Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds @ Motorpoint Arena Nottingham, 28th September,2017

There isn’t any support on this tour that means an early start time, which isn’t popular with all but, considering Nick Cave has almost Messiah like status for many, he is forgiven. Close to the time advertised, haunting music plays throughout the venue for a few minutes before the lights are dimmed. A roar from […]

Parkway Drive + Heaven Shall Burn + Northlane + Carnifex @ Nottingham Rock City, 15th December 2014

Tonight Parkway Drive treated a sold out Rock City crowd to a show that surely demonstrates to all of the haters and critics that metalcore is far from dead. Their choice of guests for the evening was… interesting. Starting out as all good evenings should, with a healthy dose of Death Metal courtesy of Carnifex, […]
