Why Sydney pub venues are shithouse

So, Sydney's pub venues seem to be limited to the following...

The Sando: Apparently endorses their blatantly racist door policy 100 percent (and threaten to sue anyone who says otherwise). Sounds like shit despite massive p.a.
Bald face Stag (aka the Wall - what? fucking tryhards): Start altercations, call cops, don't pay bands. Dickheads.
Town & Country: Absolutely shit area for bands to play. No fun.

Why do you book shows at these places? (I mean YOU. Old dudes. Hard-ons, Chinese Burns unit, Glen Zombie dog, Graham resist et al). I know options are limited, but that to me just exemplifies how much we need to find alternatives (and we're not naive enough to think we offer that ourselves, it's obvious we need a larger venue that actually supports bands and doesn't just pretend too (hello sando!).

Whilst I can't offer alternatives at this point, I can only hope people booking shows will book them at places people actually want to go to and support.
That's all for now.

*Yeah, there's the townie. But seriously, it's the fucking townie.
*Fuuuuccckkkk the landsdowne.
*The Annandale ceased to be relevant for local bands that aren't you am i years ago. Plus they're so totally up themselves it's unbearable.

More thrash. Less mosh.
I don't know anyone who doesn't smirk just a little at the thought of "violent straightedge" in Hornsby, but I think that was kinda the point (could be wrong though, they might have been deadly serious! But remember this was put out by jay Snapshot. Not exactly a sXe warrior). Seemed to be a pretty self-contained "scene" of close friends fucking around and just, well, having fun. Shows at Hornsby PCYC used to be great. Alot of these people are still playing around in various bands.

Meataxe were: Damien/guitar, Mong/drums.
Spastic Van were: Oldskool/vocals, Dave Ward/guitar, Chris Shields/bass, Mong/drums.
V.B.S were: Mitch/vocals, Tyler/guitar, Nathan/guitar, Mark Smith/bass, Jason/drums.
Fistfull were: XchrisfullX/vocals, Cheeze Weasal/bass, Xsnocone ariX/guitar, Septic Davo/drums.
Nintendo Police were: Davesout/vocals, Shogun/guitar, Gabi/bass, Xsnocone ariX/drums.

Royal Headache fetishists should note Tim plays guitar in Nintendo Police and Chris sings for Fistfull...and here's a rant about NP...

Nintendo Police were a Hornsby-based hardcore band that formed in 1996 and broke up in 2000 (but have reformed for the odd reunion show since). Inspired by bands such as Bad Brains, MDC, DRI, Beastie Boys, and also citing 'skateboarding in shopping centre carparks' as one of their major influences, Nintendo Police were very much a documentation of suburban angst and other teenage experiences.

Dave, Tim and Ari all now play in Baltic. Dave previously also played in Headless Horsemen, Tim has also played in Guts and Dot Dot Dot, and Ari has been in Worse Off and Arkanoid.
