Just received sad news that this venue is closing down to be replaced by a Turkish supermarket. 8(
Sad, sad news…
I adore places which are so different you feel like you have opened door into a different country or jumped back a couple of decades. The Standard Music Venue in Walthamstow is one of these places – old school in such a good way!
They have tribute acts on every weekend and you get to see a great copy of KISS, Guns N’Roses, Rolling Stones, Blondie and many others.
Animal print, studded leather, chains, New Rock boots and denim older than myself – it’s all here. Plus lots of beer and friendly people minus pretentious attitude. Ah, I have not witnessed that old rocker style for a very long time and it inspires me!
Yeah baby, rock’n’roll!
