Charlotta Sharma reflects on a night at the Liquid Rooms with Beabadoobee. Beatrice Laus, aka Beabadoobee, took the Liquid Rooms by storm last Sunday evening, treating her audience to a long awaited night of 90s inspired alternative rock tunes and acoustic indie anthems. Having been postponed for months, Beabadoobee’s UK tour of her debut album […]
Welcome, fellow students, to the city of Edinburgh. Home to the famous Fringe Festival, your new home is proudly one of the most vibrant and long-established cultural epicentres in the UK, and as a student in this city, the world is truly your oyster. However, walking through the iconic greyscale cobblestone streets you may not […]
Fair warning, if you don’t like tight spaces, don’t go to a black midi concert. On a typically sodden Edinburgh night, the masses that came out to see them pile into The Liquid Rooms. The show is sold out, and the venue gives little room to manouvre. Fresh off their well-received debut album Schlagenheim, black […]
Unsure quite what the evening ahead would hold, and descending the long steep stairs down to Liquid Rooms, the distant and faintly mystical sound of the ‘hang’ (also known as a hang drum) can be heard coursing throughout the building.

Edinburgh may be a capital city, both geographically and culturally, but by no means is it renowned for its clubbing scene. With most of its student population content with a poorly curated night of sweaty debauchery in The Hive or an ironic evening of Hip-Hop in Bongo, there seems to be little market for the more niche and experimental.
