JACK WHITE / FIRST DIRECT ARENA, LEEDS – 17TH NOVEMBER 2014

On Monday 17th November 2014, I sat and watched as living proof of the colossal power of rock n roll was demonstrated in front of me and 13,000 other people at the First Direct arena in Leeds, when Jack White took to the stage with his band and smashed their way through a string of his…

Foals / Alexandra Palace, London – February 14th 2014

Since their debut album, Antidotes, was released back in 2008; I’ve been wanting to see Foals live. It only took me 6 years but last week, I witnessed one of the most incredible gigs I think KNOW I’ll ever see. Despite not being right at the front like a true little fanboy/girl would; I could still…

London Grammar / O2 Academy, Leeds – Wednesday 12th February

Close your eyes; think of a moment when you felt the hairs on your neck stand like soldiers commanded to attention. If this moment was too long ago then I suggest you buy a ticket and go see the wondrous, three piece, Nottingham originated, London Grammar. The discovery of London Grammar came later than it…

Palma Violets / Lincoln Engine Shed – 19th November 2013

I’d been looking forward to seeing Palma Violets since enjoying their debut album; 180 which was released earlier this year. By the end of the night, I’m glad it only cost me a little over a tenner to see them. Here’s my review of one of the most disappointing gigs I’ve ever been to (and I’ve…

HIM / Nottingham Rock City – 26th October 2013

It’s Saturday the 26th of October 2013 at Nottingham’s, Rock city and Mojo20 find themselves in a room, absolutely filled to capacity with adoring and loyal fans to one of Scandinavia’s biggest exports. Twenty one years after beginning, H.I.M is in the middle of an international tour following the release of their eighth studio album…

Swim Deep & Disclosure / Latitude Festival 2013

It was a few weeks ago now, and it seems a lot longer, but Latitude 2013 was definitely the highlight of my summer. Scrap that, my YEAR. Seeing as it may have lost some relevance due to the time delay (sorry, I’ve just been like soooo busy!) I won’t dwell on the festival itself for…

Mr.Scruff / Lincoln Engine Shed – 17th May 2013

I don’t know whether you call it a gig, but I’m not sure if it was considered to be just a DJ set. Whatever you’d refer to it as, it was unique, it was one hell of an experience, and it was pure brilliance. On May the 17th 2013, the living legend embarked on one of…

Alt-J(∆) / Nottingham Rock City – 13th May 2013

‘∆’ is what you get when click alt and j on a MacBook. Alt-J will now conjure up very different images in your head though. The four-piece band from Leeds have had a phenomenal time since the release of debut album, ‘An Awesome Wave’. Since first single, Breezeblocks, was released in May 2012, I’d been…

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club / Rock City – 29th March 2013

Black Rebel Motorcycle club have been one of those bands who release nothing but brilliant albums. I’ve been a fan for as long as I can remember. Friday 29th March would see me going to see the band live for the first time. Did i enjoy it? Yes. Was the band good? Really good. Was…

The Unknown Stuntmen / The Strait & Narrow – 5/12/12

Most would imagine that if you want to soak up some culture, or enjoy truly great live music; Lincoln may not be your first choice. Normally much larger cities as London, Nottingham or Leeds might be the place to go, and although Lincoln has its great points, I’d tend to be of this opinion. Wednesday the…

Haim / The Bodega – 16th November 2012

Friday the 16th of November 2012, saw Mojo20 return to the Bodega Social Club in Nottingham to witness another live performance, by another new, up and coming act that since the release of their debut EP ‘Forever’, we’ve followed and adored. With expectations high, we joined the rest of the crowd and pushed to the front to…
