Live Review: St Jerome's Laneway Festival - RNA Showgrounds, Brisbane (31.01.14)

Each year when the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival lineup is announced initially there’s both the excitement of spotting a band you’ve always wanted to see and also a vague general intrigue for the few other names you recognise from some blog or other. By the time the festival rolls around however, it’s impossible to imagine what your record collection would be like without half of those bands you were mildly interested in just a short time ago.

Live Review: Franz Ferdinand + The Creases - The Tivoli, Brisbane (17.11.13)

Live Review: The Jungle Giants + Northeast Party House + The Creases - Karova Lounge, Ballarat (05.10.13)

Last time we saw The Jungle Giants grace the stage of Karova Lounge was back in February 2012 as support act for San Cisco. Since then, the Brisbane quartet have been incredibly busy making a name for themselves, appearing at a handful of festivals across the board, touring major cities with the likes of Last Dinosaurs and Ball Park Music, and most recently reaping praise for the release of their much anticipated debut album, Learn To Exist. It was now time to hit the country on their own tour and I was pretty interested to see how much they have developed as a live act to match that headliner status.
