Live Review: Guilfest 2014.

It was great to see Guilfest back in 2014, the crowd and performers seemed to be so ready for it, I had never attended but had heard how much fun the Festival was so I was looking forward to be there. As soon as I arrived I felt welcomed and everything was running smoothly and organised. I got my photo pass and knew it would be a special three days running around with my camera photographing great bands. The weather was like we were in Greece or Spain…blue skies and the sun kept shining for almost the whole weekend...

Live Review: Camden Rocks

No mud, no wellingtons or smelly portaloos. It sounded like my kind of Festival. An amazing selection of 20 venues with more than 200 bands playing an extensive array of genres. Camden Rocks review and photography by Solange Moreira-Yeoell Luckily it was a sunny day, and by midmorning the Camden area was buzzing with gig goers collecting their wristbands from the heart of Camden venues, The Worlds End Pub by The Underworld. Being difficult – actually quite impossible – to be at every venue, I decide to choose a few and take the day from there. At The Underworld first...

Live Review: Drive By Truckers @ The Empire.

I had never seen Georgia based band Drive By Truckers before, and I was extremely excited to photograph and experience a night of live music at Shepherds Bush Empire. The band’s music dates back three decades now and I spent the days prior to the show catching up on the music I was previously unfamiliar with. The show was the closing date of their UK tour and it looked to be a really cracking gig with the crowd at the Empire  eager for some great rock music. Heartless Bastards, a four piece from Ohio, opened the show up. Front-lady...

Live Review: All Time Low @ Brixton Academy.

Somewhere in between growing hair in some very odd places, and many a violent mood swing; I fell in love with a pop punk band from Maryland, Baltimore. I’ve gone through a lot of changes since then, and so have All Time Low. Admittedly there are some mixed emotions when a band you once saw playing tiny venues are now playing their second sell out show at the mammoth Brixton Academy. Nonetheless, the consistent fan support is overwhelming, with the queue looping the South London town twice over before the doors of the venue have even opened. Clearly tonight’s...

Live Review: Family @ Shepherds Bush Empire.

Underestimated by the mainstream but largely adored by those in the know Family caused euphoric joy when they reformed for two special shows last year at this very venue.Initially for a one off experience Family are rightly back doing it again exactly one year on ,with this time just the one date at the Shepherds Bush Empire with a home date the night before in Leicester. Family with Roger Chapman and oters plays Shepherds Bush Empire on 1.2.2014 (Solange Moreira-Yeoell)  The sharply dressed guitarist Jim Cregan shone throughout along with original members drummer Rob Townsend and vibraphonist John ‘Poli’...

Photography: Imagine Dragons @ Brixton Academy.

In November the O2 Brixton Academy hosted the first of three shows from the Las Vegas bred Imagine Dragons. Solange went along to photograph. The show was in aid of supporting their new album, Night Visions. It was an exciting display, with massive drums scattered across the stage. The crowd seemed eager and enthusiastic waiting for the band to appear. As soon as the lights went out, an incredible roar from the front row shook the entire venue to its core. Front man Dan Reynolds moved freely and energetically covering all ends of the stage. The whole set here...

Live Review: Warped Tour UK @ Alexandra Palace.

In it’s second year, the UK Vans Warped Tour has a lot to live up to. In the US, the tour is a mammoth 3 month event, showcasing many genres such as Punk, Metal and Rap in the peak of Summer. Although the UK leg only lasts for 2 days and sits in the middle of a cold, miserable November; it brings some of the best alternative bands from all over the world together with a little bit of controversy thrown in for some, what we will call, extra fun. Vini and Solange went along to find out more....

Live Review: Tomoyasu Hotei @ Shepherds Bush Empire.

Tomoyasu Hotei, who last played London at the Roundhouse in Dec 2012, was back at Shepherds Bush Empire with his Electric Samurai concert on another cold winter’s evening. That didn’t stop his Japanese and London fans being there for a night of exciting live music. Solange Moreira-Yeoell went along to photograph and review Hotei came to the stage greeted enthusiastically by the audience, who were involved and very polite. Opening with Phoenix and a special arrangement of the Mission Impossible theme it was not long before he introduced his first special guest Andy Mackay from Roxy Music bringing his...
