but in covent garden there is / was a club called Roadhouse , plays / played Rock .

IS but i think unfortunatelly PLAYED-last time I went there they played crap...
I found a great pub in soho- FOX, with a gargoyle above the door- Wardour Street, not far from China Town. Great rock / hard rock / metal music- and a nice, VEERY nice crowd, very colourfull, very loud :) Often there recently.
Unfortunately English people listen to crap music nowadays so there aren't taht many good (or any actually) rock places, rock clubs... Pity... But what do you expect in the country that thinks Robbie Williams is the best (or almost the best) entertainer ever...?

is it dangerous to travel around London with the tube by night? What would be the best (and most safe)way to reach places at night?

London, one of the biggest metropolis in the world- and the tube... DOESN'T WORK AT NIGHT, my friend. As ridiculous as it sounds, that's the reality. Either black cab (don't take mini cabs, they are useless) or a night bus... And it's not easy at night to get from point A to point B...
I was never even once assaulted or attacked, but I can't say it's very safe. As long as you avoid places like Peckham, Brixton, New Cross or Camberwell (where I live) at night you should be fine. :)

If you want to get around ( Reasonably ) cheaply in the daytime in London , you can buy something called a travelcard - (not sure how much they are now , but no where near as expensive as a cab )a travelcard means you can hop on as many buses , tubes and trains in london as you want .

Now they went up quite a lot... They have this OYSTER thing now... which doesn't work on trains- so you have to buy another ticket anyway... bloody hell... There's definitely no point in getting OYSTER for few days, 7-Day Bus Pass is about 13 pounds nowadays... Travelcard- no idea...

You've got pick and choose when you go to Roundhouse in Cov Garden as the quality of music varies and can't be guaranteed .

Fenderek, when are you next going to the (snooty) fox? I'll nip in and buy you a beer - or two.

I'd recommened seeing a few gigs. Hyde Park is a no no in April - they'll be nothing on.

Check out listings for Astoria, Shepherds Bush, Scala, Brixton etc. If there is a band you like you are sure of good music.

I like Islington to go out. I tend not to go very often though.
If you like indie music then Koko in camden is jolly good.

Actually- I'm going to be there this Saturday about 6(ish)- upstairs if it's not closed or if they don't play KISS-like music (hate pudel metal hard rock)
I'll be wearing a... DREAM THEATER T-shirt :)
Nip in- and I may buy you a beer too :)

They do- only they don't ahve pads to touch the OYSTER CARD, so you can't use those pre-paid- you have to buy a ticket... Ridiculous indeed...
