    What exactly was wrong with calling it the Temple Bar Music Centre ? It did exactly what it said on the tin. Or perhaps that name wasn't trendy enough ?

    They better not come up with some poncey new name for the revamped Whelans.

    Gah.. it sounds like a kid's TV show.. the other title that they were going to go with, 'Cargo' was almost as bad. What's wrong with keeping 'Temple Bar Music Centre' indeed?

    I liked the Music Centre too, if it ain't broke etc. They have already advertised loads of gigs as Cargo, but apparently the Cargo in London contacted them and are not letting them use the name.

    It would seem many years ago, the building was a button factory, hence the new name.

    If it was just a studio, then I guess it would kind of work. You know, buttons... mixing desk.... A factory where music is made etc. But it doesn't really work for a venue/studio. Are they copying the Knitting Factory in New York?

    Its not bad, I guess. But the quaint name doesn't really match the surroundings. Temple Bar is about as quaint and homey as a burning swastika.

    The Music Centre was fine, its a music venue with practice rooms and a studio, hence a music centre....its in temple bar,, hence the temple bar bit...

    Jeebus i dunno....the button factory?

    are folks not going to just keep referring to it as the music centre anway?

    suppose though, it wasnt long ago that the tripod complex was the red box, pod and chocolate bar!!

    Left out the word 'still'.... What I meant to say was 'From what I have heard it still to be called 'Cargo'... From an, er, insider I was talking to last night. But he may still be wrong.

    I think a name change for the Music Centre is an AWFUL idea - ya, Tripod got away with it nicely, but it WAS called the Pod before that, so it worked well. Cargo/Schmargo/Butthole Factory - whatever, they're all terrible names. The website says they're looking for suggestions to be mailed to them - anyone got any ideas?

    I think we should call it Egbert or maybe Bob.

    jesus... is this for real or are people just winding us up?... the button factory?!!!

    possibly one of the worst names i've ever heard for a venue... especially one that had established itself as a serious live music venue.

    it would actually be embarressing to say you played there... i know i'll be sticking to saying i played in the templebar music centre, not the fcking button factory... sounds like a cadbury's sponsored creche!
