The Dickies // Owl Sanctuary, 14.08.14

Friday, August 8th 2014

Hell, yes!

Cerebral Ballzy, Bloody Knees & Volunteers // Epic 05.08.14

Vain // Waterfront, 06.07.14

Tuesday, July 15th 2014

Shameless rock 'n' roll the old fashioned way.

The Thinking Men // NAC 11.07.14

Four local acts ranging from promising to bordering on great.

Young bloods do themselves proud

Brian Jonestown Massacre & The Vacant Lots // Waterfront, 02.07.14

Monday, July 7th 2014

Brilliant band, excellent show, we were lucky to have them.

Gary Numan // The Waterfront // 25.6.14

Monday, June 30th 2014

Gary Numan is a regular visitor to our Fine City, but on this occasion he played the Waterfront rather than the UEA as he has done previously. The more intimate venue made for overpowering set, with Numan so close you could see the smudges of his eyeliner

BK & Dad, The Grazing Saints & Colossus // Epic, 21.06.2014

Monday, June 23rd 2014

Feel the noise!

Melt Banana & MFOTWU // Norwich Arts Centre // 29.05.14

Friday, June 20th 2014

Two memorable performances at NAC...

Polyphonic Spree // Waterfront // 09.06.14

Friday, June 20th 2014

They had us eating out of their hands from R.I.P. Rik Mayall.

Hugh Masekela & Andy Sheppard // Theatre Royal // 21.5.14

Friday, June 20th 2014

Hugh rocks the Theatre Royal

Pony Up // NAC, 07.06.14

Saturday night at the Arts Centre and Pony Up presents five acts for three quid.

Night Engine, Keep Up, There's Someone In The Pond & The Rumble // OPEN, 02.06.14

Thursday, June 5th 2014

A Monday night and we’re here at OPEN for four promising groups.

Paolo Nutini // 02.06.2014 // UEA

Wednesday, June 4th 2014

Nuitini shares his pencil full of lead with Norwich fans

Awolnation // The Waterfront - 31/05/2014

Monday, June 2nd 2014

It’s a warm Saturday night at The Waterfront, and from the offset, everyone here seems to be buzzing. Headliners tonight, LA’s own, Awolnation seem like the perfect band to start off the Saturday antics.

Thumpers, Cut Ribbons & Mega Emotion // Epic, 31.05.14

Sunday, June 1st 2014

Why such a small turn out for such a great show?

Cathedral choir by Candlelight // Norwich Cathedral 23.05.14

Wednesday, May 28th 2014

Choir by candlelight at the Cathedral

S. Carey // Norwich Arts Centre, 21.05.14

Thursday, May 22nd 2014

The music is amazing; at times whisper-soft and delicate, building to tribal double drums...

Clutch // The Waterfront - 02.05.14

Wednesday, May 14th 2014

Often lazily tagged as a stoner rock band, it’s fair to say in 2014 they are simply a great rock ‘n’ roll band.

Barrence Whitfield & The Savages // Norwich Arts Centre, 01.05.14

Wednesday, May 14th 2014

'I’m Sad About It' and 'Hangman’s Token' were sensational – ass kicking, hell raising, down ‘n’ dirty stuff.

Ben Watt + Bernard Butler // Norwich Arts Centre, 23.03.14

Wednesday, May 14th 2014

The man behind Tracy Thorn’s delectable vocals, whilst not the greatest vocalist that you will ever hear, has once again written a very charming album.

De La Soul // The Aquarium, Lowestoft, 09.05.14

Monday, May 12th 2014

De La Soul Live Seaside Spectacular!

Patent Pending // The Waterfront, 29.04.14

Thursday, May 1st 2014

“The Whiskey, The Liar, The Thief” serves itself perfectly as a point of view for this review, since the entire evening can be summarised by the three subjects in the song’s title.

New Model Army // The Waterfront, 27.04.2014

Wednesday, April 30th 2014

The old dogs teach the young pups a lesson.

Blood Red Shoes // Waterfront 29.04.2014

Wednesday, April 30th 2014

Tired but mostly happy.

Horace Andy // Norwich Arts Centre, 18.04.14

Monday, April 28th 2014

Like many of the older reggae artists Horace’s voice sounded absolutely perfect – sweet, delicate and soulful.

Alkaline Trio // The Waterfront 16.04.14

Tuesday, April 22nd 2014

To some ‘emo’ may be a dirty word, but not to these guys. After celebrating fifteen years together in 2011, Alkaline Trio returned to The Waterfront to an almost sold out show.

Walk Off The Earth // The Nick Rayns LCR, UEA - 04.04.2014

Wednesday, April 16th 2014

They brought their whole bag of tricks; lights, confetti canons, giant balloons falling from the rafters, smoke canons...

Stiff Little Fingers // The Waterfront - 26.03.14

Monday, April 14th 2014

Jake explained featured lyrics written in 1983 after a night on the town with Phil Lynott! Oh to have been a fly on the wall that night…

The Toy Hearts // Arts Centre 08.03.14

Tuesday, March 18th 2014

What I mistakenly took for rockabilly gals jumping on a bandwagon, turned out to be dedicated musicians with history in both types of music. Country and Western.

Bombay Bicycle Club // UEA - 09.03.14

Thursday, March 13th 2014

If you ignore the faux fervour, the frequent live line-up changes and the nagging feeling that many songs sounded uncannily similar, Bombay Bicycle Club put on a hell of a show that had me utterly enthralled for the best part of an hour.

Kerrang Tour 2014 ft. Limp Bizkit - UEA, 17.02.14

Tuesday, March 4th 2014

If you fall into the category of being on the cusp of puberty or not quite being a fully fledged adult as the previous Millennium, you’ll remember the L.I.M.P Bizkit.

Pharoahe Monche // NAC - 24.02.14

Sunday, March 2nd 2014

Norwich, get the fuck up

Wilko Johnson // Waterfront 01.03.2014

Sunday, March 2nd 2014

A legend delivers.
