It’s funny but, alot gigs in Manchester finish earlier on a Saturday than on any other night of the week due to most places having club nights from 11. Vaguely remember MONEY at The Ritz being done by 10 on a Saturday.

Don’t think it’s in the same league as any of the 100 Club posts tbh

I’ve had so many properly condescending replies from the Real Music Fan brigade that I just don’t give a fuck tbh

“Ooh you wouldn’t ring up a cinema and ask them what time the twist in the film happens!”

No but I might ask them what time a film is on and be a bit perplexed if they said “We’re open from 10am, come along then and wait.”

if promoters really want to help out support bands they should look at paying them more than £50

I’d been considering starting a thread about this a few months back. I’m in my mid-30s now and still feel like I’m one of the youngest when I go to gigs. Where do ‘the kids’ who like music hang out now? Sitting at home watching the YouTubes probably…

Took my mum and her partner to see Christine & The Queens a few months back. He was worried about being one of the oldest there, but fit in quite comfortably. Reckon it’s a ticket price thing? They do seem to have become exponentially more expensive for mid-sized and big gigs over the last decade (although that doesn’t explain the same demographic changes at sub-£10 gigs of new bands).

Funnily enough I’ve just checked 100 Club’s website gig listings. They don’t seem to bother mentioning who the support band is on most of the listings. Maybe that should be their first port of call?

really hope someone has pointed this out to the absolute weapon in charge of their social media pages

initially assumed people saying this about the 100 Club post were potentially a bit cynical and that it probably just really is a misguided crusade ‘for the music, maaan’

but the more they push the “we tell you what time doors open, just come then!” line the more i’m not sure.

I have, but they only reply to the posts they want

I’ve never really followed the logic of not knowing the stage time leading to me getting there really early. If I don’t know the time, I just take a punt, and if I get it wrong hold it against the band, promoter and venue forever.

Still not forgiven MSTRKRFT for that 12.30am start a few years back.

Our band did a tweet about it and I’ve just been interviewed for newsbeat on radio 1 about it. Tune in to hear my silly voice

worst is when you have to take a guess and they ended up putting the bands on in a different order than they appear on the poster

I imagine the proper music fans would want to know when the stage times were in case they had an appointment for getting a proper haircut.

Slaves should play The 100 Club.

It would be karma if everyone turned up to see the support band and left before Slaves came on.

They’re bloody awful. Had the misfortune to catch them supporting the Foos last year and they were dreadful. No songs at all, just this “YEAH WE’RE MORE PUNK THAN ANYONE? YEAH? YEAH? 'AV IT!” attitude.
