VIVID Live Review: Astral People Presents Omar S + Africa Hitech + Cassius Select + More - The Studio, Sydney Opera House (01.06.13)

That terrible period where we have to wait for the next Vivid Sydney to bring us Studio Parties, is fast approaching. Before this string of partying in one of Sydney’s best venues comes to an end, the nothing-but-quality label Astral People were invited to curate arguably the best line-up of all the Studio Parties this year. This one was a no-brainer, hands down the best Studio Party I have been to since Club Kooky brought Azari & III to us in 2011.

Live Review: Animal Collective + Africa Hitech - The Palace (23.01.13)

Entering The Palace it was clear straight away that it was going to be an enjoyable evening. There was a bit of a buzz in the air and Animal Collective's stage show looked rather impressive. Suspended above were a row of teeth while on the stage there were also sets of teeth either side and several jagged cones towering over the performance area, creating the effect of a giant mouth similar to that on the cover of their latest album.

Live Review: Flying Lotus + Martyn + Africa Hitech + Arp 101 - Metro Theatre (06.01.12)

While Niche Productions have become well-known in bringing some of the highest quality acts to Australia, their bigger ventures such as the short-lived Days Like This festival seemed largely unappreciated by the wider music community in Sydney, the reason seemed to have been a general lack of good taste by the majority.
