Well seeing as SE1 is quite famous for its dance music and well....basically chavism, I, as a rocker/metalhead, wonder if there are any other like-minded people in the area.
What venues do you like?
Going to any gigs in the future?
Greenday fans need not apply.
I didn't think there are any of us in the vicinity. I'm not sure there is anywhere in the area. I still nip up the Dublin Castle in Camden from time to time on a Saturday to see live music. I don't really do clubs any more and never found a satisfactory one in London cos they always seemed to be on during the week when I'm working. Used to go to Alien Night Life at the San Moritz on Wardour Street about three years ago (which was better then it sounds, but still ropey), but is now a sub-standard indie-schmindie, and not even proper indie-schmindie, but Starsailor, etc.
Plus I only have one friend who really enjoys that kind of music (cos it's all just a laugh really innit) and so my rock days are dictated by when she is free.
wow, surprised by the responses. nice to see we are not alone, i like to get up to candem in the weekends too, its probably the last place i know to see live rock/metal. i do like Mean Fiddler too, next door to Astoria.
To get an idea of what your into, whats your fav band at the mo? I've been getting into Disturbeds new album and Chimaira too.
You do realise that you're on the verge of starting a major schism of the "Considerably more metal than you" variety don't you?
For myself - in the last few months I've seen: Nightwish, Backyard Babies, Ginger Wildheart, Nine Inch Nails, Hayseed Dixie, The Finn Brothers, Judas Priest, Lordi and Mark Knopfler. And the last album I bought was Foo Fighters - 'In Your Honor'
Not to worry I like a lot of different bands too, i love System of a Down, Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin etc
Just wanted an idea of the whole rock/metal fan base in se1, good to see a few responses. Love Nightwish, you heard the snowman tune?(walking in the air) live? shes amazing.
Don't know if the Prodigy count, probably not but they are cool too
