Chance Waters Launches Infinity in Victoria
Last Saturday saw some of the worlds' tastiest bands play for the under-18 festival "Live it Up" at Brisbane's RNA Showgrounds - such as The Amity Affliction and The Getaway Plan and many more!. Happy vibes all 'round despite the in-climate weather. Jacob Schneider shot these photos with a grin ear to ear the whole day.
When you’re a student who lives at Uni and whose few ventures into the outside world tend to be going out after dark it’s very easy to forget that there are underagers in the world. But in reality it was only a couple of years ago that I was eagerly counting down the days till I turned 18 so I could finally get out to gigs. And so with that in mind I really do appreciate concerts with an underage focus such as Live It Up Music Festival.
The last twelve months have been big for Chance Water; in November he released his new album Infinity, which then went on to have two songs in Triple J’s Hottest 100 Countdown. Over the next few months Chance will be embarking on a 19 date tour across Australia. I chatted with Chance about the album, collaborations, hip hop culture and of course the upcoming tour.
Aussie hip-hopper Chance Waters has just sent out this little beauty of a video clip into the world. With a feather-covered dancing man, a burning barrel of fire and the charming Kate Martin, this video is certainly kooky.
Sydney's Chance Waters had a huge 2012; since his second album Infinity dropped in at #54 on the ARIA Charts, Waters has been bouncing from success to success - a nomination for the J Award, two entries in the Hottest 100 and renowned shows across the country being only some of the highs he can count as his own.
Sydney lad Chance Waters is set to make his first ever tour out to Western Australia this February and March, following on from what was a stellar 2012 of performances. Performing five shows across the state, Waters will be bringing his brilliant sophomore record Infinity to the WA crowds, showing off exactly why the rest of the country has fallen for his live shows.

A record-breaking heatwave couldn’t stop Big Day Out 2013 from being one of the best in years, though not for lack of trying. The relentless sun threatened punters with heatstroke until about 6pm, at which point the cool air was a godsend, and the small bursts of rain salvation for us all.
Fed Square Live is returning for another kick-ass summer filled with live performances from Australian musicians. Did I mention it’s free and all ages? Because it is!
