On the heels of his 2000th show, the incredible Frank Turner announced that, in collaboration with OneFest, he'd headline 4 nights at the infamous Camden Roundhouse. But it's not as easy as that. Frank could easily play the same set each day, but instead, he's going to play 2 "greatest hits" sets, and also celebrate the tenth anniversary of "Sleep Is For The Week", and pay homage to the fabled Nambucca days of yore with "Sensible Sunday", an acoustic night, which promises to
It's 6.30 on a Monday night and I'm stood in the venue which I usually associate with midnight on a Saturday night, drunk. But this was for something much better. A tiny, intimate Kaiser Chiefs show. The 500 person room is buzzing with excitement as we walk in, and at 7, the man himself, Christian O'Connell, Absolute Radio's Breakfast Host, jumps onstage. With a bit of banter with the crowd, he introduces the Chiefs who storm on stage to a huge roar. Ricky Wilson takes contro
The venue is The Robin 2, in Bilston, near Wolverhampton. The temperature is below freezing. Tonight, King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys headline. (I have a confession. I've seen this band before, at YNot Festival in Derbyshire. But never on their own merit. More fool me.) Tonight's support comes from Ricky Cool and The In Crowd. For the older readers among you, that name might ring a bell. Ricky Cool has been in many bands since the 1970s, but with The In Crowd, presents a thr
2017. The biggest Slam Dunk to date. The 10 year anniversary of an album that launched the career of the festivals headliners, Enter Shikari, "Take To The Skies" will be played in full. Finally. Alongside the boys from St. Albans, there's a whole array of bands, spanning from Don Broco, through Bowling For Soup, Less Than Jake, and so so so so (continue until you see fit) many more. But now; THERE'S MORE. Well, 9, to be precise. Beartooth Tonight Alive Against Me! Trophy Eyes
One of Scotland’s best musical exports playing in one of Scotland’s best live venues. A match made in heaven. A crowd was quickly starting to form outside the famous Barrowlands Ballroom in Glasgow to see Frightened Rabbit play after a six month wait.
They weren’t alone, however. They had two excellent support acts that really impressed me, Savage Mansion & PAWS. Two bands that did an awesome job at getting the crowd ready for the night of indie rock goodness that lay ahea
The Garage in Glasgow is usually home to some very popular club nights, but tonight was the venue for Ash’s 20th Anniversary celebration of their 1996 album ‘1977’. The nineties alternative rock band from Northern Ireland were on their last tour date to celebrate the anniversary of this record and I must say, choosing The Garage for their venue was an excellent choice. First onto the stage was the first support act of the night ‘Moses’. The boys from London blew me away from
