Spectrum Now announces free music program for their Spectrum Playground Hub in Sydney's The Domain

The current Spectrum Now is in full swing with the recent launch of their free outdoor hub Spectrum Playground, a potent mix of food, music, film, and culture. While concepts from the likes of Messina, LP's Quality Meats, and Newtown burger gods Mary's are holding it down the food side in The Nosh Pit, the city-wide festival has announced a huge music program of local artists set to take the stage at The Domain over the next week, including Deep Sea Arcade, Richard In Your Mind, Jack Carty, and Cabins.

Live Review: Spoon + Deep Sea Arcade - Metro Theatre, Sydney (14.02.15)

It's been almost five years since we last saw Spoon in Australia, as part of the Groovin' The Moo tour, off the back off their 2010 record Transference. A lengthy hiatus followed, resulting in the emergence of projects like Britt Daniel's Divine Fits, who made it down here as part of Laneway a couple of years back. But now we have the group that rose him and his three other members (now four) to fame, and we couldn't be more excited. But was the return worth the wait? You bet it was.

Live Review: Bluejuice + Deep Sea Arcade - The Metro Theatre, Sydney (24.10.14)

They are one of Australia’s most loved and lauded live acts and sadly, they are calling it quits. Those crazy cats from Bluejuice have decided it’s time to hang up the ridiculous home-made costumes and move on to new projects and lives. In the span of 13 years of touring, if you hadn’t seen them play at least once, be it at one of their own insanely wild headline shows or on a huge summer festival bill, you truly did miss out on seeing something spectacular.

Festival Review: BIGSOUND Live - Night Two, Part One ft. Safia + Gold Fields + Deep Sea Arcade + More... (11.09.14)

Night Two of BIGSOUND Live for me was a little more unplanned than Night One, allowing me to come across some unexpected talent along the way. As with any day at a festival like this, however, with all the amazing highs there were also, unfortunately, some lows. But we may have the fun police to blame for that... read on!

Live Review: Deep Sea Arcade + Sons Of The East - Newtown Hotel, Sydney (07.06.14)

Watching a band play in the Newtown Hotel is kind of like being in a fishbowl. The band backs onto large windows that open onto King Street, so while the band rips into their set you watch as people stroll behind, eating ice creams. Occasionally a busload of people drives slowly past. It makes it all a little surreal.
