If you were one of the millions of kids who cut their teeth on pop-punk and skate-punk in the late nineties and early-to-mid 2000s, the Vans Warped Tour was pretty much hallowed ground. I distinctly remember following the coverage of the American Warped Tours every year in high school, drooling over the line ups, following Buzznet blogs, watching videos and reading interviews. It was my dream to go over and follow the tour for myself at some point, although I'm not sure how I thought I was going to afford it.
Muse brought The 2nd Law Tour through Brisbane tonight! Andrew Wade was down at the Entertainment Centre and grabbed some great shots of everyone's fave Devon trio bringing their latest album, plus some classics, to life once more.
Vampire Weekend will be back in the country for their second Australian festival tour for 2013, this time taking on the Falls Festival over New Year's. With two headline shows also scheduled for Melbourne and Sydney, the New Yorkers will be showcasing more of their latest album, Modern Vampires of the City this time round, and so we got Rostam on the phone recently to find out how they've been in between visits.
Gossling's released the new music video for "Never Expire", off her Harvest of Gold album released earlier this year. She's just been announced for SXSW in 2014 and will be playing the Falls and Southbound Festivals over the New Year.
We talk to Nash Whalen, the keyboardist from acclaimed group Wooden Shjips about their latest record Back to Land, their European tour and tease the potential of them touring Australia in 2014 - as well as, of course, looking back at some of their past experiences here!
Comedian, Akmal Saleh was chuffed to be doing his very first show at the Sydney Opera House. He was there to film a new DVD and was surrounded by a generous audience of fans, family and friends. He declared the proceedings “first class” because “Everyone was wearing shoes and socks” and there was no need to ask the manager to “Turn the TV off”. His humour was quite cheeky, a little crass but ultimately quite fun.
You need look no further than Berlin composer Nils Frahm’s previous two releases, 2011’s Felt, (an album recorded inside a muffled piano) and 2012’s Screws (recorded following a hand injury) to see that Frahm is a musician unafraid to experiment and flirt with an eclectic mix of genres and styles. Spaces Frahm’s latest release, in it’s own way, celebrates this eclecticism, amassing a collection of live field recordings from the last two years.
It was a bit of a "back to the old days" set as Passenger performed a FREE set today, back where he used to busk in Martin Place, when he was recording his record here in Australia. This special 25 minute set comes the night before he is to play in front of thousands of people (SOLD OUT at the Enmore Theatre). A selection of his tracks from his performance will be posted to this page as they are uploaded to our YouTube account. Enjoy!
Ahead of their Australian tour, headlining Heavyfest, and with their latest release Κατά Τον Δαίμονα Εαυτού (Kata Ton Daimona Eaytoy), Rotting Christ’s Sakis Tolis shepherds Mary Boukouvalas on a musical, lyrical and spiritual journey through ancient mythology and culture.

'Biggy' is another track from Warpaint's self-titled album, set for release on January 17 2014. The band will tour in Australia for St Jerome's Laneway Festival in January and February next year.
Ms Alicia Keys was in Adelaide tonight – the vocal powerhouse bringing her new album Girl On Fire, as well as her classics, through the City of Churches on a chilly Monday night. It’s a fully seated show and it’s pretty cool to think about the different ways the Entertainment Centre can be set up, especially thinking about the different acts we’ve seen come through over the past month or so. As people file into the arena, Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder tunes play; the there are two pianos gleaming onstage (one is partially hidden under a sheet), and it’s not long before the opening artist makes his way onstage.
Alicia Keys strutted her way on to the stage in front of a huge crowd at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre, where she proceeded to blow us all away. Kerrie Geier was there for the AU review.
Vans Warped Tour headed to Canberra's Exhibition Park on Friday where we caught the full line-up. Here's the third and final part to our Canberra gallery. Gwendolyn Lee brings us these photos from the pit at the Kevin Says stage where The Summer Set opened the stage and The Offspring headlined.
This year's Vans Warped Tour line-up was so huge, we couldn't fit it all in one gallery. Here is part two of how the day unfolded at the Adelaide stop. Kerrie Geier brings you these shots.
