Ella Hooper, Mantra, Thelma Plum and more to join Urthboy at the Melbourne Festival!

Urthboy is bringing his 'Make Me a Mixtape' to the Melbourne Festival this year and if its success at the Brisbane Festival earlier in the month was anything to go by, this event is going to bring the Melbourne Festival to a close in great fashion. Joining him for the October show will be the talented Ella Hooper, Mantra, Henry Wagons, Thelma Plum and Bobby Flynn.

'Out On The Weekend' set to bring Justin Townes Earle, Robert Ellis, Henry Wagons and more to Williamstown.

Out on the Weekend is a new destination event for Melbourne, introducing a celebration of Americana music, great food and fine booze on the water Seaworks, Williamstown. Love Police stated, "Ever since my first concert at the Wandong Country Music Festival in the mid 70’s, I have had a fascination with the country sounds, the roots of it all, let’s just call it Americana music. Over the years I’ve had the good fortune to work with some great talent in this field like Gillian Welch, Old Crow Medicine Show and a load more. I’ve always tried to bring the best of what I see, hear and discover to our fine shores for us all to experience the good shit".

Album Review: Wagons - Acid Rain and Sugar Cane (2014 LP)

I would make some quip about jumping on the bandwagon (pun intended) but that one has already been taken by every music review e-zine and magazine from Townsville to Bunbury. Wagons released their LP Acid Rain and Sugar Cane in May. If you like the sound of this you must absolutely keep your eyes peeled for their national tour around Australia over the rest of this month.

Live Review: The Heart of St Kilda Concert 2013 - Palais Theatre (14.05.13)

Trams suck. Really, they do. The tram heading toward this gig tonight seemed to be slowly moved up The Esplanade like a moose with constipation. Eventually it dawdled to The Palais in the plodding fashion that trams do.

SXSW 2013 Photos & Review: Henry Wagons - Hilton Garden Inn (12.03.13)

Henry Wagons has been a SXSW regular over the last few years, and he's returned with a new album Expecting Company. One of his sets was ahead of a performance called "People of Letters", and as usual he was up to his usual hilarious antics in front of a packed room on the top floor of the Hilton Garden Inn.

From 360 to Yolanda Be Cool: The Aussies at SXSW 2013 - Part Six

From March 12-17, the city of Austin, Texas will be throwing open its doors to tens of thousands of music fans, industry officials and musicians for the annual SXSW music festival and conference. Amongst that number are over thirty Australian artists. Over the course of the next couple of weeks we'll be profiling these artists, offering a brief introduction to what they’re about and what they have to offer.

Festival Review: St. Jerome's Laneway Festival - Fowler's Live and UniSA Campus, Adelaide (08.02.13)

The St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival has never been a niche festival, no matter how indie or decidedly ‘hipster’ its appearance purports. Having featured acts including Florence and the Machine, Foals, Two Door Cinema Club and more over the years, Laneway has always been one of the country’s best touring festivals that has continued to grow in popularity since its debut tour. This year is my third Laneway Festival and I gathered that, since the Adelaide leg sold out so close to the date (a miracle), things were going to be big down the city’s west end.

Eyehategod set for debut Australian tour!

So if you were sitting at home sulking in your EYEHATEGOD t-shirt because you heard they were headlining Melbourne's CherryFest but can't get there to see them. We are happy to announce they are showing the rest of Australia some love - well if you're going to travel all that way, why the hell not right?!
