Live Review GENRE ARCHIVES

Linkin Park @ The O2 Arena London

Night one of Linkin Park in London, which has already led to a bit of a sceptical pre-show. Firstly, after much debate of tickets stating “with Special Guests” it was finally confirmed that there was no support act and the band were “happy to play a longer set” which O2 Arena stated would be 8.30pm […]

The Strypes Live at Dingwalls, Camden

On 13th June 2017, the best-dressed boys in music, The Strypes, headed to Camden’s Dingwalls for what turned out to be probably one of the best gigs that venue has seen. Before The Strypes, the crowd were warmed up first by Sasha Adamczewski who killed it with his raspy vocals and blues-y, rock n’ roll grooves atop […]

Slam Dunk 2017 comes amid the aftermath of the terror attack at Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester, something which affected the entire music community.

First up is local alt-rockers The Decoy, their set didn’t get off to a great start with some pedal issues, however it picked up rapidly […]

Youth Killed It supported by Franko Fraize and Marigolds

Youth Killed It played an awesome headline show at Norwich Epic Studios last Wednesday with support from Franko Fraize and Marigolds. Opened by Marigolds with a very chilled indie feel; the kind of music you expect to hear in a hipster-esque coffee shop. Personally, I’m usually not a fan of this style of music but […]

CKY live @ The Wedgewood Rooms

CKY bought late 90s early 00s nostalgia to the Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth on Wednesday night. The trio showcased their vast touring experience with a very accomplished set to a devoted crowd. Opening for CKY tonight were the Graveyard Johnnys. Also a three piece, Graveyard Johnnys are somewhat unique in that instead of a normal […]

Patent Pending @ London O2 Academy

  Live from the O2 Academy in London, I had the pleasure of witnessing Patent Pending who provide nothing short of a good time when it comes to live shows, with the core energy and raw emotion they provide on stage you can’t help but find your way as close to the action as possible to get […]

While She Sleeps live @ The Talking Heads Southampton

Just 6 days after the release of their outstanding 3rd album You Are We, While She Sleeps proved to a sold out 350 capacity Talking Heads that they won’t be playing venues of this size for much longer. First up were Leeds alt rockers Fizzy Blood. As people still made their way into the venue, […]

Bury Tomorrow and Crossfaith @ Y Plas, Cardiff

Today sees the return of people to Cardiff’s students union during the Easter holidays for Bury Tomorrow‘s Welsh leg of their UK headline tour! By the time I arrive at the venue, Black Peaks are halfway through their set and have the crowd entertained with their energetic stage presence. The band sound on top form […]

Holding Absence, Continents & Nightlives @ Clwb Ifor Bach

On Thursday, I was off to Clwb Ifor Bach to see Holding Absence at their sold out hometown show! I’m going to say now that the gig was insanely good! All bands smashed it and I really enjoyed myself. I went to the gig only knowing Holding Absence and Nightlives. I heard a lot of […]
