We’re starting another new feature here at New Boots – the ‘NN Archives’.
This will be a monthly trawl through the thousands of photos David Jackson has taken over the years; mixing national touring acts playing in the county and musicians from the local scene.
Rather than look back a year at a time we’re going to do it month-by-month, to give more of an immediate dive back into NN’s musical past and to tie things into the current month. It’s going to work best splitting each month into parts, so the first will be featuring gigs from 2019 to 2013, with the second part – coming later in the month – going from 2013 to about 2009.
The years covered will change each month dependent on amount of content. Fallow months we might do in one go. 2020? We’re just going to not talk about…
In more shameless self promotion, I [David] have been giving my photography website https://davidtjackson.com an overhaul. There’s tons of stuff on it from the NN scene and beyond, as well as more photos from a lot of these gigs. Go and take a look there once you’re done here. Most of the content is currently on the Latest Updates page, as the galleries are being redone at the moment.
So, without further ado, here’s some part one of May. Enjoy.

At the moment, we’ll only be using using one or two photos per act per gig – but by all means feel free to submit as many as you like.
Part two of May will follow later this month, featuring ACODA, Ash, Tinnie Tempah, Soulfly and Cage The Elephant among many others.
