Gotye joins Kimbra, Jack White rocks out and Neil Young with Crazy Horse closes out day two of Austin City Limits (ACL)

After a beautiful first day that was kicked off into fine form by The Wombats and closed out by Australia bound The Black Keys, clouds hung ominously as over 70,000 punters descended on Zilber Park in Austin, Texas for the second day of the 2012 Annual Austin City Limits.

However you look at it, the re-issue of an album simply means that its success had the ability to resonate with the targeted listeners, which is what most musicians dream of in terms of their desired creative outcome.

A Sydneysider's Take on Melbourne's Big Day Out 2009

Having attended the Sydney Big Day Out for the past 5 years, it would
be fair to say that being sick of the crowd that attends this event is
an understatement. So, loving Melbourne, I decided to make the trip
