On Thursday 30th November, an eclectic line-up of musicians in and around the University performed at Pendle Live, giving their audience a much needed escape from the cold Autumn evening. ITUPursue started the evening with a hype, all-originals rapping set. Inspired by artists like Trippie Reed, XXX Tentacion, Juice WRLD and the American SoundCloud movement of the late 2010s, ITUPursue hopes to “be a legend”. Check out this guy for his upcoming performances and releases if this is your bag. He certainly got the night off to an amazing start.


Next, was a more mellow tone with an acoustic set from AisoNic. They performed a selection of pop covers from the likes of Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and the all-loved Oasis. Finishing the set with an original song, the crowd definitely resonated with this chill-sing-along. A perfect reprieve from the breakneck speed of deadlines and lectures. If you’re looking for a chill vibe, then look no further. Pendle Live is a great opportunity to come along and watch some new and aspiring artists, and even those already locally established, such as Kiwi.

Finally, the main act of the evening was local indie-rock band Kiwi, who I’ve reported on before, and love. Their act was their usual blend of of covers and originals, which always feel fresh. There were also some great upbeat tunes from Catfish, and Sundara Karma, who heavily inspire their work. Alongside what seems to be a band staple, Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn’tve) by The Buzzcocks, they also gave a stellar performance of their most recent single, Lost and Found, which is available to listen to on all streaming platforms and would make a great addition to your indie band playlist. Kiwi are amazing and just one shining example of the great local talent coming up in and around the North West. I hugely encourage checking out their final performance of the year December 16th at the Bobbin pub in Lancaster, especially as it is charity event supporting Defying Dementia. So pop down and make it a special one to end the year.
