Goth Club Goes Up In Smoke!

The Birmingham Night Club Fire last night (City Nightclub Destroyed By Fire; BBC News Online; Sunday 12th November 2006) was apparently at Edwards No8 which, according to the site's listing was hosting..

Saturday at Edward's No.8
Bars & Music: Bar/Club Night
Three rooms of classic metal, rock, glam, goth, alternative and electronic 1980s anthems.

According to reports the 500 or so people at the club were evacuated without any major problems so I don't suppose I need to worry about any of my Brum/West Midlands friends who might have been out clubbing! But still. I wonder whether the Slimelight would have been evacuated as safely had a similiar fire started there!

Hopefully nothing too expensive or unreplaceable?

Slimes actually has lots of emergency exits.

That's good to know :p

Now all that people need to do is herd the drugged up clubbers towards them! :p

I know that the area that Sliemlight uses for the club is only a small part of the actual building so I presumed there were plenty of routes out other than the main stairwell to the ground floor exits.

and you think the scenesters in Brum were any less under the influence of alcohol or other substances? I think not somehow!

Many people seem to think that is the case.

There's two on the upstairs floor, 4 exits from the middle floor, and almost the entire side of the ground floor room opens up on to the street.
