Getting hit by food poisoning usually makes most humans curl up around the toilet bowl with pale skin.

If he hadn't told the crowd 6th song in, no one would have guessed.

Beresford Launch feat. The Vines + Zowie - Beresford Upstairs (30.06.11)

I'd like to preface this article with something I feel is important: I have a feeling that the following article may come across as disingenuous to some. Trying to "suck up" to the people behind the new venue. Some may suggest we were paid for the article. But neither is the case. I very much mean everything I am about to say.

Architecture In Helsinki + Zowie - Hi-Fi Bar and Ballroom (26.05.11)

I arrived at the Hi-Fi Bar just as Zowie was coming onstage. It took little more than a song to form an opinion of her and to put it bluntly I wasn’t a fan. The songs, while sounding good, just didn’t do enough to get me involved.

Where his 2010 event was very much about the star power, 2011 saw Perez Hilton turn the focus of his annual “One Night in Austin” party to the music – celebrating a selection of often lesser known international artists – including some Aussies and Kiwis – who he had been enjoying during SXSW, and in recent months.

With the music portion of SXSW officially kicking off today, so did the mountain of day parties to conquer: free food, free booze and a whole heap of amazing music. I first headed to the annual Canadian Blast BBQ in the park opposite the convention centre, fitting in a few interviews which you’ll see soon, with Buck 65 and others.

Future Music Festival - Rymill Park, Adelaide (14.3.11)

March in Adelaide is truly a magical time. Unicorns? Perhaps not, but there are a number of amazing, back-to-back festivals.
