We sent Arianna and Chris to find out what the opening night of the Bury Tomorrow tour would offer.   Having four acts each of whom are great bands in one evening is definitely not something that happens often, however tonight was one of those occasions. Kick started by Any Given Day, a metalcore band from Germany, […]

It has been a tremendous year for Liverpool indie rock band Circa Waves. The release of second album Different Creatures was quickly followed with a sold out headlining tour and a massive gig at Glastonbury.

Lewis Watson @ 02 Institute, 29th March, 2017

As music lovers most of us can think back to that group of artists or single artists that was constantly present through our years of maturation. They are the artists we had on repeat, through our first relationships and heartbreaks, through good days and bad, through every high and low. The artists that we played […]

Black Star Riders + Backyard Babies + Gun @ 02 Institute, 18th March, 2017

Birmingham Live’s Chris went to watch as Black Star Riders returned to Birmingham.  The queues are massive outside and partly because all three rooms are open tonight, but lets not think these fans are all for the other rooms as you would be wrong.

Monster Truck + The Picturebooks @ 02 Institute, 17th March, 2017

Our man Neale went out to see what the mighty Monster Truck would bring to a Friday night in Birmingham.

Crowbar @ 02 Institute, 16th March, 2017

Neale from the Birmingham Live team went to find out what Crowbar had to offer at the 02 Institute.  American sludge metal was a genre I’d never been aware of.  To me, the word ‘sludge’ implies slow and thick; if not dark. Well I couldn’t have called it any better; the riffs came in slow […]
