Dandy Warhols 25th Anniversary Tour.

One thing for certain is The Dandy Warhols are a tight unit, they play and deliver in their own way, certainly tonight’s show was full of nostalgia for those who have avidly supported them over the years, what triumphed in the depth of albums and singles, was not matched by the performance.

The Faim – Birmingham o2 Academy3, 06.02.19

“We’re saints of the sinners, and we’re coming for you” With their bop-filled tunes and memorable lyrics, Australian band The Faim brought a new lease of life to Birmingham’s o2 Academy3, with Halflives and Chapel as their touring support. The 250-cap room had pretty much filled out by the time Halflives had entered the stage, and just as well as this was not a set to be missed. As each… Keep Reading

Don Broco, Neck Deep And Issues Storm Victoria Warehouse.

Don Broco plus very special guests play two nights at Victoria Warehouse. Don Broco, along with Welsh pop-punkers, Neck Deep, and Atlanta-based band, Issues, play two sold out nights in Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse. I don’t think I have been able to review/shoot a band at the warehouse without there being some kind of issue with my pass. I was looking forward to catching Issues, but instead waited for around an… Keep Reading

Jerry Williams Live At Jimmy’s.

Jerry Williams kicked off her tour in Manchester last night I first heard of Jerry Williams whilst reviewing Neighbourhood Weekender 2018, and since then I have been determined to catch her at a concert, so was pleased when I heard she was playing Jimmy’s. The night was opened by two talented acts, Maddy Storm and Wild Front, and they started the night off well, and the venue was packed before… Keep Reading

Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls perform to a sold out Victoria Warehouse.

Frank Turner and US pals, Jimmy Eat World, play to a sold out Victoria Warehouse. Jimmy Eat World and Frank Turner are two names I didn’t think I’d see on a bill together. I done know why, but something about that jarred for me. Stylistically, there have been pairings that are much less similar than Jimmy and Frank Turner, but having grown up with Jimmy in the ‘emo’ publications, and… Keep Reading

Richard Ashcroft Delivers Early Christmas Present From Manchesters Albert Hall

An early Christmas present that was well and truly worth the wait. Tonight’s gig is the rearranged one from October, where Ashcroft at late notice had to cancel both the Manchester concert as well as the London Kentish town one as well, due to ill health. Having sold out for the original date, and a DJ for the opening support, The Albert Halls was packed to the rafters, virtually as… Keep Reading

British Britpop/indie rockers Razorlight return from their long-imposed exile to play the sold-out Manchester Ritz, all the old hits where there mixed in amid their latest offering. There are two support bands this evening first up is Fetiche, French rock band, unfortunately for me they where lost… Keep Reading

Gig Of The Year For The Slow Readers Club?

Carefully and confidently the band have made a march on Manchesters Iconic Apollo theatre selling out 3 months in advance. As I ventured into Manchester Apollo tonight, it is just a little over 4 years, since I first had the pleasure of seeing The Slow Readers perform, over at Manchester’s Night & Day Café. For me it was clear from that initial gig, there was something special about this band….… Keep Reading

Bury Tomorrow, Manchester Ritz

Southampton’s metalcore band, Bury Tomorrow, return to Manchester’s O2 Ritz. Accompanied by Crystal Lake, Cane Hill and 36 Crazyfists, Bury Tomorrow tear down the Ritz. I thought this would be a tough gig to shoot, and I was right. I have never been landed on by so many crowd-surfers in such a small period of time. Couple this with trying to shoot a band who had purposefully raised the stage… Keep Reading

LIVE REVIEW: DMA’s at Victoria Warehouse, Manchester

DMA’s treat Manchester to something special. A spectacular night of music, with an even more spectacular atmosphere. DMA’s have come a long way in their not so long career, and the people of Manchester really know it. In 2015, they played the tiny Night and Day Cafe, and last night they played a 3,500 capacity warehouse. If that doesn’t show how much this band have grown in the past 3/4… Keep Reading

Ocean Colour Scene, deliver an early Christmas present, in a masterclass of Indie rock at its best! Ocean Colour Scene, the stalwarts of 90’s Britpop nostalgia, take to the stage for the second sold out evening at Manchester’s Albert Hall.

OUR FOLD: Step Aside… Dave Grohl!

When Neighbourhood Festival asked their followers on their Instagram account who were the highlights of the festival, instantly I responded with Our Fold – and I wouldn’t have it any other way! This four piece band, hailing from Bolton, blew my tiny little mind. I was completely hypnotised by the lead singer, Damien, who I can only describe as Bolton’s answer to Dave Grohl. As a singer myself, I find… Keep Reading

LIVE REVIEW: PVMNTS Rebellion, Manchester

PVMNTS with merely a demo accomplished a considerable fan-base as well as a more than expected slew of critical analysis for a relatively new band. Nothing new having a bit of hyperbolic discourse in music for sure, especially as one of the band has been ‘right successful on the telly’ in a US teen series. But PVMNTS are a pop-punk band and it’s 2018. A three-chord melody and an anthemic chorus… Keep Reading
