While trying not to be consumed in depression about elections in my country of birth today, where the state of politics is at a depressingly all time low and the best case I can think of is a gridlocked hung parliament, I find the best medicine is always live music. So here we go, drink […]
There’s a good mix of guitar-based shows this weekend, albeit a very cruel Saturday for my musical tastes in particular. Where are we with that being-in-multiple-places-at-the-same-time technology thing?
I’m not going to pretend I have anything interesting to say for an intro, but there are some excellent shows this weekend, so look below!
Happy blah blah blah, consumerism be damned yada yada. It turns out that all the best shows happen to be on Valentine’s Day, who would have thought! Forget the roses and chocolates and maybe get your significant other a ticket to one of these shows, or not, what do we know.

Each band member studied jazz at university, though the record is about as unabashedly power-pop as it gets, it has certainly given them all the chops they could possibly need by the sounds of […]
Happy start-of-the-world-cup day, everyone! With the tournament now underway in Russia (for whom Trump is presumably cheering), the time difference works in our favour to watch games and then still be free in the evening to hit up some concerts, which is handy because everything below the jump is an absolutely outstanding option.
