The Divine Comedy + Man and the Echo @ O2 Institute, 11th October 2019

There’s a hint at the kind of show to expect from The Divine Comedy tonight when the stage is decked out with office furniture ahead of their performance. Even down to the smallest details such as the drinks poured into office mugs and the setlists attached to clipboards, there’s a sense that Neil Hannon and […]

Midge Ure @ Birmingham Town Hall, 7 October 2019

1980 turned out to be a pivotal year for pop music in the UK, as the punk scene faded and the focus started to shift more towards synth-led pop. For Midge Ure, it would mark the year that he would find success initially as a member of Visage before becoming the new frontman of Ultravox, […]

Leann Rimes @ Symphony Hall, Birmingham – Saturday 14th September 2013

I can see why the gig was at Symphony Hall tonight as Leann Rimes, who’s released 14 albums and sold 37 million records, is a legend. But tonight (as Leann put it) we were in her “front room.” And being as we were in the 31 year old’s front room, we were very reserved and […]

Lamb of God @ Wulfrun Hall, Wolverhampton – Tuesday 13th August 2013

It’s the middle of the British Summer, so it’s cool with spots of rain and a sky full of black clouds. It could be a sign of more inclement weather or a warning that Lamb of God are playing Wolverhampton tonight. Arriving late, I miss all bar the last song of tonight’s support, Sylosis, but […]

Counting Crows @ O2 Academy, Birmingham – Friday 19th April 2013

It is odd that throughout 1993 and ’94 Counting Crows’ debut album was never off my stereo, only for circumstances to intervene, and even hearing Duritz’s voice would bring back painful memories… “3500 miles away and what would you change if you could?” still echoing in my ears. For almost fifteen years I chose not […]

Emmure + Chelsea Grin + Attila + Obey The Brave @ Birmingham Academy 2 – 8th April 2013

Tonight’s gig is headlined by New York deathcore merchants, Emmure, who are back in Birmingham a few short months after opening for Parkway Drive at The Ballroom. Academy 2 is packed out with […]

Biffy Clyro + City & Colour – Birmingham LG Arena – 21st March 2013

It’s taken 18 years but it seems like Biffy Clyro are in danger of becoming the biggest rock band in the UK any day now. With a number one album in the bag, Ayrshire’s finest arrive in Birmingham for the second night of their first arena-filling tour and there is a definite sense of occasion […]

The Sword + Lonely Kamel @ Wolverhampton Slade Rooms – 6th January 2013

After a quiet period for gigs over Christmas and New Year, it’s good blow those cobwebs away and to to start the 2013 gig season off with something loud, epic and nonsense-free. And tonight, Wolverhampton gets not one, but two bands who rise to the occasionally perfectly. Tonight’s main support, Lonely Kamel, are playing their […]

ATP Curated By The National – Pontins, Camber Sands – 8th/9th December 2012

All Tomorrow’s Parties is not your typical music festival. No muddy fields, no stupid hats (well, maybe a couple) and no particularly well-known headliners. Plus, no worries about rain. ATP is back at its spiritual home of Pontins (yes, that Pontins!) in Camber Sands on England’s south coast, which means all the artists will be […]

Kathleen Edwards + Peter Bruntnell @ Bush Hall, London – 6th December 2012

Canadian singer/songwriter Kathleen Edwards has slowly but surely been building a reputation as one of the most consistently impressive artists of the past decade, helped along nicely by last year’s Bon Iver-produced Voyageur album, and she’s over on our shores for three stripped back shows, concluding with an appearance at All Tomorrow’s Parties, curated by […]
