#82. HMV Picture House, 31 Lothian Road, Edinburgh

I forgot about this one, which should really be post #64 ½. We saw the band Cake play a great show at this beautiful converted movie theatre back on November 16, 2011. The rear of the venue was wall-to-wall bars, but with a limited selection of beer. Still, they did serve Guinness and Strongbow, and what a great place to see a concert!


UPDATE: we saw The Lemonheads on April 18, 2012 at the HMV. It was too loud. And there was too much of The Lemonheads for my liking, but Meghan enjoyed the show. Here are some more pictures of the venue. The upstairs was open this time.


UPDATE 2: we saw M83 on June 27, 2012. It was great, except the din of the crowd talking and texting was almost loud enough to drown out Anthony Gonzalez and his particular brand of shoegazing retro synth-pop.
