Glass Animals at O2 Institute Birmingham – Gig Review

10th March marked a special date for fans of Glass Animals in the Birmingham area. It was about time for the band’s first ever headline show in the city. The venue was sold out and many fans were eagerly queueing up hours before the doors opened. Although the early days of March, this year, have been exceptionally warm, …

Justin Bieber at the Barclaycard Arena – Gig Review

Alternative Title: Why I Will Never See Justin Bieber Live Again! So I had no intention of ever attending a Justin Bieber concert at any point in my life. It’s safe to say that after last night’s drama and controversy, I have no intention of ever attending a Justin Bieber concert again! Oh, the irony …

Sundara Karma at the O2 Institute – Gig Review

By Michelle Martin Blood, sweat and tears would best describe last night’s experience. A lacklustre opening from a band, that, honestly I can’t even remember the name of; I do apologise for that. They performed their set list with little to no interaction with the audience. The fans also seemed disinterested on what was on …

G-Eazy at the O2 Institute – Gig Review

After the release of his sophomore album, When It’s Dark Out, and the huge success of his most recent single ‘Me, Myself and I’ featuring the powerhouse voice of Bebe Rexha, G-Eazy has embarked on a headline tour including 6 UK dates.

Review: Eliza and the Bear at O2 Institute

Last night, Eliza and the Bear performed at the O2 Institue and what a show it was. They kicked off their set with “Light It Up” from their 2014 album with the same name. This was the perfect way to start, with a catchy beat and well-known chorus it was definitely a crowd pleaser, but …

Bloc Party headline as the NME Awards Tour rolls into Birmingham

Indie rock veterans Bloc Party joined Bugzy Malone, RatBoy and Drenge for the Birmingham leg of the NMe Awards tour on Friday, Feb 12. There was only a modest crowd for the opening act of the night: grime artist Bugzy Malone. Almost notably disgruntled at the lack of people, Bugzy performed a loud and particularly raucous set …

The 1975: Review

Two days ago I shivered in a queue on a side street in Leicester, I stood in a room and felt like the oldest one there and got squished against a sea of crop tops and Mom jeans. I was at a 1975 gig, probably one of the most vast yet intimate gigs I went …

The Bohicas – Review

Tucked up in The Temple within Digbeth’s The Institute with lighting reminiscent of a year five disco, was a gig that was deserving of a much higher capacity and rowdier crowd. However, it’s these humble beginnings that can make a musician. It’s a time to show their personality to a modest crowd and prove themselves, …

Mac DeMarco 10th Sept – Review

By Charlotte Keogh The Institute in Digbeth is a cute venue anyway, but when you add a presence like Mac DeMarco and his hoard of hipster fans straight out of Urban Outfitters then it gets even cuter. Its small enough to be intimate without being crowded and its got a whole load of character. This …
