The Sherlocks Gig Review

On Monday night, I ventured from my room and for one night left my assessments behind me. My friend Hayley and I made our way to the gig, we first bonded over our mutual Blossoms love. She introduced me to The Sherlocks music, how could I not like a northern band with a Courteneers persuasion? With tickets for £9 and an excuse for a night out, we headed to Fibbers. A venue near uni in York that we usually associate with clubbing, it is only the second gig I’ve managed to go to in York during uni time, so it was a bit of a treat. It was quite a surreal experience going into a ‘club’ stone cold sober and being surrounded by underage teenager on the pull, I’ll get back to that later. I really enjoyed their set and I am definitely looking forward to hearing more stuff from them, certainly one to watch! Continue reading

blossoms gig review

At the end of my You Me at Six gig review, I mentioned wanting to get tickets from the sold out Blossoms show which I managed, and I’m so glad I did. Using Twickets, a site I have gone to a few times and super recommend for buying gig tickets second hand reliably for face value or less. So, once again Ellie and I ventured into London, this time to Shepards Bush, to see Blossoms properly for the first time. We caught the tail end of their Reading set in the summer which inspired my enthusiasm and made me commit some time and attention to their music. Last night just added to my Blossoms excitement.

you me at six gig review

Back again with another post! It’s been a fun-filled weekend, first the market and now a gig, plenty of blog material. So, into the good bit, I went to see You Me at Six play last night in Dingwalls with one of my oldest friends Ellie (she will feature below) and it was one of the best gigs we’d both been too in ages. A bit of background is necessary, Ellie and I have been huge YMAS fans for as long as I can remember, seeing them at least once a year since 2011 and nearly never disappointed with the show they put on. Safe to say we are fairly dedicated fans, we managed to catch them earlier this year during their secret set at Reading on the Pit stage and I also got tickets with my uni flatmate for the Leeds show, as she’d never seen them before. I’ve had a pretty You Me at Six packed year and last night’s show was the last one they’re playing in 2016, and I’m so pleased to reply they finished on an absolute high. Continue reading

twenty one pilots gig review

Yesterday my sister, Eleanor, and I both came back from uni to spend a weekend at home and see twenty øne piløts play Alexandra Palace on November 11th, here’s a link to the setlist if you’re interested. We both managed to see them earlier on in the year playing the  NME stage at Reading festival and they were hands down one of my favourite shows of the entire weekend. Coming up against some hot competition, including rock giants like Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Biffy Clyro, a band I had been waiting to see since my very early teens. So, as you can imagine, after that show our expectations were very high and I’m disappointed to report back that they did not fulfil said hopes. Continue reading
