Trivium + Code Orange + Power Trip @ 02 Academy, 17 April 2018

First up tonight, Dallas Thrashers Power Trip. Jumping straight into their latest album material ‘Soul Sacrifice’, from the outstanding ‘Nightmare Logic’ (2017), the band start with a loud crushing static sound which builds up hype in the rowdy main room. The showy hardcore riffs kick in, before the fast and ferocious vocals from Riley; instant […]

Love from Stourbridge @ O2 Academy, 14th April 2018

Tonight’s sold out show is a dual headliner featuring The Wonder Stuff and Ned’s Atomic Dustbin both of which made a massive stir on the indie alternative scene back in the late 80s and early 90s. Having not seen either of them play since then, standing in the queue it felt like a trip down […]

George Ezra + Lily Moore @ o2 Academy, 4 April 2018

Sunflower Bean @ Hare and Hounds, 27th March 2018

Described in various outlets, both of quality writing and of lazy journalistic tendencies, Brooklyn, Noo Yawwwk band Sunflower Bean are constantly compared to Rumours-era Fleetwood Mac. They are described as a band that have a CV of a rock band that do not actually rock. As a band that play a mix of grunge and […]

Tom Walker @ o2 Institute 23 March, 2018

It’s been thirteen and a-bit months since I last watched Tom Walker live, then he was playing at the lovely but very intimate Sunflower Lounge. A lot can happen in thirteen months and this is definitely the case for Tom, the most noteworthy of things being his latest single Leave a Light on, racking up […]
