Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres @ Rock City 11/05/19

Sadie Agg/ May 14, 2019

Last month, former Libertines and Babyshambles frontman Peter Doherty introduced us to his third musical project, ‘Peter Doherty and The Puta Madres.’ Doherty’s latest work is a lot folksier than his previous repertoire, demonstrating inspiration from his new Margate abode, and includes fantastic Doherty-esque instrumental interludes illustrating the individual musical talents of each Puta Madre. Arriving at 7:30, I managed

Phoebe Wade/ May 2, 2019

On Sunday afternoon, before the penultimate night of their ‘Trust’ tour with Papa Roach, I sat down with guitarist of Nothing More, Mark Vollelunga, to discuss tour, crowd response and the appeal of the breakfast taco. He was an absolute delight to talk to and didn’t seem to mind that this was clearly my first interview! So you’ve been touring

Papa Roach @ Rock City 28/04/19

Phoebe Wade/ May 2, 2019

‘You know what? Best night of the motherfucking tour.’ This is what Jacoby Shaddix, vocalist for the Californian quartet, proclaimed during the encore of their sold out show at Rock City on Sunday night, and with good reason. Never having seen Papa Roach, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had, however, seen the support, Nothing More, back in 2015,

Bear’s Den @ Rock City 09/04/19

Cameron Chadwick/ April 19, 2019

Indie folk lads turned arena rockers Bear’s Den balanced the intimacy of their early material with the seismic sounds of their later tunes at their most recent outing at Rock City. Bear’s Den turned a pretty significant page with their last album, ‘Red Earth & Pouring Rain.’ Similarly to their close associates Mumford & Sons, no longer were they North

Sean Hubbard/ April 1, 2019

Skarlett Riot headlined Ike Showcase week with the Nottingham leg of their ‘REGENERATE’ tour, celebrating the release of their 2017 album of the same name. For a rather underground band, there was an impressive audience in attendance, with several sporting the band’s merchandise, demonstrating that while they may not have the biggest fan base, it cannot be denied that they

Kathryn Long/ March 23, 2019

Online sensation Dodie, also known by her YouTube handle ‘Doddleoddle’, breaks the stigma and proves that YouTubers can have a successful career out of YouTube! As a fan since 2014, I was eager to see her as she came to Nottingham’s Rock City on March 20th in support of her new album ‘Human’. As soon as I arrived, the queue

Kathryn Long/ March 23, 2019

After shooing the rest of their band out of the small backstage room filled with snacks, Jim and Dan from KAWALA sat down with me outside of their busy tour schedule supporting Dodie. We talked about their brand new EP, favourite venues, and an interesting pre-show ritual… How are you, is the tour going well? Jim: It is going very

Stiff Little Fingers @Rock City 13/03/2019

Lucy Gray/ March 16, 2019

Punk is a style I find has become all too underrated, but on this particular Wednesday at Rock City, some us were lucky enough to see four members of punk’s political origins in Stiff Little Fingers. Having only previously listened to a few songs, it doesn’t take much for the band’s message of political anger to come through, and one

The Stranglers @Rock City 11/03/2019

Bethan Fletcher/ March 12, 2019

It was clear walking into Rock City that a twenty-something university student is not The Stranglers’ target demographic. Despite bringing the average age down by twenty years and severely missing a band t-shirt, leather jacket and pint of ale, I made my way up to the main stage to experience some classic 70’s/80’s punk rock. Dr Feelgood opened the show
