I Like Trains, Post War Glamour Girls and Grant K Fennell talk to LMS about their favourite Live at Leeds 2012 venues.
Live at Leeds is a lot of things - but one of its most distinguishing characteristics is the way the festival gets its punters interacting with the musical geography of Leeds.
Anyone taking on the venue-hopping, brimming weekend can't help but come away with some sort of internal map of Leeds music (even if it comes at the price of seriously sore feet by the end of the Bank Holiday).
So, we here at LMS wanted to get a glimpse into how the Leeds bands playing the festival this year saw the city's venues, the music community's spatialities and Live at Leeds itself.
We asked a few of our favourite local acts on the bill to pick a Live at Leeds venue and meet us there. And here's the audiovisual results of that venue orientation, complete with music scene cameos and encounters with Leeds folk:
