Twenty One Pilots came through Sydney last night to a brilliant reception from fans. Check out Gwendolyn Lee's photos of the headline set at the Metro Theatre!
Tim Rogers knows how to entertain a crowd. Match him up with The Bamboos and there is no way that the crowd can resist dancing. A great night out with these consummate entertainers. Local band The Rememberz also captured the audience's heart. John Goodridge was there and brings you these photos.
Last night, The AU Sessions returned to The Hive Bar in Erskineville for our fifth instalment, featuring local artists Lincoln and Ed Wells. Both talented artists graced us with the accompaniment of a keyboard - while Ed also had a backing guitarist to round out his amazing sound. We may be a bit bias, but we think it was the best AU Sessions yet!
The Milk Carton Kids, on their three city whistle-stop tour of Australia, played in Melbourne last night at the gorgeous surrounds of the Athenaeum Theatre. Wollongong based singer-songwriter Timothy James Bowen filled the support slot.

Pictured: Cruisin’ Deuces
Presented by Lost Highway Australia, the Country and Inner Western monthly music nights at The Basement are only getting better and better. Offering the best mix of alt-country, bluegrass, Americana and folk on offer on Australian shores, this event well and truly meets the growing demand for such gloriously heartfelt, toe-tapping live music. On Wednesday 24th June, Harry Love, Lucky Luke and his Shooting Stars and Cruisin’ Deuces all took to the stage to woo their loving audiences – a growing crowd that indisputably ate up the exuberant performances.
The stars of the Chinese music scene walked the red carpet for the 26th Golden Melody Awards at Taipei Arena, Taiwan.

Ross Knight of the Cosmic Psychos got up during Dune Rats' set and described them as the bastard sons of the bastard fathers. Which about sums it up. The night started fairly reasonably with Adelaide's Horror My Friend but once the Cosmic Psychos played and the Dune Rats hit the stage it descended into anarchy. There was stage invasions, shoeys and the inevitable post shoey spew, madness and mayhem.
Jebediah came through Adelaide for their Slightly Odway 20th anniversary tour this week and long-time fan Lauren Connelly was there to capture some snaps!
