Festival Review: SXSW 2019

SXSW 2019 8 – 17 March 2019 Words and Photos: Elena Katrina I didn’t think that I would ever go to SXSW. It seemed far away and I’m not just talking about geography. I have the bug though – in both ways – the way in which I don’t want to ever miss it ever … Continue reading

SXSW With: The Amazons

The Amazons Words & Photos: Elena Katrina Almost 3 years ago The Amazons played their first Liverpool show and we were there to grab them, take them off for a beer and to our then photographer Gaz’s house to play table football, while Gary questioned them for an interview. A lot has happened for The … Continue reading

SXSW With: Fatherson

Fatherson Words and photos: Elena Katrina When I first moved to Liverpool one of the first visiting bands to the city centre who I interviewed was Fatherson. Since then I’ve enjoyed a fair few shows, cried along to a few songs and thoroughly enjoyed all that they were about. It was, therefore, a no-brainier for … Continue reading

SXSW With: Island

Island Words: Elena Katrina Photo: Thibaut De Lestré I’ve been a fan of Island for a while and I’ve had the pleasure of hanging with them before but this is our first interview – madness right? Right! Maybe it’s the fact they already “know” me or maybe it’s all the free alcohol but this turns … Continue reading

SXSW With: Anteros

Words and Photos: Elena Katrina Sitting at Vevo House – the venue which is about to become our most used venue to hang with bands – I get to meet Anteros… finally. It’s been a good few years since I first saw them live, yet somehow it’s taken until now to finally meet them. Hailing … Continue reading
