place to play? does anyone know of any suitable venues?
is it? someone must live there?
as I've never played there
but I lived there and watched many a gig so I'd guess yes.
checkout www.sandmanmagazine.co.uk/sheffield (for some reason I can't get into the site now but you know the drill)
What size venue are you after anyway? There's rooms above pubs/bar style places apart from the bigger venues like the student unions and clubs.
but then realised DiS has already done this for me, here:
www.the-plug.com has links for hiring it. Otherwise, places like boardwalk, the Harley, even the SU are all good venues. And yup, there are always cupboards in pubs.
at The Cricketers. When I saw it my heart sank (terrible sticky-carpeted room above a pub) but the soundmen were remarkably good and the crowd were super-enthuistic so it ended up ace!
apologies, I am a spelling spazz.
thanks for info!
found a thingy called Klub 1917 that looks good. check it:
is pretty good, if rather small
and the grapes is probably the best venue for little gigs. there's also d'n'r which is where klub 1917 (which is a club night) is held, the boardwalk which is a nice size but usually has rubbish rawk cover bands or old blues singers on, the casbah which usually rips off bands and doesn't get many people in and if you're a bit rocky then there's the corporation
sheffield band people and venue promoters hang out here:
people are always posting asking for bands to support them and stuff so it's a good place to start
