Live Review: Mojo Juju - The John Curtain Hotel, Melbourne (06.07.13)

Mojo Juju is a triumph. Embarking on her ‘On the Road’ national tour following the release of her debut self-titled album late last year, what better place to have seen her perform live then the steamy band room of The John Curtain Hotel.

Adelaide Cabaret Festival Review: Mojo Juju - "Pony Takes a Powder" - Space Theatre, Adelaide (07.06.13)

Live Review: Reverend Horton Heat + Mojo JuJu + Doubleblack - The Factory Theatre, Sydney (24.05.13)

rev horton heat

Walking into The Factory and finding three drum kits on stage was something a little different. I could only assume there will be quick turnarounds between sets tonight, which as I punter I love because it keeps the vibe and flow going. Doubleblack kicked it off with a mix of traditional rockabilly, punk and a dash of psychobilly as they fired the crowd up for the nights proceedings. A solid set from the three piece with some damn fine soloing and slap double bass work.
