Crisis address this through music, hosting this night with a top line-up, all of whom have given their time, without payment, to raise money for those who need it. And with a line-up consisting of Miles Kane, Emeli Sandé and Paul Weller, it’s certainly worth donating for.

Maximo Park t’s no secret that Maximo Park are a near-perfect live band. It’s also a well-known fact that they have made some of the best albums in UK indie within their 12-year career. This is reflected tonight at Shepherd’s Bush Empire- a setlist which does not heavily focus on their latest release ‘The National Health’, but instead provides a good dose of their discography which their fanbase cannot get enough of, judging from the unending movement in the venue.

Serj Tankian Walking into Shepherds Bush Empire on a cold Sunday night, hundreds of burly metalheads waiting for the almighty Serj Tankian were greeted by support act Viza, who happened to sound exactly like early System of A Down. With the sounds of the Middle East coming through due to their punchy beat and an ace oud-player, it is impossible not to hear SOAD’s work in these new boys. Nonetheless, their 40-minute set is met with huge applause and the knowledge that they’ve won over the crowd.
