Theatre Review: Heathers: The Musical - Brisbane QPAC (Performances through 17th January)

QPAC_Heathers_The_Musical_7-1-16_0057

Whether your faith is a God, the community or a Seers shopping catalogue sometimes we don’t ask the higher powers for something but he gives it to us anyway. Was there a riot demanding the 1988 cult classic Heathers be revamped into a musical? Probably not. But Off-Broadway is one of those whimsical places that bring you not what you ask for but what you’d never think of, and now in Brisbane Heathers: The Musical is waiting for you.

Theatre Review: Les Misérables - QPAC's Lyric Theatre (Performance until January 17th)

Over the past year, QPAC’s Lyric Theatre has been transformed into the African Savannah, the merry old land of Oz, a 1930s luxury liner, and the venue of the Pan-Pacific Grand Prix Dancing Championship. Now, in the final major production of 2015, audiences are transported to the streets of nineteenth century Paris, for the 30th anniversary tour of Cameron Mackintosh’s Les Misérables.

Festival Review: Listen Out - RNA Showgrounds, Brisbane (04.10.15)

Listen Out has come back doing the rounds, the lineup having some fan favourites as well as the Red Bull Music Academy stage coming back to bring young talent. This year the festival was simplified to two stages; this idea of festivals becoming smaller and more manageable continues to prove popular amongst music fans. It seems making it easier and thus cheaper encourages fans to come along. Gone are the days of big extravagant festivals with five or six different stages. In this case, Listen Out offered two stages, Atari and the 909 stage; Atari was outdoors under the huge big top tent while 909 remained indoors providing some awesome pyrotechnics.

Tkay Maidza has been going from strength to strength of late, and tonight truly showed what this pocket powerhouse is capable of. She brought all the noise hipsters out of their hiding places, but this made for a killer vibe in the room.

Live Review: Last Dinosaurs + Palms + The Jensens - The Triffid, Brisbane (25.09.15)

It’s been a month since Last Dinosaurs released their sophomore studio album Wellness. To pay it forward, these indie rockers have kicked off their Australian tour in Brisbane, inviting along their dedicated and loyal fan base; something about their sound and lyrics seem to emanate with Australia’s younger listeners. To appreciate that faithfulness, Last Dinosaurs even put on a specifically Under 18’s show at The Triffid earlier that day, tactfully timed with school holidays. Being the cynical, jaded writers we are, we came along to the 18+ show later that night.

Photo Gallery and Live Review: Wiz Khalifa - Eatons Hill Hotel, Brisbane (27.09.15)

Despite a last minute downsizing of venue (from Riverstage to Eatons Hill Hotel), the faithful turned out in droves to welcome Wiz Khalifa to Brisbane. With a setlist spanning his now decade long career, Khalifa wasted little time jumping into "Taylor Gang" and sprinting and jumping around the stage, and whipping the crowd into a frenzy.
