The original Bradford Rio's was the main rock club in town. Up near the uni, it was a large venue that hosted a huge range of local and touring bands, and a weekly goth night in the second room. Eventually it closed, and for a while there was a similar Rio's venue in Leeds.
The venue was later used briefly by Gasworks (and us) toward the end of 2013, and is currently being converted into a complex of alternative venues centred around the new Tavern in the Town pub.
