The Streets

Sat. 22 January 2022

O2 Academy Sheffield

Rap with a British accent that talked about UK-centric issues was a sharp contrast to the American dominated landscape when Mike Skinner released Original Pirate Material in 2002. He's since become one of leading voices in UK music and culture.

Brockhampton

The Leadmill

Cult post-punk outfit Half Man Half Biscuit have been writing their own brand of surrealist, sarcastic, sardonic rock songs since 1984, mixing humour and bleakness in equal measure.
