Live and Local goes out at 8 on Saturday nights, bringing you the latest and greatest from the Leeds Music Scene. You can listen to this weeks podcast here
Slotface, Treeboy and Arc – Oporto – Tuesday 14th
James I genuinely cannot think of a better way to spend a Valentines Day than with the Norwegian punks from the band formerly known as Slutface. Treeboy and Arc are also pretty damn week.
Becca Who needs a date when you can go to a gig instead. A slutty night dancing to a band called Slutface is 1000x better than the pains of love.
Eloise Sure to be a tip top evening of jump dancing and head nodding. Feel good music that may just make this your best Valentine’s day yet.
Menace Beach – Brudenell Social Club – Friday 17th
James Great hair, big fuzz, playing the Brude. Menace Beach are synonymous with music in Leeds for me. They made a big step up with the release of their second album on January 20th and this is the last date of the tour to go with it. *says something about hometown gig*
Becca Can’t beat those fuzzy angsty vibes. Also they have a song about haircuts.
Eloise Oh so local. This moody surf rock supergroup end their album tour with a home gig in this Leeds’ institution.
Fling – Milo – Friday 17th
Becca If you’re super edgy then this gig will probably be something you enjoy. However, if Drake is more your thing then I’d steer clear to be honest.
James Mighty Boosh, Axl Rose, David Bowie. Don’t let this relatively sedate video fool you… seeing Fling is to have an experience not easily forgotten. They’re also playing the same place on the same date next month, which is nice.
Eloise Self-acclaimed wonky pop, this Bradford four piece are certainly weird. Go and report back on whether their lead singer wears that incredible purple fur collared coat
Estrons – Headrow House – Saturday 18th
Eloise Sure to be a lively gig. I have no doubt this Cardiff band will deliver on the Saturday night we all desire.
Becca A strong female lead and angry tunes- what more could you possibly ask for. Fight the Patriarchy.
James It feels like every time Estrons come to Leeds they play Headrow… I wonder if they have a loyalty card? They’re one of the best punk bands around right now and if you’re standing near the front of the gig be prepared to get butterflies if Tali looks at you during Make a Man…
With thanks to the Leeds Gig Guide for making this easy, as ever
