Face Bar is only ten minutes away from my flat, maybe less. It's a total shithole, and Face Bar isn't much better. I will probably be flying to San Francisco that weekend so couldn't go even if I wanted to (which I don't).

What's wrong with the Face Bar? I've never been.

Never come across this festival before, might do it, previous line ups look alright and I could drive home each night (if I could find parking) for once :D

Yeah I've never heard of it either. Was tempted because it's only a short train ride.

There's a 24 hour multi-storey car park nearby so you should be fine.

Face Bar is a dingy, windowless, poorly lit dive bar and the toilets are in poor condition. It's a depressing place to visit and tries to have club nights which are poorly attended with most people in the smoking area. I've been there for a few local gigs and they've been quite good - Morass of Molasses (who played Sophie stage at BOA 2017) play there frequently (or used to). Drinks are super cheap too with bottles of Carlsberg for £1.80 (but used to be £1.50) but that won't be relevant if you're driving.

Decided to go for it, £25 for what looks like what could be a decent line up that's within driving distance is worth the punt.

I'll keep an eye on it and maybe go for a day.

Looking decent, liking most of the bands announced so far.

For me, nothing much. I've seen plenty of gigs there, in all three rooms and it's largely been fine.

You laugh at me because I'm different. I pity you, you're all the same...

Way more than enough, considering the price and ease of getting there even if they filled the rest out with chaff I'd still have more than enough.

Yourself?

Probably not because I still gotta fork out for train so not much cheaper than going to London. Also as you know I've recently seen Gama bomb and divine chaos.
