Tantric/Attic Theory/Rothschild – Sheffield, Mulberry Tavern – 29 November 2019

A coach across for the long round trip from Liverpool to Sheffield was in store for our resident gigaholic as he ventures out into freezing temperatures in only my usual patch shirt and band shirt to keep warm. The prize is the opening night of Tantric’s European tour and on guitarist Sebastian’s birthday no less, so Hugo tells us, with a few bands in support, including previous Singles Club feature choice Attic Theory.

Sumo Cyco/As Sirens Fall/Suburban – Manchester, Rebellion – 27 November 2019

A three band bill awaited our resident gigaholic in frequently visited venue Rebellion as Canadian punk metallers Sumo Cyco roll into Manchester, supported by Australian rapper Suburban and Keighley alt-rockers As Sirens Fall. Luckily the train issues our answer to Simon Calder had experienced the previous day are not repeated, so the journey was rather smoother across for something a little more feisty than the previous evening’s melodious warblings and guitar wankery had been.
