The Darkness!

Went with a group of friends to see The Darkness last night. Brilliant gig in a small intimate venue. Easy to move around in and clean toilets!

Attended a gig here in March 2015. In terms of a music venue, it's very poor. The venue hall itself is small and cramped, there are only 2 single doors at one side to get in and out. This led to great problems when the gig had finished, it took over 15 minutes to get out. Not aided by the... More

Had an amazing night at the Nerve centre the other night - staff were helpful and welcoming - the venue itself is great for live gigs and the two bands I saw We Were Promised Jetpacks and Fatherson who were both amazing and put on great shows - the only negative would be that more people didn't turn out to...

The nerve centre has the potential to be the music hot spot of Derry city, but in recent years it's becoming that of a faded memory. Live music acts are barely on anymore, and if they are on, there is no promotion or advertisement. It feels that you need to know someone connected to the establishment to get involved. The... More

What a pity, given the good work and exciting projects run by the Nerve Centre that common civility is lacking and hostile aggression openly on display by your receptionist towards myself and my girlfriend this afternoon. Having decided to spend some time in Derry as tourists from Belfast, we were curious on passing, to see what sort of a venue... More

The nerve Centre is probably the best thing ever to happen in Londonderry, the rock bands that go there are awsome!

I have had the pleasure of seeing some of my all time favourite bands perform in the Nerve Centre and i have to say that it was an unrivalled venue for live music. Staff are pleasant, helpful without being pushy and the venue itself is well laid out, clean and tastefully decorated. Adjacent to the main performance area there is... More
