The Ripping Dylans - Ruby Rabbit (01.10.08)

Sydney’s newest live music night is Wednesdays at Ruby Rabbit on Oxford Street, in which a local up-and-coming band is given the rare opportunity to headline, with guest DJs and performance artists rounding the rest of the night off. And in the second week of their new event, Ruby Rabbit welcomed to the stage Sydney’s Rock three-piece, The Ripping Dylans.

Peabody + The Silents + Made in Japan - Candy's Apartment (25.09.2008)

A surprisingly small crowd featured at this Thursday night gig, and I myself missed the opening act Made in Japan, but nonetheless both The Silents from Perth and Sydney's own Peabody put on a stirring performance for those who turned up, including The Silent’s label mates The Vines.

Van She + Lost Valentinos - The Peninsular Lounge (10.09.08)

After finding their album to be a little lack-lustrous, I was eager to see what Van she had to offer live, and so when the opportunity arose to go see these Modular-darlings I snaffled it right up, to see if any possible life could be brought out in the songs that on record just felt so flat.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre + The Lovetones - The HiFi Bar (30.08.08)

I was majorly excited about tonight because a) it has been ages since I’ve seen a band that has had to travel more than three hours by plane to get to Melbourne and b) BECAUSE IT IS THE BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE!!!

The Kooks + Dash and Will - Metro Theatre (27.08.08)

It's taken a bloody long time for The Kooks to finally make it to our shores - and this, their first of 3 Sydney shows (if the MySpace one counts), finally gave audiences what they'd been waiting so long for. And didn't disappoint!

Death Cab for Cutie + An Horse - Enmore Theatre (18.08.08)

After traveling around the world several times, seeing concerts all over the place along the way, last week's Death Cab for Cutie concert in Sydney proved one thing to me: We have some of the rudest crowds in the world.
