Venue Talk: Doe on Brudenell Social Club, Leeds.

I spoke to the indie trio Doe about their favourite live venue, which is Leeds’ Brudenell Social Club. The band are building up to the release of their second album ‘Grow Into It’ on the 28th September. Check out their latest single ‘Labour Like I Do’ below, and read what they had to say about the social club.

“After careful consideration, Brudenell Social Club in Leeds.”

“Leeds is generally a lovely place to play with a great music scene (special s/o to also excellent Wharf Chambers), so the audience is always really mixed and responsive. The sound at Brudenell is always good, the toilets are clean (extremely important) and there’s loads of space to chill / chat / hang out so you’re not cooped up in one intense gig space.”

Have you ever played there?

“Yes we’ve played there a few times on tour and are playing there again in October with Speedy Ortiz.”

Who else have you seen there?

“Only really the other bands we’ve played with because we’re not from Leeds, but they were all GREAT.”

Brudenell Facts:

  • Upcoming shows at the Brudenell include Albert Hammond Jr, Mitski and Teleman.
  • The Social club was established December 8th, 1913
  • Kaiser Chiefs, Franz Ferdinand, The Cribs, Four Tet and The Fall have all played at the Social Club.
  • It is a community ‘non profitmaking’ venue, that holds charitable status.
