    We are Black Moon Rising...

    We are looking to get gigging in Leeds a bit, I work in Leeds and prob moving close in the new year, just don't seem to be able to get contacts and such to line up gigs. I've messeged a few venues but I know how many messeges they can get!

    so if anyone has any venue suggestions or other like minded local bands that want to do some gig swapping or something then please let me know.

    cheers!!


    spamming thing won't let me post myspace...

    but it's pretty much the normal myspace with /blackmoonrisinguk at end

    Hi there

    A great venue without ripping off customers is Beaverworks. Mostly does club nights but I have seen bands there before. The actual staging area really needs to be seen (there are massive prop fans sourced from a Leeds Grand Production). As for a perfect sound, well speak with the manager, Graham, as he will be more than happy to discuss it with you. A very nice fellow.

    Here is the link

    Or you might phone Graham direct on 07943 814078

    Good luck my friend.

    (you might have to 'zoom in' to see those stage props on the site.

    There is also 'The Primrose'. Walking distance from Hyde Park and known for the 'Eavy Stuff. The bosses have been there for over a deacade and they do promote bands. I must advise you though; Do not engage in the local cocktail of Bacardi Breezers mixed with a bottle Gold Label. My mind has never been the same since...

    The Primrose is closed, and has been for a long time.

    Get out to gigs. See what kind of gigs you want, and who with. If you see a band you like, speak to em. Get a show together.
    And do it yourself. Book out a venue/room. Make the night your own, and you'll have a better chance of making money.
