Jon Gomm–Fibbers 17/09/13

Another night, another gig, another artist I know nothing about bar the short description on the what’s on listing. After a brief chat outside with tonight’s support, I head in to find Fibbers already inhabited by a bigger-than-average crowd and … Continue reading

Boss Caine–The Basement, 21/08/13

I believe that Mark Wynn is regarded highly in the acoustic singer/songwriter scene around York but, until tonight, he hasn’t really made an impression on me. Admittedly, I have only seen him once before, in a performance I described as … Continue reading

Hope And Social – Fibbers, 28/04/13

Two acts, diametrically opposed in terms of tone, that I will never tire of listening to share tonight’s bill. Much is made of Boss Caine’s somewhat dour demeanour and miserablist air but, in my opinion, he is one of York’s … Continue reading

Boss Caine – The Golden Lion, 22/07/11

Musically, it was quite a busy evening in York. The DV8 Festival had taken over the regular major venues for the whole weekend leading to, presumably, a horde of black-clothed Goths descending on the city. Over at the Knavesmire, Blondie … Continue reading

Hope And Social – The Basement, 25/03/11

It’s a sell-out at the Basement tonight as a favourite band (with all ages, judging by the audience) returns to York to headline what is being billed as an extravaganza. Sadly, one of the support acts, the excellent Dave Woodock … Continue reading

2011 – A Personal Preview

Friday 25th February: With no plans to attend a gig this weekend (never fear, though, I have one planned for Monday…), I thought I would treat my faithful reader(s) to a preview of which albums I’m looking forward to so … Continue reading

The Buccaneers – Fibbers, 21/01/11

Three weeks into 2011 and tonight should have seen the whole gang making their way to Fibbers for our first gig of the year. Sadly Andy’s engine decided to blow up, resulting in him missing a cracking night out. As … Continue reading
