Melbourne Zoo kicked off it's Zoo Twilights series on Saturday with a live set from Missy Higgins and Hayden Calnin. the AU review brings you these photos from the night.
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 Melbourne Zoo is about to get wild in a whole other way, with the announcement of their 2013 Twilight Zoo Program, with tickets available now. Kicking off on January 25 with ARIA Award winner Missy Higgins, the Zoo Twilight Program, sees the zoo put on a live music event every Friday and Saturday night through until March 9th.
Ben Sollee has been changing minds all over the world with his soulful, folk music, with his vocals and instrumental compositions.
This Spring, Missy Higgins embarked on a bunch of tour dates across Australia, playing in some of the country’s grandest venues. I was lucky enough to catch her at the State Theatre in Sydney for an unforgettable night of witty banter and incredible music.
With two guest performances and loads of on-stage banter, Missy Higgins' gig on Tuesday night felt more like a casual, intimate session with friends than a sold-out show at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre.
In the column this week, it's all about ARIA's and opportunities. You can get yourself to another award show over in the states, with a chance to perform at the Grammy's, AMRAP also fights to survive so that it can continue to distribute music to community radio, and Allens Billy Hyde are saved.
Arguably the biggest night of the Australian music industry, the ARIA Awards, took place in Sydney overnight and brought some of the country's heavy hitters in music out, as well as some international guests. From Taylor Swift's performance through to Russell Brand presenting Gotye with his umpteenth award of the night, the ARIAs of 2012 seemed to go smoother than the ceremony did last year.
El from The AU review spoke to Butterfly Boucher about her US tour and having an unashamed dance.
