LIVE REVIEW: Call Me Diva, Manchester Moho, 27/04/2011

Red Rose Music Lancs caught Rossendale’s Call Me Diva‘s set at their show with Sick Of Sarah at Manchester’s Moho Live last night. Here’s our reviewer’s take on the show:

Resplendent in a sparkled top hat, electric drummer Lynn leads the band onstage and dives into the intro to the set opener and new single “Crazy As Me”. While the track has previously had a pretty solid review from us, this song really stands up in a live setting. Frontwoman Jane Britton’s voice is much bigger and soulful tonight, filling the unfortunately sparsely populated room.

A duo of more straightforward rock tracks keep the set rolling before more digital new song “Man Of War” kicks in with a whole host of samples and keys, suggesting a more diverse, tech-orientated new sound for the band.

A dark, sultry rendition of “Faith Hope Loves Faith” follows, including an excellent guitar solo before final song “Dance With The Fire”‘s handclap outro and ridiculously catchy “badadada” line rond off a good set that is pretty well received by the Manchester crowd.

Above everything else and despite the small crowd, Call Me Diva look like they’re playing music that they like and having fun up on stage – that’s the aim, I guess.

  1. Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in
    Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you
    a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!

  2. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.

    You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting
    videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
