Danny Smith’s Guide to 2008 Pt2

The Black Horse

Kurt Cobain delivered the lethal blow to Heavy Metal in the early nineties; by all accounts it was a mercy killing. Just over a decade later every city harbours the refugees in little die hard pockets. One of these last bastions of the Metal subculture in Birmingham is relatively new and despite its unfortunate location – that’s quite a stomp away from the city centre- it’s thriving due to its community atmosphere, friendly staff, cheap prices and ongoing support for local music.

Vintage Clothing
82-85 Digbeth High st

No where a satisfying, or as cheap, as rooting around a charity shop or car boot sale and finding cool stuff yourself, the imaginatively titled Vintage Clothes  misses the half the fun of vintage clothes by offering exactly what your looking for at competitive prices.
