BIGSOUND returns for its 12th year in 2013 and tonight, they have revealed the first lot of artists and industry professionals set to perform and speak at the music conference in Brisbane later in the year. The September 11-13 event will be represented by some of the best in the international and local market, with the following artists set to perform, with more still to be announced:
The John Steel Singers
Bleeding Knees Club
The Mushroom Free for All was a free gig to thank the music loving public for supporting live music - and in particular the music of Mushroom! Featured were Adalita, Bleeding Knees Club, DZ Deathrays, Stonefield, Sures and World's End Press. Carl Dziunka brings us photos from the night.
Macklemore and & Ryan Lewis continue thier dominance on the charts, but Flume isn't too far behind. The Coopers Amp Prize rolls on with website content, and Josh Pyke giving you an opportunity to be mentored by him, all this in this weeks State of Affairs.
This time last year we divulged our top twelve Australian artists and top five international artists to watch over the following twelve months. So we figured now was as good a time as any to have a look back and see how they all fared...
The final day of the Falls Festival arrives and despite everyone being weary and dirty, the energy is still there. The Falls Fiesta parade at sunset is a highlight. The New Year is heralded in by Two Door Cinema Club on the Valley Stage and the fantastic Parachute Youth in the Grand Theatre. The party carried on till dawn, showing that the 20th anniversary of the Falls Festival was one to remember. Our photographer John Goodridge brings you these photos.
Bleeding Knees Club and Step-Panther played to an All Ages crowd at The Lair in Sydney on Sunday afternoon. Phillip Booth was there and brings you these photos...
We can blame schoolies,or the fact that there were four other supremely awesome gigs on in Adelaide on the same night or both, but Fowlers Live was not packed out like previous Bleeding Knees Club shows.
Not to say there was no one there but they probably could have set up at the merch desk and kept everyone front bar (if you’ve ever been, you’ll know what I mean). Most of the crowd were under-age, really evident when there’s a line for the pinball machines, good to see the kids have taste.
