Amber Run @ 02 Institute, 11th February, 2017

It has not been an easy year for Indie Pop Rock band Amber Run. While the specifics of the difficulties have not been shared, the band has repeatedly stated that they didn’t know if they would be around to complete this most recent full length album aptly titled For A Moment, I Was Lost. Overcoming […]

Chelsea Grin + Betraying the Martyrs + Void of Vision @ 02 Institute, 7th February, 2017

Void of Vision were first support for  Chelsea Grin at the 02 Institute this evening. Interviewing band members Jack and James before the show, albiet in a venue quite audibly progessing through soundchecks, I noticed that these are just your everyday early twenties lads. Down to earth and chatty, the guys even offered to assist me […]

Meshuggah + The Haunted @ 02 Institute, 13th January, 2017

Meshuggah have been on the bleeding edge of extreme metal for thirty years. I’ll let that sink in and then say it again, thirty (three-zero) years. They are one of those rare few bands where almost their entire back catalogue still sounds as fresh now as it did when it was released. When I heard […]

Clutch + Valient Thorr + Lionize @ O2 Institute, 16th December, 2016

In typical un-Christmas type weather, the fog outside is getting denser, making the distant glow of the festive lights in the city hard to see. It’s also unseasonably warm. Tonight Clutch are playing the Institute as part of their final dates of 2016. There’s no new album to promote, but they love playing live and […]

Super Furry Animals + Ffug @ 02 Institute, 10th December, 2016

It’s my final gig of 2016 and it seems poignant that it is a band that I have seen in each of the last three decades (that makes me seem really old, but I don’t feel it). I saw the Super Furry Animals on one of their very first tours back in 1996 somewhere in […]

Balaam and The Angel @ 02 Institute, 12th November, 2016

1986 was an important year for me. It was the time I started to attend gigs on a regular basis,to see bands that would remain with me throughout my life. It’s therefore fitting that many of those bands, thirty years on, are still touring. Some are still recording, such as The Mission having just released, […]

Delain + Evergrey + Kobra and the Lotus @ o2 Institute, 8th November, 2016

Tonight we see Delain headlining at the o2 Institute with support from Kobra and the Lotus followed by Evergrey. Each band has their own individual style, taste, sound and talent. The venue is fairly packed for the first support whilst still cold wet and miserable outside, but better than us hugging the wall waiting to […]

Beth Orton @ 02 Institute, 28th September 2016

Prior to Beth Orton taking to the stage, the lighting engineer is working hard to get the images displayed effectively on the oversized inflatable white balls that are the backdrop and demonstrate the quirkiness of what is to follow. This tour is in support of Beth Orton’s latest album, Kidsticks, which was released in May […]

Opening for Blossoms this evening were Play & Record Records Cabbage, a post-punk band originating from Manchester. Finding themselves producing a sound not too far thrown from Palma Violets, the band do well to entertain the ever growing crowd. Lead vocalist Lee Broadbent donning denim dungarees spends the majority of the set stalking along the […]
