For the fist time ever for Digital & Music Matters, YouTube in conjunction with their partner HP will be bringing the stars of YouTube to the conference held at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia in Singapore on the evening of 20-21 May.
I first heard Bec and Ben’s “This Is Why I Love You” last year, on a compilation released by My Sydney Riot. I’ve been a fan since then, but it’s only recently that I’ve had the chance to catch them live. Supported by Burn Antares and The Chitticks, they filled the FBi Social with rock music, laughter, and… feathers.
There are few moments in life where you can truly have the feeling of being in the presence of true greatness and my god, did I feel like that as I sat in a packed Her Majesty’s Theatre for the opening night of the David Esbjornson-directed Driving Miss Daisy. The production, starring acting royalty in James Earl Jones and Angela Lansbury, is in Adelaide for two weeks, after having already taken the show to stages in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. With fellow multiple Tony winner Boyd Gaines rounding out this trio of wonderful actors, tonight’s performance did not feel like a reinterpretation of the better known film adaptation, but a completely inspired take on Alfrew Uhry’s original.
Tonight Alive played the Factory Theatre on Thursday night with support from Because They Can and A Sleepless Melody. Gwendolyn Lee was there and brings us these photos from the pit.
Releasing their self titled album, Jinja Safari are touring the country to sold out venues. They played the Jive Bar on Friday night with support from 44th Sunset. The boys always have a great time on stage with their infectious tunes making the crowd dance along. John Goodridge was there and brings us these photos from the pit.
Heart of St Kilda took place on Tuesday with music from Henry Wagons, Rebecca Barnard and many more. Mandy Hall was there and brings us these photos from the pit.
Today marked the release of Aussie rockers Airbourne's new record Black Dog Barking, and Drummer Ryan O'Keeffe takes time out from their overseas tour to talk to Larry Heath about the new record, metal festivals and coming home.
Another sold out show for The Rubens, this time in Radelaide on Thursday night. The boys sure know how to turn a tune! They bought Ali Barter and Walk the Moon with them to get the crowd warmed up. John Goodridge was there to capture the night.
The Media Call for the National Indigenous Music Awards was held at The Arts Centre on Thursday to launch the nominations for the awards. Carl Dziunka was there and brings us these photos.
Californian singer-songwriter Hanni El Khatib has just released his sophomore album, Head In The Dirt, on Pod through Inertia. While on tour, he'd met Dan Auerbach (Black Keys) in a bar in Paris and after some whiskey got involved, they decided to partner up in Auerbach’s studio in Nashville. The idea was to erase everything he’d become comfortable with and to make an album out of only raw instinct and inspiration.
Deftones unleashed an absolutely killer set at the UNSW Roundhouse last night. Dan Turner brings us a few photos from the pit.
Documentary filmmaker Kaye Harrison (pictured, left) speaks to Larry Heath about her new film, The Sunnyboy. Premiering at the Sydney Film Festival on the day of The Sunnyboys Opera House concert for VIVID, the documentary follows frontman Jeremy Oxley’s life, music and thirty-year battle with schizophrenia.
Local Natives returned to the Metro Theatre in Sydney tonight to play in front of hordes of their biggest fans. Mikki Gomez was there and brings us these photos from the pit.
