Live Review / Craig David’s TS5

Having listened to Craig David as a child and watched his career fade into the abyss, it is a surprise to both you and I that I found myself attending his most recent tour at the O2 Academy. Who would have thought we would see the return of Craig David? In his own words, ‘that… Continue reading Live Review / Craig David’s TS5

2017 / February Round Up

Two months down which means the second attempt at a blog post like this. February has been busy, especially with my 5-day trip home mid-way through and sorting out timetables and classes for my second semester at Spanish university. But of course, with this being a round-up, I should probably just get on with it... Music February… Continue reading 2017 / February Round Up

Year Abroad / A surprise trip

Hola mis cariños, hope you're all well. Last week saw me take a trip home to the UK for a few days... I've been in Zaragoza for over a month or so now, and at this time of year there is an annual festival to honour the Virgen del Pilar (the Virgin Mary of the Pillar).… Continue reading Year Abroad / A surprise trip

Year Abroad / Feeling sentimental about home

I was up late one night recently contemplating my move to Spain and ended up making a list of all the things that popped in to my head that I am going to miss when I actually go. Prepare yourselves, folks: (In no particular order, of course) My (now old) job and the wonderful people… Continue reading Year Abroad / Feeling sentimental about home

Live Review / Jack Garratt @ O2 Institute (8.04.16)

When Jack Garratt descended on Birmingham's O2 Institute on his latest tour, the entire evening became a celebration, both of the music and the man behind it. Or should I say, the man behind the drum machine contraption set up on stage. Seeing a master of his craft perform live is a delight, and this… Continue reading Live Review / Jack Garratt @ O2 Institute (8.04.16)

Live Review / Adele @ Genting Arena (30.03.16)

One only has to utter a single name and everyone is aflutter: Adele. The last few years have been wonderful for Miss Adkins, having received critical acclaim from every outlet possible the minute debut album, 19, was released in 2008. It is not that often you get to witness true talent on a firsthand basis, so… Continue reading Live Review / Adele @ Genting Arena (30.03.16)

Live Review / James Morrison @ Symphony Hall (14.03.16)

On his latest tour, James Morrison descended on a slightly more unusual venue: Birmingham’s gorgeous Symphony Hall. Considering how on previous occasions, the singer-songwriter has sold out academies and arenas across the country, it was a surprise decision, but one that worked surprisingly well. Support came in the form of up-and-coming acoustic singer Kelvin Jones,… Continue reading Live Review / James Morrison @ Symphony Hall (14.03.16)

Live Review / The 1975 @ Barclaycard Arena (22.03.16)

It seems these days that it is the ‘in thing’ to hate The 1975. Before NME were splashing their photos on their front cover, they named them the Worst Band of 2014, with indie Twitter seemingly awash with berating of the band and their material. Be that due to their outspoken frontman Matt Healy, their ever-so-slightly irritating… Continue reading Live Review / The 1975 @ Barclaycard Arena (22.03.16)
