Guys, the Elmo is a mere wispy shadow of the wonderful place it used to be. I've generally boycotted the place since some doofus turned the storied upstairs into some idiotic dance studio, in the worst south Asian taste imaginable. Downstairs features a stage so disconnected from the bar area that it's a joke. The sound system is only adequate (well, it was the last time I was there). The Elmo is a place where I saw Elvis Costello, Wayne Cochrane and the CC Riders,Fats Domino and hundreds more. I even presented artists there — Prof. Longhair and Clannad included (the only appearance Enya ever made in this fair city). How to turn a legendary club into a dump - these guys knew how!

I am with you, Richard. A dump indeed! I was there for Wayne Cochrane and many others. Early days of Morgan Davis, etc. etc.

Hi There,

I would like to know the cost of renting out your venue on a weekend ( Sunday during the day preferably)for a scene of a short film.

Can you advise?

Disappointed to hear that, I have the Vinyl of "April Wine Live at the El Mocambo" I just pictured as a great place to see Great Bands.
Sad. . .

I think what you published made a bunch of sense.
But, what about this? suppose you were to create a awesome headline?
I ain't suggesting your content is not solid., however what if you added a post title to
possibly get folk's attention? I mean El Mocambo is kinda boring.
You should glance at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news headlines to get viewers to open the links.
You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab
people excited about everything've got to say.

In my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.

Hey! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
Does managing a well-established blog like yours
take a lot of work? I am brand new to running a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis.

I'd like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and
views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for
new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my

Hey there would you mind letting me know which web host you're utilizing?
I've loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a fair price?
Many thanks, I appreciate it!

Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard
against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
Any recommendations?

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can
survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
