Combining extremely skilful musical mastery with a fun and entertaining stage show, without going overboard, was highly enjoyable. Though, Delain might not feature heavily in my daily playlist, the concert was very special.

Jojo Mayer Nerve’s concerts are always very special and the Sheffield one was no different. Happy to chat with fans before and after the gig, there was a close connection between audience and performers.

The Hyena Kill are a young duo from Manchester that always give it their all at concerts.

Playing to a handful of people on a Sunday night, they absolutely rocked their butts off, which was much appreciated.

Both Corinne Bailey Rae and Jodie Abacus came out with such a tremendous amount of positivity and happiness that they mesmerised everyone from the off.

This is normally not the music that I listen too, but the concert was one of the highlights of my year.

This concert was absolutely mental, from the singer and lead guitarist riding a roady to the middle of the mosh pit while smashing beer cans on his head and spraying the audience to warm up act Crobot’s singer jumping on their guitarists shoulders for half a song. Too much good beer was spilled, but all in the name of rock’n’roll.
