Live music venue rumours?

By Joe Canberran 15 November 2007 25

Word is that the Green Room and the Ubër hard working Gaz, after earlier this year having taken up residence at the UC bar, are looking at returning to Philip. Why? well it seems that the UC bar has been a little lax in giving the support that they indicated they would when the Green Room first moved there. Considering that the gigs the Green Room put on seem to bring in more patrons each week than all other times put together it seems the UC bar may have shot them selves in the foot with this. Likewise the Green Room’s old venue will be salivating at it’s return if it’s true that the only patrons they have had since the Room’s leaving are two old blokes in blue wifebeaters who couldn’t find the Henry Gratten.

Speaking of shooting themselves in the foot; The Venue may find themselves struggling after allegedly losing the services of Australia’s largest touring/booking agency after failing to meet their financial obligations to them.

Comments from those in the know to either confirm/refute these claims welcome.

> he bought it?

Well, he’s leased it. It’s great news for the Greenroom & for live music in Canberra generally. Our No.1 venue is now more able to support the live scene. I can’t wait! Plus it’s back in Phillip, which is closer to home for me. 🙂

I jammed at the Green Room (Phillip) last night. It’s being refurbished, with a new stage and sound equipment, and looking to be shaping up. Will be playing a few low-key gigs in early January to test out the equipment.

he bought it? I knew he wanted to when Waz was selling up but couldn’t get the financial backing. this is probably the best news the canberra music scene has had for a while. Looking forward to what he can finally do with that place.
