March is about the time in the calendar when gigs come thick and fast, bands get out on the road and there isn’t a better month to find your next favourite band. We’ll be attending a huge amount of shows this month in Leeds and the surrounding areas and here are my big gig tips if you’re stuck for something to do this March!
THURSDAY 1ST MARCH – NO HOT ASHES – LENDING ROOM
FRIDAY 2ND MARCH – NORTHERN COMFORT – WARDROBE
SATURDAY 3RD MARCH – WATERPARKS + DEAD! – STYLUS
Come and say hey this Saturday at one of the most exciting pop punk shows Leeds has seen so far this year. Dead! are one of the hottest bands in the UK right now and with their debut album release on the horizon, expect them to be pulling out all the stops to show up US visitors Waterparks.
SUNDAY 4TH MARCH – CATHOLIC ACTION – FULFORD ARMS (YORK)
MONDAY 5TH MARCH – HERE LIES MAN – BRUDENELL SOCIAL CLUB
TUESDAY 6TH MARCH – FICKLE FRIENDS + CASSIA – FIBBERS (YORK)
WEDNESDAY 7TH MARCH – LELO – HYDE PARK BOOK CLUB
THURSDAY 8TH MARCH – DEEP.SLEEP – DUSK (YORK)
Whilst York doesn’t often get many touring bands come through the city, in recent times some of the bands who have had great festival seasons in 2017, have made trips to The Crescent or Dusk. On 8th March, Geordie indie rockers Deep.Sleep bring their energy filled set to York for what is going to be a very fun, very sweaty show supporting These Jaded Streets. Further support comes from two of our favourite York bands, Dvsk and Peach!

FRIDAY 23RD MARCH – CORELLA – FULFORD ARMS (YORK)
We’ve been seriously looking forward to this one for some time. Corella were one of our favourite live bands in 2017 and we caught them a few times when they made the trip to York. They recently dropped new single Caught Up which we just loved and cannot wait to witness their return to York at the end of the month. If you see one show this month, make it this one, we promise it will not disappoint!
SATURDAY 24TH MARCH – THE ELEPHANT TREES – HEADROW HOUSE
THURSDAY 29TH MARCH – BLACKWATERS + HELLO OPERATOR – CRESCENT (YORK)
