Live Reviews


The Stone Roses @ Heaton Park, Manchester 29/06/12

Time will tell whether they can ever be a boundary-pushing current band again, but what the hell – nostalgia isn’t so bad.

Pond @ Cargo, London 22/5/12

The three boys from Perth (and Tame Impala) brought their shambolic brand of psychedelic rock to Shoreditch, and won us over in no time.

Cloud Nothings @ Cargo, 9/05/12

Not even a confusing powercut could stop these four ripping Cargo asunder, one guitar riff at a time.

Simple Things Festival – Bristol, 6/5/2012

Simple Things grabbed the best from indie, electro and experimental acts and crammed them into 14 great hours of gigs in 5 venues around the city.

Camden Crawl Festival, 5 – 6/5/2012

Like London’s Great Escape, Camden Crawl serves as a showcase for the next crop of up and coming artists in the industry. Let Festival Season 2012 begin

Bombay Bicycle Club @ De Montfort Hall, Leicester 25/04/2012

Having had the pleasure of seeing the band six times now, I can honestly say that I was not disappointed

Selebrities @ The Old Blue Last, 13/03/12

A stunning London debut for the Brooklyn trio, with synths and piercing guitar lines aplenty

Nada Surf @ KOKO, London 8/02/12

Choice cuts from their last four albums (excluding their debut) provided us with highlights from all stages of their career

The Collectable Few @ The Borderline, London 03/12/11

The Collectable Few had the legion of fangirl ladies bouncing from the off with their pulsating rhythms and 80s funk/pop guitar
