Steve Winwood I declare I’ve been a big fan of Steve Winwood ever since Traffic’s appearance at Lancaster University in 1974. Yet tonight’s show is something of a mixed bag. Sat behind his Hammond Organ for the first three numbers it is clear that this ‘vintage’ seventy year old has lost none of his distinctive and distinguished vocal chops.

The Bronx A mere 30 yards away from Camden Town tube station, you come across a strange set of double doors they look like they lead to the ground floor of a block of offices. Only this time, the stairs lead you further down to the depths of one of London's most popular venues. I am in fact talking about the Electric Ballroom. Many incredible artists have played here such as Muse, Beck and George Ezra. But if you were to be present on the 10th June 2018, you would have been witness to large mosh pits and the screams of one Matt Caughthran. All of this, curtesy of The Bronx. A pure punk rock band from Los Angeles, California.

Frank Turner In a packed out Camden Roundhouse, just under 2,000 fans eagerly anticipated the grand entry of the greatest showman that is Frank Turner. And his entry is certainly epic as his band mate trips him over whilst running onto the stage, falling flat on his face. An extremely embarrassed Frank Turner curses and laughs at guitarist Ben Lloyd as he continues to start the show with the energetic and upbeat ‘1933’.

The Bluetones The Bluetones are one of those bands that seem to have been around forever. I remember first seeing them in the 90’s and I have had sporadic dalliances with them ever since. Tonight I am not alone in my admiration for this group of west of London musicians as the Plug in Sheffield is full and bouncing.
