The Wired at The Leadmill

The Wired are hoping to end the year on a high, having released some cracking new music and played a string of important dates, by packing out the main stage of Sheffield’s iconic Leadmill as headliners. They have a solid fanbase and have stuffed the line up full of other interesting acts, ensuring an entertaining …

Honeyblood on stage at Saint Lukes Glasgow December 2016

After releasing a seemingly impossibly perfect second album, Honeyblood complete 2016 with a triumphant homecoming show. The Honeyblood partnership of Stina Tweeddale and Cat Myers take to the stage to the eerie chanting of “never die, never die” and launch straight into the thunderous, and magical, ‘Ready For The Magic’. Then they launch into ‘Love …

Bayonet

Bayonet have good cause to be in a celebratory mood tonight as they take to the stage at the Leadmill in Sheffield. Having bounced around the Sheffield scene playing many a venue and taking their infectious blend of indie pop on the road to other lucky towns and cities, they’re playing a sold out gig …

The Van T's on stage at Stereo Glasgow on 25 November 2016

The Van T’s show that they’re a hard act to follow with a scintillating support slot at Stereo. 2016 has been a weird – and sometimes distressing – year, but it’s been a pretty successful one for The Van T’s. Along with the release of their critically acclaimed EP ‘A Coming Of Age’ in July …

The SSS

The SSS have got good reason to feel proud tonight. Having last seen them play a double bill alongside fellow Sheffield upstarts the Wired at the iconic Leadmill, tonight I am witness to them sell out Sheffield City Hall’s cavernous ballroom in their own right. Ahead of them we get two slightly-further-down-the-queue-to-fame support acts in …

It’s hard to avoid the Paramore subject even after six years, there are still going to be people who are interested in what Josh Farro is doing because they were/still are a fan of Paramore. Even the posters advertising the show in Leeds read “ex-paramore” at the bottom. But you would be mistaken to think …

Teleman

Teleman are having a great night. They’ve sold out the Queens Social Club in Sheffield alongside a number of other venues on their tour, including a few which have been upgraded in size due to popular demand. Here in Sheffield, the crowd are going wild, fervently singing along and even interrupting a mid-song pause with …

Justin Currie on stage with the RSNO at Paisley Abbey

Justin Currie, with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, performed tracks from his solo albums and the Del Amitri back catalogue to a reverent congregation of fans and festival goers. A sold-out Paisley Abbey was the beautiful venue for this collaboration between orchestra and songwriter – now a well-established part of the Paisley Spree Festival programme. …

Neil Hannon

I last saw Neil Hannon of the Divine Comedy under the banner of “An Evening with Neil Hannon” (rather than the full band line-up on show tonight) back in 2010 at Sheffield’s Leadmill. He gave a tour de force performance almost entirely alone, taking up instruments as and when required and giving an incredibly high …

A soundtrack of classic songs from local bands plays over the speakers of the O2 Ritz in Manchester. The walls are already sweaty and crowd lively from the great opening sets from Orphan Boy and Prose. The Enemy are embarking on their final tour of the country after a successful ten years in the business; …
