We Are the In Crowd – Weird Kids

[9/10] We Are The In Crowd released their debut album a whole 3 years ago, so their fans have had a long wait for the second album, ‘Weird Kids’. Having toured with the likes of All Time Low and Yellowcard, as well as playing the main stage at Reading and Leeds festival, We Are The …Read More

2014 Kerrang Tour: Limp Bizkit + Crossfaith – 13/02/14

Expectations were high tonight due to the impressive line ups of the Kerrang Tour in previous years, combined with tonight being the first Birmingham show Limp Bizkit have played since reforming in 2009. Kicking off the show was Baby Godzilla [2] with what could only be described as noise. While they had a lot of …Read More

Atilla – About That Life

[9/10] On the track ‘Leave A Message..’ you hear the bands general manager leaving a message on the frontman Fronz’s phone saying ‘You said you were going to mellow out on this record and all you’re doing is getting more offensive’. This statement is totally correct for this record; it is not for the easily …Read More

Reel Big Fish + Less Than Jake – 08/02/14

When booking a ska-punk gig, it would be impossible to beat the combination of Reel Big Fish and Less Than Jake. However kicking off the gig was Ryland Steen [4/10], better known for being the drummer of Reel Big Fish, with his acoustic guitar. His slow, emotional songs seemed slightly out of place on a …Read More

Slaves + PUP + Female Smell – 09/02/14

First up at the Flapper were local noise-punks Female Smell [3/10] – with an actual female bassist in the band, no less. Sadly, she, the guitarist and the phenomenal drummer were the best thing about this band, demonstrating excellent technical abilities and some damn sweet riffs. Though Female Smell had the potential to be a …Read More

We Are The In Crowd + Neck Deep – 06/02/14

On a cold horrible February night in Birmingham, New Yorkers We Are The In Crowd bought the warmth and fun with them. Kicking off the gig was Neck Deep [8/10] playing their first ever Birmingham show. With a setlist that mixed songs from their previous EPs with their new album really stole the show. Playing …Read More

Newton Faulkner + Sam Brookes – 20/02/14

I’d never seen Newton Faulkner before, but I was not disappointed. The venue filled up quickly and I could feel the anticipation in the audience as we waited for a sign of movement. An hour after the doors opened, Sam Brookes [6/10] walked on stage and started his acoustic set.  His sweet voice managed to get …Read More

Shy Nature + The Creases – 12/02/14

The venue was quite quiet: not many people would have heard about this gig. The Creases [5/10] came onstage when there were only a few people scattered sitting around the edges of the small venue. Nonetheless, they didn’t let this get to them and only slightly nervously played through their heavily sixties sounding set list. …Read More

Live & Demo Review: James Bay – 23/02/14

A typical Sunday evening of music at the Yardbird is generally pretty chilled affair. Tonight was completely different; we were treated to five performances at my favourite venue – with low red lighting, fairy lights and fittingly a number of birdcages hanging from the ceiling, you really can’t go wrong. From the pre-gig tweets, it …Read More
