Friday night at Jive, the Indie kids are out in full force wearing their hats indoors. Awesome! It is album release day for Jinja Safari and they have this time sold out the venue and bought with them 44th Sunset.
Releasing their self titled album, Jinja Safari are touring the country to sold out venues. They played the Jive Bar on Friday night with support from 44th Sunset. The boys always have a great time on stage with their infectious tunes making the crowd dance along. John Goodridge was there and brings us these photos from the pit.
Jinja Safari aren't usually seen cramped into a small stage, playing acoustically, without room to jump around and climb onto nearby structures. But that's exactly the circumstances they found themselves in when they previewed a few songs off their forthcoming debut record at a private event at Sydney's new Rock n' Roll bar: Vasco's. And truth be told, it couldn't have been more entertaining, as we all enjoyed their signature "Jinger" cockail. Enjoy pics from this special event below, and enjoy their self-titled release when it debuts next Friday, May 17th. - Larry Heath

JINJA SAFARI - ALBUM LAUNCH DATES
This week’s album news brings the return of Empire Of The Sun, a taste of City & Colour’s album in the making, debuts from Jinja Safari and Owl Eyes, plus a whole heap more of announcements!
The second day of the Southbound festival saw temperatures rise well past the coolness of the first day and had the majority of festival goers opting for the shade of the Share Stage.

Having had a fair dose of laughter thanks to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival travelling roadshow, I headed to Shroom in New Delhi for the Second Aussie BBQ, which was part of a very jam packed final two days of my time in India. The show, in the futuristic surrounds of the venue - where we were introduced to the ‘upmarket’ side of Indian lifestyle - went very well by all indications. Especially considering this was the first time rock bands had performed in the dance oriented venue.
The third day of the Falls Festival sees bands such as Ash Grunwald, Cosmo Jarvis and Oh Mercy in the Grand Theatre and Boy and Bear, The Flaming Lips and Hot Chip on the Valley Stage. The Theatre reaches capacity for Flume later in the evening. Our photographer on the ground, John Goodridge was there to bring us some photos.
With the first of the Aussie BBQs behind us, and Karnivool on their way back to Australia, we were all treated to a day off in Mumbai before we headed to Delhi for the second show. Having spent most of our time in a bit of a glass bubble - taken from one event to the next with a chauffeur, lounging in five star accommodation - for our day off we opted to move outside of our comfort zone and experience some day-to-day life in Mumbai, mayhem and all. For this adventure I joined a few members of Jinja Safari and their manager and headed from the hotel to the more touristy areas; the Gateway of India, the Taj Mahal Hotel, street markets and all that fun stuff...
