That Tramlines download has got a Neil McSweeney track on it (lead track from his brand new EP no less), so worth it for that along.

Sloucher have done a podcast of some of the bands playing this weekend (including the likes of The Payroll Union, Canyon Family and David J. Roch): http://sloucher.org/2013/07/16/podcast- ... more-14288

And they've done their own recommendations here: http://sloucher.org/2013/07/16/tramline ... endations/

The 'official' programme is out now too in all venues with supposedly full listings for everywhere.

WSL for pisco's and roaming son tonight. Tomorrow a bit vague; towing kiddiewinks, so probably the folk forest at lunchtime, then maybe catch a buskers bus or two, and some stuff in the peace gardens & cathedral.

And very good they were too! Mind you my ears are still ringing - it was a bit loud for that small room but what a show, even without two of their regular members! Hope to see them tomorrow as well :D

Me 'n' 'er (LongLegs) had a boss weekend in Sheffield and what a festival Tramlines is. You could put fifty people in a line, all of whom had spent the weekend at Tramlines and all of whom could've had a completely different festival experience. It really does match Glastonbury for the range of entertainment on offer. The street theatre alone makes it worth the trip...

This is a short round-up of our weekend.

Friday

We arrived at tea-time and headed down to The Royal Standard to catch a Wirral band called High Violet. We had put them on in Manchester earlier this year and promised them that we'd show our faces. Next was the long trek across town to Greystones and our first visit to the much-talked-about pub. It's an ace boozer and three-fifths of The Hosts treated us to a mixture of their own tunes and some rock 'n' roll covers.

Saturday

After a hearty (to put it mildly) breakfast near the guesthouse next door to SWFC, we put in a brief appearance at the main stage for Eliza & The Bear. Then the day got better when we got on a bus on Fitzwilliam Street and were serenaded by The Crookes for the 45 minute round trip. The Busker Bus really is an awesome idea. Next, it was off to the Academy 2 and our first taste of The Payroll Union, who we hope to bring to Manchester very soon. All members of The Hosts were present and correct this time for a rocking headline set, just a shame that it got cut short by somebody with no soul.

To finish the night, we headed to the Cathedral for a change of pace and caught the end of Sam Airey and the start of Nadine Shah in a packed venue, before retiring for the night.

Sunday

LongLegs wandered off to the main stage for a bit of Teleman, while I got into position at The Bowery for The Nose featuring Neil McSweeney. It was amusing watching a hundred jaws dropping, as Neil showed that he can rock as well as folk. David J Roch was up next and LongLegs was back in the room to catch his sumptuous set. That boy is a real talent. A hat-trick of Sheffield acts was completed by a young band called High Hazels, another tip for the top.

We had to have some main stage action in our weekend and Veronica Falls & The Crookes provided the soundtrack to Sunday afternoon. Shakespeares next for a bit of Wagon Wheel action, provided by Boss Caine and then The Listeners in the stable in the back yard.

Our weekend finished with a wimper at Penelopes (possibly featuring Rosie May) but we'll gloss over that and it certainly didn't spoil a beautiful weekend. Interestingly (or not), seven of the fifteen acts watched are from Sheffield and we certainly didn't set out with the intention of watching local acts. Obviously, a Sheffield festival will feature a lot of Sheffield acts, but it does show the strength of the scene in the city right now. It is beating up Manchester at the minute, that's for sure.

Special mentions to:

Musical Ruth - a singing nun on a moving piano
Granny Turismo - guys dressed as grannies on motorised shopping trolleys
Corner Cafe, Penistone Road - the belly buster is immense

A photo round-up will be up on our Facebook page tomorrow.

Nice one, Sheffield!

Had an absolute blast playing Tramlines this year...7 gigs in 3 days with both M&J & Roaming Son...thats gotta be some sort of record.
Didn't get chance to see many bands but caught both Downtown Roots & Mudcats Blues Trio at CADS, The Clench at henry's, Attempted some drunken rock'n'roll dancing with the missus to the Slingshots at Henry's too!
Next year i'm not gonna do as many gigs and try and get to see more bands.
:D

Friday/Saturday i actually had a pretty rubbish Tramlines in terms of getting to see many bands for numerous reasons. Sunday made up for it though.

First visit to CADS which was smart and looks a great place for summer gigs, not sure i'd fancy one of the winter dos there though!

Lack of stages on Barkers Pool/Fargate was a bit of a fail, as was the whole wristband confusion and seemingly even worse than ever information coming out from Tramlines themselves about line ups.

A lot of people thought Weston park was a wristband event!
CADS is ace isn;t it Craig, not bad in the winter, there's a downstairs stage where they usually have bands thats usually heated!
