Daisy Carter/ April 2, 2019

Back at a sold-out Bodega again last night, this time to experience one of Aussie punks Amyl and The Sniffers’ reportedly manic live shows. Hailing from Melbourne, the band kicked off their European tour in what they called ‘Notting-ham’ ahead of the release of their debut album in May, which signals a move in a slightly more professional direction after

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

Shannon Millard/ March 26, 2019

On Saturday the 16th of March, myself and a few other Mic members were at electrifying new Brighton-based band Yonaka’s gig at the Bodega, here in Nottingham. The show was sold out, leading to the relatively intimate venue being packed with fans of all ages (well, 14+ at least). It was great to see such a variety of individuals keen

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

Three weeks after the release of their EP ‘Rose Tinted Soul’, The Half Eight hosted their EP release tour at Rough Trade with support from local singer Holly Fallon and pop-punk singer Bronnie.

Ben Standring/ March 21, 2019

One of pop’s most recognised voices speaks about collaborations, her solo aims and the music industry ahead of her sold-out show at Nottingham’s Rescue Rooms The pop industry can be a tough and, at times, horrible business to be involved in.

James @The Royal Concert Hall 12/03/2019

Alex Melnikov/ March 21, 2019

Touring their 15th album ‘Living in Extraordinary Times’, indie veterans James brought their show to Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall. On the face of it, an all seater venue seemed a strange choice for the concert, and also one that perhaps reflected a crowd in which I felt like one of the youngest in the room, but it played into the

Sports Team @The Bodega 19/03/2019

Daisy Carter/ March 20, 2019

 I’d never seen upstairs at The Bodega as packed as just before indie-rockers Sports Team graced its intimate stage for a sold out show on the second night of their UK headline tour. But that’s not to say the crowd were all there purely for them; the first support, Chappaqua Wrestling, were greeted by a decent amount of people who

Laura Garvin-Gomez/ March 9, 2019

At no other point have the quaint, monochromatic walls of Nottingham’s Rescue Rooms become so elated with colour and spectacle as on Friday, 1st March, when Gus Dapperton took to their stage. Marking his first ever UK tour following his recent breakthrough onto the Season 2 soundtrack for Netflix’s popular series, ’13 Reasons Why’, Dapperton aspired to introduce his character
