Chuck Ragan Tucked away, so far from the merch, in the Temple Room of the Institute you would have found me huddling into myself for warmth.

Chuck Ragan Coming into the gig Billy the Kid was somewhat of an unknown to me but like all Chuck Ragan gigs the support never disappoints. Ever since The Revival Tour days you could always guarantee if you hadn't heard of the the other acts before, you would end up loving them before you left, and Billy The Kid is no different. A shy but confident woman took to the stage with just an acoustic guitar and microphone and eases her way through a great performance. It's safe to say I will be going home and listening to some more of her music.

The Revival Tour The Revival Tour is not your typical gig, there are no supports, it’s just 3 hours of tag team stripped down music with the show kicking off with everyone on stage. Nine musicians and a host of instruments on the tiny stage that is The Other Room, at Birmingham Ballroom, made for some jostling about. There is no designated headliner and everyone pitches in on each other’s sets and so you’re guaranteed to see something you won’t ever get on another tour.

Frank Turner It’s been a couple of months now since I last spent an evening enjoying the company of Mr Frank Turner and it’s fair to say he’s obviously gone up in the world since his autumn 2009 tour. Back in 2009 I went to see him in Wolverhampton with a couple of songs in my head and a budding interest in the self proclaimed ‘Skinny, half-arsed English country singer’ and his unique brand of folk/punk. Since that show, I’ve become a bona-fide Frank Turner fan, and Sunday’s gig in the more prominent venue of Birmingham’s O2 Academy 1, was absolutely phenomenal!
