Daniel Bolt brings us the second half of photos from Groovin' The Moo in Canberra, ft. Flume, The Temper Trap (pictured), They Might Be Giants, The Kooks, Tame Impala, Pez and Frightened Rabbit.
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.

Larry Heath chatted to Melbourne rapper PEZ just a couple of hours before he hit the stage in Sydney yesterday for his "Back in the Game" tour. Here is the video in two parts!
Last Saturday saw some of the worlds' tastiest bands play for the under-18 festival "Live it Up" at Brisbane's RNA Showgrounds - such as The Amity Affliction and The Getaway Plan and many more!. Happy vibes all 'round despite the in-climate weather. Jacob Schneider shot these photos with a grin ear to ear the whole day.
When you’re a student who lives at Uni and whose few ventures into the outside world tend to be going out after dark it’s very easy to forget that there are underagers in the world. But in reality it was only a couple of years ago that I was eagerly counting down the days till I turned 18 so I could finally get out to gigs. And so with that in mind I really do appreciate concerts with an underage focus such as Live It Up Music Festival.
Everybody’s selling out in this week’s tour update, and not in the bad way either, with Vance Joy, Tool, They Might Be Giants and Aerosmith all having sell out shows, and with a heap of bands adding extra shows due to the dutiful screams of their fans.
Vance Joy to play third Northcote Social Club this month!
After selling out two shows at Northcote Social Club, Vance Joy is caving in to demand again and playing a third and final show at the venue on April 28.
Pez will be back on the road and performing for the masses this year, three years after his last headline run around the country. His 2009 tour saw him supported by some up and coming lads by the name of 360 and Seth Sentry, two examples of Pez's enduring impact on the Australian hip-hop scene. Pez's "Back In the Game" tour will run for 21 dates, giving his fans the opportunity to see what Pez has been working solidly on to feature on his long-awaited sophomore record, The Game.
Sure, school may be back in session now, but the kids of Brisbane have cause to celebrate because there's going to be a kickass under 18's only music festival to look forward to!

This year’s Pyramid Rock Festival on Phillip Island in Victoria will be remembered by me not only as a paddock full of beer cans and flocks of seagulls. It will instead be remembered as the New Years Eve that someone threw a basketball at Dominic Simper of Tame Impala’s face. But let’s go back to the beginning, a time of sobriety and a lot less violence.
As ARIA week is upon us, Inertia put some of their finest talents on show for the Aussie hip-hop showcase at the Oxford Art Factory last night, a night that did NOT disappoint.
Yep, you read that headline right.
Next year's Clipsal 500 in Adelaide will be bringing the two iconic bands to the city to headline the Sunday night concert. The three day concert series has always managed to bring a decent mix of bands to accompany the car races; check out the line up below!
