Everyone should spend Valentine's Day with the love(s) of their lives. For many people, that's their girlfriends and boyfriends, for me, it's The Crookes. Before you feel too sorry for me, don't worry, I'm quite the ladies' man. Unfortunately, on this rare occasion, none of my many ladies wanted to attend the gig with me...

I manage to catch five minutes with charming frontman Tim Monaghan, as he tells me this is their 28th day on the road. The thing that struck me most when talking to Racing Glaciers is the modesty with which they regard their talents, as they play down their recent and upcoming successes – headlining a UK tour and releasing their second album next year...

As the lights dim, there's a ripple of excitement echoing around the room and the crammed venue's doors are slammed shut.

On a brisk October night in Edinburgh, a fresh smell of autumn is in the air. As we enter Liquid Rooms there is a slightly different, less pleasant smell. Nevertheless, walking down the venue's stairway our senses are drawn to that unmistakable post-hardcore pulsating drum beat...

Those who don’t know who Marcus Miller is, you’ve almost definitely heard him playing. In fact, if you’re a child of the ’70s or ’80s, there’s a high chance you were probably conceived to one of his basslines. Miller’s career reads like a Who’s Who of latter 20th century R&B – checking legends such as Herbie Hancock, Chaka Khan, Michael Jackson and Miles Davis...

Although not something Bob himself is particularly famous for, many a great performer pride themselves on audience participation, and this is where O'Connell shines. He frequently encourages us to fill in the gaps during some of the more popular choruses, which is welcomed by the yearning crowd...

As part of their Living Legends tour, hip-hop heavyweights ‘The Jungle Brothers’ make their second trip to Scotland to perform at La Belle Angele, a club that has recently re-opened after it was reduced to cinders during a vicious fire that swept through the local area over a decade ago…

A Liquid Performance by New Found Glory

Categories: Concerts, Entertainment     Tags: , ,
Interaction with the eager, energetic audience began well before genre defining pop punk band New Found Glory had even appeared on stage. The lighting was subdued, interlude music silenced and the air anticipatory. Essential sound checks were carried out and as strums of guitar chords could be heard backstage, the crowd clapped hands, stomped feet and cheered in excitement...

It's every teenager's dream: form a punk band at high school, get signed by a large label and tour the world. It certainly was mine, and that's exactly what the boys of All Time Low have done. Now I watch on with envy as the friends from Baltimore play a sell-out show at The Edinburgh Corn Exchange, which is their final gig before they are to perform at two of the UK's largest festivals: Reading and Leeds…
