|Lurching undead-like from my post-apocalyptic Barbegrave, can I suggest the Birdcage on Stamford Hill as a good place to meet in Stoke Newington before the gig? It's close to Stoatie's gaff as well as to The Others, and is quite salubrious.|
However, in order to witness Seth's set, I recommend arriving early, as Defibrillators are on at ~9pm. It's going to be a packed programme of percussion roaming late into the night at a venue whose comfy sofas are legendary, as is the free and gratis table football - and extensive, sheltered smoking area out back for those who indulge.
It will also be lovely to see familiar Barbebarians - A WHOLE ROAST HOG SHALL BE A MAN'S MEAL BEFORE THE MIGHTY WAR DRUMS SOUND THEIR THUNDER O'ER STAMFORD HILL AND DOWN INTO THE VALLEY OF STOKEYYYYY ITSELF. TAKE HEED, O YE MIGHTY TOWERS OF LLUNDAIN - THE BARBARIANS ARE COMING!
