  • It's sad but true... there are none. With the exception of The Regency on Albert Street but not been there recently. Pubs that occasionally play host to gigs are The William Webb Ellis (on Saturdays) and Walkabout (Thursdays).
  • the firkin or the regency sometimes both are shite!!!
  • when we get some i'll let you know
  • There would be a lot more happenning in this field if the locals could be bothered to support events.most of them are either couch potatoes or they think that a live band is a bunch of kareoke singers.The best events are the ones which bring in people from out of town.
  • Pretty much 'nil. At the moment, to be fair. Rugby comes and goes even with it's smallscale scene. Usually a few bands of merry pranksters get bored and try and have a run....we slow down after p*SS-InGG in the wind...AGAIN!
  • None, the residents normally bugger off to the NEC for larger groups. The pubs have shit local bands.
  • Regency Club, Albert Street
  • Try Quigley's on Albert Street: excellent Irish bands.
  • Benn Hall, occasional good gigs.
