Live Review: The Drums + The Upskirts - Metro Theatre, Sydney (30.11.14)

The Drums should be renamed “The Suns” because this sums up their music to a tee. Their reverb and hook-soaked indie pop music was a real treat for the Sydney dwellers battling a case of impending Mondayitis as well as battling Spring-time rain en route to the Metro on Sunday night. After a solid set boasting tracks that were old, new and in between, there were more than a few youngsters wanting to go surfing or do some other fun activity shortly after.

Festival Review: The Blurst of Times - The Factory Theatre, Sydney (25.10.14)

Guitars and subverted Simpsons t-shirts ruled Blurst of Times' Sydney debut. Its debut went off without a major hitch, even with some last minute timetable shuffling to adjust to. With The Factory Theatre proving to be a perfect space for the event, triumphing over the aural assault that marred OutsideIn last year. This was accomplished without actually putting the Factory Theatre stage to use, utilizing the smaller Fusebox and Factory Floor stages, and the smart move of setting up a main stage outside. Pushing revelries out in to the open air and giving itself a true festival atmosphere.

Live Review: The Upskirts + The Dead Heads + Winston Surfshirt - Brighton Up Bar, Sydney (02.05.14)

The release of 'Mind’s a Burden' has seen The Upskirts stepping up. It and We Could Be A Team has seen the Sydney locals shake the garage rock tag and turned plenty of heads along the way, exemplified by the rowdy hometown crowd that filled out the Brighton Up Bar.
