    I just wondered if folks here knew of any good live music pubs & clubs in the surrounding area? Do you drive to Lichfield, or Stone or Cannock to watch groups?

    The Old Brown Jug in Newcastle is one of my favourites. But there must be more around?

    Granvilles in Stone has alot of live music and bands playing but sometimes you have to pay to get in and the drinks are ridiculously expensive and they dont have cider on tap!!!!
    I dont think it has a very good atmosphere its more for rich middle aged people who want to escape the kids rather than rockers wanting to hear good music......

    The swan in stone has regular live bands and sales a vast range of real ales and best of all CRL they have a fridge full of white plastic gallon containers of some of the most lethal cider going, The type of stuff you strain with your teeth .

    i do like the OBJ, but the sugarmill up hanley is the best venue of it's size in the country in my opinion

    there's also the various council owned venues in wolverhampton

    and further afield is the o2 academy in birmingham. i believe there's a band playing there on May 5th you should all go watch...

    My stepson is playing there on 26 May! Flossietoo will be making a rare visit to the big city to cheer approvingly.
