It’s all happening at The Gov in this week’s announcements, with The Drones, The Superjesus, Kaki King, San Cisco, The Reverend Horton Heat and Soilwork all announcing shows there. While Cable Beach Amphitheatre gets the chills from Icehouse and the Rosemount Hotel gets a visit from some reformed 80s icons.
DZ Deathrays have a had a blast of the last 18 months, with their LP Bloodstreams accruing massive amounts of acclaim, adding onto the stellar reviews of their crazy live shows. The Brisbane duo, who were recently announced to be the national support for The Bronx's Australian tour, have now announced that they'll be touring under their own headline banner, wit the 'Teenage Kickstarts Tour'.
This time last year we divulged our top twelve Australian artists and top five international artists to watch over the following twelve months. So we figured now was as good a time as any to have a look back and see how they all fared...
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.
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.
One of my favourite bands out of Brisbane at the minute, Millions, were in Adelaide for their recent EP tour and considering my only other option on a Saturday night was staying in on my own, trying to stay cool, I figured catching these lads and having a drink up at Rocket’s rooftop bar offered a better alternative.

This years BIGSOUND was bigger and better than ever. They boasted 120 bands over 12 stages. They did not fail to deliver. With all new venues including Magic City, Mustang Bar, and Press Club, the whirlwind Live program just that, a whirlwind. 30 minute sets, 20 minute turnarounds. With five sets per venue per night, there was absolutely no way to get to everything, but oh my, did I try make the most of sensational two night live music event.
