Billy Locket @ EVAC – REVIEW, 22.10.14 | LSRadio - Liverpool Student Radio
Having never been to EVAC before, I didn't really know what to expect, but after climbing the stairs and being introduced to 'The Loft' I could tell I was in for a treat. The opening act was up and coming LIPA artist Kate Hazeldine. With only a piano to accompany her she brought a deep, haunting ambience to the room, all the time intricately weaving her powerful vocal with impressive ease. It made for a captivating, if not a little brief, set. The local talent continued as the charming 23 Fake Street took to the stage. With a host of covers including 'Pyro' by Kings of Leon along side their own original material, 23 Fake Street ensured the atmosphere remained a serene one. Perhaps as a result, everyone had remained around the periphery of the room. The ostensible dissonance was soon quashed however, as final support, Karima Francis, climbed onto the stage. Urging everyone forward, the atmosphere shifted towards the intimate live experience you would expect from a venue like EVAC.
