Live Review: Sarah Blasko + Luluc - Zoo Twilights at Melbourne Zoo (06.02.15)

Gone are the days of Jazz at the Zoo - a BYO concert series with the likes of BABBA and Swing Patrol, and free FOTZ member entry. These days Zoo Twilights are a much more extravagant affair, hosting high profile international and local artists, food and beverage bars, at a costs of $50-$70 per adult, with child and family ticket options.

the AU interview: Luluc (Melbourne) talk 'Passerby' and life on the road!

To say 2014 was a massive year for Aussie folk act Luluc would be an incredible understatement. Alongside the release of their critically acclaimed album Passerby, they’ve been touring incessantly, playing alongside with some pretty big names and were named by the Wall Street Journal as one of the Top 15 albums of 2014. With an East Coast support of First Aid Kit coming up as well as a support slot alongside Sarah Blasko at the Melbourne Zoo Twilight Series on February 6th, Luluc took a moment out of their busy schedule to answer some of our questions.

Secret Garden Festival announces full line up for 2015!

The Secret Garden Festival recently dropped the news that it had completely sold out all tickets for the 2015 festival, which was only testament to the event's continued popularity and faith from the loyal public who've backed it for so long. Today, the Sydney organisers dropped the full line up of artists set to perform and man, is it impressive. Over 60 bands and DJs will play over four stages at Secret Garden, promising to be the biggest outing of the festival yet. Both international and Australian talent will be represented well at the event, so if you've managed to nab yourself a ticket, you're definitely in a lucky crop!

Luluc confirmed as national supports for First Aid Kit's 2015 Australian tour!

We're stoked to see First Aid Kit are returning to Australia next year for a run of long-awaited headline shows, but now we're even more thrilled to learn that Luluc have been confirmed as the Swedish duo's support! The Brooklyn via Melbourne duo has been touring their latest release Passerby to much acclaim, and it's about time they get the wider recognition they deserve on the homefront. Last seen supporting The National on their Australian tour, it's going to be great to see Luluc back in Australia treading the boards in 2015!

Something For Kate, Sarah Blasko, Dan Sultan and more featuring on the 2015 Twilight at Taronga series!

Live Review: The National + Luluc - Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide (06.02.14)

The National kicked off their Australian tour in Adelaide tonight, a few years on from their last visit to the Thebarton Theatre. I had seen the Mistaken For Strangers documentary the night before and so by the time 7:45pm had rolled around tonight, I was well keen to see the band perform some of my favourite music from the past few years.

Live Review: The National - Sydney Opera House Forecourt (07.02.14)

Sydney Opera House’s lovely forecourt is seldom used as a concert venue. Back in 2010 the space in front of those iconic steps hosted the otherworldly Massive Attack, and just last year, surf-rock legend Jack Johnson filled the area; both concerts which benefitted greatly from the effective atmosphere the outdoor stage brings.
