Marking the midpoint in a 14-date tour, the Little Comets came to Sheffield to show the locals how to party. Catfish and the Bottlemen proved to be a great supporting act, working the crowd until everyone could feel the music in their hearts and in their breath. Wednesday nights are difficult to work with in …

It’s Saturday night, there’s a relentless squall of rain and me and my girlfriend are stood in an optimistic and good-natured queue that stretches down to High Street. Of course, if that row of shops on Arundel Gate hadn’t provided appropriate shelter, we’d probably all be considerably less good natured, but the majority of the …

Thursday night saw us carefully picking our way through dense fog along the old Manchester Road to Holmfirth. Destination, one of my all-time favourite venues, The Picturedrome, to see an act we last saw well over 20 years ago. Lloyd Cole was the first ‘proper’ gig I took our lass to see. The gig was …

Thankfully, the highly amusing if somewhat, over enthusiastic member of the audience that had entertained us, whilst distracting support act LSA, had crashed, burned and left the building well before Dick Dale’s Misirlou came over the PA, as we welcomed Darlia to the stage.

The atmosphere for a show on home territory was exactly as you’d expect it to be: a crowd that was filled with friends and fans, both encouraging her on …

With the amount of football shirts and track tops on display, you could have been forgiven for thinking you had just stumbled into the bar after a 5 aside competition. On closer inspection you soon realise everyone is wearing number 7. Some great players have pulled on the number 7 shirt for either club or …

Nathan Clark at the Brundenell Social Club always seems to know what and who the people of Leeds want to see and hear and Saturday 23 November was no exception. Firstly, a disclaimer as, apart from hearing a Marc Riley session about a year again, I don’t really know that much about the ChameleonsVox, other …

“We wanted to focus on writing lyrics for the stage…. we like to perform it in a really physical, emotional, violent way.” – Gemma. It’s Monday night, dark damp and quite frankly miserable. We find ourselves on the outskirts of Leeds city centre outside an old industrial that has been converted into a minimalistic contemporary art …
