Leicester but no Birmingham..... What is up with bands these days missing out Birmingham. I think it may be more to do with the lack of venues in Birmingham rather than a slate at the bands though. Institute is pretty much it unless you are big enough for NIA or small enough to play the Flapper.
You're forgetting the 3 different sides rooms inside the o2 Academy, The Asylum and the LG Arena. There are plenty venues in Birmingham bands just always seem to miss it out nowadays.
