Last Week on Late Night: The Five Best Music Performances on US Late Night TV (21st-25th September 2015)

US late night talk shows are a showcase of all-things celebrity, politics, humor, comedy and music. They are often treated as the final thing we see before we go to sleep. With The Late Show with Stephen Colbert debuting in the same 11:30pm slot opposite Kimmel and Fallon – all shows were keen to pull out the big guns in the hope of attracting/retaining viewers.

10 reasons to get up early and to go Governor's Ball before Noon (this means you, Loren).

Kicking off on Friday, this year’s Governor’s Ball lineup is as stacked as a fluoro-tube-top-wearing rave Jersey girl, and that includes the wee little hot pants, because it’s stacked at the bottom as well. It’s not just about the biggies, though Outkast, Vampire Weekend and Skrillex are certainly the drawcards over here (see my picks in the article five of the acts you can't miss). Here’s the top ten reasons I’ll be getting up early to arrive for the midday sets – and dragging my friends accordingly, to whom I have dedicated this very handy post.

Photo Gallery: St Jerome's Laneway Festival (Part One) - Harts Mill, Port Adelaide (07.02.14)

The St Jerome's Laneway Festival entered the home stretch of its 2014 tour when it stopped in Adelaide at the new venue of Harts Mill this weekend. Lauren Connelly was out in the sun with thousands of punters to soak in a Friday of amazing music and brings you this gallery!

Festival Review: St Jerome's Laneway Festival - Harts Mill, Port Adelaide (07.02.14)

It's another blistering hot day in Adelaide and again, the festival lovers were out in force despite the sun beating down on us all. This time, the St Jerome's Laneway Festival was held down in Port Adelaide for the first time, a result of a much needed venue change from the UniSA campus site in previous years. Many were apprehensive, given the distance from the city, but I think the Harts Mill site is going to be a great venue to host the festival, with some small changes.

Sydney Festival Live Review: Big Star's Third Tribute feat. Tim Rogers, Cat Power, Kurt Vile, Kim Salmon, Edwyn Collins & Dave Faulkner - Enmore Theatre (23.01.14)

Big Star were a cult band but their influence has been far-reaching. The likes of R.E.M., The Flaming Lips, Belle & Sebastian and The Replacements have all cited them as influences and their music has been covered by Placebo, Jeff Buckley, Yo La Tengo and Elliott Smith, to name a few. They are the little band that could and it is Jody Stephens, the group’s drummer and sole-surviving original member who is keeping their music alive with tribute nights like Big Star’s Third.

Sydney Festival Live Review: Kurt Vile & The Violators + Shining Bird - Sydney Town Hall (22.01.14)

There are people who court fame and celebrity and then there’s artists like Kurt Vile. The Philadelphia native is one unlikely musician because while he is great at writing colourful, psychedelic tunes, you do get the sense that he’d be much happier playing in a studio than to a sold-out, Sydney crowd. But just as many shoe gaze acts have proven, you don’t necessarily have to strut around like a peacock or be a showman to cause a stir in the audience.

the AU interview: Stella Mozgawa from Warpaint (USA) talks Laneway!

Warpaint are returning to Australia for the 2014 St. Jerome's Laneway Festival, which comes in the immediate wake of the release of the band's sophomore self-titled album which was mixed by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Beck, Paul McCartney). Larry Heath spoke with the band's Australian born drummer, Stella Mozgawa about the new record, touring, Laneway and more.

Album Review: Kurt Vile and The Violators - it's a big world out there (and i'm scared) (2013 EP)

Kurt Vile: GQ’s rockstar of the year, psych/indie/grunge/pop genius, and just all around talented guy has dropped his latest EP, it’s a big world out there (and i’m scared). The EP acts as a B-side to Wakin on a Pretty Daze, Vile’s most recent album release, and was recorded during the same sessions. A special edition of Wakin on a Pretty Daze, with this EP in tow is also set for release—so if you don’t have either, get both at once.
