Ciaran Lavery @ Rescue Rooms, 19/10/15

Gabriella Ahmed/ October 26, 2015

Indie folk is one of those genres which deserves more recognition. The bearded Irish beauty, Ciaran Lavery just summed up what is missing from the modern-indie scene.   The small gig in one of my favourite venues of Nottingham, Rescue Rooms, could have done with a better turnout honestly.

Barney and Friends child star, turned actress, turned singer, Demi Lovato has done it all. 5 studio albums later, she’s released her latest baby, her rebirth in the form of ‘Confident’.

Gabriella Ahmed/ June 17, 2015

His unique blend of post-grunge/rock and acoustics is something unheard of usually in this scene, and I had the rare opportunity to sample this the early Sunday afternoon before he waltzed

Charli XCX @ Rescue Rooms, 01/04/15

Gabriella Ahmed/ April 5, 2015

As all the teenage souls crawled themselves into the packed venue, I was a little surprised to say the least that they’d left the first act to come on stage and hour and a half after the doors had opened. I mean most these kids couldn’t even legally drink here, so they had to find some distraction in their selfies

The Subways @ Rescue Rooms, 29/03/15

Gabriella Ahmed/ April 1, 2015

Fashionably late as I was from the treacherous weather from the finest city in the Midlands, I annoyingly missed the first act Same Streets. From what I heard from outside, they sounded alright I guess, like any other guitar band: creating good music but failing to lack originality.
