Live Reviews


Pavement @ Barrowland, Glasgow, 05/05/2010

Pavement put on a memorable show and Malkmus summed up his band perfectly on “Frontwards” when he sang “Well I’ve got style/ Miles and miles/ So much style that its wasted”.

The Like @ The Old Blue Last, London 05/05/2010

The Like have picked up a new audience, and rumour has it, they’re about to become big.

LCD Soundsystem @ O2 Academy, Birmingham 26/04/2010

It’s unfortunate that this is likely to be their last tour as this gig felt more like another ‘Hello’ than a final farewell.

The Courteeners @ Q The Music Club Live at Hard Rock Cafe

Whether The Courteeners will find their place amongst the greats that adorn the walls is yet to be seen.

Errors, So So Modern and Race Horses @ The Scala, London 04/03/2010

Errors unleashed their blend of new wave acid house on a mesmerised following at London’s modest sized Scala, but not until after an intriguing support line-up.

Hot Chip @ Birmingham Academy, 20/02/2010

The added dimensions afforded by live instrumentation were the real highlight of an amazing set.

Erland & the Carnival @ The Glee Club, Birmingham 19/02/2010

With their collection of wonderfully crafted and re-worked tracks, band members from the best musical stock and a charismatic front man, Erland & the Carnival have every box ticked

The Violet May – The Stockroom, Sheffield 13/02/2010

The Violet May are noisy and melodic with just the right amount of rough around the edges.

Delphic @ The Tabernacle, London 26/01/2010

Delphic are still clearly a work in progress and given a few more high profile performances they should feel comfortable with their new found status and deliver the performances their album promises.

Dead Confederate – Hoxton Bar and Grill, London 01/12/2009

Their deep southern droll might sound out of step with the current scene, but their live show is an unrelenting performance which will leave you speechless.
