Live Review: Dinosaur Jr - The Gov, Adelaide (10.03.13)

Dinosaur Jr drew in quite the crowd on Sunday night. Snapbacks, long hair, beards, tattoos…I felt like I was walking into the 90s grunge scene, and I loved every minute of it.

Feature: Splendour 2013 speculation - who will or won't perform?

Will they or won’t they? While we will never be sure who is playing a festival until the promoters actually release a line-up, it’s always fun to speculate and throw around any rumours that come up. The next big festival yet to announce their line-up is Splendour In The Grass. With the line-ups for Primavera, Summersonic and Coachella festivals already out there, it’s time to salivate over who will may (or have already actually confirmed) continue down here fore Australia’s premier winter festival.
