The Astoria gears up for final farewell

The shutting down of grotty but cool London venue the Astoria is a terribly sad thing...and the fact that Manumission is hosting the closing party is just effing tragic.

Rumour had it that the venue was trying to book Kasabian and/or The Who for their final ceremony. The full lineup won’t be announced until later this year but until then Manumission’s people have said the outcome will be a suitable dance rock fusion.

With yet another seminal London venue shutting down early this year, it seems weekends will mostly be about saying fond farewells to the good stuff we knew and loved.

Berlin anyone?
