April 2019 tour pre-gig meet-ups anyone?

Postby MissCP » Wed Mar 20, 2019 6:34 pm

Hey hey there fellow Nationers, I'm starting the thread so folks can post where everyone is meeting up before the various gigs that are coming up.

So where's everyone meeting?

I'm going to London, Manchester, Glasgow, Bristol and Brum.

Last time I saw PWEI play Shepherd's Bush everyone met up at the bar next door

I have no idea about places to meet up near the venues in Manchester or Glasgow or Bristol.

There's loads of places near the Institute in Brum.

Suggestions? Plans?

Sounds good. I’m doing the full lot apart from the second night in Brum, and Chester.

Sindercombe Social is now the place on the corner by Shepherds Bush Empire, which usually works well. Not sure about other cities.

Sounds good to me! Right next door, lots of room. I'll be a blithering mess, fresh off the plane form the US, but I'll be there haha!

Hello! Yes, I'm coming over from Hong Kong for the Brum gigs and will be keen to hang out before/after the shows!

in Brum there is the rock bar Subside close by, a 4 minute walk from the venue, and in the other direction 4 minutes away is the traditional pub The Old Crown (16th century building supposedly).

There's loads of paces in the area!
The Gay Quarter is a 10 minute walk away and always a fun time to hang out in and have a few drinks
The high street is right there with a huge variety of palces.
Hennessy's Irish bar is right there...the Wagon & Horses that GBOA played at is right there...

Tickets say doors at 19:00 - when would bands usually start? (I see a ton of show in Canada and know our general timing - unsure if stuff is the same)...

Do promoters usually post set times on Twitter or FB or anything before a show (that's become common over here, and makes it SO much easier to time a gig).

Thanks!

Most of them do, but Mute Elephant has said that they were going to stop posting set times because they wanted attendees to show up for opening bands too, rather than time gig arrivals to coincide with just headliners.
BUT, for a gig like this, when everyone is a known act, I imagine they will post set times so people know when to show up before the first artist goes on stage.
