Live: Testament, Brooklyn Bowl, London

Live: The Melvins, The Koko, London

Never being a band to disappoint live, The Melvins were set with a headline performance that sadly never happened with the collapse of Temples Festival.

Killit and LA Guns join forces for a night of pure rock n roll. The Underworld in London is waiting to go back in time and look like one of the venues of the Sunset Strip in 1987.
