Probably the best part about this venue is the size - the international bands that play here are generally can’t sell enough tickets to play Vector Arena, but too popular to play The Kings Arms. So, I’ve been treated a butt load of times too some of my favourite artists in this intimate venue.

Every time I walk past the Powerstation I am blown away by the awesome acts they have coming up. I went to see Peter Hook doing Joy Division songs with my Dad here. It was totally awesome. We had a ball.
