Check out this item about The View (the Scottish band, not Rosie O’Donnel and co…who I saw earlier this month at Mercury Lounge) from this week’s edition of Popbitch (if you don’t read Popbitch, you don’t have a clue, do you?):
The View rock the Liverpool Travelodge
Indie hopefuls The View played a gig in Liverpool in December. They stayed at the Travelodge near the Cavern Club. One band member put his duvet in the bath-tub, turned the taps on and then left. How rock and roll. Not surprisingly this flooded many of the rooms below.
The damage cost about seven grand. Good job The View’s new single is top three this week as it will help them pay for it.

The hotel warns you of “noise from the building next door due to building work being undertaken” but not of “mischievous young musicians flooding all your belongings”. One double room costs 60 GBP (around 133 USD) per night–what an economic way to rock and roll! The rooms The View allegedly might have trashed might have looked like this blue and white gingham wonder–perhaps they were not fans of the cheery check pattern or vibrant orange walls.
