Charli XCX

R&B, Pop

  • Critics' choice

We keep trying not to like Charli XCX. It's not that she hasn’t got enough things wrong with her – the shameless ’90s revivalism, the super-heavy make-up, her drawling half-rap… And yet she keeps cracking out effortlessly great R&B tracks that make it...

East India Youth

Electronica, Synthpop

  • Critics' choice

London producer/singer-songwriter William Doyle is a rare talent. Not only because his Tim Hecker-esque electronic soundscapes and Byrne- and Bowie-indebted romantic pop songs are so professionally put together for a bedroom artist, but also because he...

Pulled Apart By Horses

Punk and hardcore, Alternative rock

  • Critics' choice

The young Leeds quartet headline with their shouty and aggressive (yet oddly funky) alt rock tuneage, which suggests a collision between DFA 1979 and a poppier Megadeth.

Pop and rock

Back with a superbly furious, surprise-released new album 'Pe'ahi', the Danish fuzz-rock duo bust out some sublimely dark harmonising and plenty of B minor chords.

Say Lou Lou

Synthpop

Two Swedish sisters with Sabatier cheek bones and the voices of angels – well, whispery angels – show audiences how ethereal they can make synthpop sound. The first time they played in the capital, one of Daft Punk was there and took them out for dinner...

Despite phoning in advance to enquire about prices for a group visit for a 33rd birthday we were told ON THE NIGHT that groups are not allowed in the venue. Thanks GAY after we spent £640 to get to you. That is a joke for a start a club that does not allow groups. Pathetic.

I am an LGBT officer and was disgusted that one of my friends who was female and straight was told she could not come in. Firstly because she was part of a group and secondly she was straight and it was a gay venue. If that had been the other way round at a straight venue then all hell would break loose about homophobia. Clearly its ok for GAY to be heterophobic to her.

I had been warned by people prior to going that the staff we incredibly unfriendly but didn't believe them. How wrong I was.

We left Heaven and walked into a straight venue . No questions asked. Thanks to them they saved the night.

In my opinion if you want a good night DO NOT go to GAY HEAVEN. Clearly they have become blind with money and have forgotten their roots and the people who made them who they are today.

Will not be going back.

I’ve been going to heaven for about 6 years every Monday I was off from work. It has alway been great but last night something very disappointing happened. I was at the bar waiting to be served when a guy came from behind me and phisicslly start pushing me. He was pushing and shouting on me.. He was saying: do u want to be served? He repeated that for many times and still pushing. I reacted and I pushed him away. He then jumped behind the bar.. He was a bartender ..a sneaky one! He called security on radio and 4 guards came and took me out of the club. When I asked them what have I done..they couldn’t answer.. When I tried to explain what happened they start laughing at me and didn’t care even to my friends version who saw the scene. It was horrible and racist.. They asked me if I was gay. Very unprofessional.. Sneaky staff and security.. Unfair.. I was so mad., I didn’t do anything and I was put out for nothing.

Haven't been to the club for several years. It's just sad. Total time wast !!! ANd the staff!!! What's wrong with these people. They are pathetic!

One year on from the previous reviews, nothing has changed with this ridiculously awful place. I agree the door policy is abusive and discriminatory - don't waste your time travelling to this club on the off-chance you will be turned away, moved about or generally insulted by the inexperienced and aggressive door staff. Back in the day when hosted at Astoria G-A-Y was a fun, welcoming place which encouraged all ages, sizes and types to mix together in relaxed harmony - it used to be a refreshing place in a 'gay scene' which is traditionally obsessed with looks and glamour. Sadly The Astoria was tragically knocked down and for some reason G-A-Y chose its new home at Heaven. The place now attracts a "hip young crowd", tagged along by fake blone hair fag hags or groups of "trendoids". Having boycotted the place for some years now following an awful night immediately after the relocation, we decided to return TWICE in the last few weeks to see if the place had changed....sadly not. The first time we were "selected" to leave the queue and join another queue right on the other side of the building, only to find out the other queue was 10 times longer and had already been informed that if in that queue only "members" would be getting in...awful, given that we were practically inside in the original queue. Upon returning last week we were told we were "too drunk" by a "head bouncer" who appeared from nowhere and hadn't actually seen us - as it was 12.30 am OF COURSE we had been drinking, but no, we were not drunk - we attempted to discuss the matter with the young cronies of "head of security", i.e. to demonstrate we were talking rationally and not aggressively, we simply wanted to know upon what basis we were "too drunk" but no, we were shouted at to "get out of the queue". Yes, we are in our 30's, so perhaps this was the reason...disgusting. Upon leaving a young twink screeched at me that I hadn't been asked to leave because we were too drunk, but "because your hair looks like straw". This kind of confirmed that the place was not for me anyway and will NOT be returning. Bring back the old G-A-Y....or just go to Vauxhall instead.

Very unpleasant and pretencious staff, atmosphere is not a patch on Astoria that preceded it
