Quick Review // Billy Bibby & Support @ The Lincoln Imp

On Friday evening I attended the newly refurbished gig room at the longest standing home of Live music in Scunthorpe. The Lincoln Imp has always hosted great live music for as long as I can remember but it’s new facelift it is bigger, better and well equipt to put on a show.

I was very impressed initially upon walking into the new gig room, the amount of space and the layout is just brilliant and hardly recognisable to the old gig room. The stage size has been increased and so has the audience’s space with the removal of the old sidebar, which was mostly unused. There is now a brand new bar around the corner from the stage away from the stage view so you don’t have people ordering drinks in your view. If you haven’t been to the Lincoln Imp for a gig since it’s refurb, please do check it out, you will be more than surprised.

This is the first gig I have been to since the refurbishment, although it wasn’t rammed full of people it was still a pleasant evening. I did miss the first support which was Lizzie Goddard but I have seen her a few times and she never disappoints her audience with her stunning voice and strong setlist of songs.

Years Young were the second main support, bringing a more heavy feel with lots of energy to the stage. Years Young are the newly formed band from former vocalist and former bass player from Ameira with two new members Ollie on drums and Danny on guitar. I’d say they have definitely got a bit more of a heavy influence than the more commercial sound they possessed as Ameira but in a way this is good as it means they have come away from what they were doing and are trying something new and finding their band’s sound. The boys have been busy recording at Peak studios and I think you can expect to see a music video very soon to accompany their first release.

Just himself and his acoustic guitar took to the stage and he performed some of his own songs and some well known covers throughout the hour.  He is no doubt a talented guitarist making his electro acoustic sound full and some great vocals to match. He seemed rather reserved and shy on stage but it didn’t affect his performance, it was quite endearing really. You can catch Billy touring around the UK at a venue near you.
