Live review: Scouting For Girls, with Ben McKelvey and Aliensdontringdoorbells – Cheese and Grain, Frome. 23/10/2021

Celebrating the 10 year anniversary of their album Everybody Wants To Be On TV, scouting for girls stopped off in Frome as part of their MEGA 45 stop UK tour. When these guys tour, they tour hard.

Review: Our day at Dot To Dot 2021

Live review: The Lottery Winners with The Racket –Thekla, 07/09/2021

As a band that has not stopped pumping out new music, with banger after banger coming out, when I saw that The Lottery Winners would be playing in Bristol, I just had to see them live. First, what a venue for the band. Summer, dreampop songs and hot weather (and boy, it was hot) canContinue reading “Live review: The Lottery Winners with The Racket –Thekla, 07/09/2021”

Live review – The Gathering – Cheese and Grain, Frome. 07/08/2021

Saturday night saw the first run of the non-socially-distanced ‘The Gathering’ shows, from Frank Turner. A run of smaller, let’s-play-a-show type gigs, these were originally planned to be the first show’s post lockdown. As everything else over the last 16 months has shown, that didn’t quite happen, but I’m sure everyone there had a greatContinue reading “Live review – The Gathering – Cheese and Grain, Frome. 07/08/2021”
