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 […]
We’re well into free-summer-shows season, and they make up three of your options below, so after you’ve finished watching some World Cup matches or eaten some nachos (why not both?), you’ve got some great options. Perhaps Germany’s players wanted to skip the rest of the tournament in favour of one of the below…
Let’s start with some good news, Shea Stadium reached their kickstarter goal in just a few hours yesterday. Why stop there though, you can continue to donate here. The last few years have been more than hard for DIY venues but the rally of support yesterday was really quite something, and long may it continue. […]
Happy new year! We made it to 2017! Hopefully everyone had a good break (if indeed you were lucky enough to have one), sincere best wishes to everyone for the coming year, I’ve a feeling we’re going to need all the help we can get. Thankfully, in terms of live shows, 2017 is kicking off […]

A Winged Victory for the Sullen showed that you can serve up maximum intensity with minimal sound, their performance on Tuesday night at Le Poisson Rouge will live long in the memory.

Earlier this month, there was a post on Snowmine’s first headlining show and Conveyor was briefly mentioned as one of the opening bands. After experiencing their lively act at Glasslands Gallery, I am compelled to properly introduce these men to you guys.
