    I go here very often, and I went to anti nowhere league what a gig, you wouldn't think it as i'm in my 20's .. and was in the mosh haha... there was a guy at the front that looked like the bloody rock, the guy was huge head jammin the whole way through and obviously a part of the mosh (I had to try and push the guy), it was rather amusing backwards and forward, sideways sometimes too, I thought the support was good for support, a lot of passion and energy fair play.

    On the glasses part, as you could see it was very very busy, it would be hard to collect glasses, and they're more likely to end up smashing on the floor, I assume this is why they give plastic cups out, as they do in most music venues, I do see your point with the bottles though, but they don't run out (unless sold out) where as pint glasses do, and have to be replaced etc.

    Normally one of the bar staff just collects them when possible, but it's pretty hard to do when it's that busy.

    I owe a lot to this place, met some amazing people that have helped me through dark times, in general the regulars there are great friendly, and there's barely any trouble i'd much rather go here late night than any other options, but it's very niche obviously if you like pop music you won't like it on a normal night unless you're open minded/ or into metal/rock/punk

    Was sweating like a madman when I finally went outside after the gig, it's my own fault although it does get hot** in there, but that's to be expected really, was fine after 20 mins and another drink haha

    it was nice to see the older generation, still having fun there was a small grey haired guy, in his late 40's or 50's i'd say who was by me loving life, and yes he did get knocked down a few times but got back up again..... never going to bring him down.. likewise younger folk keeping it going hopefully into the future.

    So What!!!!!!!!!!

    Went last night for the nostalgia of the emo night. A good 10 years older than the majority of the clientele (“this lot weren’t even born when this song came out!”) but we had a great night, very friendly crowd, staff and security. My hangover on the other hand is not quite so great :(
