Living in Sheffield gives you unrivalled access to the full spectrum of cultural opportunities,
in venues ranging from the famous Crucible to tiny pubs to the iconic Leadmill.
Mrs RM hadn’t been to a gig at the Leadmill since we moved, and it was too long to wait for Tommy Cannon, so I offered her an evening of
metalcore the Ligeti Quartet playing Anna Meredith. Good.
Seated. Even better.
With beer. Deal.
Of course, a Pub Man had to take days off the beer, which is where undrinkable low alcohol beer comes in.
At least, that’s Mrs RM’s take. And she positively smirked at my Northern Monk while necking her Lost Industry.
But it was OK. No, it really was. Of course, ALL beer out of a can (apart from Samlesbury Bass) is to be scorned, but it did the trick. Not quite as good as Jever Fun, but then the Germans know how to do low/no alcohol beer.
The Ligeti Quartet (Pronounced “ligerty”) more than did the trick, a run through of national treasure Anna Meredith’s big hits including the one about the MRI machine and this one;
Live music in all its forms; as good in 2023 as it’s ever been.
