Sydney Festival Live Review: Big Star's Third Tribute feat. Tim Rogers, Cat Power, Kurt Vile, Kim Salmon, Edwyn Collins & Dave Faulkner - Enmore Theatre (23.01.14)

Big Star were a cult band but their influence has been far-reaching. The likes of R.E.M., The Flaming Lips, Belle & Sebastian and The Replacements have all cited them as influences and their music has been covered by Placebo, Jeff Buckley, Yo La Tengo and Elliott Smith, to name a few. They are the little band that could and it is Jody Stephens, the group’s drummer and sole-surviving original member who is keeping their music alive with tribute nights like Big Star’s Third.

Live Review: Cat Power + Mick Turner - Enmore Theatre (02.03.13)


Considering all the maligned reports I had heard of Cat Power’s performances in the past, I wasn’t sure what to expect on this overcast Saturday in Sydney. Reflecting upon my appreciation for her recorded material, I went along regardless, with expectations at a high. Despite the scathing review this lack of fulfillment may have given me the opportunity to spew forth, she ended up disappointing in this particular expectation and allowed me a greater pleasure; that of a complimentary review reporting on a fantastic concert.

Live Review: Cat Power - Chevron Festival Gardens, Perth (26.02.13)

Tuesday night saw Cat Power stop in at the Perth Festival Gardens for the first of two shows. It was her second show of the tour in Australia, following a run of two shows in New Zealand. I can’t say it was the best performance I have seen from Chan Marshall, but was by no means her worst performance, and her admission that she’d “done a terrible show and was embarrassed” seemed like a tough self-assessment.

Live Review: Cat Power - Her Majesty's Theatre, Adelaide (25.02.13)
