In true form for Norwich Arts Centre, their October calendar covers much earthly ground...

De-Stress Yourself

Kerry Radley knew how hard it was to calm her mind before she took up yoga in her 20s. Yoga was her saviour.

Black History Month

"Find out why blues, jazz and soul is so important to the history of British pop culture..." - Norfolk BHM brings a wealth of events to the region.

Q&As // All the Fun of the Fair

"I have grown my hair out and I am back in the Seventies with my side-burns on." - Rob Compton on preparing for his role...

The Only Way is (David) Essex

The month then ends with lots of Thirties glitz and razzle-dazzle as the very first stage tour of Top Hat comes to Norwich...

Roots Manuva // 4everevolution

"Regardless, I liken the phenomenon to that of eating doughnuts... impossible to eat without licking your lips." - The new Roots Manuva album has strange effects on Tommy Dog...

Hard Fi // The Waterfront - 21.09.11

"Suburban days are indeed upon us once again... and a little something for the weekend never hurt anyone, now did it!" - Steve catches Hard-Fi's return to Norwich...

Enter Shikari // UEA - 05.10.11

"In my opinion, are complete genius’ in the way they write and perform such genre-bending songs so seamlessly...." - High praise from Ellie at the Enter Shikari gig.

Liveline - Oct 11

"Get off yo’ ass and attend some of the following gigs because they will make your life better" - Gravy gives us a gig round up...

Martyn // Ghost People

"Even if you love house music, do you really want to get hyped up and frantic just before you empty the rubbish bin..." - Tommy Dog contemplates the appropriate setting for dance music.

Martin John Henry // The Other Side of Everything

"Ah dae like a sang sung en a Scortesh ucksent! Yeah, I’m the King of phonetics…"

Emily Barker and the Red Clay Halo // Almanac

"Twee flute? Check. Terrible plucked banjo? Check. Song about a witch? Yep, got that one covered too." - Something tells us BBV ain't a fan...

Justice // Audio, Video, Disco

"Their second full-length release starts with a He-man like wet dream. All heroism and might, it sets the tone for an album produced with comedy and inventiveness."

Lisa Hannigan // Passenger

"The album could easily see a second Mercury nomination for Hannigan, and will certainly see her step out from beneath Damien Rice’s shadow in full."

Feist // Metals

"Let’s just hope Diaggeo or the likes aren’t in the market for a new slice of Feist." - Emma hopes the new Feist record isn't sullied with commercialism.

Plaid // Scintilli

"Overall, Scinitilli presses a lot of my buttons, and you should let it have a poke at yours too." - See why Plaid have poked Bill's buttons...

The Ward

John Carpenter is back, and I mean actually making a horror film not just allowing his name to be jammed into the title. Will it be scary? God I hope so.

Bad Teacher

Comedy starring Cameron Diaz as the titular classroom role model. She’s hot, it’s funny, the film works for me.

Cedar Rapids

Ed Helms from the Hangover gets his own starring role in this comedy. Pretty funny stuff from Sideways’ Alexander Payne.

Life In a Day

Ridley Scott and Kevin Macdonald offer a day in the life of Earth, told using Youtube clips submitted from, well, everywhere, this creates a more-interesting-than-it-sounds documentary worth watching.

Real Steel

Rocky with robots. Surely there will be a montage, probably it will this time involve welding. Awesome!

The Three Musketeers 3D

The four (?) famous Frenchmen save France again, this time in 3d mostly facing the screen.

Hell and Back Again

Interesting and very personal look at being a soldier in and after Afghanistan, straight from the Sundance film festival.

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

Written by Guillermo Del Toro, this film promises genuine chills as a young girl moves into an old house to find something already living within its walls.

The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band // Peyton on Patton

"For those down with the bass, the slide and the wail, it’s a real Blues explosion." - Lizz reviews Peyton on Patton

X-Men: First Class

"Kevin Bacon plays a Nazi version of Kevin Bacon (who knew he could speak German) and everyone learns that in order make the most of their talents they must accept what they are and use it..."

Paranormal Activity 3

"This time the date on the camera is 1988, so we also know that the camera they are using will only have enough battery for an hour’s recording..."

Emika // Emika

"She says her main inspiration is the Dr Who theme tune (can’t argue with that one)." - Lizz reviews the Emika debut LP.

Interview with Bombay Bicycle Club - 2011

"Obviously the Puppet Theatre is the stand out gig, for where it was and because we were wearing puppets!" - Jamie from the band remembers Norwich fondly...

On Friday 30th September 2.30pm at Norwich Arts Centre, Norwich Sound & Vision have a listening panel who are ready to give their views on YOUR music.

Taking Back Sunday // UEA - 30.08.11

"From the word go, the Long Island 5-piece own the crowd and the stage and even in this large room, make everyone feel involved."

Interview with Taking Back Sunday

"I have a tooth tattoo, ‘cause I lost a lot of my teeth. It’s a shout out to the teeth I lost on tour" - Eddie Reyes chats to Outline

Interview with East 17

You know, if someone picks their toes at the start of the tour, it’s funny, but by the end of the tour, you wanna kill ‘em! - Tony Mortimer talks to Outline about the trials of touring...

Interview with Hard Fi

"The place was packed out, it was brilliant. It was a really nice feeling to know that people still gave a shit..."

The Duke Spirit // Bruiser

It takes a strong-willed man to tell the hypnotic beauty of Liela Moss that you want a little less of anything from her, or indeed her band, The Duke Spirit...

The Drums // Portamento

Rip it off fast like a plaster. Perhaps that’s the best way of approaching that ‘difficult second album’...

Ed Sheeran // Plus

It's hard to appreciate just how far Ed Sheeran's musical wave has swept across the world; he's always been so huge here that it's too tall to peek over the parapet...

Interview with The Duke Spirit

I’m always wrestling some kind of imaginary dragon on stage as well, so I’ll definitely be wrestling something...

Interview with Emmy the Great

“It’s not you, it’s… Him.” When the real Emma-Lee Moss had to deal with the very real situation of her fiancé trading their relationship for a life with God, she found herself broken...

Charlie Simpson // Young Pilgrim

Each song brings with it hints of different genres and its own set of emotion and feeling which is really what makes this album special.
