White Denim return with two huge Oxford and Sheffield shows showcasing new record

Less than a year after their last album Performance, the ever-prolific White Denim returned in March with their eighth record Side Effects and have recently announced two huge shows in Sheffield on 31st July and Oxford August 2nd. More in line with the experimental, freewheeling spirit of their fan-favourite  record Last Day of Summer than anything else they’ve done since, Side Effects is a record that captures the essence of the band’s full-throttle live … Continue reading White Denim return with two huge Oxford and Sheffield shows showcasing new record

Festival Review: Camden Rocks 2019

It was an inauspicious start to my now annual trip to Camden Rocks Festival.  Liverpool Lime Street Station looked like a refugee staging post for badly dressed, stumbling Liverpool supporters.  Apparently, they won a football match the previous evening. The journey to London was uneventful and my train pulled into Euston only 15 minutes late.  A triumph for Virgin West Coast on a Sunday.  Two … Continue reading Festival Review: Camden Rocks 2019

Live Review: The Rah’s – Liverpool

If you come out of Liverpool Central Station and fight your way through the hordes of stag and hen do’s (literally on some occasions), make a couple of turns, and you’ll find yourself at Zanzibar.  If you are unprepared enough to not check stage times with the venue, you’ll also find yourself turning up three hours early for the band you’ve come to see.  Seriously, … Continue reading Live Review: The Rah’s – Liverpool

Festival Review: This Is Tomorrow 2019

For several years now, the North-East has been crying out for a major festival that takes the region by storm and brings some of the world’s finest to the area. This year’s This Is Tomorrow promised to do exactly that, with a stellar lineup including FOALS, Stereophonics and God himself, Noel Gallagher. We were lucky enough to be able to attend both the Saturday and … Continue reading Festival Review: This Is Tomorrow 2019

Little Miss Sunshine review – York Grand Opera House

Bringing film to the live stage is never an easy feat. Few have succeeded in recent times, but when they work, they’re pure gold. The first that comes to mind is the brilliant Shrek which translated wonderfully to the stage, so there was genuine intrigue when it came to viewing Little Miss Sunshine live at York Grand Opera House. The film, a comedy drama that … Continue reading Little Miss Sunshine review – York Grand Opera House

Single Review: The Snuts – All Your Friends

If you’ve read any of Halfway 2 Nowhere’s festival reviews in the last year or so, you’ll have read nothing but praise for Scottish band, The Snuts. Towards the end of May, the four-piece released their brand new single “All Your Friends” and I can comfortably say, whilst a change in studio sound for the band, it is one of the songs of the year … Continue reading Single Review: The Snuts – All Your Friends

Live Review: The Real People + The Cheap Thrills – Liverpool

The Rooftop of the Shankly Hotel has breath-taking views of the picturesque skyline of Liverpool.  It is best known as a venue for weddings.  Over the last twelve months or so it has established itself as a venue for live music. Under the stewardship of Keith Mullin, guitarist from The Farm, the ‘Signature Live Sessions’ are becoming ‘must see’ events combining new local bands with … Continue reading Live Review: The Real People + The Cheap Thrills – Liverpool

Festival Review: Hit The North 2019

May is one of my favourite months for a number of reasons. Two bank holidays, the climax to football season and so many different festivals up and down the country. Following a bumper day at Live at Leeds on Saturday 4th, it was Newcastle’s turn to host Hit The North. A festival that has grown significantly in its three years of running, this year’s lineup … Continue reading Festival Review: Hit The North 2019
