Live: Bush @ Shepherd’s Bush Empire

You’d be forgiven for thinking 1990’s rock outfit Bush were an American band, given both their sound and enduring success across the pond. Their 1994 debut studio record Sixteen Stone was certified 6x Platinum in the U.S., it’s follow-up peaked at #1 in the U.S. album charts and many of their singles hit #1 on the U.S. Alt. Rock charts for a decade. But Bush are, in fact, a British band. So much so that they’re named after the area in which tonight’s gig takes place – Shepherd’s Bush! The original line-up of frontman Gavin Rossdale, drummer Robin Goodridge,...

Catfish and the Bottlemen @ The Forum

Llandudno-based indie rockers Catfish and the Bottlemen have had a great couple of years. From releasing debut album The Balcony in 2014 to winning British Breakthrough Act at this year’s BRIT Awards.

An early signing to Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett’s Communion label, their brand of raucous indie rock seems clearly fashioned after idols Arctic Monkeys. But unlike many followers, their blend of catchy hooks and heavy hitting guitars and drums made them stand...

Live: Lianne La Havas @ Brixton Academy

British folk-soul singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Lianne La Havas closed out her UK headline tour in support of sophomore studio album Blood with the first of two massive shows at London’s Brixton Academy. “I’m going to be honest with you ladies and gentlemen” she said, a grin stretching across her face, “I’m trying very hard to remain calm and it’s really tough, but I find that the singing helps!”, headlining the Brixton Academy definitely a milestone for any band or artist, especially one that grew up on it’ doorstep. La Havas released her first single and subsequent debut album...

Live: Cabbage & Blossoms @ The Roundhouse
Published On: March 26, 2017
I like the Roundhouse. If you can accept the compromised sight lines and sound, there’s something kind of cool about watching a band in an engine shed. It’s run by a charitable trust, which means it’s looked after; your feet don’t stick to the floor. Tonight, the giant dome is hosting the NME Awards Tour 2017, sponsored by VO5 – Continue Reading
