Festival Review: 2Q Festival – Lincoln

2Q Festival Various venues, Lincoln, 3rd November 2018 Words and photos: Gary Lambert Lincoln, a relatively sleepy town famed for a cathedral, a castle and being in pretty much the middle of nowhere would not normally be the place you would head to early on a Saturday morning.

Live Review: Dream Wife – Manchester

Dream Wife Gorilla, Manchester 26th October 2018 Words & Photos: Gary Lambert It is right to start this review with some honesty….

Saint Agnes The Shipping Forecast, 17th October 2018 Words and photography: Gary Lambert There are times that you come across gigs which leave you with a profound feeling beyond enjoyment.

Live Review: Talos & Editors – Newcastle

Talos & Editors Northumbria University, 11th October 2018 Words: Sammy Sadler I’m ashamed to admit that although I have been a fan of Editors from afar for a long time, I never really paid much attention to the British indie-rock outfit.

Sisteray The Jacaranda Club, 12 October 2018   Words & Photos: Gary Lambert Every legendary band has a tale which may or may not be true about playing a gig to just the barman or old Bill who drank in the pub every night of his life from aged 7. Which sounds cool, but I … Continue reading
