Street Address/DirectionsThe Union, Cambridge Rd, Portsmouth (near Scandals!)
DescriptionEvery Tuesday there is a night of rock, metal and punk music currently dj'd by Evil Biscuit (mostly) down at the student's union. If you are not a student you can get in by knowing one, so if this applies to you a butterfly net and specimen jar may be a worthwhile investment! Tis generally very friendly and lively with a wide selection of different types of music, recently including CradleOF, old skool, and more black metal etc! And obviously the drinks are cheaper. Entry is 3 to non-members.

Would be better if a few more Gothic types attended; still it's been fun the couple of nights I've been. The decor is a bit dire though! :-P

Inside news from a student at Portsmouth, Rock Night may be breathing its last few breaths. It has gone to every fortnight for now, due to low numbers I believe.

Rock Night may be ending. Its gone from every week to every fortnight, and its future is uncertain, due to recent low numbers I believe.

-more inside news- however you might be rewarded after christmas if you attend the union night with Mr DJ E. Biscuit.. numbers depending obviously, it might then receive its new lease of life. So its up to you, folks ;)

came here with a student buddy once. student unions tend to be full of trendies as this one did, you have to go to your specialist pubs for more goth nights. i liked the decor...

Having had the thrill of attending a Uni open day, the very idea of attending anything here is disturbing... unless you like very 'modern' decor(yellow and orange walls and mirrors everywhere). tis a disturbing place *suggests the union should consider equal opp's for those other than 'trendies'...

Well our first MIG Soc night went rather swimmingly, they will see much more of us in the weeks after xmas. Provisionally it is on random tuesdays from whenever until 1pm, the site is updated regularly with news and events; www.mig-soc.co.uk. Since it is the metal, industrial and goth society I just think it deserves a mention... ;)

I forgot to say- it is held downstairs in the Sports bar, rather than the appalingly decorated Lux.

I would not recommend the union at all - even the students there are mostly unfriendly towards 'alternative' types during the daylight hours - and the bar staff made a point of not serving us before the 'trendies' so after 25mins of waiting in a not particularly busy bar we left!
