Sheffield is a 20 minute train ride from Leeds. Ive lived most of my life in huddersfield, and was so fortunate to have leeds, bradford, manchester, sheffield, wakefield and even places like liverpool, hull, birmingham only a short train ride away.
I now live in Cornwall and not a lot of bands come this way, its lucky if they come past bristol, which is crazy considering how big the south west is, i dont complain, the petrol to come down this far probably would be more than what theyd make back. Its nice to see Charlie coming down. Saw futures last night down here which was great as wel.
Just think yourself lucky to live in Leeds, bands nearly always play within a 50 mile radius of you and if a band arent worth you travelling maybe an hour for to see them, why should they travel to you?
