While She Sleeps Double Feature + Interview

Sean Hubbard/ March 5, 2019

I’ve seen While She Sleeps 3 times in the past week and every single one of those shows has been a different type of insanity. First off, their Rock City show was the beginning of the UK leg of the tour and the entire show from top to bottom was a perfect example of modern heavy music, from French metalcore

John Grant @Rock City 05/02/2019

Sadie Agg/ February 8, 2019

As I reflect on my experience finally seeing John Grant at Rock City, I am honestly still lost for words. Grant was dramatic, eccentric and commanding; a true virtuoso. Arriving a little after 8:30, I grabbed myself a Red Stripe and found myself a suitable spot at the front. Although the cluster of over excited 40 year olds that surrounded
