Great venue the Roscoe

The Duchess was spot on as a venue, a lot of small bands played there before they made it (oasis,Nirvana,Del Amitri,Quireboys) and bands that had made it played as well,Status Quo played not long before it shut,Snowy white,Steve Marriott (Small Faces) and many more,John Keenan was the man who got the bands on there and his still pulling the strings at the Roscoe,and to finish the night off at the Duchess,a kebab shop next door......good times.............A glass fronted shops there now BOSS i think........

Yeh thats it now Gaz Tribute bands,not that i'm against them but i think bands that write there own stuff have been lost,hardly any about nowadays,a few months ago Sid went to see a Chubby Brown tribute act at the Miggy Conny club,whats that all about..........i would have thought a tribute act was those who are dead or not perfoming no more,but i've had good times watching tribute acts and a sore head the next morning B)

My live venue gig guide to Leeds 1, The Brudenall- best venue by a mile 2 The Cockpit - a bit small but decent easy to get to and good parking 3 The Wardrobe - decent sound but dont get enough bands imo 4 The Roscoe - out of the way and even though they get great tribute bands struggle to get punters through the door, a shame because it deserves more. 5 O2 Academy- a big venue with big names but you pay for it... 6 Refectory Leeds Uni - not been much apart from Half Man Half Biscuit last year so hard to comment 7 The Fenton, Pack Horse, Primrose too small s hit holes Not one venue in South Leeds you notice!

Cross Keys up Morley(near Asda) seem to do a decent pub scene for bands,Duck n Drakes not bad for bands on a smaller scale.......Went down to The Eigar Music Studio last week,rehearsal and sound recording,plus a small staged area and a room that holds 1,000 people for raves and such,bar as well,i did'nt even know it was there,only found out about 2 months ago,my mate went to see about repairing one of there PA's.........its at the bottom of Dewsbury road,where the Craven Gate was (other end).........

Was talking to Graham the other week and The Smyths will never play Roscoe again as they don't have tribute bands on a Saturday. How stupid can ya get? They used to sell out Everytime.

Cockpit is the best venue to watch a band in Leeds by a country mile.
