Hey all,

I just started at Sheffield Uni & was wondering what good nights there are for serious music fans!
I donít know the scene yet Ė coming from London Iíve been spoilt for choice.

The Grooveharder night on Sunday looks good with Bez, Shaun Ryder & Tony Wilson Ė Iím a huge Monday/ Stone Roses/ New Order fan!

Any other nights that people would recommend? I love Indie but am also quite a big dance fan! I know about Gatecrasher but Iím looking for some really good Underground nights Ė not just Student cheesy parties!

do you like psy trance or hard trance? Planet zogg at ZERO would be up your street if you do!!!!

GC is ace when its on (bank holidays usually), and there are plenty of other little nights to go to.

Whats ur fav music style?

Cheers Guys!

ScottF - Music I like:

Band wise - Kasabian, Bloc Party, Killers, The Rolling Stones, Happy Mondays, Stone Roses, Faithless, - really open to most as long as they have good songs (not like some of the crap that's currently big in NME!)

Dance wise - Chemical Bro's, Jacques Lu Cont, Rae & Christian etc.....

Damn u just missed lu cont a couple of weeks ago - get yourself down to urban gorilla if u like that kind of stuff tho PM me if ur going and ill buy u a 'welcome to sheffield' pint!!

On the band front we don't really have them coming to play sheffield much (i wish :D ) but the leadmill has nights which play songs by them or there is quite a vibrant music scene, kasbah is good sometimes and there are loads more to go to!!!

If you like Rae and Christian then there is a night called Lights down Low, it is put on by Low Life records....Quality night, great atmosphere. It used to be held at 'Under the Boardwalk' but not sure anymore.
The alternative room in Zogg is cool too

Sadly theres no second room since Zogg moved from the Arches to the one roomed Zero - which is a real shame as it was great to have funky music upstairs as well as 'aving trance/techno downstairs...

It means I dont get to play at Zogg anymore as I dont think Zero is quiet ready for some heavy afrobeat just yet!!

Get to the Grapes any night of the week for live bands, Sheffield has some awesome unsigned bands. Go to www.l2sb.co.uk/forums to see them promote themselves/bicker with each other like children.

I came from London too, its a welcome break to be here and calm down a bit socially (thats why i moved !!) but its hard coz youre so spoilt for choice in London.

Try Razor Stiletto, first Saturday of every month, at Dot Zero on Matilda Street. Plays indie/glam/80s/electro and general cheese. Also normally have a couple of acts/bands on, mostly indie or electro. Fantastic night out :)

Or try Brighton Beach

http://www.brightonbeachclub.co.uk/sheffield/

"The club is split into two rooms: Room 1 pumping out classic sixties hits alongside the cream of British pop and new garage rock, while Room 2 provides a heady cocktail of 60ís soul, northern Jazz and Freakbeat."

Brighton Beach is on THIS FRIDAY. If any peeps here want to go drop me a line and I'll pick up some tix.

We went down to it at the uni for the first time last month and it was pretty damn good. Also got very busy by 12am even though students were away.

Heheheh no I moved away from London coz I HAD to calm down - for financial. health&safety and mental reasons !!!! (slight exaggeration there btw...)

I just mean theres not so much temptation here, which for me is a good thing. I must be getting old <sigh> ;)

Compared to london the amount of nights that sheff has is absolutly scary, but there are still plenty around if u wanna get wrecked!!!
