Festival Review: Groovin The Moo - Hay Park, Bunbury (11.05.13)

This year’s run of the Groovin’ the Moo festival came to a close at Bunbury’s Hay Park on Saturday. Though the festival has been running for a couple of years now, this was the first time I’d ventured along, drawn in part by an eclectic line-up of both Australian and international artists.

Live Review: Matt & Kim + Citizen Kay + Tiger Beams - The Zoo, Brisbane (09.05.13)

There is no denying Matt & Kim know how to put on a show. The mosh pit was writhing with visceral mayhem, killer music and a whole lot of inappropriateness led by the twerkin’, booty shaking force that is Kim. Starting the night off, well known Brisbane duo Tiger Beams put on a messy set full of charm and potential, ending with intergalactic synths and brilliant dance moves to rival even my own. Live long and prosper. The cheeky grin of Citizen Kay then whips the crowd into a frenzy of flow and tunes before the Brooklyn duo took over the stage at The Zoo.

Live Review: Groovin The Moo – Bendigo (04.05.13)

If you live in Victoria, you would know that Bendigo and Ballarat are typically your country town rivals. Aside from Geelong, these two regional cities are the next best thing after Melbourne. Now without sounding biased, my good old hometown of Ballarat has a lot going for it. Home of the Gold Rush, the iconic Lake Wendouree, chips cheese and gravy...we are doing alright down here! But there’s just one thing that Bendigo has that we don’t, one thing that dare I say, really puts it ahead of the old ‘rat a tat – Groovin the Moo.

Live Review: Matt and Kim + Jackie Onassis - Oxford Art Factory (01.05.13)

If I had to describe Matt and Kim in one sentence it would be this: they are one of the world's greatest live bands who you've probably never seen. And it's not like anyone would blame you for it. Sure, you might know a couple of songs, and they're always fun to listen to, but nothing screams "these guys would TOTALLY own live". But, alas, they totally do.

Festival Review: Groovin The Moo - University of Canberra (28.04.13)

As a Brisbane girl it’s an exciting experience to make a special trip out of my city and state for a festival. And with the line up at this years Groovin' the Moo, I wasn’t going to miss it for the world, even if it meant two days of 4am wake up calls.

Festival Review: Groovin' the Moo - Maitland Showgrounds (27.04.13)

The first Groovin’ the Moo of the year was given the most perfect day for a festival. Big blue skies, a bright shining sun, and not a cloud in sight met Groovers who showed up to the Maitland Showground on Saturday April 27th. The sold out Maitland leg of the festival preceded the Canberra show on Sunday, a big weekend for artist and festival organizers alike.

SXSW 2013 Photo Gallery and Live Review: Matt And Kim - Fader Fort, Austin (12.03.13)

One would be hard pressed to call the music of Matt and Kim "totally gangster", yet that may be the most apt description of their live show. Jumping around like a couple of excitable teenagers - both on stage and amongst the crowd - Matt and Kim know how to deliver a killer live show, complete with plenty of interludes from the music of artists like Ludacris ("Move Bitch (Get Out the Way)") and Alice DeeJay ("Better Off Alone"), not to mention the huge energy coming off stage. Totally gangster indeed.
