Cue Bar Fitzroy

Cumbersome 6 Jul 2004 13:17

As I'm sure most of you know, The Cue Bar is located @ 1st Flr of 277 Brunswick St. (Just down a few doors from 7-11 towards town)... I have been doing the bookings for exactly a year and a half now and after a lot of work... the place is really buffed... the biggest problem had been having the mixing desk beside the stage instead of the back of the room... finally, it has been moved... like my record shop, i've been putting full focus on promoting and supporting independent bands. For this venue our focus is on indie/rock/pop/hip-hop or acoustic genres... the best thing about The Cue is that it's licensed to serve till 3am everyday, an old con was that the music being fed through the stereo was the same that came from the pool-hall area (dodgy pop music) so I've finally managed to get the bar area an isolated stereo so now it's a completely self contained bar with good tunes till 3am daily and the beer prices have dropped too.... so thanks for everyone who has been sending in demos... keep it up! If you haven't heard from me, give me a call. I've been swamped and distracted and need to catch up and get ahead with bookings so any bands who fall into the aforementioned catagories, please get in touch with me... all the details are here: http://www.cumbersome.net

rock on!

Good on you Aaron! I've been on numerous occasions with the mob, and played acoustic a month ago. It's definately picking up, and having the pool hall next door is pretty handy if you want to chat and kick back for a bit.</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>

This place gave my band some of it's first gigs. Well worth the prick of a load in. Good sound. Intimate size but can fit a lot if you need to. can well reccomend gigging 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 think this is a great venue for new bands. It has a good local crowd too. Its a shame bands cant play until 10.30pm as by the time the second act plays the bulk of the crowd tends to dwindle. But the place rocks when the first band is in full swing.</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>

All it takes is for the bands to work together and be on time. This is so simple yet so often neglected. in some venues it doesn't matter so much. You can play all night at Pony and someone will be there. We've made a point of collaborating with bands that have their shit together and therefore have had no problems at The Cue. Ge on on time and GET OFF on time.
My two cents....</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>

Timing wasn't the problem. The crowds tend to dwindle at around 11.30pm just when the second band gets on.</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>
