    Is the Adelphi currently shut for refurb too? How long for?

    I hope they dont make it all flash and twatty. I thought it was perfect just the way it was

    That's two summers in a row now. Maybe if Futuresound ever actually put their hands in their pocket and did things properly this wouldn't be an ongoing problem.

    What's the "essential maintenance work" that it needs?

    The Grove Cafe and Arcadia are also closed for refurbishment.

    Coincidence? Or something more sinister?

    They all receive a lot of custom from currently absent students...

    It could be any number of things but I suspect it's something to do with either the floor (they replaced it last summer) or the walls, which have had leaks.

    Yeah i did sort of think that myself but, as has been said, theres hardly any students around at this time so the financial loss wont be as great as closing at any other time. Im sure theyll all be ready for mid September

    Hadn't heard half those gigs were even happening, they should close more often, it'd help the promotion.

    Slint at the Irish Centre would be nice, I'm due pretty major surgery any time now and watching at the Cockpit wouldn't be feasible, somewhere with seating and a proper view could tempt me.

    If they are taking down the arch coverings then any budding photographers should get in there. The exposed arches look really cool.

    Slint moved to the Brude then.

    Good times.

    Think Arcadia is open again. They're doing a refurb on all those Market Town Tavern boozers, (the one in Guiseley was done a while back and I think that was the first), so they'll be getting round to the others in Leeds at some point, albeit East of Arcadia and Veritas might not be for ages.

    Is it just the summer? a lot of stuff on social media from people implying it maybe longer?!

    I don't want to go spreading rumours or anything but I know the doormen have been told they'll be no longer needed as have the bar staff, not just for the summer. My pal who works on the door got quite frustrated when I said it'll be fine. "YOU'RE HEARING IT FROM THE HORSES MOUTH MATE"

    Most of the bar staff were seasonal apart from a few legends. I think we'd all know if the management team had been let go. As for security, from my understanding they were agency/freelance with only a few employed directly.

    Sorry to squish squash your rumor. ps. Rumours was an amazing album: Now streaming in full on youtube
