Melbourne five-piece Dirt Farmer will be launching their new track "Delilah Lightning" at the Boogie 7 Festival, as well as Melbourne and Sydney from the end of the month! Premiered on Triple J's 'Home & Hosed' program this week, the slacker-pop anthem is a great song to delve into; one that will no doubt cause a stir when showcased live.
Check the band out at the following venues in March, April and May.

Joining in the live gig at the Espy will be Jornick, a French-Guyanan singer who has a reputation for being a class live act in the circles of reggae and electronica.
Like the rest of the country, we at the AU review cannot wait for Australia Day and with it comes the Triple J Hottest 100 countdown. Now that Hottest 100 is closed, venues around the country are announcing special parties to coincide with the announcements on Australia Day. With so many events going down on the day it's hard to decide which place to go and what to do.
