Sunday, August 24th 2014

At their skanking, skatistic best.

Vain // Waterfront, 06.07.14

Tuesday, July 15th 2014

Shameless rock 'n' roll the old fashioned way.

The Thinking Men // NAC 11.07.14

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

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...
