A one-off event is to be held in a secret Sydney location, hosted by Boost Mobile on Thursday 29 October.
Whilst the standout act for this weekend appeared to be Mother Nature and her thirst for dehydration and sweat, Austin City Limits in Texas still brought a collection of the worlds Music Powerhouses together to get bodies jumping this weekend. Today, Geoffrey D'Unienville takes us through this experiences and delivers his six highlights of the weekend - the acts destined for big things, and the ones who rocked it...
The beautiful thing about today’s Video of the Day is that it captures something we’ve all felt before: a need to escape when everything’s a bit too much. This clip accompanies “Not To Worry” by Elk Road featuring Governors, and if ever the visual aspect of a music video have complemented the audio to perfection, it’s in this one.
With the band soon to arrive in the country for their first ever tour, we caught up with Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance of Jamestown Revival to find out a little bit more about the friends, their new record Utah, and what they might have in store for audiences as they make their way to Australia to play the Out On the Weekend Festival in Sydney and Melbourne, plus a few headline shows of their own.

Her playlist comes in advance of her performance as part of the Sea 'n Beats music festival (epic cruise ship party, is more accurate) happening next March. Listen to her tunes here:

On the back of their ARIA top 10 album Aesthesis, Queenslanders Dead Letter Circus hit Melbourne’s Forum Theatre with 10 Years and Guards of May in tow to deliver three hours of straight up alt-rock goodness.
Lance Ferguson has taken some time out from generating some serious soul/funk heat with The Bamboos to take a dip into the sun-drenched Pacific with his latest single under his Lanu moniker, "Dragon Sun". Teaming up with Megan Washington once more, Ferguson's new single conjures the romanticised images of the South Seas and the rhythmic ebbs and flows of the waves lapping against some idyllic and golden beaches.
Having just released their new album, Modern Vintage, Brisbane’s Cheap Fakes are about to embark on a national tour. We caught up with them before it kicked off to discuss their experiences producing the new record, and how best to capture the energy of a live performance. Check out the interview below!
Public House Petersham (formerly known as Newington Inn) has completed renovations and is now ready to unveil its new look, which includes a Bushwick inspired aesthetic and a beer garden full of re-purposed shipping containers and two exclusive graffiti works by Sydney street artsts Phibs and Numskull.
Following the release of her new EP, Do I Make You Nervous?, we caught up with Melbourne’s Banoffee to discuss the EP, and her production experiences in the US. For the singer and producer, the record represents where she was as a musician at the time, and how she’s developed since. “When you release a record, you’ve been working on it for so long that by the time it comes out, it’s where you were, not really where you’re at,” she explains. “But it’s definitely had an impact on where I am now.” The EP was a chance for her to explore different types of music and genres that she hadn’t previously worked in. “I had a lot of fun with it,” she says. “I took a lot of risks.”
Manta at Woolloomooloo wharf has revealed a new fit out, new menu, and new sommelier. Like a lot of other restaurants near the water, the focus is on seafood, but at Manta there's a Mediterranean slant. Head chef Daniel Hughes is bringing back simplicity and provenance. It's all about fresh produce that you can trace right back to the source. Origins of the seafood and meats are listed on the menus, so that diners can be more aware about where their food comes from.
This month, the Philadelphia Grand Jury officially made their return, releasing their sophomore album, Summer of Doom. An album that almost wasn't even made but spurred on following the overwhelmingly positive response to their small run of shows around Australia in 2014, the record arguably has the trio at their refreshed best. It would seem that time away does help heal. Ahead of the album's release, MC Bad Genius and Dan W Sweat dropped by AU HQ in Sydney to chat about getting back together, working out of Berkfinger's studio in Berlin and their upcoming national tour.
