Larkin Poe + Raevennan Husbandes @ Hare and Hounds, 15th April 2015

Almost a year on from unveiling their new sound, it was time to once again catch up with a Larkin Poe live show to check out the continual evolution of the talented Lovell siblings’ career odyssey. The gradual transformation from harmonious roots traditionalists to full blown ‘swampadelic ‘ southern rock has reached a point of […]

Simple Minds @ o2 Academy, 11th April 2015

Of all the bands that emerged from the punk/new wave scene of the late 1970’s, Simple Minds’ career trajectory has to be the most interesting. Most bands from that time imploded or retained a cult following, whereas Simple Minds outgrew their small Glasgow venues and became an internationally well respected rock band, and then came […]

Suburban Legends + MC Lars + The Bottom Line @ The Rainbow, 9th April 2015

The first band on at The Rainbow, Birmingham, was The Bottom Line. When this three piece UK band stepped onto the stage I immediately thought “pop-punk” and I was spot on. If Blink 182 and New Found Glory ever had a love child, The Bottom Line would be it! Their sound is the definition of […]

Pierce The Veil + Sleeping With Sirens + Issues @ o2 Academy, 8th April 2015

Tonight sees The World Tour, sponsored by Rockstar Energy Drink, in Birmingham. With support coming from Issues and the remainder of the bill being a co-headline split between Pierce The Veil and Sleeping With Sirens, the sold out crowd are in for a treat. Playing hits from their latest release, Stingray Affliction, Issues are full […]

Ghostpoet + Palace @ Hare and Hounds, 8th April 2015

It was buzzing on the ground floor bar of the Hare and Hounds in Kings Heath for Ghostpoet’s (aka Coventry rapper/MC Obaro Ejimiwe) sell out show, and already the atmosphere felt good. First on the bill tonight are support act Palace, a four piece from London with a bluesy alt-rock sound. They do a great […]

ZOAX + Dead! @ Alfie Birds, 7th April 2015

Before this evening and having seen ZOAX tear up some decent size rooms during various support slots I’d completely assumed that they would be playing Alfie Birds larger room, the Oobleck for their first headline tour. I was pretty surprised to find the Oobleck doors locked and realize that we’d be in the much smaller, […]

Nicki Minaj + Trey Songz @ Barclaycard Arena, 3rd April 2015

The arrival of tonight’s headliner is imminent. We know this of course, not as a result of any deferential announcement made across the public address system, but rather, as a result of the thunderous shock wave of bass abruptly erupts from the stage, invading every inch of the vast Birmingham venue, shaking the stragglers from […]

Charli XCX + CuckooLander @ The Library, 2nd April 2015

I bought tickets for Charli XCX many months ago, for me, my husband and my step-daughters (15). They’re old enough now to go to proper gigs, but by today’s rules they need us there to get in, so Warren and I take up residence tucked away at the back whilst they rush to get as […]

Ben Poole @ The Musician, Leicester, 29th March 2015

There are a select few performers who make my heart glad when they pick up a guitar. Ben Poole is one of those. Annoyingly natural in his talent, as well as being unfeasibly young for what he has accomplished, he was brought up on a diet of Blues and Rock greats by his folks and […]

Catfish and the Bottlemen @ The Institute, 28th March 2015

I have not looked forward to a gig as much as this for twenty years (since Radiohead in 1994 at the Wulfrun Hall).  Catfish lead singer Van McCann was still in nappies then, as is most of the audience at The Institute tonight or not even born in a lot of cases.  It makes me […]
