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

When Macclesfield rockers The Virginmarys tour, Manchester will always be considered their hometown show. While some bands might feel the pressure of this duo Ally Dickaty and Danny Dolan clearly only felt pure love. Club Academy was crammed with a crowd sporting more merch T-shirts that a City home match, that proudly sang every word to the entire set. From the earlier releases of Dead Man’s Shoes and Just A… Keep Reading

LIVE REVIEW: Tonight Alive, Birmingham o2 Institute

“Is anyone else feeling happy tonight? Because I am.” There’s no better feeling than nostalgia when seeing a band, and whilst Australian alt rockers Tonight Alive aren’t an old band, they bought the same energy and passion to Birmingham’s o2 Institute2 as they did when they first broke through. With Wolf Culture and Jamie Lenman supporting, the night flew by on an adrenaline induced high. Punk quartet Wolf Culture kicked… Keep Reading

Clutch, Chattanooga, Tennessee, US

Clutch rocks The Signal. Clutch is no stranger to Chattanooga, Tennessee, US and Friday night their fans didn’t leave much standing room at Chattanooga’s newest music venue, The Signal. I have listened to Clutch since 2000 and I am always surprised they do not get more mainstream attention for their talent. It’s raw rock n roll with a dash of soul, and a touch of let me smash your face.… Keep Reading

The Killers Arrive In Bolton

Brandon Flowers and what can now only be described as an ensemble (nine musicians on stage and only two remaining members of the four piece band that brought us “Hot Fuss”, including Brandon himself) achieved a spectacular feat of showmanship at the Macron Stadium. I never thought I’d type this but in Brandon’s words they brought “fabulous Las Vegas Nevada” with all of its glitter to the streets of Bolton.… Keep Reading

Foo Fighters Live Review, London Stadium

It’s hard to believe that Foo Fighters have been around for over 20 years, it doesn’t seem feasible that this band rose from the ashes of Nirvana, soon after Kurt Cobain’s demise. But they have and they did, and Dave Grohl and company know how to keep their audience happy. And tonight’s show at the London Olympic Stadium was no exception. “ARE YOU READY TO DO IT AGAIN!!!!!” screams Dave… Keep Reading

Northern Invasion Festival, Somerset Wisconsin

After the dust settles, all we are left with is our memories. It’s been almost two weeks since Northern Invasion closed out its 4th year. It was my first year in attendance and it has taken me awhile to really formulate into words what was such a great experience. I went into this weekend with only knowing a handful of the artists. I checked out everyone ahead of time and… Keep Reading
