Little Man Tate + The Lines @ Birmingham Bar Academy – 8th September 2008

Coming from Wolverhampton I’d obviously heard of The Lines, but somehow I’d never actually got around to seeing them, not even by accident. Well, tonight put an end to that when I realised they were supporting Little Man Tate for their September ‘B Sides the A Sides’ tour dates. I have to say I was […]

UnderOath + Envy On The Coast + Oh Sleeper @ Academy 2 – 8th September 2008

First up tonight on an all American bill are Oh Sleeper from Texas, and although at first it seems few of the crowd know who they are, they quickly convert anyone who’s unsure. With ex Between The Buried and me guitarist Shane Blay on board, anyone would expect some impressive riffs, which the band readily […]

Voodoo Six @ Nuneaton Queens Hall – 7th September

It’s great to be back here at the Queens Hall – a venue that really has made a hugely positive impact on the Nuneaton music scene. Once a town content to only book tribute bands, the Queens Hall has seen some impressive names pass through its doors over the past couple of years, hardly surprising […]

Gomez + Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly @ Birmingham Academy – 3rd September 2008

Tonight is rather a special occasion here at the Academy, something of a celebration. Why so, you may ask…well, this Gomez tour is to mark the tenth anniversary of the release of their superb debut album, ‘Bring It On’, and album that won the 1998 Mercury Music Prize, along with huge critical acclaim. The record […]

Clutch @ The Barfly, Birmingham – 29th August 2008

A humid night in Birmingham, and a sold out crowd, means The Barfly is going to be a sweat-box – and I wasn’t wrong… Due to a last minute reviewer switcheroo, I turn up at the venue after Taint’s set. But having seen them before in this venue, again supporting Clutch, I seem to remember […]

Mindless Self Indulgence @ Birmingham Barfly – 23rd August 2008

In between Reading and Leeds Festival appearances, Mindless Self Indulgence turned up to Birmingham’s Barfly for an exclusive guest-only set for Kerrang Radio. MSI needed no support bands to get the young crowd warmed up as the place was brimming with excitement about their imminent performance. Instead Kerrang Radio’s Keith, presenter of Friday night’s ‘The […]

N*E*R*D @ Birmingham Academy – 19th August 2008

Stupendous is not a word I use every day. In fact, if I’m honest, I can’t ever remember using it. But damn it, I’m determined to throw it into the review of N*E*R*D‘s phenomenal gig at the Birmingham Academy last night. Not being a huge fan of N*E*R*D, and not expecting to write a review […]

V FESTIVAL @ Weston Park, Staffordshire – 16th-17th August 2008

This year’s widely anticipated V Festival came aggressively straight for us. With her guns blazing, she blew away anyone who was lucky enough to get in to the 60,000 capacity arena. The success of the weekend truly rested on one act and their extraordinary ability to put on the most intense and simply awesome performance […]

Escobar + The Joe Fox Band + Barnesy + The Abbots @ The Rainbow, Birmingham – 15th August 2008

I’m slightly ashamed to admit that this was my first gig at The Rainbow but it was a fine way to kick things off. The promoters here are promoting a good spread of local bands, have created a decent atmosphere and you can get a kebab at the back of the room – what more […]
