Live Review: Rubber Soul | Revolver - Festival Theatre, Adelaide (02.08.15)

When most people think of The Beatles, the massive hits and albums are likely to come to mind first. Even if you're unsure of what album the songs are featured on, you could probably name one hand some classics. In Rubber Soul and Revolver, the sixth and seventh albums released by The Beatles in the mid-sixties, are some of my favourite Beatles songs - from the lilting "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)", to "Eleanor Rigby" and of course, "Tomorrow Never Knows", both records signified important stages in The Beatles' career and it's no surprise that they've continued to be revered well into today's music culture.

Festival Review: Woodford Folk Festival Day Three & Four - Woodfordia, Queensland (29-30.12.14)

As dawn rose over day three of the Woodford Folk Festival, revelers didn’t seem to mind the pitter-patter of rain felt on their thongs, boots or whatever else was deemed appropriate attire for that day (Some even felt underwear was appropriate to strut around, not that I’m complaining, I only mention that in bemusement). Little did anyone know that the pitter-patter would turn into something significant, but more of that later.
