Live Review: Emma Blackery @ The Waterfront

Emma Blackery kicked off her YouTube channel in 2012 with funny short vlogs and sketches, but what a lot of her followers do not know is that she started making videos to promote her music. She has often stated that she is not a YouTuber who makes music, but a musician who does YouTube—and this…


Live Review: Circa Waves @ The LCR

It has been two years since indie rockers Circa Waves’ last UK tour, and its fair to say they’ve made good use of that time.
