Festival Review: Lollapalooza (Day Three) ft. Bleachers + Cage the Elephant + Flume + Kings of Leon - Grant Park, Chicago (03.08.14)

The gates opened for the final time at Grant Park today and by this stage, everyone was used to the heat. Sure, we sweated it out. But at this point, we were on the final round of Lolla and with only 11 hours to go, we were all in it for the long haul. The weather gods had other plans however, and soon the site was transformed into a muddy mess of a festival ground. No one cared though, if anything, it gave people even more of a reason to get loose.

Live Review: Glen Hansard + Lisa O'Neill - Sydney Opera House (17.03.14)

It’s hard to go past a magical Monday evening at the Sydney Opera House, under the light of a full moon with one of Ireland’s most successful and prolific singer-songwriters of all days on St Patrick’s Day. Tonight would be a night where Glen Hansard would showcase early material from The Frames right through to his most recent release Rhythmn and Repose.

Live Review: Eddie Vedder + Glen Hansard - State Theatre, Sydney (11.02.14)

Some gigs are really hard to put into words. It's that "look, I don't know how to tell you this, but you weren't there and you really missed out" sort of feeling. You don't want to come off a dick, but at the same time, you know it's true. And nothing you can say in words can replicate that feeling. It's the connection with the crowd, it's the energy in the air - it's the banter that time forgot. This is what a night with Eddie Vedder is like, returning to the State Theatre for his first solo tour in three years, following a few weeks on the road with Pearl Jam and the Big Day Out.

Glen Hansard set for special one-off show at the Sydney Opera House.

The Sydney Opera House will be hosting a very special show courtesy of Glen Hansard in March. Supported by Lisa O'Neill, this Hansard show is sure to be one of the memorable gigs of 2014. The emotive singer songwriter had a great reception with his tour in 2013, so it's great to see him back on our shores!

Live Review: Byron Bay Bluesfest Day Two - Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm (29.03.13)

Following up on what was a huge opening night for Byron Bay’s Bluesfest, Day Two’s program offered another fantastic line-up. Jumping between a variety of folk, blues, rock and soul acts whilst trying to avoid the downpours of rain across the night, Thursday was certainly an eventful day for the festival. From quality local acts including the lovely Skipping Girl Vinegar to special international Bluesfest regulars such as Ben Harper, the program presented us with endless opportunities to enjoy a superb array of musicians.
