SYDNEY FESTIVAL

Sydney Festival Theatre Review: Othello The Remix - Seymour Centre (23.01.14)

There have been countless modern adaptations of Shakespeare’s works, some even set in high end Glaswegian restaurants like the BBC remark of Macbeth as an ambitious chef in waiting starring James McAvoy. So when the Chicago based Q Brothers’ ‘ad-rap-tation’ of Othello was added to the Sydney Festival bill it was met with a mixture of scepticism and curiosity.

Sydney Festival Photo Gallery: Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins + Citizen Kay + Milan - Sydney Town Hall (23.01.14)

We take you back to Paradiso at Sydney Town Hall for Sydney Festival, with Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins, supported by Citizen Kay and Milan.

Sydney Festival Live Review: Cat Power - Circus Ronaldo Tent (24.01.14)

A sold out crowd gathered in the Ronaldo tent to see an afternoon solo set by Cat Power (Chan Marshall). Like the best of her music, the performance inside the tiny tent can be described in one word; intimate.

Sydney Festival Live Review: Big Star's Third Tribute feat. Tim Rogers, Cat Power, Kurt Vile, Kim Salmon, Edwyn Collins & Dave Faulkner - Enmore Theatre (23.01.14)

Big Star were a cult band but their influence has been far-reaching. The likes of R.E.M., The Flaming Lips, Belle & Sebastian and The Replacements have all cited them as influences and their music has been covered by Placebo, Jeff Buckley, Yo La Tengo and Elliott Smith, to name a few. They are the little band that could and it is Jody Stephens, the group’s drummer and sole-surviving original member who is keeping their music alive with tribute nights like Big Star’s Third.

Sydney Festival Live Review: Kurt Vile & The Violators + Shining Bird - Sydney Town Hall (22.01.14)

There are people who court fame and celebrity and then there’s artists like Kurt Vile. The Philadelphia native is one unlikely musician because while he is great at writing colourful, psychedelic tunes, you do get the sense that he’d be much happier playing in a studio than to a sold-out, Sydney crowd. But just as many shoe gaze acts have proven, you don’t necessarily have to strut around like a peacock or be a showman to cause a stir in the audience.

Sydney Festival Theatre Review: Ockham's Razor - Seymour Centre (21.01.14)

UK Company Ockham's Razor are known for graceful acrobatics, concentrated into acclaimed theatrical works that playfully dabble in topics such as love, power, and death.

Sydney Festival Live Review: Hive (Tyondai Braxton) + 100 Million Nights (Canyons + Daniel Boyd) - Sydney Opera House (21.01.14)

The relationship between music and visuals was explored with Tyondai Braxton's and Canyons' performance for the Sydney Festival. While it often felt more like an art exhibit then a concert, it was certainly a unique experience.

Sydney Festival Live Review: Mick Harvey + Alex Cameron - Sydney Town Hall (19.01.14)

Revered Australian musician Mick Harvey needs no introduction to those heavily involved in the scene, despite him being better known as one of Nick Cave’s closest collaborators and one of The Black Seeds. His influence on our country’s music as unquestionable, much like his prodigious talent as a multi-instrumentalist, record producer, composer, and singer-songwriter.
