Here is the gig guide, how does it work? Simply scroll through the alphabetical order of venues, find ones with that host genres you enjoy, and click on the venue name to be taken to where they list their gigs.
The list is coloured by how well they run their venues live music.
Purple = Constantly up to date
Green = Updates Monthly, venues that update month (sometimes leading to a week or two of no gig listings)
Orange = Updates Weekly/Week Of
Red = Terrible at any kind of promotion
The genres are simple and more to give an idea. If a venue has a genre that will include all the subgenres e.g Jazz also includes Alternative/Indie/Contemporary/Experimental etc. And when there is a listing like Punk Rock and Metal it can be obvious that they will host Hardcore music as well. There are more venues than anyone may realise, discover them all below!
