Gig Review – Steven Page Live in London

27 October 2017 at Bush Hall, London Those of you who have read my gig reviews before will know that I don't often write straightforward, standard reviews of the shows I see.  If the artist is of great meaning to me I will write about how the event made me feel.  And this is one … Continue reading Gig Review – Steven Page Live in London

Gig Review – The Divine Comedy Live In London

22 February 2017 at The London Palladium The last time I saw The Divine Comedy live was around 2001 when they toured as a double headliner with Ben Folds.  I still remember that gig now and often cite it as one of my all time favourite nights of music.  Perhaps that's why I stupidly chose to … Continue reading Gig Review – The Divine Comedy Live In London

Gig Review – Teenage Fanclub Live in Cardiff

27 November 2016 at The Glee Club, Cardiff After seeing Teenage Fanclub back in September in London, I decided that I would definitely go and see them again when they toured their new album Here later in the year. So, I went along to Rock City in Nottingham and stuck to the floor having a lovely time … Continue reading Gig Review – Teenage Fanclub Live in Cardiff

Gig Review – The Trashcan Sinatras Live In London

13 November 2016 at The Garage, London A friend of mine reckons the name The Trashcan Sinatras sounds like they should be a punk band. He was somewhat surprised when I told him that they are in fact a Scottish indie band who deliver some of the most beautiful melodies and lyrics I've ever heard.  I sent … Continue reading Gig Review – The Trashcan Sinatras Live In London

Gig Review – Teenage Fanclub Live in London

In fact, I don't really write anything in the usual way, but I … Continue reading Gig Review – Teenage Fanclub Live in London

A Day In The Sun At The Splendour Festival 2016

23 July 2016 at Wollaton Park, Nottingham So.  I joined a sold out crowd last weekend and sat outside in the beautiful sunshine to experience the Splendour Festival here in Nottingham.  It's something of a tradition to go along and join in the fun so I was interested to see what all the fuss was … Continue reading A Day In The Sun At The Splendour Festival 2016

Gig Review – Belle And Sebastian Live In London

22 June 2016 at The Royal Albert Hall, London Firstly, I should probably say that this isn't really a gig review in the same way I would usually write about a concert I've been to.  The whole night for me was something of an experience in itself so rather than writing a clinical style review … Continue reading Gig Review – Belle And Sebastian Live In London

Gig Review – Ladyhawke Live in Nottingham

11 June 2016 at The Rescue Rooms, Nottingham On a rainy Saturday night when the rest of Nottingham seemed to be elsewhere watching the football, I happily joined a small but excited audience to watch Ladyhawke at The Rescue Rooms. Support for the evening was Devon singer-songwriter Alice Jemima.  Mixing a sweet and sultry breathy vocal … Continue reading Gig Review – Ladyhawke Live in Nottingham
