Olivia Morel/ December 5, 2018

I can only describe my experience as an absolute dream, as I had the opportunity to see Katie Melua grace the stage of the Royal Concert Hall last Monday.

Acoustic Rooms Weekly 03/12/18

Patrick Donnelly/ December 4, 2018

Kicking off the night was Elliot Willaims. Undeniably a strong singer – confident and loud, with an indie-rock style – he got the attention of the room straight away.

Midway through their UK tour, Holy Moly and the Crackers bought their unique blend of indie-folk rock to The Bodega last Thursday. Before their show, we had an opportunity to catch up with Conrad Bird, one of the band’s founders. First of all, and I’m sure you get this all the time, but why the name? Yes, we do get
