my birthday earlier this year. Not sure about the Pink Floyd playing there myth, I have trawled through Floyd obsessed sites with lists of all their gigs and found no mention of it, even under its former name the Newlands Tavern.

    Ah it was called the Newlands Tavern.. Thanks for that bit of info. I may well be wrong about the Stones & Floyd cause I'm just repeating what I heard (soz folks), but a quick trawl for Newlands Tavern has thrown up the likes of Elvis Costello, Ian Dury and Eddie & the Hotrods then I got bored of looking.. :oops:

    I go there/play there quite a lot, but have never had much luck getting urbanites there because it's not easy to get to by public transport.

    Hello Ruby.. *waves* No doubt we'll see you down there then. It's not that much of a big deal to get to. On the route of the 343 or 484.

    There's a Mad Pride all-dayer there today. Don't think I'll make it there from North London but locals might enjoy it.

    The accoustic night is called Easycome, every Weds.. £3 tax on the door, less for concessions.

    Hiya William *waves wildly*

    I'm not around this Weds. How about the following week, 21st Oct?

    When you playing next Ruby?

    RubyToogood can't remember what goes here

    Well my musical other half is away that week, so I won't get them to book us properly, but I can always rock up with an instrument and do a couple of numbers. They usually let me on stage :eek:. I was half thinking I might go that week anyway.

    It's not a folk night really - it's a sort of posh open mike night, a combination of booked acts and random people who turn up, but the quality is generally relatively high.

    Bearbot, if you live in Bethnal Green and want a folk night, Islington folk club (which is really in Clerkenwell, not Islington) is probably a bit nearer for you. That's hardcore folk though. Other than that there are various nights in Camden and stuff.

    i'd like to come on wed and see you play on the 25th but ill hold off on confirming anything til closer to the time.. seems to be a nice atmosphere/scene down there...wonder if all this was running a few years ago when i lived in honor oak?

    If you didn't spot the first map, then I have doubts as to whether you'll find the pub :D

    Folks, you have no excuse. It's now twice as easy to find.

    Come down and make merry. Wednesday 25th Oct :cool:
