The end for The Green Room (Again)

By justbands - 25 September 2008 33

Just Bands is reporting the very sad news that The Green Room will close its doors for the last time at the end of October.

Issues with their landlords/owners of O’Sheas are listed as the reason for the closure.

[ED – AGAIN?]

What’s Your opinion?

Overheard 1:44 am 26 Sep 08

Any live venue disappearing is cause for pause and mourning. Weeks like this (Filthy’s on Tuesday, the church at St Benedict’s as a surprising live venue/recording studio, the Front tonight — er, last night — and who knows where tonight — maybe to the Soul) just show how important it is to have the grungy little venue with eclectic crowds and someone doing MC stuff and passing the collection plate around and handing out raffle tickets that double as drink vouchers for the talent and damn ######## fine music.

And different venues.

Two nights ago, The Feldons (feat. Thumper) blasted our ear drums off with a rocking version of ‘Down On Love’. Last night (at my request) they did a more mellow yet electric version of same (though I did quite publicly set them homework to come back with a swing version — Mark the guitarist just needs to get a bit more Lounge Lizard sleaze going first).

Bob love live music in this town of villages. Switch off the plasma, my friends, and dive in.

No, not Pendos too. Where the hell will you go when the Irish/Weston Club/Labour Club kicks you out for being too pissed?

So Phillip is heading down the Belconnen path to wowserism.

I blame Kevin Rudd for his anti binge drinking stance.

Seriously though, not a good thing..

Belco still has a few places, but not as many as the old days. I blame drink driving laws (but I’m not suggesting we remove them).

Slightly off topic, but not really, Pendos/Coolabah Pool room in Weston closes its doors this week too. Another Woden Valley dive bites the dust……Statesman Hotel holds on by a thread.

i’m sure he could move the The Venue !

Thumper – I believe it is being turned into a car shop, nothing to do with wowserism!

Its been a long and distinguished history for the Texas Tavern/Henry Grattan/O’Sheas and upstairs – Phillip Amusements, Kitty O’Sheas and the GreenRoom…

Did I miss any other names?

peterh 12:44 pm 25 Sep 08

crap.

now I will have to go to (gasp!) the kambah tavern or the burns club.

oh, well, at least the stagger home will be shorter.

O’Sheas is shutting down as well – I was told it was being redeveloped into something that is not a pub.

The last pub in the Phillip industrial area is gone. It will be a sad day for the tradies who want a beer after work…

Zapruda 11:31 am 25 Sep 08

oh, another one bites the dust……….

jakez 11:30 am 25 Sep 08

Bloody hell.

justbands 11:25 am 25 Sep 08

Yes…again. Sounds serious this time around.
