    Do regular gig goers find that they have to go to manchester a lot because bands tend to leave out sheffield quite a bit.
    I'm deciding between Manchester and Sheffield at the moment, and gigs are quite important to me

    I've only had to travel to goto a gig once, and that was to see deerhoof, and it was only to leeds. (and they didn't even play a manc date)

    Loads of bands come to sheffield, esp. with the success of a certain local group.

    You don't say what type of music you're into but if it's indie/guitar bands/singer songwriters/ d'n'b then there is alot going on in the city.

    Have a look at leadmill, the plug city hall and the union website (fusion is a 600 capacity, the octagon is about 1500) those are the venues most bands doing national tours will visit, although there are more that have gigs from time to time. The boardwalk will probably become your favourite club, for local bands soundaloud could become your bible.

    oh and fuzz club at the union has some great bands and some crap ones, It's a class night though, so it doesn't really matter if the band are a bit rubbish every now and again.
