Review of VUUR

Overall rating: 4.5 Verified review

Great band. One of the best metal bands I’ve ever seen. Anneke has a great voice and it was great meeting her at the end.

Overall rating: 3 Verified review

would have been better if there was a larger crowd. Also found the music a little heavier than I was expecting.

Amazing night! I've been a few times to this event. The only thing different this time was it wasn't as busy for some reason.

Brilliant Shellac gig. Staff were friendly and efficient, bar prices low, sound system great, a really interesting support act in Iona Fortune. Shellac delivered industriously as always whilst not taking themselves too seriously, bigging up Birmingham (bless you) and ensuring a great experience for all; a brilliant night out, thanks!

Review of This Is Tmrw Presents Shellac

Overall rating: 3.5 Verified review

The asylum/madness schtick at the venue is stigmatising and offensive. If you haven't been, this includes barstaff in white coats, straitjackets on the walls and grotesque 'brain surgeon' caricature art. Having spent the day before working with traumatised survivors of the actual mental health system, this felt particularly shocking. As the venue for a show by punk band with progressive politics, this struck a really duff note. I hope that promoters, bands and gig-goers will prompt the venue to rethink this theme - if anyone is under the illusion that this is comicbook shorthand for 'edgy', then maybe read some actual comicbooks. They're 30 years ahead of this crap. For a more detailed argument please see: https://medium.com/@MarkOneinFour/tropes-vs-people -with-mental-health-difficulties-b9c8a4d33b54
