Courtney barnett was amazing, but this is a review of the venue, which was anything but. What a tired old dump, really needs to be bulldozed. Old and smelly, and so were the staff.

By cancelling the Lauren/Stephan event they either showed themselves to be politically activist or they caved to the mob. Either way, I am unlikely to ever grace their doors in future.

I traveled a long way for a speaking event at the Powerstation for the Powerstation to cancel the gig 2 hours prior to doors open. Extremely unprofessional. Very, very disappointed and a lot of hard earned cash wasted.

Was looking forward to seeing LAUREN SOUTHERN & STEFAN MOLYNEUX speak. At the very last minute the venue owners pandered to the radical element in our society. Whatever happened to Free Speech? Where is the apology to all those who paid good money to attend,...More

This place is a manipulative, political venue place that stops free speech PAYING people from frequenting. I would NEVER EVER frequent this place even if it was free

This venue is unrealiable. I recommend you do not attend gigs here. Also if you are an artist/band/event coordinator do not choose this as your venue.

Travel half way across the country for a gig just for them to pull the plug with about two hours before the doors open, got there and found a filthy dive so it was probably a good thing, saved me a trip to the hospital...More

Went to see Majid Jordan. I've never been to such a grubby and disgusting venue. The whole place smelled like urine. Do yourself a favour, and avoid this place.

Would never attend this venue again they do not do as they say they will and they can not be relied upon
