Living Colour + Jared James Nichols + Wayward Sons @ The Mill, 17 July 2019

New Yorkers Living Colour are marking their 30th anniversary by going on tour to play their revolutionary 1988 debut album ‘Vivid’ in full, an album that still stands the test of time and presents powerful messages mostly around themes of political nature about human rights. We were lucky enough to have them coming to Birmingham, […]

Mogwai + The Twilight Sad @ The Mill Digbeth, 23 November 2018

  It’s always a sign of a kind of maturity when a band like Mogwai get to have their own brand of beer. Like a performance from the band themselves, the drink is understated. Like one of their tunes it’s interesting, full of flavour and has quite a bite. Even the name, Mogwai Beer Satan, […]
