Festival Review: Splendour in the Grass (Day Two) Ft. City and Colour + Foals + Future Islands (26.04.14)

Weather kept smiling upon us as we navigated North Byron Parklands for the second official day of Splendour In The Grass, with the expected rain lasting all but a few minutes, aside from the occasional, insignificant drizzle. As such, the bulk of the crowd remained at the open-air Ampitheatre for the final moments of the day, with a fantastic closing line-up of The Jezabels, Foals, and City and Colour, who each came close to stealing the show from Friday headliners OutKast. Very close, in Foals' case.

Live Review: Vance Joy + Gossling - The Forum Theatre, Melbourne (22.05.14)

Even after the many encounters I have had with the Forum Theatre, I am still transported to a wistfully wonderful place upon entry. The dream-like interiors echo remnants of extravagance and romanticism, somewhat oozing a Baz Luhrmann circa Romeo & Juliet feel. Upon arrival, managing to catch the last of Gossling's enchanting set, the atmosphere was true to form.
