Paramore Paramore came onto the stage to the high-pitched chants of "Paramore, Paramore". The curtains dropped, music blasted in and 'BOOM'. Lot's of happy kiddy-winks. What instantly becomes apparent when watching the Nashville pop/punk out fit is that their whirling dervish of a diminutive lead singer has got one hell of a voice. She's also got more energy than a box of frogs. She simply oozes the stuff. Needless to say the crowd went bonkers as Hayley, together with her shocking pink syrup, belted out hit 'Ignorance'. A great opener.

Less Than Jake It's been almost exactly two years since Less Than Jake's last UK tour, and it's always exciting to see them return. As one of the most energetic, entertaining, and downright fun bands around, they have a habit of delivering performances that put them in a class of their own. Needless to say, I couldn't wait to see what they could do this time round.

The Black Keys In a situation resembling that of the Amy Macdonald gig a week earlier, where I knew absolutely nothing about the artist, I had a similar dilemma with The Black Keys. This time however it was at the other end of the spectrum - I'd seen the duo from Akron Ohio, more times than you can shake a stick at! Reason being.... I love em! The fact that they are a two piece with so much more raw power than most four and five piece bands have, gets me every time. Dan with his growling vocal - akin to a young Paul Rogers together with his snarling guitar lines, ably complimented by Pat on the marauding drums is right up my strata. I make no bones about it. I love, love, love em. Consequently it's pretty hard to give a balanced, entirely objective view. By the powers vested in me as a professional journo however, by golly I'd try!

Lissie Lissie. Ahhhhh lovely Lissie, or as she's more formally known Elisabeth Maurus. You can't help but like the girl from Illinois, with her flowing blonde hair and inviting smile, It helps that she's got an array of absolute belting tunes too! "Happy Halloween" Lissie greeted the eclectic crowd who ranged from Radio 2 oldies, through to lip pierced Kerrangies as she opened with 'Here Before' - a melodic slow burner which from her 2009 EP 'Why are you Runnin?". Smashing.

SLAYER A lengthy queue has formed after our arrival, and swiftly grows out of sight around the corner, demonstrating that Slayers near thirty year history has diluted their appeal not one jot. This is clearly going to be quite some gig.
