From CBGB to the Roundhouse

by Modculture 13 July, 2009


Missed this when it launched last month, but From CBGB to the Roundhouse by Tim Burrows certainly looks worth your while if you have an interest in the history of clubs and live music.

According to the blurb, From CBGB to the Roundhouse is 'the first ever exploration of the role that live venues have played and continue to play in the development of popular music', taking in the legendary venues from across the globe, how they have evolved over the years and how many have been lost. Not just big name venues either, you'll find some obscure vintage locations too, as this snippet from the book about reggae/ska venue The Four Aces in Hackney shows.

If that tempts you in, Amazon is selling the book discounted right now – yours for £7.49.
