Live Review: Marsicans – Manchester

Marsicans Words: Joe Cockburn  Photos: Georgia Flynn Snow had obliterated gigs across the country in early March, but buoyed by a week of seeing the absolutely epic Everything Everything twice, a much more intimate but equally as grand setting of Manchester’s Deaf Institute welcomed Marsicans on their (almost) sold-out UK tour – “damn you Glasgow,” … Continue reading

Live Review: Shame – Manchester

Shame Manchester, Gorilla, 13th April 2018 Words: Caleb Curtis If Whitworth Street West in Manchester didn’t know who Shame were by the start of the night, they certainly did by the end. With attitudes that spoke as loud as their blistering sound, Gorilla itself appeared to be shaking at the foundations, as the young band cavorted their way through … Continue reading

Live Review: Circa Waves: Liverpool

Circa Waves EBGBS Liverpool, 5th April 2018 Words: Gary Lambert Photos: Fiona Carroll  Before I went beyond the world of being a music fan and started to write about gigs and pester bands about their opinions on life rather than just babble my congratulations in an overly excited manner, I had a very strong opinion of … Continue reading

Live Review: Pale Waves – Liverpool

Pale Waves Studio 2, Liverpool, 24th February 2018 Words & Photos: Elena Katrina It’s still absolutely baltic outside and there was a tiny part of me who really wanted to stay in the warm but the pull of not just one, not just two even, but three, great bands all playing the same line up … Continue reading

Live Review: Lucy Rose – Brighton

Lucy Rose The Old Market, Brighton, 4th November 2017 Words & Photos: Chloe Hashemi I’ve always liked Lucy Rose. Having seen her live a couple of times over the past few years, I have always enjoyed watching her do her thing. But the key thing to know is that before the other night, I had … Continue reading

Live Review: Dream Wife – Liverpool

Dream Wife The Magnet, Liverpool, October 12th 2017 Words: Gary Lambert Photos: Graham Smilie I’m a bit older than the kids at gigs today, so I don’t know if they have scrapbooks and memory boxes. But if they did (and I’m sure at least the quirky ones rebelling against social media will have), this gig … Continue reading

Live Review: Pale Waves – Manchester

Pale Waves Sound Control, Manchester 18th October 2017 Words & Photos: Tara Atkinson To look at them you’d think Manchester quartet Pale Waves were an up and coming punk band, you’d be surprised if you walked past the sold out Sound Control on Wednesday night to hear beautiful indie waves streaming through the doors. Having … Continue reading

Live Review: Sundara Karma – Liverpool

Sundara Karma Mountford Hall, Liverpool, October 6th 2017 Words: Gary Lambert Photos: Georgia Flynn   Sundara Karma at Liverpool Guild of Students, or Mountford Hall as anybody over thirty with a taste for proper names would know it.  For me, this was the big one.  This is the first time I have seen one of … Continue reading

Live Review: Amber Run – Brighton

Amber Run Concorde 2, Brighton October 2017 Words & Photos: Chloe Hashemi It’s always a treat when you get to see not one but two great bands grace the same stage in a single evening. That being said, you can imagine my delight when I found out I would be seeing both Amber Run and … Continue reading

Live Review: Lana Del Rey – Liverpool

Lana Del Rey Echo Arena, Liverpool, September 2017 Words: Gary Lambert I cannot abide the term “guilty pleasures” as it suggests that there is something wrong with enjoyment. But for a self-confessed music snob who proudly lambasts members of indie bands for falling in love with stage school types, a gig by Lana Del Rey … Continue reading

Live Review: Anteros – Brighton

Anteros Komedia, Brighton, 25th September 2017 Words & Photos: Chloe Hashemi For those who have ever visited Komedia Studio nestled in the Brighton Lanes, you’ll know how wonderfully small and cosy it is. This little fact can definitely work to the band’s strengths, or, in the worst case scenario, can just convert the room into … Continue reading

Live Review: Otherkin – Liverpool

Otherkin Buyers Club, Liverpool, 6th October 2017 Words & Photos: Elena Katrina In an unexpected turn of events I found myself of a Friday night with not just one but two gigs to go to.

Live Review: Tom Grennan – Liverpool

Tom Grennan Leaf, Liverpool, 4th October 2017 Words: Gary Lambert Photos: Elena Katrina   When a touring gig above a bar/café sells out two months before the artist is due to step foot on the stage, you know there is going to be a certain level of expectation regarding the night.
