A blockbuster of a ballroom blitz!

Scouting for Girls - Rosie Smith - Charlie Starmer Smith

Monday, December 12th 2022

An incredible night of nostalgic throwbacks and new music. I encountered amazing energy and charisma from Scouting for Girls and have grown even more respect for them....always remember we should look forward to a new era of music from SFG.

Pavlis isn’t digging it but the final five songs make it all make sense.

Friday, December 2nd 2022

Another fine night from the glorious old warhorses of British Punk Rock ‘n’ Roll. 

Gong, Ozric Tentacles

Thursday, December 1st 2022

The chance to hear the swirling, sonic extravagances of two of the finest practitioners of spaced out, trance infused rhythms on the same night felt almost greedy, like breaking into a second box of chocolates when the first had already given you a sugar rush.

UK Foo Fighters

Sunday, November 27th 2022

I wasn’t sure what to expect this evening, I am a big fan of the Foo Fighters but personally I have never been interested in any tribute bands, why pay money to see someone try and be someone else, but I was keen to be proven wrong. UK Foo Fighters did not disappoint!!

John Ottaway and Wild Will Barrett

Friday, November 11th 2022

In sharp contrast to Otway's puppy like enthusiasm, Wild Willy Barrett mordant disinterest in Otway's buffoonery fails to disguise an obvious mutual affection. No one would seriously argue that Otway has been gifted with the finest singing voice, but he is a proper songwriter when he wants to be.

Unquiet - Carmen Villain with Manchester Camerata Ensemble

Bodega - Damp Matches

Wednesday, November 2nd 2022

Anoushka Shankar

Monday, October 31st 2022

This was one of only five outings for this world class collaboration, and I’m still scratching my head how we got on the short list. Whatever the reason, hats off to whoever at the Theatre Royal bagged with one.

The Wombats - Stone

Thursday, October 27th 2022

This evening was the perfect mixture of old classics and dance floor fillers, bringing you the very best of nostalgia, this is certainly a gig I won’t forget in a hurry!

The Hunna

Thursday, October 27th 2022

I feel The Hunna are a band I could see again and again and never get bored, they brought so much life and fun to Norwich and don’t take anything they do for granted- they are top role models for new artists in the industry.

Let's Eat Grandma

The night was absolutely euphoric ........ it was so fantastically fun and professional

Sports Team - Fat Dog

Sugar Babes

Friday, October 21st 2022

On another eventful day in UK politics, The Undertones deliver just the escape our Pavlis needs.

The Snuts – Heidi Curtis

Thursday, October 20th 2022

Wishbone Ash - Hardwicke Circus

Wednesday, October 19th 2022

Andy Powell tipped us off from the outset that we were in for the long haul, and so it proved with a mammoth two hour set that included their seminal album Argus played in full. He must have had the mathematicians in the audience scratching their heads at the youthful vigour of a man already grown up when it was released fifty years ago.

Kitty Perrin - Wild Paths

Tuesday, October 18th 2022

As soon as I got my wristband at the door of LPS and entered the building, the buzz of excitement for Kitty Perrin’s gig hit me like a crashing wave.

Acid Mother Temple

Turin Brakes - The Concrete Kid

Saturday, October 15th 2022

Beth Orton - Do No Harm - Hinako Omori

Saturday, October 15th 2022

Ellie Dixon

Friday, October 14th 2022

Ellie played multiple new songs throughout her set, giving the audience little teasers of new music she has coming out later in the year or early next year.

Femme De - Hex Friends - Cheap Teeth

Wednesday, October 12th 2022

Wild Paths day 2 and it just gets better and better

The Lemonheads - Bass Drum of Death

Nerina Pallot

Monday, October 10th 2022

Pavlis went with low expectation but enjoyed a damned fine night of poppy, punky, rock


Monday, October 10th 2022

Another glorious night at Voodoo’s, with a line-up that recalls the glory days of the much missed Owl Sanctuary.


Sunday, October 9th 2022


Thursday, October 6th 2022

A night of high-energy, cathartic music that provided a safe space for everyone regardless of gender, sexuality or race and what more can one want, really?
