Islington is emblematic of what life is like inside the gentrified bubble of London. Despite invoking yuppie dreams of flashy restaurants, cocktail bars and boutique shopping, Islington is still a hub for music that is vibrant and embracing of all different styles and creeds. Since re-opening in 2010, Islington Assembly Hall has played host to […]

Tonight sees Ed Nash (ex-Bombay Bicycle Club)’s band play the Leeds Brudenell Social Club on the fifth night of their debut tour. The album ‘The Pace of the Passing’ is a wonderful collection of songs that Nash has spent the last year pouring every ounce of his being into, so it will be nice to […]

The love for American pop punk over here in England is dedicated and tight-knit. As a result, shows like this are attended religiously. Once again Slam Dunk have provided a stellar line up consisting of Tiny Moving Parts, Trash Boat, Pup and The Wonder Years.
Situated in a vibrant part of West London, Notting Hill Arts Club is a haven for live music. Far from the gritty, edgy venues of Shoreditch, the Arts Club resides under a HSBC branch. Fitting yet disconcerting, Notting Hill Arts Club has a more up market vibe than most grassroots venues. Catering to the clubbers […]
On the release day of their new EP ‘Livin La Vida Bolton’, Jordan Allen embraces Manchester’s Albert Hall. The EP’s title is a nod to the rising rock and roll band’s humble hometown of Bolton.

The entrance to the right of the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel looks as unassuming as any other apartment building. The two doormen, still looking bewildered at the number of young and ‘clearly not wealthy enough’ people in their building, usher us to the lift. Two more flights of stairs and an enormous corridor later, you […]

The Camden Assembly however, caters for all […]

Tonight, we see them hit Leeds’ O2 Academy as part of a sold out UK tour with new kids […]
As a child, I grew up with the church. Every Sunday morning, we would venture out as a family for the hour or so to partake in prayer. Stepping back into a church for the first time in some years had quite a strange effect on me, especially due to the circumstances. Illuminated with candles […]
Bristol’s Family Jools presented a glorious throwback to the past on Monday night in Camden boozer, The Fiddlers Elbow, melding the cool wooziness of 70’s rock with effervescent blues. It was a short performance, the band only playing four songs, but it was more than enough to achieve real impact.
Two years ago, with just two tracks online, Get Inuit were part of a bill showcasing Kent talent, playing to just over a dozen people in a pub in Maidstone. Now the Sittingbourne lads are Radio 1 regulars, and this show is sold out.
Over the years The Lexington, based in North London, has gathered a reputation for putting on some of the best up and coming bands. Tonight is no different. This show comes as part of The Line Of Best Fit’s five day festival, showing off some of the blogs most hotly tipped bands for 2017, aptly […]
The Games Room in the Brudenell Social Club is perfectly set for an it’s-almost-Christmas show with its decorative blue fairy light backdrop and inviting stage. With a gin and tonic being my choice of festive beverage tonight, it’s time to dance and get merry.
