I wanted to go to the somehow famous 100 Club for some time already, but for some reason I’ve never made it there. Now, finally, I was there. Not strictly for a music event, but for some mix between poetry and music. Anyway, the venue seems really okay, just the toilets are a bit shit.
It wasn’t too crowded on that Sunday evening, so it was really fine. Only the air con made it horribly cold at one point. But perhaps that’s just me, and when there are more people, I’m sure you’re grateful for a powerful air con.
All in all, 100 Club seems to me to be quite a good concert venue.
Dingy? Yes. Cramped. Yes. Fabulous music and the best way to spend a Sunday evening? YES!
There is nothing special about this place. it’s a grotty dive bar and has a really horrid smell. But it’s fantastic. It’s like a dirty little music secret. I saw The Duke Spirit with fellow Qyper Timinator last night and boy did we see a good show.
The 100 Club does no frills music. You come here to see the bands, not to pose and look fabulous like people insist on doing in other venues. And let’s face it, standing six foot away from one of your favourite bands is a great way to spend Sunday evening.
I’m impressed with my first visit to this place. The sound check guy was a bit annoying - guitar solos aren’t really necessary for a sound check now are they? But, he had his moment on stage and he made the most of it. It’s possible his girlfriend might have come along just to see him play. Still, he made us giggle.
I’m going to be spending a lot more time here in 2009. It’s a fantastic place and I’m in the mood to find more new music to make my ears happy.
100 Club is a club up in london which holds many gigs every week. It is easy to get to by tube or bus. The venue itself is quite small, so it’s very good for intimate gigs and many punk/alternative bands play there. The drinks there are reasonably priced and the staff are very helpful and friendly. There is always a nice vibe at gigs when I go with my friends and its easy to get into the mood for a gig and jump about.
Nestled in a basement at 100 Oxford Street (well, where did you think it got its name from) is an unassuming little live music venue, with a couple of bars, and fairly scuzzy loos.
That doesn’t sound a very good review, does it? The 100 club is redeemed however, by its intimacy and the quality of music and acts it attracts.
Admittedly, I’m a folk music fan, and the 100 Club is ideal for people like me. With acts ranging from folk to blues to bluegrass and everything in between, you can’t really go wrong. I’ve seen Fairport Convention and The Dylan Project there. It’s a cosy, intimate venue. You can sit (or stand) right up to the stage, and there is no back stage to speak of, so the band members are drinking in the same bar as you are, and using the same facilities you do.
It should be noted that in one gig I attended, there were some very noisy and talkative folk at the bar, who seemed to forget that some of us paid good money to see Fairport, not to hear about their day at the office.
The bar isn’t bad - there is a good selection of wines, and a decent selection of real ales. Tickets for the gigs I visit are between £17 - £18 - a bit pricey, perhaps, for what may be seen as a fringe band, but with good acoustics, decent bar, and splendid atmosphere, if you like the music on offer, it’s worth every penny.
This place needs to invest in some air conditioning..melting atmosphere and not even high summer yet.
Staff are friendly though.
The stamp on hand for passout (to go out and get some air before you literally pass out) seems not to scrub off but does transfer to the face and other skin.
On its own, the small basement room that is the 100 Club would get 2 stars. It’s like a multipurpose room at a school or hotel, just chairs and tables, a low stage, with pillars blocking the view. The toilets are dingy and cramped. It’s not a good-looking room in any way.
But they get some of the best music here. It’s a legend, really, and many of the old posters on the walls show this. From rock to punk, many of the greats have wedged themselves onto the tiny stage.
I saw an awesome performance from Roy Harper here, as well as good ones from newer acts like Scotland’s Sons & Daughters and Silversun Pickups.
This discreet music venue on Oxford Street is quite an institution and a must-visit for live music geeks. Many historic gigs have taken place here over the decades, and you can almost feel the legacies as you step into the understated main bar. The place itself is quite bare, with a wide stage and sparse furniture. However it is great for intimacy and catching big bands at the start of their ascent. Tickets are often fairly priced too.
