  1. Multi-platinum songwriter Chris Barron will be playing his monster hits from The Spin Doctors days (Two Princes, Little Miss Can't Be Wrong) as well as the amazing new solo stuff he's been writing that everyone is talking about! Antifolk legend and Radio 4 star Lach will be performing songs hand-picked from his six releases as well as the new tunes his lach.bandcamp.com fans clamor for. A rare chance to catch these influential journeymen together in an intimate venue. Please buy your tickets in advance so you won't be disappointed. Seating is limited. Between them over 15,000,017 albums sold! http://www.seetickets.com/event/chris-barron-spin-doctors-lach/the-rocking-chair/860586
  2. Sold out in 8 minutes I believe. Incredibly exciting band
  3. We went last night and thought it was up there with as one of the best we have had in Sheffield.
  4. 2015 marks the 35th year since the sad passing of Ian Curtis. So we decided to invite Transmission to perform for us. Tickets will be very limited for this! Devoted to recreating the atmosphere of a live Joy Division gig, Transmission emulate the sound of one of the most inventive, evocative and influential groups of their era. Joy Division were formed in the late 1970s and dissolved in May 1980 after the suicide of lead singer Ian Curtis. The remaining members went on to form New Order and have achieved much critical and commercial success. The influence of Joy Division, however, was far reaching. They were considered the pioneering band of the post-punk movement of the late 1970s and early 1980s. More than 20 years on you can still relive the dark cavernous sound of Joy Division through Transmission one of the leading UK tribute bands. After this we will have dj's playing music from the era around Joy Division, as well as videos and other imagery throughout the venue. Tickets for this are just £8 adv, available online on Seetickets. http://www.seetickets.com/event/transmission-the-sound-of-joy-division/the-rocking-chair/826508
  5. There is definitely a scene rebuilding it's self at the moment. Displace are doing big things and there are some good smaller events also, like this one on Friday. https://www.facebook.com/events/406800569487871/?fref=ts
  6. Sleaford Mods, are doing a tour of towns and cities bands don't normally play. We have booked them in over in Doncaster. This will be a rare chance to catch them in such a small venue! Just 240 cap. Still some tickets available here: http://www.seetickets.com/event/sleaford-mods/the-priory/819675 Sleaford Mods started out sometime during 2006 whilst Jason Williamson was living in Nottingham. Born out of part frustration and part accident, it quickly found its feet as an aggressive verbal onslaught on all that is contrived and connected to the day-to-day hammer of low paid employment and domestic siutations arising from that trap. After a year of working ideas out in both the studio and in live performances, Williamson moved south and took the cause to London for a couple of years and trod the boards there for a couple of years, before returning to Nottingham in 2009. Soon after that return he met Andrew Fearn and the Sleaford Mods became a duo. Fearn’s first work was on the production of “****” – the Mods’ fifth CDr album. Soon after that started stalking the stage and studio with Williamson. Andrew’s involvement meant that Jason was now able to stop creating the samples and loops that littered the early recordings and concentrate on the lyrics, whilst Andrew created numerous tunes for Jason to vent his spleen over. Just after the release of “****” the duo were invited to play a three day festival curated by Nottingham’s Rammel Club. During that weekend a working relationship with Nottingham’s abstract-punk Harbinger Sound label was formed. A relationship which – a year later – resulted in the release of the “Austerity Dogs” vinyl album. This release would be followed by numerous shows around the UK and Europe, including further festival appearances. As word- of-mouth praise for the album slowly spread out and onto the record-buying publics’ radar, “Austerity Dogs” soon sold out of its intial run of 300 copies and has gone one to, as of today, a fourth pressing of the vinyl edition and a CD version was also released. Rave reviews would start to appear in magazines as diverse as The Wire and Uncut, along with interviews being published both on paper and on-line, both here and abroad. The album featured, and topped, many writers polls for the best records of 2013. Helped by a reputation as a great live band backed with a solid set of releases – including four 7″s released by the likes of Matador and X-Mist amongst others over the last few months – behind them. Not only is the new album “Divide and Exit” due to arrive in April 2014 – in both a vinyl and CD version, but a retrospective 2LP set will be released in Germany during the coming months too. “Divide and Exit” has already won extensive critical praise in the run up to its release date.
  7. Had a tuna steak here last week, was cooked perfectly.
  8. Haha. Sheffield has one of the smallest city centres, relative to it's size as a city in the country. The Moor Market is in a much better location and as time passes and the rest of the moor is brought upto spec, we will finally have a strip that can compete. The market is top. Just needs more support from people who don't want to walk around a city centre.
  9. No not at all. There is some rock, but we have indie/soul/mod/hip-hop
  10. We are pleased to announce the recent opening of The Rocking Chair (former Nelson Rock Bar) It has had a large renovation and is now open.

Email thomas.weatherall@gmail.com with any enquiries
  11. 'Banter' Pretending it is banter is one of the most annoying parts.
  12. It is directed against your direct competition whilst not aiming anything similar at any of the other posts on here. They have not even posted in here to list their offers. Your posts on here and SPS put me off coming to G.
  13. So diss Genting on here? But don't comment on any of the other suggestions on this thread. Give over James, really unprofessional. Common Room only reserve tables with a package, you can still go in there free but would not be guaranteed seating. Napoleons on Eccy Road are also showing it and are offering a free American Buffet. So plenty of options.
