Hi, I'm Kev.
I live in the void between Chippenham and Swindon.
Err, well I play guitar but I'm not in a band (hint, hint....lol). There's more about me on my profile, I'm not one for blowing my own trumpet really. I'm a tad camera shy so unfortunately I don't have a photo.
Going out and getting wasted every weekend doesn't really appeal to me, so I'm not exactly the best person to comment on places to go around here. What I do know about the Swindon area is that there's Riffs Bar out at Hook, west of Swindon, which is suppossed to be good for live music. In Swindon, there's The Victoria, on Victoria Road. I've not actually been in there yet, but there's an Iron Maiden tribute band playing there next month so I'll post afterwards to say if it's any good. Lastly there's The Rollestion and The Furnace (or the clubs offical website). The Rolleston is pretty much your average pub, they have the music on far to loud in there. I like to be able to have a conversation in a pub without having to shout. As for The Furnace, to put it simply it sucks. Bad music, rubbish DJs, incredibly cheesy decor and poorly managed. Avoid it like the plague.
