Tubelord – White Rabbit, Plymouth // 18th October 2011

If I had a £1 for every time Tubelord have had to cancel a Plymouth date, I’d probably have about £3….3 times more than you’d want one of your favourite bands to cancel on you. Although I’m still making my mind up about album number two, it promises to be a great night with support from local heroes The Patrick James Pearson Band.

Hector Bizerk – Pivo Pivo // 21st October 2011

Would totally have gone for The Specials, but figured that was too predictable. Instead, this week’s pick is for Hector Bizerk’s sharp, snappy alternative hip hop. Fantastic live – can’t go wrong.
