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.

This Saturday, an impressive contingent of some of the country's best touring acts will fly north to spend the weekend in Darwin at the Bassinthegrass music festival. While the rest of us look ahead to the freezing winter section of the music calendar, Northern Territorians get to soak up some amazing live music in the tropical climate many are envious of. Instead of hooking you up with an artist's hit single to hype you Darwinians up for the festival, we take a look at the artists below and some their finer cuts from recent releases you should get around in the lead up to Saturday's event.

Kingswood performing exclusive run of Australian shows for 'Coopers After Dark'!

Pop your hands up if you've enjoyed Kingswood's music with a cold Coopers in hand/being chugged down. Perhaps you've even been one of the lucky ones to have had a plastic cup of the beer poured down your back during one of the band's famous hectic live shows. Either way, the rock music Kingswood have made their name in producing goes hand in hand with the excellent live music culture in Australia Coopers has long been apart of, so it makes good sense that the two would partner up for a tour all of their own. This May and June, Kingswood will be performing around the country as part of the 'Coopers After Dark' series, presented by Coopers Dark Ale.

Live Review: Kingswood + Lurch & Chief + The Belligerents – The Gov, Adelaide (20.03.15)

A motley crowd furnished the sold-out Gov, cramming into cosy booths and littering the floor with boisterous bodies. Long hair dominated the night, complemented by ravaged denim and frosty beers in hand. Alternating between wild thrashing and laid-back jams, Adelaide received the very best of both worlds.
