Shed Seven Shed Seven - Still Going For Gold in Shedcember 2019, Massive Homecoming Yorkshire Gig at Leeds Arena. Without doubt the biggest band from York has to be Shed Seven, and as a loyal Yorkie I’ve seen them play in some of the smallest pubs and clubs in the city since they first got together, watched them lose the Battle of the Bands competitions, twice and also saw them play plenty of amazing shows at Fibbers and The Barbican in York. It smarts a bit that they choose Leeds as their big homecoming gig on the Shedcember tour this year.

McFly "I know what you’re thinking, McFly just got sexier" - Dougie Poynter McFly are back, people, and they are on fire! I’m not just referring to the pyrotechnics here, the pop-rock band made fan’s dreams come true by reuniting for an awesome ‘one night only’ gig at the O2 Arena in London on Wednesday night. The whole evening was filled with sing-your-heart-out classic tunes, such as ‘Obviously’ and ‘Star Girl’, bad jokes, "You wanna hear a joke? I’m a professional musician!" (by Dougie) and catchy new songs. It was everything you would want from McFly.

Lankum I hadn’t heard of Lankum until a few weeks ago, when I read a five star review of their latest (and third) album ‘The Livelong Day’ in a music magazine. I checked-out some of their songs and they sounded great: I also found some more rave press reviews, all of them four or five star. So I’ve grabbed the opportunity to see Lankum live at Leeds.

Adam Ant Adam Ant - Friend or Foe? He’s Still A Dandy Looking Highwayman! Tonight I had several flashbacks to very late 70’s school discos with the punks, rockers, skaboys and new romantics all dutifully dressed up in their tribal costumes, and at some point during the night ‘Antmusic’ would be played and we’d all kind of enjoy it, we probably all had a copy of the ‘Kings of the Wild Frontier’ album - whether we admitted it to our affiliated tribe or not!

Warmduscher It’s 60-plus years since rock’n’roll was invented and a lot of ‘new’ music just sounds like something you’ve heard before. So how great is it when you hear something that jumps out at you and says "Hey! You’ve not heard stuff like this before". And so it is with Warmduscher. Well strictly speaking you may have heard this music before but not all in one band, as Warmduscher seem to have incorporated a whole range of genres and styles in one.

Weyes Blood Weyes Blood (the working name of US singer, songwriter and musician Natalie Mering) released her fourth solo album ‘Titanic Rising’ to critical praise earlier this year. The lush album is superficially an easy listen, dominated by beautiful melodies and her languid golden voice, but underneath lie sober lyrics about the state of things and the human condition. Tonight at Manchester she plays to a sold-out Club Academy: back in 2007, she tells us, she first played in Manchester to just a handful of people.

Dream State It was now time for Dream State to take to the stage. CJ appears first from behind the curtain and before I knew it the rest of the band were on stage but I didn’t see them appear due to someone having a rather happy trigger finger on the smoke machine so it was near impossible to see them.
