Indoor Pets @ The Flapper, 15th April 2019

Let me pitch you a paragraph. Formerly Get Inuit, the recently re-named Indoor Pets are currently touring the UK in support of their debut album ‘Be Content’ and on Monday evening found themselves at the soon to be demolished The Flapper in Birmingham. Opening the show were Brighton three-piece Gender Roles, who’s brand of fuzzy […]

DMA’s @ o2 Academy, 4th April 2019

They’ve been dubbed by some as Australia’s answer to Oasis but fobbing DMA’s off as Gallagher copycats would be far from fair. Britpop throwbacks they may be, but these boys have certainly been offering something unique since capturing the hearts of young indie fans several years back. Last night they were back in Birmingham at the […]

Drake @ Resorts World Arena, 26 March 2019

A Ferrari flying high above the crowd. Fireworks displays befitting a bonfire night. A basketball shootout competition offering the chance to win £20,000. It doesn’t particularly sound like your typical gig, but live music is changed and Drake is its innovator, transforming his shows into an experience to remember for his army of devoted fans. […]

Corduroy @ Hare and Hounds, 21st March 2019

Back in 1995 when most people still looked at you with a blank expression on their face when you mentioned music festivals, back when the Reading Festival was still awash with big name acts and dogs on ropes were only just dropping out of the scene, that was the last time that I saw Corduroy. […]

Blood Youth @ Mama Roux’s – 7th March 2019

With the smell of nearby Digbeth Dining Club creeping in through the doors, Birmingham based openers Overthrone took to the stage in an already packed Mama Roux’s. For a local support, the band seemed like seasoned professionals and held the attention of all in attendance.  The first of three touring supports, Lotus Eater are the […]

Troye Sivan @ o2 Academy, 26th February 2019

The o2 Academy swirled in neon colours and glitter face paint, the smell of teen spirit intermixing with the bubbling chatter of Troye Sivan fans. The Australian dance pop heartthrob has evolved from Youtube covers to sold out shows.   He has graced the stage with some of the largest pop acts including Taylor Swift […]

Steely Dan @ Resort Worlds Arena, 23 February 2019

The newly renamed (again) NEC hosts the legendary Steely Dan this evening, one of a handful of UK shows. I was unsure of demand for this show, given the eye-watering ticket prices, but the queue to get into the venue suggests it’s close to sell-out. Of course, the security screening adds to the delays and […]

Hippo Campus @ o2 Institute,18 February 2019

Since I last saw Hippo Campus play in Birmingham (supporting Modest Mouse in 2015), they have not returned to Birmingham, despite playing in England on a number of occasions over the last few years.  In my review  I knew this band was destined for success.  It is fitting therefore that their triumphant return to Birmingham […]

The Lemonheads + Heyrocco @ Academy 2, 15th February 2019

Though this evening’s venue has long since been a fixture along the Bristol Road, it has never quite surpassed the previous incarnation of the Academy situated in the vicinity of the Dale End part of the city, just a short distance across from its current residence. When filled to the brim, any endeavour, be it […]

The Murder Capital + The Cosmics + Bad Girlfriend @ Sunflower Lounge, 5th February 2019

The late pick-up on this gig combined with a very busy weekend meant that I was unprepared and unresearched for the bill this evening.  All I knew was that the one track on a streaming service that I found from The Murder Capital would be all I had to base my anticipation on.  However, thanks […]
