The Triangle was located in Gosta Green right in the middle of Aston University and the Birmingham Institute for Art & Design. It housed the fabled  experimental Arts Lab group, members of whom would go on to create great things in Theatre and Audio Visual disciplines. It also housed the wonderful and much missed Triangle Cinema.

But it was as a live music venue that it was probably best known. In my memory, it was great venue and played host to some brilliant indie bands in the mid 80’s.

This ticket stub belongs to a good friend of mine, Dave Kal, and was for a Balaam and the Angel gig which I also attended, bizarrely, with my dad! Signed to local label Chapter 22 Balaam had fleeting success but were highly regarded in the Goth scene.
