Having previously given a glowing review to Dawes for their album 'North Hills', we were very much looking forward to seeing their live offering when we rocked up to see them in Birmingham. Touring the UK with Mumford & Sons, they US four piece were here to win new fans and take the opportunity to play some huge arenas. Would they rise to the occasion? Damn right they would.

Review by Rebecca Macindoe
King Tut’s was very busy from doors opening for this gig, which is quite unusual for this intimate venue. It seemed many people were there to see the first support act, Make Sparks.

Live review by Madeleine O'Shea

Not going to lie. The prospect of a gig in a laundrette is both exciting and slightly worrying. Especially when the place is a hole in the wall in Kemp Town and it's The Smoking Hearts, a band whose live performances have become renowned for their high-octane, balls-out aggression, or in other words breaking shit in the name of rock and roll.
