Tremonti + The Fallen State @ o2 Institute, 30 June 2018

Acting as support across the whole of this UK tour, The Fallen State had a large crowd to play to on Friday evening at the O2 Institute in Birmingham. And boy did they grasp it with both hands. Alongside some fantastic songs, the band certainly had the performance nailed down and led without caution at […]

Starcrawler + The Cosmics @ o2 Academy, 21 June 2018

Opening Thursday’s show were Birmingham’s The Cosmics, a garage punk band that have been making noise across the city for a while. Acting as a great platform for the band to reach some new fans, it’s a shame that the venue took so long to fill up, presumably due to the behemoth queue that Billy […]

Lenny Kravitz @ Arena Birmingham 20 June, 2018

The venue has been made into a more intimate affair for tonight’s performance by moving the stage far forward which allows Lenny Kravitz to maximise arena sound and stage size whilst maintaining the closeness to the audience; it is this combination that pays off particularly at the end of the show. Needless to say, Lenny’s […]

Waxahatchee @Hare and Hounds, 15th June 2018

As we walk into the main room at the Hare and Hounds tonight, the opening song by Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield is being played; acoustic, solo, stark and heartfelt, and the striking thing is that the audience is silent and transfixed. By silent I mean…. totally silent. Pin dropped clatteringly loud silent. My companion for the […]

NOFX @ o2 Institute, 14 June 2018

During the walk into Digbeth this evening, it seemed The Kerryman had changed from an Irish pub to a punk bar with punters donning leather jackets and multi coloured Mohicans. The reason for this is that NOFX were in town at the O2 Institute as part of their European tour. First up at the show […]

Gary Barlow @ Symphony Hall, 14 June 2018

“Tonight we’ve gotta live for these days!” An evening with Gary Barlow at the Birmingham Symphony Hall definitely sounds like “These Days.” A brave man called the show a “Theatre show” as it was quickly shattered by the constant onslaught of confetti cannons. Little was left to the imagination as the set list was posted […]

Brother Firetribe @ Actress and Bishop 12 June, 2018

My first time in the Actress & Bishop to find there is a downstairs small stage and upstairs room. The pub itself looks great downstairs and as the weather is nice we have a crowd seated outside. The room upstairs is fairly dark, the stage setting is in a corner placement with limited lighting facing […]

Jack Carty + Maz O’Connor @ The Kitchen Garden Café, 7th June 2018

Nestled in amongst the crowded shopfronts along Kings Heath’s York Road, you will happen upon an unassuming gated alleyway that by day, leads to a quaint cafe that offers any visitor a welcome sanctuary from the reliably bustling high street. By night, the location is turned into a one of the finest endeavours the city […]

The Milk @ Mama Roux’s, 7th June 2018

For many bands a tour acts as promotion for a new record, however for The Milk whose latest tour rolled into Mama Roux’s on Friday evening, the tour was simply a road test to see which songs would be recorded and make it onto the bands third record. After rising to prominence with their debut […]
