LIVE MUSIC/FILMS/DJS. IT'S TRAMLINES AT THE SHOWROOM!
Tramlines is back with easily one of the biggest and best line-ups Sheffield has ever seen. The Charlatans, Wu-Tang Clan, The Buzzcocks plus countless others will be gracing the stages and venues of the city. The Showroom is delighted to announce our Tramlines schedule, which features young, upcoming artists alongside some classic music films . Enjoy a burger from our specialty BBQ, expertly prepared by the café bar staff. Friday kicks things off with three live indie acts in the Showroom bar, Saturday features live music all day and our very own Simon's Hip Hop Hooray all night, the perfect start to a weekend of hip-hop at the Ponderosa.
We couldn't do Tramlines without showing some music films, and we've got three of the best music documentaries ever made for those who want to escape the crowds and put their feet up (but not on the seats, please). Stones in the Park and Woodstock capture 60's spirit, when Jagger and Jimi ruled the stage and revolution was in the air. The Last Waltz, directed by Martin Scorsese and featuring performances from Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Eric Clapton amongst others, tells the story of the seminal final concert by rockers The Band.

Bayonet are best mates, Fifa fanatics and indie rockers from Sheffield who sound like a younger brother of The 1975 paraphrasing The Kooks in a warehouse full of Telecasters. Their debut EP titled "Elations" is out soon on The Animal Farm.
CROWS are an indie-punk band from Sheffield. They play hard-hitting, emotion driven music with all the melodic content of pop and indie married with the raw energy of punk and emo.

In 1969, 500,000 people descended on a small patch of field in a little-known town in upstate New York called Woodstock.
