Dry The River

Indie rock, Folk

  • Critics' choice

They may have the acoustic strumming and sweet, quavering vocal harmonies of an Americana act, but these indie folkies are actually from pre-Olympic Stratford. The tones of lead singer Peter D'artagnan Liddle recall a less emotionally loaded Jeff Buckley,...

Dry The River

The Electric Soft Parade

Pop, Psych and garage rock

  • Critics' choice

Brighton's swirly guitar pop-crafting brothers Tom and Alex White headline, delivering harmonies that are all over the shop, yet guaranteed to get stuck in your head, as fine new album 'Idiots' attests.

horrible bouncers with the wrong attitude, watch out Friend of mine tried to get in but bouncers rejected him because it was just him??? not in a group or sth?? Apart from that the place is cool, it is the only spot worth to visit between clapham and wimbledon

I went for a drink on a Saturday and was hugely disappointed, it was loud house music playing all night. Definitely not my cup of tea and no one was dancing. The venue is perfect and has potential to be amazing, they just need to sack the dj.

Robert

Terrible bar staff, incredibly slow and not very friendly. The cloak room was a joke. Full of idiots! never going back!

Rick

Utterly woeful music. The likes of Drop it like it's hot by Snoop and Gangsters Paradise by Coolio although great tunes in their own right are neither current or relevant in 2012. There was literally no current music played. It was all RnB bullshit from way back. Seriously wtf?!

I like the general vibe of the place, like the drinks quality and decor, etc - but am considering going there on weekend nights for convenience, and it's just not worth the 10-minute walk! The MUSIC is utter toss at least half the time I go there, otherwise it can be good breakbeat-based party tunes, fun mashups and similar (or indie bands on occasion) the other times. I don't particularly like indie, but at least they get a sound engineer in, so that the treble on their iffy sound-system doesn't brutalise your ears. It was really bad on the DJ nights, irrespective of music, unpleasant. It's even harder to socialise when the sound's bad and at too high a volume to compensate (or whatever). Let alone with earplugs in. Of course, most people may be drunk and not care, but as a tinnitus sufferer, I know it's doing them no good either. It could really do with getting in less cheesy DJs on the weekends, people will definitely still come, it's not like there's a choice of late places in Tooting. There is a massive choice elsewhere of places that play cheese and really simple, boring house, though, so Antic / The Tram and Social ought to stay that good bit more distinguished, as is their remit elsewhere.

Fantastic setting, but service is so slow that it took at least 15mins each time to get served. Has the potential to be SO much better.

I went to Tram and Social a few weeks ago. Really different from how I remember it but I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. It was really busy on a Saturday night, well after midnight there was a big crowd still going strong. The music was good, atmosphere was pretty fun and got served almost immediately at the long bar. We headed upstairs to the quieter balcony as there were no seats, but we didn't stay up there long as they closed upstairs soon after and we ended up outside in the beer garden/yard at the front. I cant quite work out if my good night was through the company and free flowing drinks, or the brilliant atmosphere, but it's definitely worth trying again and seeing if i have as good a time, maybe try and get there a bit earlier.
