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 actually wasn’t even approached/asked to do this one, I just really enjoyed the gig and thought I’d share my thoughts with you all. So, without further ado, let’s dive right into it! I’ve been a fan of Talisk since 2017, when Spotify … Continue reading Talisk + Folkestra @ Sage Gateshead – 20/05/22

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. I’ve only ever been in Glasgow once before for a gig and I’ve never been in this venue so I’m rather excited to see what the night will bring. We are city 5/7 on the UK & Ireland leg of their “Silence in the Snow” … Continue reading Live Review: Trivium @ Barrowland Ballroom 16/02/17

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

This is the penultimate Teviot Underground band night before the summer break (booooo!) and four acts are to grace our presence this evening. First comes the lovely Unkeepable.

Live Review: Lyndsey Craig, The Hecklers and Ryan Morcombe @ Teviot Underground 19/03/15

Words: The Captain It’s a Thursday evening, it’s just past 9:15 and I’m at Teviot Underground for another one of the fabulous weekly FREE gigs. First, we are treated to the wonderful Ryan Morcombe. The stage may be small, and he may be on his own, but he takes the stage and owns it. His vocals are strong and his guitar playing impeccable. With a … Continue reading Live Review: Lyndsey Craig, The Hecklers and Ryan Morcombe @ Teviot Underground 19/03/15

Live Review: SeaOfCrowns, Little Kingdom and Edgar. @ The Electric Circus 12/02/15

Words: The Captain It’s a chilly Thursday evening and I’m at another gig, armed with a notepad, pen and a pint of coke. First up are Edgar., a three piece hardcore pop band from Preswick (near Glasgow). They are an up-beat trio of awesomeness, with amazing stage presence. Lead singer/keyboardist Stuart greets everyone with a “Hi everybody!” (please read that bit in the voice of “Dr. … Continue reading Live Review: SeaOfCrowns, Little Kingdom and Edgar. @ The Electric Circus 12/02/15

This week 3 acts are to grace our presence and it’s going … Continue reading Live Review: Universal Thee, Colour Trap and Joe Allan @ Teviot Underground 15/01/15

Live Review: Let Love Rule w/ Redolent @ The Mash House, Edinburgh (07/11/14)

Originally posted on Through The Wire Music:
Words: Leah Curtis. It’s a Friday night and I’m in another venue that I’ve never been to before (getting lost on the way proves that). It’s a rather nice venue and after I get my glass of coke, I am “UV-ed up”. Why UV? You may ask. Well, this is Let Love Rule’s EP launch and UV Party, so… Continue reading Live Review: Let Love Rule w/ Redolent @ The Mash House, Edinburgh (07/11/14)
