Talisk + Folkestra @ Sage Gateshead – 20/05/22

Yes, you read the title right. This is a LIVE REVIEW! Wow, I haven’t written one of these in a long time.

I’ve been a fan of Talisk since 2017, when Spotify … Continue reading Talisk + Folkestra @ Sage Gateshead – 20/05/22

(L-R: Michael Barker, The Holy Smokes, The Baroque) Photos: Beth M Cameron  Words: The Captain It’s another Tuesday night in Edinburgh.

Live Review: Eyre Llew, L-Space & Echo Arcadia @ Sneaky Pete’s 08/03/17

Words & Photo: The Captain It’s a Wednesday night and what better to do than go to a gig on the Cowgate! Out of the line up, I’ve only ever heard Echo Arcadia before because they were on the final episode of “The Captain’s Log” the week before. However, I have heard great things about the two other bands so I am very excited. First … Continue reading Live Review: Eyre Llew, L-Space & Echo Arcadia @ Sneaky Pete’s 08/03/17

Live Review: Trivium @ Barrowland Ballroom 16/02/17

Words & Photo: The Captain It’s a Thursday night and I’m in Glasgow to see Trivium for the second time.

Live Review: Pronto Mama w/ SeaOfCrowns @ The Electric Circus 03/06/15

Words: The Captain It’s Wednesday, which means those “mid-week blues”. However, these are easily cured by some awesome live music. So here I am again in one of my favourite venues The Electric Circus to see two awesome bands. First, we are treated to alterntive Edinburgh rockers SeaOfCrowns. They introduce themselves and tell us to “come over to the party zone” (apparently it’s been scientifically proven that … Continue reading Live Review: Pronto Mama w/ SeaOfCrowns @ The Electric Circus 03/06/15

Live Review: Lyndsey Craig, The Durty Wurks, James King @ The City Café 28/05/15

Words: The Captain It’s another one of those shitty “summer” nights in Edinburgh (you know, pouring rain and wind that knocks grannies over) and I’m cosied up in City 2 for Cavalier Youth Promotions’ FIRST EVER GIG (certainly THE best place to be tonight)! First, the brilliant James King graces the floor; a spiffing mix of acoustic/indie with some jazz thrown in for good measure. … Continue reading Live Review: Lyndsey Craig, The Durty Wurks, James King @ The City Café 28/05/15

Live Review: Snide Rhythms, May He Go, Two Wrongs @ The Electric Circus 19/05/15

Words: The Captain Once upon a time, in a city not so far away, a small crowd gathers at a venue. The city in question is *drum roll* EDINBURGH! Well done, if you got it right, you can have a Bucky Bomb! The bill tonight looks so simply delicious, so when two-piece instrumental band Two Wrongs take to the stage, my eyes (and ears) and … Continue reading Live Review: Snide Rhythms, May He Go, Two Wrongs @ The Electric Circus 19/05/15
