We head to New York City for CMJ. We catch up with the Aussies at The Aussie BBQ and at the College Day festivities. We also catch up with DAMNDOGS, Gotye, Cassette Kids, the UK's Cosmo Jarvis, who had just left Australia, and more!
Homebake returned to The Domain over the weekend for the first time since 2009. It was missed by all of us in 2010, but its year away was understandable in all respects. Though its 2011 installment didn't sell out, the crowds were massive, energies were high and the music was killer. Here's a look back at the day...
DAMNDOGS Australian Tour Dates:
11/30/11 – Beach Road Hotel, Bondi Beach (w/ Gold Fields)
12/2/11- Beresford Hotel, Surry Hills
12/3/11- Homebake Festival, Sydney
I made my way into the Oxford Art Factory just in time to catch one of my favourite Australian groups, Adelaide's Wolf & Cub. It had been a while since I'd seen the four piece, so it was a pleasure to see them back in action - 2 drums, 1 guitar and 1 bass working together to create some inarguably impressive music; the sort of music that in one moment has you dancing your face off and in the next has you grooving into slouched splendour. Just good old rock and roll, really.
