17th March | O2 Academy
Norfolk tends to be over-associated with the teeth-gnashing pathos of Alan Partridge and under-associated with an act like Deaf Havana. Last year saw them release Rituals, with its more overt pop leanings than the rock we had come to expect. Their performance at the O2 Academy, led by the energetic James Veck-Gilodi showed that a change is genuinely as good as a rest, as songs from their newest release sat comfortably with their back catalogue. The size and fervour of the crowd must be evidence in itself that Deaf Havana are doing something very right. Support from Hot Milk and The LaFontaines made for an evening of variety and quality. Jess Greenwood captured this photoset.
