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?

> the green room was in phillip, easy walk from work for me. gone now. pendos was a pool hall in weston. gone now too.

I’d love to open the Pendos room as a cafe/bar/live music place (think Tilleys except with good food & service & welcoming to all people). It’d be perfect, once refurbished. The whole centre at Weston is getting a facelift too, which would also help.

I played for a 5th Div team (won’t say which – people I know read this) but am not happy, not challenged, not having fun. I have played 3rd Div previously so if you know anybody with a space to fill, tell ’em about the Duke.

Duke, our team fits the bill (3rd div Southern Cross Pirates), but unfortunately we’re full up for next season at the moment. :/ I’ll let you know if anything changes.

Who did you play for last season?

Peterh/Duke, are you guys ACTEBA players?

nope. played years ago with a team as a rope in – they lost a player, but never really have the time these days.

Duke 10:37 am 31 Oct 08

Yup, and looking for a 3rd or 4th division team to play in this season, preferably a south side one.

oh no, Pendos is closing !?

just spoke to rob – no-one goes there = closing down.

BTW, it is his birthday today, if you want a chance to see him, tonight would be a good chance…

don’t know the final close date, but it sounds soon.

And I suspect The Venue is next. Two years ago (pre-Venue) you couldn’t get a table in that place on a Wednesday night (comp night) but last Wednesday it was deserted except for two teams and some bored bar staff.

And yet that pool pub in Braddon is always busy. Not sure why this is. Pendos will be missed, at least by people in the 8-ball comp.

maybe, if we knew earlier that rob was under financial burden, we could have organised some other friendly comps.

snooker for me, used to win beers at the labor club on a regular basis…

Aha, let me explain the verb ‘to heckle’, Granny. It can be done in a nasty way (typically to comedians) or it can be good-naturedly and can actually be a boon to the performer.

As an MC, I LOOOOOVE hecklers (within reason). They give you material and a board to spring off. An MC’s worst enemy is silence, no our TWO worst enemies are silence and crickets, our THREE worst enemies are surprise, fear and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.

Sorry, I went all Monty Python there. Good morning peterh if you’re lurking. (Like you lurk!!)

So I was just throwing in the odd observation and request between the few songs I was therefore, but it was all good and there was a lot of love in the room. (Mrs Thumper was there so there wasn’t that sort of love…)

I was just leaving.

oh I lurk.

I love to lurk.

just knocked a bit by the closure of pendos.

will have to make an effort to go down there tonight – wish rob a happy birthday.
