Live Review: sleepmakeswaves + Gay Paris - Adelaide Unibar (29.05.15)

Photo: Stuart Sevastos.

Having missed sleepmakeswaves at Jive the last time they were in Adelaide, I knew I couldn't miss out on seeing them again, as it was quite obvious the momentum generating around their music was only continuing to grow stronger and stronger. They were upgrading venues with each tour, so going from seeing them blow the roof off the small Cranka bandroom back in 2013 to seeing them now performing at the Adelaide Unibar in 2015, was an experience I was glad to have been a part of.

Live Review: PilotFest - Space Theatre, Adelaide (24.01.14)

The Adelaide creative industry has been rearing its head as a strong contender in producing some of the country's most exciting experimental and left-of-centre music and art in recent times. We're not content with just being a festival state for two months of the year and as more and more proactive individuals get their projects off the ground off their own backs, it's becoming more and more noticeable that this industry is not one that looks to hibernate once the Fringe and Festival wraps up each year.

Live Review: Fire! Santa Rosa, Fire! + Founds + Sparkspitter - Jive, Adelaide (23.06.12)

Fire Santa Rosa Fire

Sometimes it’s nice to sit down at gigs. Standing really can be overrated... especially when comfy couches are involved. Last time I was at Jive it was a sold out madhouse, tonight the vibe was a lot more ‘glass of wine’ than ‘jager-bomb’ and so it started with a crowd of about twenty mainly made up of band members, family, friends and devotees.
