Just to let you all know that I understand that those fab folks at Electric Dreams are planning to do one of their cool Ashes To Ashes nights as an aftershow for the UV Hammy Apollo gig on Fri 24th April. I'm guessing that it will be at the (very cool) London Stone bar, which is literally falling out distance from Cannon St and a short crawl from Bank tube stations.

Whilst not particularly near Hammersmith, for those who do venture out at night in London it is emminently do-able from Hammersmith and still pretty central.

Whilst this may seem like a shameless plug (which it is) can I say that I am not connected to this event - just a regular attendee and a big fan so woo-hoo laugh laugh laugh

For those not familiar with London in the early hours, there are no tubes or trains but there is a regular, extensive and cheap bus network throughout the night (which I make regular use of), which is useful depending on where you want to get to. For those of you staying in hotels then you may have the option of bussing it or taking a taxi.

And just to say that my hope is for as many who want to, to be able to have fun and party their heads of before, during and after the gig and this seems like a very, very good deal (and I'm guessing there's likely to be little else on offer).

Party on Garth!

I was due to DJ at this aftershow event, but I've been told the venue is double booked thus as things stand it's not happening. frown

That's a shame Steve. So, does that mean no aftershow full stop?

The last I heard was that the Electric Dreams guys are trying to find a different suitable venue.

Indeed - what a bugger!! frown Apparently the Saturday event at the London Stone is still happening, but it leaves a bit of a hole on the Friday night after the gig. If anyone has any ideas or knows of any suitable nights / venues then do shout smile

This previous announcement will be to do with Voxgate before the gig - but you never know, an after gig announcement may be made too.

An 'Aftershow' announcement? No, not by the three of us - that I can assure you.

I'm sure that whether it be pre or post show it will be possible to meet up, even if we revert to plan a and just agree to meet from a certain time at the pub that was mentioned originally?

Yes, it may be crowded, and maybe being the UK it'll still be a tad chilly.. But the important thing is that we're there! Let's be honest, it'll be so good to just be in this position that many of us never thought we'd see, I for one remember banging on about it on the original forum back in 2002!

So I don't care where it is.. How disorganized it is.. Let's agree a watering hole, a time and a way to recognize each other and go for it!

I'm sure the three voxkateers have enough on their plates without sorting out our pre and/or post gig shenanigans!!

Hi all - has anyone had any ideas about possible nights/suitable alternative venues? Doesn't look like I'll be able to make the pre-show event (probably left it too late to request tickets anyway!) but am definitely up for a post-gig knees-up!!

Many thanks in advance to anyone who's already trying to sort something. Can't wait - only 4 weeks to go!! excited excited

Anyone have any suggestions for a post-show Voxgate venue near to the Hammersmith Apollo?

There's a pub called The Distillers
(W6 9PH)
I don't know when it shuts, or if it's easy to get to from the Apollo, but maybe someone could look into this?
