Leeds newest alternative nightclub, thesubculture, lives in the Merrion Centre in the shell of the old Bassment nighclub. We opened mid September 2006 with the remit of providing a home for many of the nights left in limbo by the closure of Bar Phono and the Bassment at xmas 2005 and other new nights missing from the Leeds alternative scene.
From Bar Phono we have Friday Flock, Raw Nerve, Rock Soc and 2 Smoking Barrels, Sunday Club and Frankie. From the Bassment we have Gigantic, Hospital Radio and Juvenile Hall. Add to this new nights such as Substance, Idiotech, Loose Tooth, Trash Alley and Primitive and you have a pretty comprehensive selection of alternative music.
