Live Review: All Time Low + Fireworks - The Hi-Fi, Melbourne (25.02.15)

All Time Low @ The HiFi Melbourne 250215

There aren't too many things in life that are certain, but the few things that are include death, taxes, and hilariously entertaining All Time Low headline shows. Melbourne's Hi-Fi played host to the pop-punk royalty four piece, with fellow American punk rockers Fireworks the support act as the sold-out venue was treated to nearly two and a half hours of uncompromising fun.

Live Review: Mac Demarco + The Murlocs - The Hi-Fi Melbourne (03.02.14)

When the effervescent Agnes De Marco introduces the support act for her son’s show at The HiFi bar in Melbourne, red wine in one hand, the other hand neatly resting on her popped hip, you know you’re about to witness a very atypical indie rock performance. I had it on good report that Mac De Marco and his four-piece band enjoy putting on a raucous performance in their shows, testing not only their physical and mental boundaries, but also the audience’s. As I stepped down the tall staircase and into the standing area, intoxicated by the promise of potential nudity, discordant jamming, and maybe some ad hoc crowd surfing, I was met with equal amounts of trepidation and excitement.

Live Review: The War On Drugs - The Hi-Fi Bar, Melbourne (11.12.14)

Potentially being my last gig of the year, The War On Drugs certainly left their mark as one of my favourite shows of 2014 by playing a beautiful set of dreamy numbers that induced a spiritual experience I didn't expect.

Live Review: Band Of Skulls- The Hi-Fi, Melbourne (17.06.14)

Before I begin this review and slather (well deserved) praise on Band Of Skulls, I would like to throw a huge virtual high five to the 6'5 guy who carried a young woman who had collapsed in the heat and hustle of the front row to safety. Punters like you are few and far between, and your actions were completely badass. Random giant guy, you are a legend.

It's been twelve months since Kingswood played in Melbourne last and they were back to promote their newest single "Sucker Punch". Tonight, the Kingswood boys transported us back to the good old rock and roll days of the 1960's, with a super energetic set that featured flying pizza.

Live Review: Eagles of Death Metal + Rocket From The Crypt + Mutemath - The Hi-Fi Bar, Melbourne (24.02.14)
