So....3AM Moorings shenanigans?

Recommended Posts

Who's done it? Thoughts?

I worked till then on Friday night, and it got nice and mellow towards the end. Which was perfect for my liking. Still a good lot of dedicated punters in till close though.

Tried my best on Saturday, went along at 8 and ended up leaving at half 12 in a proper fucking state, because pacing myself is not a virtue I possess.

Gonna try again on Friday, might even leave it till even later to head along and begin a session.

I'll be giving it a bash this Friday. The more time I spend in there, the less time I have to blast money away at the Casino. Cunts.

Stayed til 1.15 on Friday, leaving early as I had work on the Saturday

morning.

Lasted til 3 - somehow - on the Saturday after playing a gig there. Reason I'm so shocked I lasted is because I was getting band discount all night.

Is there a specific time that you need to arrive before to be allowed in?
3am. Pretty much. Last orders are at quarter to 3.

Flash may come in and piss all over that claim.

Yeah, the latest you can get served is 0259. Everyone needs to be out by 0315.

We're currently looking at restructuring the events at the weekend to properly utilise the additional hours. Any changes will be phased in slowly.

If anyone has any ideas then feel free to post them here, although I'm not promising that we'll implement them.

Thus far we're thinking about reintroducing some month long band residencies on the Friday, like we used to do 4 years ago. Idea being that a band plays one set each Friday, quite early on in the evening, for a one month period. They wouldn't be expected to play completely different material each time, the core of their set wouldn't need to change. This would be for experienced, established bands with a decent depth of material to draw on. It's a good way of getting Joe Average Punter familiar with their tunes. Then the regular club night would follow on from that. There would be a nominal door charge to cover costs.

On Saturday's we're looking at dropping down to 3 bands, to make way for a club night after the last band finishes it's set. So bands would play at 9pm, 10pm, and 11pm with the last band coming off at midnight.

If my memory serves, stayover did this quite a few years ago now, and it went down a treat! great idea IMHO:up:

I would suggest rotating the bands a bit like the djs. I would find watching the same band four Fridays in a row a bit tedious. I seem to remember wanting to go to the moorings later than usual on Fridays to avoid bands I couldn't stand. Then again I listen to prog and my opinions on bands should thus be taken with a pinch of salt (I figured you'd say that if I didnt.)

I was working Friday, but made it on Saturday. Was actually amazed. Last I checked, it was 1, then all of a sudden, I heard last orders and thought "holy shit, I made it." Dont remember a fucking thing after that, other than waking up in Callum's bed after a he pung a rubber band off my noggin.

Me and Fliss came back there too. You found a light on at Draconians on your way up.

Made it on both Friday and Saturday this week. Yus.
