What could be better than a summer festival with an amazing line-up and an enticing Carnival theme? Nothing, that's what. Stone day Carnie Party is back this year with another excuse to have a good old time with four stages including a silent disco and car park carnival.
Brisbane's Tin Can Radio will be releasing their new EP Open Ears Open Mind next week and to celebrate the new record, the five piece will be hitting the road! Having spent the last few months working solidly on Open Ears Open Mind, Tin Can Radio are itching to get out on the road and bring their new songs to fans and newcomers alike!
TIN CAN RADIO - OPEN EARS OPEN MIND TOUR - SEPT/OCT/NOV 2012
In this week's edition: Figures on how many of us actually consumed live music, make a video for M83, and Magoo makes a move.
We talk to Tin Can Radio in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley to talk about their EP project, upcoming tour, past tour "accidents" and much much more...
Tin Can Radio have been a mainstay of the Brisbane music scene for years and years, and they've very kindly let us here at the the AU review premiere their video for their new single, 'It Goes On'. Have a watch!
Tin Can Radio has to be one of the most underrated bands out there. They work so hard, and yet never seem to reap the rewards that those contemporaries achieve. I can’t understand this, when you attend one of their shows, you just can’t help but feel happy and dance around like an idiot.
It has been quite some time since I have been to the Black Bear Lodge, and probably only the second time since its infamous transformation from The Troubadour. I’d forgotten just what an amazing room it is. Stupidly hot, but incredible. Charlie Mayfair chose this venue for their show celebrating the release of their new EP Fall in Time.
The four bands tonight have two things in common. Lots of brass and lots of hair. For their EP launch, LeSuits brought together a line up of stellar bands for a show that was more than a little weirdly, awesomely crazy.
TIJUANA CARTEL is fresh!
…fresh from weeks of Byron Bay farmhouse solitude; fresh from recording their soon to be released new album…and, after taking the past month off to rejuvenate from those experiences, fresh enough to embark on a national album launch tour of epic Tour de France like proportions!
Brisbane Nanna Nights are continuing to be the place to be on Wednesday nights for a quiet, social dose of entertainment and the gathering of friends, board games, drinks and inexpensive dinner. The recent official launch with Ben Salter and a bunch of his friends proved not only to be an amazing (read: Salter blew heads off!) evening but was also the perfect introduction to a night aiming to be of premium quality each and every week.
Jungle Giants start my night off with a bang. It’s indie pop in the vein of Ball Park Music and headliners SEALS (formerly The Baby Seal Club), which is perfect considering the target audience tonight. The sizable crowd responds quite well to the set; I have a feeling that we’ll be hearing more from Jungle Giants very soon.
SEALS launch their EP Castaways and say farewell to Brisbane before heading off on a UK Tour.
Chase the Sun, Hold the Night, the new release from Tin Can Radio, stumped me. Quite shortly, it is a peaceful album splashed with a multitude of different colours. Every song on this album is different to every other, and so I never grew tired of listening.
