Psychotic Reactions, Parish Bar, Huddersfield 01/10/2011
So to cut to the chase, I headed down to The Parish Bar In Huddersfield last night with a new coursemate of mine, to their regular Psychotic Reactions night. It was a pretty standard affair as far as pub gigs go - three bands of varying genres and capability, (Healthy Boy, Milky Onions and Dead Rabbits if you're interested) rock dj in the corner, but something about it felt special to me: the graffiti and lyrics on the bathroom stall artistic rather than meaningless scribble, the retro dvds on constant repeat, the non judgemental attitude to anybody that walked in the door, regardless of their clothing or company. Maybe I've just become too used to clubs, but the individuality of the place seemed to rub off on me. In the space of a few short hours, I talked to all sorts of random but interesting people, watched bands I wouldn't normally pay to see (or have normally even heard of) and had a really nice time with some new friends, all for £2. This hasn't been a proper review, granted, but I feel it was an important personal milestone.Yes, I think I could get used to University life.
