Sigur Rós – Eden Project, 30 June 2013

Caitlin Rose – Dingwalls, 27 February 2013

Witty, funny and friendly Caitlin… And so good. So damn good. She seemed a little different on stage, more confident may be? There was a great mixture of new songs, old favourites and the best sing-along ever! I didn’t particularly … Continue reading

The Be Good Tanyas – Barbican, 3 February 2013

  Note to self: when The Be Good Tanyas are next in town, get tickets. When they’re playing in a town nearby, get tickets. When they’re playing in a town anywhere, get tickets. It’s funny how things work out. A couple … Continue reading
