Gigs Round Up: July
Here’s our round up of a few of the best live music and late night goings on in the city.
Off The Rails return with their annual Ibiza inspired event, serving as a thank you to their supporters for the last 12 months. Escape from the no doubt drab ‘summer weather’ that Sheffield is offering, and immerse yourself in beach themed inflatables to the musical backdrop of Ibiza nights. Free entry with a relaxed dress code – vest and board shorts anyone?
Following their 15 month hiatus, local lads Polkadodge are back with a bang on the back of the release of their new single ‘My Head’. Support comes in the form of a one night only return from indie boys The Fontaines, and Aurora Macabre.
Chesterfield alt-rockers Take The Seven head up the road to play Dronfield’s premier live music venue, following their recent sell out Leadmill show. A rare occasion for Dronfield’s rockers to come out of the woodwork and check out a local band going from strength to strength.
Ryan Taylor’s musical collective showcase their neo-soul jazz expertise in the form of a number of soulful tunes. The band aim to excite the eardrums of those enjoying the outdoor venue throughout the Sunday afternoon.
Across both of their rooms, CODE deliver cutting-edge bass music, contributing to two huge parties for their Tramlines events. Arundel’s venue invites DJs such as Jasper James and Skream, among many others.
Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the release of their Radiohead’s OK Computer reworking (Radiodread), Easy Star All-Stars return to Europe for a string of shows and festival appearances. Putting their own twist on the songs of legendary acts across various genres, as well as penning some original numbers, the band have gained a dedicated worldwide following which is still growing.
Ipswich grunge revivalists Basement headline the Ballroom Stage on Saturday, atop of an eclectic line-up throughout the day. A range of metal, alt-rock and noise rock is topped off by ArcTanGent DJs. One for the moshers!
In anticipation of their new release ‘Paranormal Romance’, post-punk outfit, and self-professed party band make their way down from Leeds for their return to the Picture House Social. Brighton’s Porridge Radio and Sheffield’s own Ganglions provide apt support.
With their hard-hitting modern twist on classic rock, Baranovich smash out anthemic choruses and catchy in your face riffs. The night will be opened by Tapt, providing a number of indie and rock covers, and Retreat Regroup – local lads delivering a blend of post rock, punk and indie.
