The Head and the Heart @ 02 Institute, 30th January, 2017

Nothing soothes the soul like an incredible show. All the music heads out there know this truth all too well. The dark lights, the thudding rhythm, the people around you emotionally pouring out their souls in fervent yelps. Nothing beats a well-timed show.

The Dillinger Escape Plan + Ho99o9 @ o2 Institute, Sunday 22nd January 2017

  “Don’t Cry Because It’s over; Smile Because It Happened” Sure, it’s a bit of a cheesy, overused quote, but I feel it’s appropriate when talking about the mighty Dillinger Escape Plan. 2016 was a year that was bittersweet for fans of New Jersey’s math-core pioneers, with the band releasing one of the most accomplished […]
