Where do you go for gigs?  
I'm probably moving to the Northampton/MK area in June this year for work, and was wondering where you lot go to get your live-music fix? There's loads and loads on where I am now (the Black Country), but MK has always seemed a bit dead in this respect.

(I spent my teenage years in a village near Daventry and for gigs always had to travel to places like Birmingham or Nottingham - this was fine when I was at school and finished for the day before 4pm, but now I'm working it's probably a bit far, other than at weekends. The Roadmender in Northampton would have been great but it was shut down for renovations until just before I left for university, and I understand that the council have effectively shut it down again.)

For instance, looking at the Nine Inch Nails tour, there are three dates in this area (two in Birmingham and one in Wolverhampton), but London seems to be the easiest from MK. Same for the coming tour by The Wildhearts.

I personally travel mostly to London or Birmingham. It doesn't take very long by train.

The MK Bowl is slowly starting to get used more and more although that could be down to the fact that Wembley Stadium wasn't finished on time!
