Festival Review: Groovin' The Moo - Oakbank Racecourse (25.04.15)

It quickly became obvious that if you came to Groovin the Moo in Oakbank expecting to your carefully planned, Coachella-ready festival outfit snapped by a photographer, you were probably gonna have a bad time. Recent wintry and rainy weather stuck with the hills throughout the day and night, turning the Oakbank Racecourse into a sludgy mud pit by the time people started leaving/sliding out at the end of the night. It's testament to the line up GTM brought through this year, that people stuck it out and didn't give up; rather, embracing the mud and the rain and getting as chaotic as the elements did.

The first leg of the Groovin the Moo festival was held at Oakbank, in the Adelaide Hills. Despite the steady rain which turned the horse racing track into a mud pit, everyone was in good spirits. A great range of music, from Wolfmother and on the main stages. to RL Grime and A$AP Ferg in the Moolin Rouge tent, there was something for everyone. Our photographer John Goodridge was there front and centre to bring you these photos from the day.

Theatre Review: Le Noir - Adelaide Festival Theatre (Performances to May 2nd)

Le Noir comes to Adelaide for a limited run into May and it's safe to say that in the lead up to the premiere of the season, there was a lot of talk and buzz surrounding this display of 'the dark side of cirque'. Once inside the Festival Theatre, I was already impressed with the set up of the stage and the use of the space by the company; the first few rows of seating had been removed to install landing mats over which a massive cage/wheel construction used for the finale hung suspended. Cabaret style seating on the stage just begged for audience interaction and as the show continued, it was made very obvious that this was a critical element of the show's entertainment.

Adelaide's Horror My Friend opened their April/May run of tour dates with a great hometown show at the Crown and Anchor on a Friday night, the eve of Record Store Day. With Clarity Records just around the corner set to open at midnight to facilitate the needs of those vinyl/CD devotees, the Cranka was playing host to large crowd of music lovers by the time the headliners took to the stage.

Oz Comic Con

Fans turned out in force to see the stars at Oz Comic Con in Adelaide over the weekend, from Doctor Who's Billie Piper to Hercules' Kevin Sorbo and everything in between. Kerrie Geier was there for the AU review.

Live Review: Andy Bull + Cub Sport + Lanks - The Gov, Adelaide (16.04.15)

If you've been even a casual follower of Andy Bull's career over the past few years, you'll know that even when he's not on tour, he's the type of musician to always have something on the go, something creative is always ticking away. We saw it when he made his return with "Keep on Running" in 2013 after taking some time away from playing shows off the back of the Phantom Pains EP. It signalled a shift in his creative direction and yet, instead of isolating fans, it intrigued and went onto be demonstrative of a textured musicality and knack for pop songwriting.

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.

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.

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!
