Last night I turned 23. Sure, it wasn’t a milestone year to be celebrated, but all the same, I felt the need to be partying and party hard I did. As if the powers that be were switched on, it just so happened that the Adelaide stop of Yacht Club DJs’ “Mayhem Tour” fell on my birthday and once I had found this out, well, I knew where I would inevitably end up.
Yacht Club DJs have only just dropped their latest mixtape, Find Me a Macchiato Pronto, online yesterday, providing some more mashup fun to get your weekend started. I caught up with one half of the duo, Guy Chappell, before they released the mix, to chat about their upcoming tour, touring with Twinsy and what he wants to see at these next shows.

The country's favourite mash-up duo (our only?), Yacht Club DJs, are going to be out on the road again through the next few months on a tour they've called the "Mayhem Tour". If you've seen the Ballarat duo before, you'll know that mayhem generally ensues roughly five minutes into their sets, so it's no surprise that they've got a whole tour now fully dedicated to it. Tickets are onsale from February 8 - be sure to be a part of this party tour!
YACHT CLUB DJs - THE 'MAYHEM TOUR'
It's pretty cool to have live music on your university campus; it makes O'Weeks and nights spent drinking on even more worthwhile. Good news, students (and non-students), Last Dinosaurs will be coming to your campus or one pretty close by, on 'The First Degree' tour!

The luxury revolution returns! Perth’s premier New Year’s Day event returns for its 7th installment and in 2013, it’s ALL about the Garden Party. Think cucumber sandwiches and rolling lawns; croquet while sipping on a Pimms; flowing, colourful dresses and gents in slacks and hats celebrating Mad Men pastiche. Parasols and the fresh scent of flowers in the air; tea parties, flamingos, cupcakes and sunshine. All by the magnificent Swan River.
