I spent an evening watching Four Short of a Miracle perform a hyped up gig in Guildford…whilst eating Chinese! I can’t think of a better way to spend an evening. There’s this amazing little venue I went to called The Boileroom, where they serve not only drinks, but Chinese dishes at the bar. And it comes in those wonderful little cardboard boxes that you only see in American sitcoms.
The Boileroom is a quirky and unique live music venue and it’s comfortable and homely. It’s not often you find a small venue where pillars or tables don’t obstruct your view of the stage! Because of its small 250 capacity, you really get to feel the excitement and the atmosphere that the crowd and the bands produce. Four Short of a Miracle certainly know how to throw one hell of a party. You could feel the love bouncing off the walls, shared between the band and their fans.
The lighting and sound in The Boileroom are some of the best I’ve seen and heard as far as small venues go. The light show reflected the hectic energy of Four Short of a Miracle to a T. Thumbs up to the small team at The Boileroom; they’ve done a wonderful job with the place. And thumbs up to Four Short of a Miracle for putting on a great show.
Oh, I almost forgot – you can buy tickets for further gigs – once again, at the bar! It’s probably the most equipped bar in history – it’s multifunctional – and it goes on my list of top bars. I’ll definitely come back again, I feel like one of the family there.
If you only visit one bar/venue in the South East this year, make it The Boileroom.
