New Music Video: Donny Benet & Kirin J Callinan "The Edge" (2015)

We'd like to give five stars to director Alex Smith for this truly amazing video for "The Edge". For anyone who grew up watching Rage, this will warm your heart and soul. And thanks to the collaboration of Donny Benet and Kirin J Callinan, the music ain't bad either. I'd like to go as far to say as it's pretty sexy - but that may just be Kirin's moves while Donny looks like a boss in the background. Or it may be the last 60 seconds or so which is something of an aural orgasm. Watch the clip here:

Festival Review: The Blurst of Times - The Factory Theatre, Sydney (25.10.14)

Guitars and subverted Simpsons t-shirts ruled Blurst of Times' Sydney debut. Its debut went off without a major hitch, even with some last minute timetable shuffling to adjust to. With The Factory Theatre proving to be a perfect space for the event, triumphing over the aural assault that marred OutsideIn last year. This was accomplished without actually putting the Factory Theatre stage to use, utilizing the smaller Fusebox and Factory Floor stages, and the smart move of setting up a main stage outside. Pushing revelries out in to the open air and giving itself a true festival atmosphere.
