Festival Review: WOMADELAIDE (Day One) - Adelaide Botanic Gardens (06.03.15)

There's something about WOMADelaide that always gets me so excited. I was gutted to have missed out on the festival last year and as I took the short walk from my house down to Botanic Park, I could tell by watching the families and other people rushing through to the gates, that this was going to be another great year. The four day world music festival brings with it a bill of artists representing such a wide range of music and performance styles that it's near impossible to know every act on the line up. Which is no bad thing. Instead, you go along and discover some new favourites along the way.

Adelaide Fringe Festival Photo Gallery: The Black Sorrows - Garden of Unearthly Delights (05.03.15)

Joe Camilleri and The Black Sorrows played to a packed Speigeltent in the Garden of Unearthly Delights for the Adelaide Fringe. The group were clearly enjoying playing their hits to the audience. Our photographer John Goodridge was there to capture some photos.

Photo Gallery: Foo Fighters + Rise Against - Cooper's Stadium, Adelaide (04.03.15)

Adelaide Fringe Festival Review: Plague of Idiots - Garden of Unearthly Delights (03.03.15)

Some of the best nights you can spend in the Garden of Unearthly Delights during the Adelaide Fringe Festival are the ones where you wander around and just pick a venue, and go and see a show you know nothing about. Sure, sometimes you can walk away thinking you've wasted your money, but other times you can come away from the experience thinking you've seen one of the gems of the programe. So when I was waiting outside the Cupola, ready to see the show Plague of Idiots, I had no idea what I was getting myself into - but I was keen to see how it all unfolded.

Live Review: Foo Fighters + Rise Against - Cooper's Stadium, Adelaide (04.03.15)

"You think this is a failure tonight?!" Dave Grohl exclaims, noodling away on his signature blue Gibson, in the middle of a packed out Cooper's Stadium. It's a windy night mid-week and the Foo Fighters frontman is commenting on recent labels that Adelaide has no scene for rock music made in the wake of the disaster that was Soundwave Adelaide. And, as he dedicates "Times Like These" to the Billy Corgans and the AJ Maddahs, the crowd erupts with applause and hollers. It would seem Adelaide's not taking any shit talk about their city tonight.

Live Review: Chet Faker + Roland Tings + GL - Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide (28.02.15)

Photo: Lisa Frieling

A mix of mellow tones and synth-laden flow conducted the night, settling the wide-eyed crowd deep into their seats and cementing upright feet to the wood-covered floor. Sold out wall-to-wall, Thebarton Theatre witnessed the beckoning influence of Chet Faker firsthand. Top-knots galore and full-faced beards dominated the male crowd, complemented by an overwhelming mist of affection from the ladies.

Adelaide Fringe Festival Review: Briefs 'The Second Coming' - The Menagerie @ Royal Croquet Club (01.03.15)

Adelaide Fringe Festival Review: A Tribute to Cat Stevens - The Whitmore Hotel (27.02.15)

Walking into the Whitmore Hotel on Friday night with a great liking of Yusuf Islam, commonly known as Cat Stevens, and a hazy knowledge of his life and career, I walked out of there with an even greater liking for, and more vivid knowledge of the legend.

Live Review: Megan Washington + Montaigne - The Gov, Adelaide (27.02.15)

Disco balls, silver streamers and helium balloons were to be seen on stage as Megan Washington, supported by talented musicians Greg Chiapello and Montaigne, brought her contagious energy and entertaining talent to a crowd of 500 at the Gov, Adelaide. It was one of the last shows of her national tour and the first time visiting the Gov since supporting Sia back in 2009.

Photo Gallery: Mogwai - Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide (27.02.15)

Scottish post-rock veterans Mogwai opened the Adelaide Festival last night to a sold out crowd at Thebarton Theatre with their unmistakable wall of chest-crushing drone and sonic sound. After waiting 13 years for their return, AU photographer Lauren Connelly made great use of her earplugs and shot these snaps.

Adelaide Festival Review: Beckett Triptych - Adelaide Festival Centre (Performances until March 15th)

The State Theatre Company's production of three of Samuel Beckett's shorter plays (Eh Joe, Footfalls, Krapp's Last Tape), brought together under the name Beckett Triptych, made me very, very uncomfortable. That's not a bad – anyone who knows anything about Beckett's work knows that you're supposed to feel uncomfortable, off-centre, confused. He doesn't write about easy subjects – it's all tramps and drunks, hoarders and mad women, the alienated and the chronically lonely. It's a testament to the very talented cast and crew behind Beckett Triptych that I felt so very discomfited for the entire evening.

Adelaide Fringe Festival Review: Battletoads Two Player Challenge - The Jade (25.02.15)

Battletoads is a game that was created in 1991 for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). It is ranked as one of the hardest games to play. In this Fringe event, Matthew Vecchio (as Rash) and Andrew Drake (as Zitz) play the game on the big screen.

Adelaide Fringe Festival Review: Felicity Ward 'The Iceberg' - Garden of Unearthly Delights (24.02.15)

Felicity Ward has come back to Adelaide from a long time away and she has some things to say, damn it. Bringing The Iceberg to the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Ward is angry at a lot of the same things we are (I say 'we' as in, most people with common sense and a beating sense of compassion): the current asylum seeker situation, the shambles that is current Australian politics and the fact that women aren't able to walk around, boobs out, without have the majority of men wanting to jack off over them.
