Songs the NT should be turning up for ahead of BASSINTHEGRASS 2015!

This Saturday, an impressive contingent of some of the country's best touring acts will fly north to spend the weekend in Darwin at the Bassinthegrass music festival. While the rest of us look ahead to the freezing winter section of the music calendar, Northern Territorians get to soak up some amazing live music in the tropical climate many are envious of. Instead of hooking you up with an artist's hit single to hype you Darwinians up for the festival, we take a look at the artists below and some their finer cuts from recent releases you should get around in the lead up to Saturday's event.

Photo Gallery: Territory Rock Festival ft. Unbroken Expanse, Roymackonkey + more - The Chippo, Darwin (25.01.15)

Like the preverbal Aussie BBQ - a delectable smorgasbord of Territory talent was served up by The Chippo Darwin at the Territory Rock Festival on the Australia Day long weekend. It was the lineup you wanted to be apart of, with some bands travelling 988km for the gig. Two stages, nine acts and meat pies for sale at the bar… yep it was perfect.

Live Review: Steve Smyth + Roymackonkey - Darwin Railway Club (08.03.13)

Steve Smyth

Right, well, it may as well be laid out now that this is a rave review. I’m throwing in the introductory paragraph towel, I’m afraid. No introductory paragraph towel could really do any kind of adequate mopping of the sweat on the superior brow of this gig, so I’m casting it aside as the useless bit of literary scaffolding it is and replacing it with a premature conclusion: Steve Smyth is fucking terrific. Go see him. Go. Go. Go.

Go see him. Go. Go. Go. But if you can’t drop everything and go right now I guess we can rewind this ole VHS of a rave review for Steve Smyth and accompanying drummer Brock Fitzgerald (of Wolf and Cub repute) – rewind back…

Live Review: David Spry and The Moral High Ground + Room 105 + Roymackonkey + The Wicked Garden + Emma Rowe - Darwin Entertainment Centre (23.02.13)

David Spry

There are several excellent S.L.A.M day events happening across Darwin today, suitable compensation for the fact that the long overdue monsoon - only just begun to shower relief over the Top End - has been “stolen” yet again by a large low (now going by 'Cyclone Rusty') over Western Australia. Punters have a choice of catching a local band or two at a few venues, most notably the Darwin Entertainment Centre (DEC) which has temporarily converted its balcony bar into a balmy outdoor venue for some three or four hours of local live music.
