DOES THE THEKLA STILL HAVE GIGS ON IT IN BRISTOL?: We ask only in passing, while mentioning that !!! are going to be playing a gig on a boat in New York later today - in roughly a couple of hours, in fact: they'll be on board the Paddlewheel Queen at 8PM, local time, for what's being billed as probably the last chance to see them in a small venue. If we weren't on the wrong side of the Atlantic, we'd go.

yes they most definitely do. the liars made it a stopping point on their last two tours. below the water level and bathed in nothing but an incredibly evil red light. obviously being out at sea means the noise restriction laws apply slightly differently.

I'm now having images of that episode of the Simpsons where they have the monkey fights out at sea.

I'm glad the Thekla is still going; I've always quite wanted to go and see a gig on the water. I was once threatened with being trapped on one of the Mersey ferries with a bunch of third string scouse acts, but that never quite happened in the end; and there's a floating disco in Newcastle but I don't think they do gigs.

Any more?
