Live Gig Video: Muse release August 2013 performance of ‘Futurism’ from Tokyo Zepp

By on Tuesday, 23rd December 2014 at 4:00 pm

As a Christmas gift to their fans, Muse have revealed this rare performance of their ‘Origins of Symmetry’ bonus track ‘Futurism’, played at a show in August 2013 at Zepp in Tokyo, Japan. Up to this point, it had been some 10 years since it last had a public airing. It was announced previously that the entire gig at Zepp had been filmed, so Musers can expect a live DVD sometime in the future. For now though, watch the spectacle that is Muse live below. You can also download the performance video from this handy link as well.



Live Gig Videos: Little Comets perform ‘Violence Out Tonight’ and ‘Joanna’ at the Hamilton in Washington, DC

By on Monday, 6th January 2014 at 4:00 pm

In case you missed it last summer, after 4 long years of waiting, I finally got to see Newcastle band Little Comets in my hometown of Washington, DC. They impressed me so much, landing at the very top of the heap of my Top Gigs of 2013 list. I also got to chat with Rob Coles and Matt Hall from the band backstage after their great show at the exceedingly lovely Hamilton, just a short walk from the White House.

As many of you know, I am a sharer, especially when it comes to spreading the word on bands on love. It sucks when you live far away and/or in another country where your favourite bands are playing. With that, I bring you live videos from the DC show: the socially conscious ‘Violence Out Tonight’ from second album ‘Life is Elsewhere’ and debut LP crowd pleaser ‘Joanna’. Enjoy them both below. Ah, memories!

Live Gig Video: Sweet Baboo performs ‘Motorhome’ at Green Man Festival 2013

By on Monday, 21st October 2013 at 4:00 pm

Stephen Black, beloved to many people including yours truly under his stage name Sweet Baboo, appeared at this summer’s Green Man Festival. If summer is feeling as far away to you as it does to me at the moment – I mean, come on, you walk into shops now and they’ve got Santas and Christmas ornaments on display, it’s ridiculous – this video from August will do you a world of good. Black performing the ultra sweet ‘Motorhome’? Yes, please. (It reminds me of my Scottish holiday in May when I saw the man at the famous King Tut’s of Glasgow and met him as well. Ah, the memories.) Watch it below.



Live Gig Video: Little Comets perform ‘Jennifer’ in New York City for Relix

By on Friday, 11th October 2013 at 4:00 pm

The North East’s latest act to break America Little Comets, who I had the pleasure to see gig at the Hamilton and chat with when they stopped through DC in August.

Just 2 months after the release of ‘Life is Elsewhere’ on American indie Dualtone Records, they’re coming back this way to America in a couple days, and I couldn’t be happier for them. (Admittedly, I’m just sad they can’t come to Washington again!) Here is live video they’ve shared of their time visiting with Relix while in the Big Apple. Performing ‘Jennifer’ in a water heater shack on a rooftop never sounded so good. Watch the video below.
