Chicago is transformed by Lollapalooza every year, giving the some 100,000 attendees, alongside those who didn't get a ticket, the chance to experience the bands and the flavour of the incredible music that the event offers.

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.

the AU interview: Microwave Jenny (Central Coast) on their latest EP, recording in London and touring with Sheppard

the AU review recently joined Tessa and Brendon of folk duo, Microwave Jenny for an interview in Surry Hills. The interview started on a dangerous note for a pregnant Tessa, “Don’t make me laugh, I’ll wet my pants!” and the pair explained how they found inspiration from JK Rowling in naming their latest work, Microwave Jenny and the Six Song EP, now available on iTunes, “We couldn’t think of a title and I love Harry Potter, so we thought ‘why not just go with how Harry Potter titles their books?’”

Watch Lisa Mitchell and Jake Clemons perform Sheppard's "Geronimo" at the 2015 APRA Awards

Earlier this week at the APRA Awards - which took place at Carriageworks in Sydney - artists joined together for unique collaborations to cover the songs that were nominated for APRA Song of the Year. It's an annual tradition at the Awards and it's always an entertaining and unique part of the night. We'll be posting all the performances from the event, thanks to Moshcam, and first up we have Lisa Mitchell and Jake Clemons performing Sheppard's "Geronimo". The result completely re-imagines the popular track:

Live Review: Sheppard + Microwave Jenny - The Astor Theatre, Perth (16.10.14)

On Thursday night I went to what I’m pretty sure was my first ever “pop” concert. I mean I’ve been to plenty of gigs, but Sheppard’s concert, their last of the current Australian tour, at Perth’s Astor Theatre, was probably my first ever proper “pop” concert – you know with the “young” (in some cases very young) screaming fans and such.
