Ramblin’ Man Fair – Maidstone, Mote Park – 30 June 2018

July 21, 2018 // 0 Comments

Ramblin’ Man Fair – Maidstone, Mote Park – 30 June 2018https://ift.tt/2lcxr3m Set in the peaceful surroundings of Mote Park in Maidstone, Ramblin’ Man Fair is going strong now in its fourth year. Compared to its peers, Ramblin’ Man may still be a baby, but it is the fastest growing festival in the UK and for good reason. It has managed to draw some heavyweight classic rock acts to keep the punters returning year after year. The likes of Whitesnake, Extreme and ZZ Top have closed the Planet Rock main stage in recent years, with many acts playing an exclusive UK show and this year Mott The Hoople and The Cult followed suit.

Rosco’s Riot/Skypilot/Dead Addiction – Belfast, Limelight 2 – 14 July 2018

Rosco’s Riot/Skypilot/Dead Addiction – Belfast, Limelight 2 – 14 July 2018https://ift.tt/2NuwEH8 Apart from those of the marching variety, Belfast’s bands scene, in common with most other life in this corner of the Überverse, tends to fall fairly quiet in the period around the Twelfth of July, with many not venturing over their doors for the duration. However, this has been slowly changing in recent years, as Monk explains on the other side of the link: from Gig Reviews [read on]

Thunder/Hand Of Dimes/Cats In Space – Caerphilly Castle – 14 July 2018

Thunder/Hand Of Dimes/Cats In Space – Caerphilly Castle – 14 July 2018https://ift.tt/2LBX3T6 This had to be one of the biggest concerts in Caerphilly Castle. It was a sell out from the beginning of June, and the weather has been superb throughout June and July, so this probably helped in the ticket sales. However, people are going for the music. Thunder at Steelhouse last year and the Steelhouse double bill of Hand Of Dimes with Bernie Marsden had also helped. Add into this the third band, Cats in Space, who supported Deep Purple on the ‘Long Goodbye’ tour in Cardiff, and it looked like a no brainer for David [read on]

Doyle/Off The Cross/SLUTS – Belfast, Voodoo – 13 July 2017

July 17, 2018 // 0 Comments

Doyle/Off The Cross/SLUTS – Belfast, Voodoo – 13 July 2017https://ift.tt/2zMyC3Q It could be fair to say that when an artist is best known as a member of one of the most iconic rock ‘n’ roll bands of all time, one which probably has sold more T-shirts than actual records, they come with a certain amount of baggage, especially when the marketing collateral around one of their gigs heavily references their former association. So, it was no surprise to see that, when Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein pulled into UR’s home city, the fact that more than 50 per cent of the crowd were wearing Misfits T-shirts seemed to lead to [read on]

A fan reviews Ratt: “Pearcy has the stage moves of a homeless guy and the charisma of a Walmart stock clerk”   RATT COSTA MESA PACIFIC AMPHITHEATRE @ OC FAIR. July 13th 2018 By: Tyla Monroe   COSTA MESA, California —  Okay, since none of you fuckers are posting a half assed review I will. Ratt hit the stage tonight around 9 and played for about an hour. Make no mistake, this is Juan’s band now, and he made it known. He opened with an as yet uncategorized stage move that [read on]

MTXS/MSRY – London, 229 The Venue – 8 July 2018https://ift.tt/2LhOgW9 The thought of an underground venue in the current heatwave may have been slightly off-putting, but the thought of catching up with melodic hardcore newcomers MSRY on the penultimate date of their dual headline tour with MTXS proved a touch too much to resist for our resident gigaholic, and a handful of diehard faithful, as he now relates: from Gig Reviews [read on]

UR’s dynamic husband and wife duo were there to record the occasion in words in pictures: from Gig Reviews [read on]
