Banquet Records in Kingston

Don't really know how to start this thread as it's probably going to sound like a bit of an advert for Banquet, but I just wanted to see if anyone else was aware of the store and moreso the gigs they put on within Kingston, something that as far as I'm aware makes them a completely unique record store and certainly the best in South London (unfortunately on the wrong side).

In the past year or so I've managed to catch Frank Turner, The 1965 and Reel Big Fish all within Kingston, the latest being Reel Big Fish within the Rose Theatre last week. I must admit Reel Big Fish was a bit of a let down compared to their previous shows, unfortunately the Rose doesn't have much floor space which really does affect the ticket sales for the show. The floor selling out within days of going on sale, but the seating failing to get anywhere near selling out. However, not only are banquet very aware of the limitations of the shows they outline them in this blog post.

To view the link you have to Register or Login

For anyone interested they have some great shows coming up, unfortunately Royal Blood has now sold out, as they are probably one of the only bands that I have heard this year that are not only doing something a bit different, but actually making a name for themselves at the same time. But the likes of Charlie Simpson, Finch, Mayday Parade and Catfish and the Bottlemen are bands that in previous years you would of expected to launch their albums with HMV shows real support for a shop that seems to really care about music.

If you read the gigs and reviews thread there is a lot of talk about Banquet.

I know the guys quite well and was there earlier. They've got some really cool stuff planned over the next few months.

Saw Slow Club in store last week. Was excellent although they should make people who are above 6 ft stand near the back...

Go to New Slang quite a bit too. Seen Metronomy, Vampire Weekend, Babyshambles and more there. Although it was better when it was at Hippodrome!

Great record store- long may they continue.

I thought it was great but they spent the whole set complaining about everything.

McCluskys serves it's purpose. They know it's not perfect but not many more options which is why The Rose is an interesting opportunity.

A lot of bands enjoy New Slang because it is a very well run organisation but also gets band close and personal to the fans.

How was it? My fiancÚ manages them, so the lead singer is starting to develop an affection for Palace:

I’m wounded that I’m missing the Jamie T show.

They’ve got some really cool stuff coming up though, and the work they are doing to branch out of just doing New Slang shows could be fantastic.

Managed to get tickets to Jamie T, went along at 4.30 and virtually no que, came back about an hour later and there must of been at least 200-300 people. A mate said it was mentioned on XFM the other day so may be more than just the typical local gig. May have to limit it to two per person in the future though, I must admit I was very tempted to buy more than I needed and walk to the back for a profit.

They were in 2 minds how to do ticketing. The only time I've not been able to pull in a favour and rightly so if people wanted to queue for it. I couldn't have actually made it but was hoping to get a couple as a favour for a mate.

I also got the impression that the initial idea was not to host it at New Slang.

It was also on NME ask ell.
