Jamontoast 27 May 2003 15:21

Hey, I was just wondering, what do people think of the barleycorn? Do you think it's a good venue?</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Avoid at all costs. Last time I played there with a band I considered giving up playing altogether. If you have any self respect there are many other venues to play at. Just get out there and go for it.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Cheers

Looie 29 May 2003 17:23

Steady,there is only one reason for determining whether a venue is good for live bands - ACOUSTICS!!The Barleycorn has shit acoustics.When we played there the sound was bouncing from one brick wall to the other and our engineer(who knows his shit)said he would never mix a band in that place again.It could be O.K if you are an acoustic duo,but if your band likes to turn it up then avoid the shithole.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Even though it's not the perfect room, at least they provide original bands an opportunity to gig. The venue is great for bands that have just begun performing live in Melbourne.

The more venues out there providing original bands with an opportunity to perform the better.

Calling the place a ‘shithole’ isn’t going to do the venue any good. Original bands need as many opportunities as possible.

The Barleycorn is not a shithole. Ok you would prob get a better sound playing in a Milo Tin, however they do give young bands a go. And has anyone tasted the food there...senbloodysational!!!!</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>


Looie 12 Jun 2003 18:16

All I'm saying is if you are serious about your music and you want to play good venues with P.A's that do your band justice, DONT PLAY THERE!The food might be great but I dont want to sit there having a meal and hear some band dying a quick death in the background.If you are playing there soon and you dont beleive me, videptape the peformance and have a listen back to it.
You won't play there twice.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

I've played quite a few times at the Barleycorn, and yes the sound isn't the best, but give the Barleycorn a break! They are supporting original bands, something not all pubs are willing to do. I've also found the organisers a pleasure to deal with and they've always delivered the gigs promised! Keep up the good work Barleycorn!</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

We Played the Barleycorn a couple of months ago and are due there again on the 9th August. According the the crowd (which, if substantial, helps break up the bouncy sound) we had a huge, tight sound. The Seventh Floor sounded really good there too. There are plenty of venues out there with worse sounds.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

STAY AWAY. I have played there and never would again. And I have seen some bands treated REAL bad there, not mine, but others. And i have seen some real crap bands there too. I would recommend not playing there. Maybe an acoustic thing would work there.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

I played there once and stole a bar stool. It broke 2 weeks later. A good venue is one that gives you a rider and some money. Why would I steal a barstool?
