Melbourne Music Venue: The Gasometer Hotel

The Gaso, 10/05/2020

Address: 484 Smith St, Collingwood VIC 3066

Trading as The Gasometer Hotel (from 2011), was also know as Gasometer Hotel (1861 to 1997), Irish Murphy’s (1997 to 2000), Father Flanagan’s Hotel (2001 to 2010 (information via https://collingwoodhs.org.au/view/all-hotels-2/entry/44/).

Currently this venue is up for sale. There’s some nice interior shots via the link https://www.commercialrealestate.com.au/business-for-sale/gasometer-hotel-1p4990-2016213506. Hopefully it will stay a venue rather than turning into appartments.

1st gig to see here was Home Blitz, Ruined Fortune Band, Constant Mongrel and East Link, on 7/10/2012. (going by my concert archives account https://www.concertarchives.org/gregory/venues/the-gasometer-hotel–10)

Highlight were Maggot Fest Three and seeing my mates band The Pink Tiles play a residency in the upstairs band room.

Above photo has current colour of red, which I didn’t notice as most of the times I would be here at night time. This corner shot is at the tram stop for the 86, where I would normally get off.

9/09/2018 – picture of the band room looking down from the mezzanine level, which you can also see the retractable roof. Not sure if the band was The Sugarcanes or Baby Blue.
The Pink Ties playing in the upstairs band room, was taken during their Wednesday residency for June 2013.
