Whammy Bar Information
Whammy Bar, Newton is your underground live music venue in Auckland!
Daily: 21.30 till late
I don't think it is even worth the one star. Doors opened at 9:30 and the first band wasn't on till 11. Get ya heads in the game. The poor organisation would probably be the main reason why their were only like 20 people who turned up. Antagonist A.D ruled! They can come to Christchurch where we have REAL venues, well at least they have decent toilets and run somewhat on time.
Whammy Bar is a quaint little space in a basement off K Rd. Perfect for a sort of laid back, slightly grungy atmosphere and serving some cheap beers with friendly, fun bar staff.
Please let the promoters know that advertising gigs as starting at 8 when the doors open at 9:15 puts people off. I went up there at 8 and the place was locked; there wasn't even a notice on the door explaining why. I asked at the club downstairs and they said the gig was 9:15. What a waste of an evening. It is unlikely I will return unless I especially want to see a band.
