The Vanguard became Leadbelly

What none of us did between designing the postcards in June 2016 and hitting the print button this week in September 2016 was to check whether The Vanguard – ye old musical institution on Newtown’s King Street – remains “The Vanguard”.

It appears The Vanguard is no more.  In fact, in July, it changed its name to the far grungier Leadbelly.

Entertainment news report Leadbelly offers free music Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and they have dropped burlesque and comedy from the old entertainment roster.

We haven’t been to Leadbelly yet (obviously), but we plan to rectify that mistake in October.  For now, we are reserving judgement on Leadbelly… still feeling sore at the inconvenient name change which means our 10,000 postcards are out of date before they are event printed.
