Alternative Club Night at The Bowery District, Reading
Last weekend we went down to The Bowery District, a club below Sub 89 in Reading, for the first time, to check out their alternative rock and metal night. We were tipped off about the event by the bassist from Rage DC, after meeting him at Rebellion Festival. Firstly I was pleased that the online event had a prize draw for a bottle of Jägermeister which was free to enter (You had to share the event on Facebook) and the odds for winning were pretty high if you were going in a group. Also they do entry as cheap as £2 before 10pm and £3 before 11 (if you tag yourself and your friends names on their Facebook) so we were already off to a good start before we got there. Walking in, it was pretty busy and the building inside was really decent, the DJ booth, dance floor and sound system were well thought out and sounding great. The bar staff and bouncers were all really nice and it was quick to get served. The people I met that night were all metal heads and goths which was brilliant. Everyone I knew bumped into someone they knew and by the end of the night I felt like I knew everyone there. The music was like going back to my skateboarding school days, lots of System of a Down, Papa Roach, Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park so there were lots of sing alongs. Overall I’d definitely recommend the night to any punks, goths, metal fans or alternative people. It was a good laugh and not for anyone who takes themselves too seriously on the dacefloor!
