Royal Blood + Crawlers

Wednesday, June 19th 2024

Royal Blood wasted no time diving full throttle into head bangable smash hit “Out of the Black”, with drummer Ben even jumping into the crowd to open the pits himself.

Take That at Carrow Road or garage rock ‘n’ roll from His Lordship at the Arts Centre? It’s pretty obvious where Pavlis is gonna end up.

Czech National Symphony Orchestra

Monday, May 20th 2024

A wonderful full-orchestra evening


Friday, May 10th 2024

There’s high expectations of Fat Dog but they deliver and then some.


Wednesday, May 1st 2024

Post-punk/punk-funk legends prove themselves worthy of their status... and then some.


Saturday, April 27th 2024

Ex-Fallers show the pretenders what it is all about.

Swim School & Ziggarettes

Tuesday, April 23rd 2024

Swim School once described themselves as ‘Tesco value Wolf Alice’ on this occasion however it’s clear to see they will become more they just peers with Ellie Rowsell and co, Swim School can go to the very top.


Wednesday, April 10th 2024

The Hives still deliver the goods to a rocking LCR.

Brown Horse

Thursday, April 4th 2024

I’ve seen many, many bands since I’ve moved to this Fine City but tonight’s experience is quite possibly the greatest yet.

Goat Girl

Friday, March 29th 2024

Whilst we may have only had ten songs and a set that lasted forty-five minutes it was a set full of beautiful noise and powerful sounds

Damian Lewis

Thursday, March 28th 2024

A memorable evening on so many counts.

Sam Lee

Wednesday, March 27th 2024

The quality of the sound at the Art's Centre is always good, but it takes accomplished musicians to make it great. A tad more rockier and jazzier than on previous outings, his faultless ensemble complemented Sam Lee's distinct vocals superbly.

Declan Mckenna

Wednesday, March 27th 2024

It’s refreshing that Declan always sets out to make a statement with his music, and it resonates so strongly with young people. He has come so far since his debut single released at just 16, and I can only expect bigger things to come.

New Noise : Damp Matches

Tuesday, March 26th 2024

Guana Batz, Graveyard Johnnys & Stage Frite

Friday, March 22nd 2024

An early nite but it’s a cracker.

Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness

Friday, March 22nd 2024

The overall ethos of the band seems to be: any difficultly, no matter how horrendous and unjust, should be met with as much positivity and energy as it is possible to muster.

The Mary Wallopers

Wednesday, March 20th 2024

The endurance of much traditional music is linked to its ability to tap into deeper social and psychological currents. The Mary Wallopers may well be the most skilful and committed exponents of this approach currently active.

bdrmm, DEK

Friday, March 15th 2024

Feeder are greeted with rapturous applause as they enter the stage and launch immediately into opener ELF. It buzzes with excitement

Yard Act & Gustaf

Wednesday, March 13th 2024

Funky, post-punky rock ‘n’ roll is alive and well. And Pavlis didn’t mention The Fall once.

Bill Vine - Turbulent Flow

Monday, March 11th 2024

A masterful and moving performance of Bill Vine's latest composition

Spiers & Boden

Tuesday, March 5th 2024

A scintillating and crowd-pleasing set from folk legends Spiers & Boden, and wonderful to see the Maddermarket Theatre filled to the rafters


Monday, March 4th 2024

Heavy music is alive and well.

Echo & The Bunnymen and Erica Nockalls

Saturday, March 2nd 2024

Not as legendary as the reputation suggests and McCulloch thinks but far from bad. Erica Nockalls was superb, however.

Big Country / The Icicle Works

Friday, March 1st 2024

The seventh stop on Big Country's celebratory 'Return to Steeltown' tour.

Gilla Band and The Psychotic Monks

Tuesday, February 27th 2024

Two challenging and inventive bands, one of which Pavlis falls in love with, the other of which he fails to connect with.

Joanne Shaw Taylor

Monday, February 26th 2024

There may be bigger, seated, venues on this string of UK dates, but for the intimate, close-up feel of Joanne Shaw Taylor's brand of the blues, Norwich's Waterfront is going to take some beating.

The Zutons

Saturday, February 24th 2024

I may not the most impartial when it comes to the Zutons -. I was hooked as soon as I heard the first notes of Rumblin’ Ramblin’ back in 2002 in Liverpool - but I left the Waterfront on a high, feeling like I have spent the evening sharing a magic, precious moment with a long-lost friend.


Tuesday, February 20th 2024

Got a big jumper? Hairdo that hangs over your eyes? Groove like you’re being made to dance with your grandma at a wedding? Well then you probably enjoy Slowdive

999, L.O.A.D. & Hotwired

Friday, February 16th 2024

Good sets from 999 and L.O.A.D. but Hotwired killed it.

Bombay Bicycle Club

Monday, February 12th 2024

You Me At Six - Deaf Havana - Call Me Armour

Monday, February 12th 2024

David Eagle - Norwich Theatre Stage 2

Sunday, February 4th 2024

A superb one-man show from the accordion-wielding member of the magnificent Young'uns


Monday, January 29th 2024

Pavlis goes Dutch and it is good, very, very good.

The Clause

Monday, January 29th 2024

For sheer guts and dedication you had to admire this performance from The Clause

This Is The Kit

Saturday, January 27th 2024

All in all the night was a triumph of great musicianship, laughter, joy and beauty

SlamDunk Winter Jam Tour

Thursday, January 25th 2024

SlamDunk bring four bands to Norwich and it is mostly very good indeedy.


Monday, January 22nd 2024
