The Enemy re-opened London venue Proud this week (April 3) with a short acoustic set. The venue shut last year due to redevelopment at its original location in Camden. Much like The Enemy’s Union Chapel performance last November, the Coventry trio drafted in a string quartet while they sat on stools for their 20-minute gig at the Horse Hospital in the Stables Market, close to Proud’s previous location.

Tom Clarke recently responded to Faris Rotter’s announcement at the NME Awards that they laugh in the face of natural selection. "It’s one of them things where, if you’re childish and if it upsets you, then you’ll probably rise to it." He didn’t. Pic: Sonia Melot


Following on from his collaborations with Gallows last month, Lethal Bizzle hits the stage in Camden. Pic: Sonia Melot


Lethal Bizzle whipped the crowd into a frenzy for hit singles ‘Pow! (Forward)’ and ‘Police On My Back’, before wrapping up his set with a medley, which included a cover of House Of Pain’s ‘Jump Around’. Pic: Sonia Melot
