Live: Jo Harman @ The Jazz Cafe Camden

RockShot doesn’t do album reviews. If it did, I’d be able to tell you that Jo Harman’s sophomore album People We Become, released earlier this month to wide critical acclaim, is truly exceptional and you really, really should buy it. Oh. Whilst I can’t do what I just did, I can report on the launch gig for the new record, held in Camden’s iconic Jazz Cafe – my first visit to this venue since it underwent a change in ownership and a radical internal improvement at the back end of last year. Traditionally, this place has bathed its performers...

Live: Joanne Shaw Taylor @ Jazz Café.

Joanne Shaw Taylor @ Jazz Café, Camden, London When there’s a queue outside the venue a full 30 minutes before doors opening, you know there’s something good going on.  Such was the cache of expectation for Joanne Shaw Taylor’s second night at the Jazz Café, the last date on her current UK tour promoting her most recent album The Dirty Truth.  Places near the front were going to be hard to come by, and sure enough, within minutes there was a healthy wall of bodies at stage front which over the next hour swelled to a packed and pretty warm...

Live: Rich Robinson @ The Jazz Cafe

Rich Robinson @ The Jazz Cafe. In the early 1990s, no self-respecting fan of good ole’ southern rock would be without a copy of The Black Crowes’ Shake Your Money Maker whizzing away in their CD player. Although the band never quite replicated the dynamic energy of their debut in later releases, there’s no denying the quality of the music that the brothers, vocalist Chris, and guitarist Rich Robinson cooked up in The Black Crowes – and their legacy is secured; listen to any US Classic Rock radio station and they are never more than 15 minutes away it...

Interview: Umar Bin Hassan of The Last Poets. Change Is Coming.

The Last Poets have been railing against American politics and discrimination since their emergence from the civil rights movement in the 1960s. Proving the pen is mightier than the sword, they have inspired for decades with their fearless poetry set to hypnotic beats and are frequently credited as the forefathers of hip hop. Their recent gig, at Jazz Cafe, included a showcase of the group’s collaborative project with new, young London-based poets (for the Apples and Snakes: Speak Up Newcomers Tour), highlighting both their relevance to and interest in the next generation of spoken word artists. Before the show,...

Playing their biggest headline show to date, Montréal-based indie rockers Half Moon Run returned to Camden, albeit the Chalk Farm end, just a few months after their explosive Koko show following the release of their second studio album Sun Leads Me On.

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
