Well… This week the Front Bar / Cafe in Lyneham is changing hands …. Though I get the feeling that has already happned so you’ll have to get along there soon and see what the new owners have in store for the place…. was a cool little joint, though I have to confess I didn’t get out there much, it was cool the few times I did go there.
In other news Smiths Alternate Bookstore seem to be about to expand over the newsagent that used to be next door, I like this venue and I like what Nigel does, great to see it getting bigger and better! Kudos!
This week doesn’t seem to be a lot going on except for METAL!!! Both happening at the basement of course and both internationally recognised bands that are sure stop those metal cravings if you’re that way inclined
