Live Review: DMA’s + The Creases + Archers - Rocket Bar, Adelaide (09.10.14)

In the past few months, DMA's have achieved more than most young bands dream of achieving over the course of a few years. From being signed to I OH YOU to playing Splendour In The Grass, the journey of this Sydney trio thus far has to be what Hilary Duff was referring to when she said, "Hey now, hey now, this is what dreams are made of". Making their first appearance in Adelaide last Thursday night at Rocket Bar, these Britpop bandits were eager to prove that their sudden popularity is more than just a matter of dumb luck.

Third in our series of Adelaide #au5thbday interviews, where the local boys have conducted 'get to know you' chats, we've come to Archers.

Tom Gordon from Horror My Friend asks guitarist Brian Bolado for some more information on stylistic change, Archers fangirls and their penchant for performing with no shoes on.

Guitar shredding, Aria award winning, world touring, drum smashing, face melting, jager shotting, thrash/punk/party/rock duo DZ DEATHRAYS are headlining.

Live Review: DZ Deathrays + Archers + Kids With Teeth - Rocket Bar, Adelaide (12.04.13)

The last time I saw DZ Deathrays in any capacity, was by way of drunken brush past in the VIP tent at the Falls Festival in Lorne last year. I’d made the stupid decision of staying for the entirety of Coolio’s set instead of seeing the duo and it was one I would regret until tonight. In Adelaide on their “Teenage Kickstarts Tour”, the lads out of Brisbane are set to headline the ‘Cats vs I Oh You’ party and it’s evident that once you’re inside Rocket Bar, chances are you’re going to be in for one heck of a ride.
