And how close it is to a train station?

They are on at 9. I reckon they have absolute maximum 35 minutes in them. I am going to go for 24 of music and 6 of Turner talking bollocks. And I reckon they will really be on at 10. But either way, definitely done by 11.

It's very close to Mornington Crescent tube station, and not as close but not very far away from Camden Town. Buses outside go right into the centre of town.

I am debating whether or not to go to this. I hate queuing for gigs and usually turn up about 5 minutes before the band comes on. I don't anticipate that working with this gig somehow.

Right so what time do we think is a good time to turn up to get into the wheelbarrow gig tonight? There is a capacity of 180 people :-/

Newmy - You sound like such a scenester. Something to avoid, going forward ;)

Tarpster / Christina - I'd imagine it'll be one in / one out once capacity is reached. That's the way they normally run gigs. I'd suggest arriving by 7ish if past experience is anything to go by

Christina - Bog standard pub? Well I never...

What Pete said. They let people in until it is full, then it is one out one in. No wristbands. So you can't show up, then fuck off again. You're committed to staying from the point you arrive I believe (unless you go for a cigarette).

Last time Turner played solo there, it was full by 7:30 if not a bit earlier. But the question is - will as many people want to see The Horde?

Pete - If it makes me a scenester, so be it - queuing and waiting around are just such a ballash.

Just get there for doors, you'll be in immediately, find a table, sit down, drink beer and watch bands. It's not like you're going to be stood in a field in Helmand.

I can't go due to it being too difficult with kids, it's just quite far from me. If I was younger and had no responsibilities I would be one of the first in the door..
I'll catch them another time :)
