Do This

Buy tickets to see Jaws next month

7pm, Saturday 30th September
The Crossing, 1 Milk Street, Digbeth, B5 5SU

In support of their long-awaited EP If It Wasn’t For My Friends Things Could Be Different, local heroes Jaws return to the city next month and we can’t wait!

I’m sure I’m not the only one here who’s seen them live over the last decade and each time I’ve come away feeling I certainly got my money’s worth; they never disappoint!

A seriously well-rehearsed band who know exactly what the crowd want and deliver every single time. Riffs to melt your eardrums and mosh pits worth losing your drink for; this will be the best £16.50 you’ll spend on a gig in 2023. 

Get me in!

Reflection shot of man walking through Birmingham, captured by Jay Mason-Burns

A great reflection shot taken by Jay Mason-Burns earlier this year. 

Reminiscent of a ’90s rap album cover; perhaps an iteration of Nas’ Illmaticbut the Brummie version! 😅


Consider This

Shoppers enter the new location of the Bullring Rag Market in 2000

Watch this news segment on The Rag Market's relocation in 2000

This news segment from 2000 follows eager punters as they explore the relocated Rag Market in its first week of operation.

There are some interesting characters interviewed and I was struck by the sense of community amongst the crowds, something that feels less present of late - thanks, Bezos!

Short and sweet, this is bound to give you a little smile today.

Watch here.
