When I went: October 2003
Shows seen there: Elbow (Cast of Thousands)
Size: Fairly small
Typical price: Fairly cheap (as you’d expect for a student venue) – tickets used to be around £30
Special points: Ability to sit or stand wherever
Where to eat beforehand: Miller and Carter
I remember this venue as being accessible, low-key and cheap, so great for students, if you’re on a budget, or if you just want a less formal or crowded gig experience.
