You've probably played at The Water Rats in London, maybe you didn't have a great night, well just be glad it wasn't last night, as the ceiling collapsed seconds before soundcheck. 

UPDATE: THE WATER RATS IS CURRENTLY UNDERGOING REPAIRS, AND GIGS WILL BE ON BY THE END OF THE WEEK - MENTAL

So the venue is currently undergoing emergency maintenance and repairs after the ceiling above the stage gave way just before band Israel Nash were due to soundcheck.

The gig was forced to move to the Slaughtered Lamb at short notice.

So, like the majority of London shows, bands won't be expecting soundchecks at The Water Rats for a long time.

You can check out the damage sustained here: (via Facebook)
