Live Review: Art Of Music Live ft. Dragon + Iva Davies + Ian Moss + Josh Pyke + Tim Finn and more - Sydney Opera House (24.06.13)

A cold, wet, miserable night in Sydney did nothing to dampen the spirits of the people fortunate enough to be at the Art of Music Live. The intimate concert held in the Studio at the Sydney Opera House was a charity event for Nordoff-Robbins. The show proved to be just like the organisation, a confirmation of the unbelievable power of music.

Live Review: Stone Music Festival: Day Two - ANZ Stadium (21.04.13)

There is a lot that can be said about Stone Music Festival. What happened to the event before tickets went on sale was something quite telling of the nature of the current industry, and what happened after tickets went on sale perhaps showed the organiser's lack of foresight, albeit a strong ability to adapt. And unlike two other festivals who were cancelled in the last week due to low ticket sales, not to mention existing in a genre where artists tend to drop off like flies, to all the credit of the Stone Music Festival organisers, they still got the event off the ground, and by all indications - a few gripes from some early ticket purchasers aside - everyone in attendance had a great time. I was only able to attend the second day, but here are my thoughts on the fantastic music of the day - and as for the rest of my thoughts about of the event as a whole, I'll save that for a separate editorial.
