Here we have Shields doing a pre-gig session before the Gigwise Presents show at Shacklewell Arms in Stoke Newington. They produced a fantastic set to a packed out crowd and lit up a dull Tuesday evening for anyone that witnessed their mind blowing pop architecture!
Gigwise are proud to be the only non-print publication nominated for ‘Best Music Media Brand’ in The Music Week Awards 2013. The other finalists in the same category areClassic Rock, Gigwise, The Fly, Kerrang, Mojo, NME and Q.
This will be the first time a non print publication has been selected as a finalist for this category. Michael Baggs, Gigwise Editor said:“To be recognized alongside some of the biggest and most respected names in UK music publications is a brilliant result for Gigwise, especially as the only nominee without a print edition. Everyone who contributes to the website is extremely pleased with the MusicWeek nomination.”
The Music Week Awards takes place on the 11th April 2013 at the Brewery venue in Central London.
Gigwise presents got underway with Newcastle rockers Shields taking the headline slot with support from Good Dangers to a packed out crowd at the Shacklewell Arms in London on Tuesday evening.
A band filling to the brim with beautifully crafted guitar riffs sprinkling with a dash of sharp head thumping pop songs. Included in the set were songs like ‘All I Know’ and ‘A Simple Answer’ and of course the wowing cover of SBTRKT’s ‘Pharaohs’.
Yes, the one and only cheeky chappy cockney we all love - Danny Dyer, popped in to chat with our Entertainmentwise ‘Popdash’ presenter Sugapuff about his new film ‘Run For Your Wife’. Check out the hilarious results here…
The Viscount of Weymouth’s wife to be, EmmaMcQueen (real name EmmaMcQuiston) has a new cookery show on EntertainmentWise.
The future Lady Bath, who is due to wed Viscount Weymouth next summer, trained at Lamda before undergoing an array of cooking courses. Her talent and personality has attracted the attention of online media publishers who have subsequently given her a platform to showcase her culinary genius to a worldwide audience.
Emma, who grew up between London and Wiltshire, learnt to cook from her mother who has a love for English traditional cuisine, and hails Delia Smith’s ‘How to cook everything’ as her ‘kitchen bible’. Her interest in the science of food, nutrition and how it affects the body brought her attention to healthy eating, to which her new show will be the main focus, along with celebrity diets and favourite English dishes.
Emma said‘I have an insatiable curiosity for new flavours and food combinations and often host dinner parties at home so I can share food I love with people I love’
She also added‘Though I admire Michelin chefs, I identify more with the style of those such as Jamie Oliver and I am heavily influenced by Provencal cuisine.’
Yesterday we caught up with the cast from the amazing popular TV series Breaking Bad for a press conference. Here is our video Editor Rich Gilzene pictured with the main star of the show Brian Cranston!
