ADELAIDE

Photo Gallery: Andy Bull + Cub Sport + Lanks - The Gov, Adelaide (16.04.15)

Andy Bull began his national tour at The Gov in Adelaide. While the weather was wet and cold outside, inside was warm and cosy. Lanks and Cub Sport were great support acts. Our photographer John Goodridge was there to capture a few snaps.

Photo Gallery: Mariachi el Bronx + The Peep Tempel - The Gov, Adelaide (09.04.15)

Bringing their unique brand of mariachi music to Australia, Mariachi el Bronx hit the Gov in Adelaide. Melbourne's own The Peep Tempel were support. Our photographer John Goodridge was there to bring you these pictures.

Live Review: Horrorshow + Tuka + Left. - The Gov, Adelaide (05.04.15)

My Easter Sunday wrapped up at The Gov, where Sydney's brought their stripped back 'Listen Close Tour' to an end. Considering the Adelaide show on the tour wasn't a part of the original run of dates, it was fantastic to see that the gig had sold out tonight. Supported by Tuka and Left., the night saw three acts who are normally known for some huge hip-hop and electro/soul sounds, mix it up and present their music in a raw, inventive fashion.

Live Review: Northeast Party House + Food Court + West Thebarton Brothel Party - Adelaide Unibar (04.04.15)

It's been a while since Northeast Party House had performed in Adelaide and going off the reaction the Melbourne band received from the Unibar crowd on Easter Saturday, it'd been far too long for their liking. Bringing the 'Double Darts Tour' to Adelaide and then Ballarat this weekend, NPH showed no signs of weariness or complacency as they took to the stage and ripped the Unibar a new one.

Live Review: Ed Sheeran + Jamie Lawson + Conrad Sewell - Adelaide Entertainment Centre (01.04.15)

Ed Sheeran made his return to Adelaide last night, as his current national tour edges closer to its end. The last few weeks have seen the 24 year old British musician popping up everywhere, promoting his X album relentlessly on radio and in the press, not to mention ensuring that the two artists have been receiving good amounts of press as well. Performing wedding singer duties, spending time at children's hospitals, appearing on Home and Away and launching his own imprint label have been just some of the things Sheeran's been up to while in the country and yet, the only sign of any weariness the crowd gets during his first of two Adelaide shows is in the cracking of his vocals at various points of the show.

Ed Sheeran

Wednesday night saw the first of Ed Sheeran's two night stand at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. Kerrie Geier was there for the AU review.

Live Review: Badhaus Thursdays at Rocket Bar, Adelaide ft. Electric Exiles + Cosmo Thundercat and more (26.03.15)

I can’t stress enough how great Rocket Bar is. Being open on a Wednesday night for Punk Ass Kids, Friday night for Cats and Saturday and Sunday, why the heck not throw a party on a Thursday night, right?! So that’s exactly what the dudes from Badhaus did! With entry only being 5 smackers and $5 drink specials all night long, your Friday mornings are starting to look hazier by the second... I know mine did!

Photo Gallery: Uriah Heep - The Gov, Adelaide (25.03.15)

The first time in their thirty year career, Uriah Heep brought their prog rock show to Adelaide. Our photographer John Goodridge was there to capture a few snaps.

Live Review: Kingswood + Lurch & Chief + The Belligerents – The Gov, Adelaide (20.03.15)

A motley crowd furnished the sold-out Gov, cramming into cosy booths and littering the floor with boisterous bodies. Long hair dominated the night, complemented by ravaged denim and frosty beers in hand. Alternating between wild thrashing and laid-back jams, Adelaide received the very best of both worlds.

Live Review: Vance Joy + #1 Dads + Airling – Thebarton Theature, Adelaide (21.03.15)

Vance Joy

Every teenage girl’s heart-throb Vance Joy was welcomed to Thebarton Theatre by house full of screaming pre-teens (cheers to all ages gigs, huh) and their fathers as part of his Dream Your Life Away tour.

Opening for Joy was last year's national Unearthed Splendour in the Grass winner Airling. By now we know what we’re going to get with Airling - a vibrating mix of electronic and drum beats propelling her ethereal vocals over the crowd like a haze. And boy, what a set of pipes she has. Fun fact: she’s the cousin of acoustic guitar-toting Jack Carty who you should definitely check out also.

Photo Gallery and Live Review: Damian Cowell's Disco Machine + Central Deli Band + Disco Puppets - The Jade, Adelaide (20.03.15)

Damian Cowell threw us all back into the 90's when he bought his Disco Machine to town. A disco is a school hall at the end of grade three and there’s one tube of fairy lights strung across a table with someone’s big sister DJing - THAT’s a disco. This is a machine...

Live Review: Kylie Minogue + Giorgio Moroder + Betty Who - Adelaide Entertainment Centre (17.03.15)

Extravagant sets, prismatic lighting and heavily sequinned outfits enveloped Adelaide on Tuesday night, heralding the return of pop princess Kylie Minogue on her Kiss Me Once tour. Sharing the stage with electro songstress Betty Who and iconic producer Giorgio Moroder, the night was star studded in more ways than one.

Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue put on an amazing performance to a huge crowd at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Tuesday night. Kerrie Geier was there for the AU review.

Adelaide Fringe Festival Review: My God… Neil Diamond Sounds Like Me - Colonel Light Gardens RSL (14.03.15)

Want to be taken on a journey from the mid 60s to the classics of the 70s and a touch of the 80s? My God… Neil Diamond Sounds Like Me is the show for you! Adelaide’s very own Dave Freeman presents a tribute to one of the greatest singer/songwriters of all time - Neil Diamond. Selling out both Adelaide Fringe shows and shows prior to the Adelaide Fringe, Dave is with his band on stage belting out your favourite Diamond tunes.

Adelaide Fringe Festival Review: Motown Connection's 'Boogie on Down to Soul Train' - The Arkaba Hotel (15.03.15)

The last day of The Adelaide Fringe Festival called for a delightfully entertaining performance by 13 piece superband, Motown Connection. Presenting, Boogie On Down To Soul Train, the show tributes the time of the Disco, covering numbers from the hot dance floor anthems of the 70s - 80s era!
