Johnny Marr

Adelaide was treated to a stellar gig by the charming Johnny Marr on an otherwise cold and miserable Tuesday night. Performing a mix of his solo material, songs from The Smiths' catalogue as well as a few choice covers, it was one of the best gig's of the year. Kerrie Geier was there for the AU review.

Live Review: Johnny Marr - The Gov, Adelaide (21.07.15)

"It's Tuesday, isn't it? Fuck, man..." Johnny Marr has come to Adelaide off the back of successful shows in Sydney and Perth and on a freezing cold Tuesday night, fans have rocked up enthusiastic and willing. Seeing Marr perform in the surrounds of The Gov is an opportunity obviously not lost on the hundreds that have piled into the venue tonight, the vibe is cosy and warm and perfect for a few hours of straight up rock and roll done with that flair that has become one of the most talked about elements of Marr's live shows in recent times.

Fraser A Gorman is a young Melbourne musician who's creating waves with the release of his debut LP, Slow Gum. He showcased his album at the Grace Emily Hotel with some beautiful sounds from support acts Grace Goodfellow and Buffalo Boyfriend.

The Dunes have a Friday night residency at the Grace Emily Hotel all through July. Last night they were joined by a newly formed Adelaide psychedelic band Sons of Zoku. Our photographer John Goodridge was there and brought us back these photos:

Live Review: Marlon Williams - Jive, Adelaide (02.07.15)

The magic Marlon Williams conjures on stage is something I've not seen in a live music environment for quite some time. He comes through Jive, a venue on Adelaide's west end, with an old-timey charm and an alt-country/folk music fusion that sets hearts aflutter before breaking them into tiny pieces with some powerful lyrical storytelling. Yet, in between songs when he's introducing his band, warning the crowd an upcoming guitar solo might not be up to scratch or throwing back to high school days with his band mates, the man who stands before us is a friendly and down to earth 20-something from Lyttelton, New Zealand.

Live Review: Last Dinosaurs + I Know Leopard + It's a Hoax - Jive, Adelaide (03.07.15)

On Friday night Brisbane’s Last Dinosaurs took to the stage at Jive and delivered one of the most well-received performances you’re likely to see. The boys were touring (it finished up at the Amplifier in Perth on Saturday) in support of their new single “Evie”, which has been getting some solid rotation on Triple J of late.

Photo Gallery: Tim Rogers and The Bamboos + The Rememberz - The Gov (03.06.15)

Tim Rogers knows how to entertain a crowd. Match him up with The Bamboos and there is no way that the crowd can resist dancing. A great night out with these consummate entertainers. Local band The Rememberz also captured the audience's heart. John Goodridge was there and brings you these photos.

Live Review: Gold Fields + KLP + Problems - Jive, Adelaide (26.06.15)

It's been a while since I've seen Gold Fields perform. Aside from a late night set at BIGSOUND last year where they suffered from the bullshit noise restrictions limiting the quality of the actual show, the last time the Ballarat band was in Adelaide they were touring debut album Black Sun to a pumping Jive. Friday night saw them return with KLP as part of their current joint Australian tour and it was great to see them back.

Live Review: Alpine + Darts + Olympia - The Gov, Adelaide (24.06.15)

The first show of Alpine's national 'Foolish' tour took place at The Gov on Wednesday night, the audience an eclectic range of both the young and old.

Live Review: Dune Rats + Cosmic Psychos + Horror My Friend - The Gov, Adelaide (25.06.15)

Having Dune Rats and Cosmic Psychos in Adelaide on a Thursday night can really screw you up - the concept of returning to a full day of work on Friday and then a full weekend while feeling hungover as a dog after one of their shows is horrendous. Deciding to roll sober on this particular night (four previous Dunies experiences having taught me some lessons in the art of navigating hangovers in the past), I turned up at The Gov and became part of a crowd that had no qualms about rising to the occasion - things got messy, sweaty and anarchic quickly.

Ross Knight of the Cosmic Psychos got up during Dune Rats' set and described them as the bastard sons of the bastard fathers. Which about sums it up. The night started fairly reasonably with Adelaide's Horror My Friend but once the Cosmic Psychos played and the Dune Rats hit the stage it descended into anarchy. There was stage invasions, shoeys and the inevitable post shoey spew, madness and mayhem.

Jebediah came through Adelaide for their Slightly Odway 20th anniversary tour this week and long-time fan Lauren Connelly was there to capture some snaps!

Baby Animals

After weeks on the road together, Baby Animals (pictured) and The Superjesus brought the She Who Rocks tour to The Superjesus home turf on Friday night for the first of two shows at The Gov. Kerrie Geier was there for the AU review.

Theatre Review: Cirque Du Soleil 'TOTEM' - Grand Chapiteau, Adelaide (11.06.15)

Photo: OSA

Cirque du Soleil brought its world renowned magnificence to Adelaide last night, with the premiere of 2015 production TOTEM lighting up the specially constructed Grand Chapiteau in the parklands west of the city CBD. People poured into the Big Top, where we were greeted to complimentary drinks and popcorn and merch for days. Outside, local soccer training may have been taking place but inside the ampiteatre-styled set up, we were in for another type of impressive physical display.
