RIP The Alley Bar

According to Time Off this week, The Alley Bar is closing down in a couple of weeks time. The Alley' holds a special place in my memories as one of those intimate dingy little bars that was home to some very great acts over the years. Along with seeing the likes of Bernie Hayes, The Skippy, Machine Translations, and The Titanics, it's where I first saw and heard Clare Bowditch & The Feeding Set and City City City. It's also the venue that Leonard played a number of gigs at!

So to The Alley Bar, thanks for the music, the band competitions, the Toohey's Olds, and River Phoenix (the friendly heckler). It was a fun time!
