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: Declan McKenna @ Waterfront Studio

Declan McKenna began his first major headline tour at Norwich’s Waterfront Studio on Monday 23rd January in superb fashion, delivering a punchy hour-long, twelve song set. Support came from Leeds four-piece Clay who got the sold-out crowd moving for half an hour with a set including recent single ‘6AM’, interspersed with patter from likable frontman…


Live Review: Frank Turner @ The LCR

Frank Turner had played 1995 shows before he took to the LCR stage with his backing band The Sleeping Souls. It would be safe to assume he is an experienced live musician by this point, and he certainly proves it with show 1996. His curated support selection shines beforehand. Esme Patterson brings authentic heartfelt indie…


Live Review: Embrace @ The Waterfront

Embrace are a band viewed by many as a remnant of the 90’s scene that emerged in the wake of Britpop titans Oasis, but they actually have far more in common with bands such as Coldplay and The Verve in terms of song-writing and overall sound, if not stage presence. The Coldplay association has always…


You Me At Six – Night People ★★★★

You Me At Six are a band who have had their fair share of triumphs. They have also had a lot of underwhelming events. Previous album Cavalier Youth impressed at first but left little lasting impression besides a handful of good singles. The tour for the album was complimented for performance and production, but criticised…


Live Review: Kate Tempest @ The Waterfront

Poet and musician Kate Tempest visited Norwich on Monday 5th December as she toured recently released album Let Them Eat Chaos. Boxed In were the support, the stage name of Oli Bayston and his band. They played a set of sultry electro numbers from their two albums to date which put their thumping live bass…


Live Review: Beans on Toast @ Owl Sanctuary

According to all known laws of recreation, there is no way for a Sunday gig to be exciting. There is no way the sleepy feeling can be overridden to have a good time. Beans on Toast, of course, excites anyway because he doesn’t care what people think is impossible. This Sunday night in the attic…


Live Review: Honeyblood @ Norwich Arts Centre

Glaswegian indie-pop duo Honeyblood formed back in 2012 and watched the rise (and arguable fall) of other subscribers to the duo formula; ranging from the heavier Royal Blood to the originals Death From Above 1979. Coming off the wave of hype generated by their latest album, Babes Never Die, the question for their performance at…


Live Review: Rag’n’Bone Man @ Waterfront Studio

At the Waterfront Studio in Norwich there was very much a ‘day of the dead’ vibe going on, with neon skulls illuminating a crowd of around 100. Those who showed up to see the rock/soul singer were in for a performance that can simply be described as a narrative; reflective of the origins of this London-based singer and…
