Off topic somewhat re footy...but what is the Corner like these days? It used to be a great spot for music, same with the old Punters club, and Espy. I know the Espy has had a sex change and the Punters is long dead...but it would be nice if ONE of the old dinosaurs still stand.
Like a cleaned up version of the same place. Still do good bands though. A mix of nostalgic for guys our age and modern stuff which is good. Espy is a bit of a gentrified but classy establishment now with a toe in the water. St Kilda generally is dead, everything is Northside that you'd want go to. Northcote Social Club has vibes of those places. Fitzroy and Collingwood have heaps of good pubs with music.
