The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Sheffield's legendary indie-pop club night Offbeat returns – and it's going online every Friday night.

Fans of Offbeat can now relive their fond memories of shuffling and shoegazing around the dance floor in Sheffield Students' Union's Raynor Lounge to the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Le Tigre, Camera Obscura, and Long Blondes – from the comfort of their own home! And for the uninitiated, now is your chance to experience your first taste of the "indie heaven" that is Offbeat.

DJ Chris Stride will be playing classic and current leftfield indie tunes on Friday nights "for as long as we are trapped indoors."

Tune in one Mixlr on Fridays 9:30pm-12:30am.

And if you want to get your requests in early, head to the Facebook group.
