Clean Cut Kid returned to Nottingham for a sold-out show at the Rescue Rooms, quickly curing the crowd of their Monday blues. Leeds 4-piece Marsicans started off the night, introducing their quirky grooves to the audience. Self-described as ‘upbeat indie meets dirty pop’, the boys beamed throughout their whole set, slowly but surely warming up the audience to their tunes.

Allison Weiss brought sunny Californian vibes to The Bodega

Grace Pownall/ February 22, 2016

On a misty and cold Friday night, Allison Weiss brought sunny Californian vibes to The Bodega, joined by fellow LA residents Yellowbirddd and Jenny Owen Youngs. The trio of singer-songwriters sang about love, life and sci-fi TV shows, interspersed with jokes and jests- what we Britons might label “witty banter”, without the laddish connotations. 60% music, 40% comedy. First up

For the final show of her first full UK tour, Shura stunned the audience of Rescue Rooms with her moody, melodic blend of pop, indie and synths. Lilting whispering vocals were supported by layers of bass, an electric drum kit, muted guitars, and scatters of space age sounds and samples coming from the various keyboards across the stage.
