Live Review: Valeras – Liverpool

Valeras Liverpool, Sound, 28th January 2020 Words & Photos: Elena Katrina  That’s it then, the first gig of 2020 out of the way. I always find it hard to step out into the cold after going home after a long day at work. You know, the ones when you went out in the bitter dark … Continue reading

Spector Oval Space, London, 13 November 2019 Words and Photos by Amy Butcher Before I start my review for what turned into my favourite gig of 2019 so far, I must admit I had very little knowledge of how Spector are as a live band.

Live Review: Freya Ridings – Newcastle

Freya Ridings O2 Academy, Newcastle, 11th November 2019 Words and Photography: Lauren Mellor As an opening night of tour, Newcastle is certainly a great place to get warmed up.  And is there much better than seeing a female-powered gig?
