For some insane reason, Beck played there for free right after Odelay. It was a madhouse. Surprised no one died.



Yeah, it was a dive, but there were bands I wanted to see booked there--just never got to see any of them.

Your last paragraph reminded me of an amusing anecdote. Years ago I went to Columbus for the weekend. One of my relatives and her boyfriend mistakenly thought I was going to Bernie's to see Them Wranch, so they went there thinking we'd meet up. It was so hot, crowded and chatoic they were afraid they would die, especially if a fire broke out. So as soon as they figured out I wasn't coming, they bolted. If it was that way for Them Wranch, I can't imagine what it was like for Beck.

impossible for me to name them all. so many + my memory is fucked. when i think of it now, my fav. club/venue of all time would be prehaps Whelans in Dublin, not because of its acoustics, but because of so many acts I have seen there and so much of a good time there.

Ya, exactly. I remember being intrigued that it was a multi-floor duo venue place, in what did not seem to be that big of a building (based on images I was checking out). Thinking on it more now, I am really regretting not hitting it up while I was down there. Always nice to see shows in places with a nice history to them too...

Two more added to my initial post:

Ludlow Garage, Cincinnati, Ohio
Black Plastic Records, Cincinnati, Ohio

As of 4/1/2018, Live At The Ludlow Garage has new ownership which dropped "Live At" from the name. Although it's in the same location, the ticket vendor has changed, and there likely will be other changes as well. Therefore, I'm listing it as a new venue because it essentially is.

As for Black Plastic Records, this past Tuesday they hosted a free in store (ended up on the sidewalk outside the store due to nice weather) gig by K Records head honcho Calvin Johnson, doing his Selector Dub Narcotic hip hop thing. I'm not a fan of the genre but Calvin was funny and entertaining. He seemed to be making fan of rap's violence and macho posturing. My favorite part was a monologue where he called professional football "the biggest bunch of bullshit" for how they treated Colin Kaepernick. Entertaining gig but I'd like to see Calvin do some non-rap music next time.

One more addition to my list in my initial post.

Memorial Hall, Cincinnati, Ohio


Saw a show there late last year. It's a great old theater that had some restoration work done a couple of years ago.

I won't be adding any new venues to this list in the foreseeable future due to COVID-19. If anyone has some extra time due to saying home more during this pandemic, feel free to add your list to this thread, or add to your list if you already posted one.

Additions to my 2016 list :

Netherlands:
Melkweg, Amsterdam
Effenaar, Eindhoven
Arminius, Rotterdam
Rotown, Rotterdam
Schouwburg, Rotterdam

Belgium:
Wilde Westen, Kortrijk

France:
File 7, Magny-le-Hongre (a few minutes from EuroDisney)
Le Petit Bain, Paris (I hated the people there)
Le Chabada, Angers (some of the nicest people in this city, don't get mislead by the spelling)
Le Quai, Angers
Le Fuzz'Yon, La Roche-sur-Yon
Le 106, Rouen
Le Temps Machine, Joué-les-Tours
La Citrouille, Saint-Brieuc (has changed its name recently)
La Nouvelle Vague, Saint-Malo
Le Gentieg, Janzé
L'Antipode, Rennes
La Criée, Rennes
L'Etage, Rennes
Institut Franco-Américain, Rennes
Le Jardin Moderne, Rennes
Le Liberté, Rennes
Le MeM, Rennes
L'Ubu, Rennes
Vieux Saint-Etienne, Rennes (a small abandonned church turned into a venue)

Le Mondo Bizarro, Rennes
Quite an institution there, a pub turned into a concert place, earning more from shows (a couple every week; Lydia Lunch played there, as did Minami Deutsch), than from customers as it's located far from the nice bits of town
The COVID forced the owner to sell the place. A couple of weeks ago. The place will disappear and by replaced by a block of flats.
That was so lively, it had more soul than the other venues I've gone to in the city.

Le Ferrailleur, Nantes
On the verge of collapsing for the same reason, a nice place too, lots of shows every month

Le Lieu Unique, Nantes
La Sirène, La Rochelle
