Big Day Out 2013 @ Flemington Racecourse

Another year, another Big Day Out comes and goes and another batch of sunburnt 15 year olds, disgruntled mid-twenties musos and 40-something year old die hard fans head home, bludgeoning Metro with their sweaty, tired bodies. It’s a part of my calandar every year, so I headed along to Flemington Racecourse, giving up my Hottest […]

High Highs @ The Toff in Town

According to High Highs Last Fm profile their major influence is ‘silence’. Judging by their live performance I wouldn’t disagree. “This is our first show as a band in Australia” front man of High Highs Jack Milas explained half way through his set at the Toff in Town. This may not seem so odd when […]

Groovin’ The Moo 2013 Lineup Rumours + Event Information

Another one of these bad boys. I get to go through and suss out who is playing the regional touring festival throughout April/May. So, here we go. Let’s see who I think I can confirm. Confirmed The Might Be Giants – They mentioned earlier last week that they had a tour planned for April/May but […]

Tegan and Sara – Heartthrob

In their time, the musical world of Canada have given us a lot to love. In the last year alone we’ve had a farewell tour for post-hardcore juggernauts Alexisonfire, a resoundingly praised record from Grimes, and the return of Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Unfortunately, in 2013 we cannot add ‘top notch release from Tegan and […]

Yo La Tengo – Fade

When a band have been around for almost thirty years, theoretically it becomes relatively easy to identify the genre that their music falls into. However, meet Yo La Tengo: they don’t make it easy. One could definitely label them with that gaping void of a genre we call ‘alternative rock’, but that would be lazy. […]

Falls Music and Arts Festival @ Lorne

I attended my first falls last year when the Arctic Monkeys headlined and I fell in love with it. The atmosphere of the four days is one comparable to the perfect combination of the patricians of Harvest and the party goers at a festival like Future Music Festival. The atmosphere remained the same as my […]

Laneway 2013 Lineup Revealed

Well I think I may have predicted more than five of the bands on this killer lineup. Once again the guys from Laneway are bringing a fantastic array of underground and independent artists to our shores for a national tour. Are there any surprises? Sure. I never picked Real Estate to back so soon after […]
