Not a thread about studying music at cambridge...or even their numerous (though by all accounts very good) choirs...

I just wanted to ask any students currently studying at Cambridge whether or not they have any live venues that well known or reasonably well known bands come and play at within the town??

I only ask cos i love listening to music and hope that big bands do gigs there so i can go to them...if i get the grades...

If they do come....how often do bands come there and any famous ones within the last coupla years???

Cheers

Yeah, at least one band I know of, A Perfect Circle are playing at the Corn Exchange soon. The Junction is meant to be another venue too...and Clare Cellars occasionally?

(I'm not a student at Cambridge, I just live here)

5 main venues:
Corn Exchange holds 1600 people, BRMC, A Perfect Circle, The Stranglers, Billy Bragg etc all playing there in the next few months. Sum 41, Less Than Jake etc have played there.
Junction holds about 800. Bands like Funeral for a Friend and [spunge] play there, but it's usually a club.
Then there's The Boat Race, Man on the Moon and Portland Arms (200, 120 and 90 respectively) for smaller bands.

PM me if you want more info.
