I really enjoyed this.

In my early 20s I mainly went to biggish gigs but after a 15 year hiatus I started going to tons of small gigs in 2019 and loved it.

Mainly went to places in Liverpool and Manchester and had no idea how many venues each city offered and how many I'd never visited or if I was aware of them - appreciated.

This documentary makes me want to see gigs in the smaller towns/cities like Leicester, Halifax, Hull, etc - places I didn't know had venues with a bit of history behind them.
 
I like the bit in the documentary where the owner of the Trades in Hebden Bridge says the ticket collector is doing it for free - the community and love around these places is great.

I know we can't visit them really at the mo but fingers crossed over the next few months eh
