Social Sheffield Live Music Editor, Bea Duncan, picks the top three gigs coming to Sheffield, Mon. 30 Feb – Sun. 5 Mar. 2017.
1. – Sobriquet // Mon. 27 Feb. // West Street Live – – (£0)
Shake off those Monday blues by seeing a band straight out of the University of Sheffield. Sobriquet have been described as ‘Norma Jean meets My Chemical Romance’. While they only have a few singles out, their output gives a clear indication of what is to come, that is to say, dynamic and tireless music with post-hardcore inspiration. Their live performances are no different, overflowing with energy and sound. Get down to West Street Live for a gig you’re unlikely to forget in a while.
For fans of: Glassjaw, At The Drive In, Finch
Songs to listen to: Birds of Prey, Grief Seed, What Have You Done To Me
Hear a sample: Sobriquet ‘Birds of Prey’
2. – VANT // Thurs. 2 March // Plug – – (£11)
If you’re on the hunt for a band capable of pulling together addictive tracks with politically-charged messages, then VANT is the one for you. The London based indie rock quartet make passionate music with well crafted guitar riffs and often thought-provoking lyrics. Their debut album was released only a few weeks ago, meaning this performance is likely to be fresh and spirited. They’re playing Plug and it’s sure to be a big one.
For fans of: Palma Violets, The Bohicas, High Tyde
Songs to listen to: Peace & Love, Do You Know Me, Parking Lot
Hear a sample: VANT ‘Do You Know Me’
3. – The Sherlocks // Fri. 3 March // Sheffield University – – (£6)
The Sherlocks are one of South Yorkshire’s very own, and have been slowly building up their name for a few years now. Having been signed to Infectious Music in the last few weeks of 2016, they’re now raring to go and take the indie rock world by storm. While they’re still yet to release an album, their singles have been infectious and high energy-perfect for a live environment. Their gig at Sheffield Student’s Union is just the ticket for an end of week sing-a-long.
For fans of: The Amazons, Clean Cut Kid, The Magic Gang
Songs to listen to: Was It Really Worth It?, Live for the Moment, Last Night
Hear a sample: The Sherlocks ‘Was It Really Worth It?”
