Kate Nash – 12/02/2017

When hearing the name Kate Nash most people think of her as the one-hit-wonder of the Lily Allen-esque tune ‘Foundations’. However, her ability as an artist goes far beyond just being able to produce a quirky tune with a lot of swearing, and it looks as if she’s set to come back with a bang. …Read More

JAWS + Cosmo Pyke + The Lizard- 02/12/16

Rating: After the success of their first LP ‘Be Slowly’ in 2014 the release of ‘Simplicity’ had been long awaited on the indie scene. So much so that you could smell the anticipation on the sweaty kids that piled into Birmingham’s Rainbow Warehouse to get an earful of the new album live in their hometown …Read More

When I heard that JB had added an extra date for a concert in Birmingham, I took it as a sign. For a second, I could actually imagine myself being a part of the audience, singing and dancing to his songs. The tickets had started running low and I had to decide whether I should …Read More

Benjamin Francis Leftwich – 04/05/2016

I’ll begin by admitting that my principal reason for covering Benjamin Francis Leftwich’s (oh wow that’s going to be a mouthful) gig was entirely down to learning we were from the same home town, attending schools just down the road from one another. Imagine my shock when listening to BFL before the show that he …Read More

David Gilmour – 24/04/2016

“If Queen and the Who are Rock Operas, then Gilmour and Pink Floyd are Rock Symphonies…” Going into this I should be clear that I have two major biases towards David Gilmour’s performance in the Royal Albert Hall. The first is that the tickets were a gift as I was there as a charity spokesperson for …Read More

Adele – 30/3/16

  Rating: The mesmerising moment when Adele rose up in the centre of the arena completely isolated, captivating the audience completely with her breath-taking voice, serves to highlight her standing as one of the greatest singers of the current age. The Arena Tour was labelled ‘An Evening with Adele’ and even from the highest seats …Read More

NME Awards Tour – Drenge + Bloc Party – 12/2/16

  The annual NME tour always manages to get a pretty solid line up which you would probably never get to see except maybe in a festival spread around different stages. Previous years include bands like Django Django, Palma Violets and Temples, and this year certainly doesn’t disappoint. The great line up, combined with a …Read More
