Those kids from the 90's, Jebediah, are back. It's their 20th anniversary and it's time to party with one hell of a tour. To celebrate their first night in Melbourne, punk rockers Bodyjar are the opening act. They kick things off with a few songs from their 98 album, No Touch Red, before playing an assortment of tracks from Plastic Skies and Role Model. Loud and crunchy guitar riffs populate the set as Bodyjar fill the room with an energy that can only be relieved by breaking out into a skank. 'Too Drunk To Drive' brings back vivid memories of their 80's themed video clip and Adalita prancing about like a giant dork alongside a poker faced singer, Cam Baines. However it's 'Not The Same' and the cover of 'Hazy Shade of Winter' that truly demonstrates their punk prowess.
Jebediah are touring the country to celebrate their 20th birthday, with Bodyjar along for the ride. Rebecca Houlden was at their Corner Hotel gig on Wednesday night and brings us these photos:

It’s often an exciting, if not nerve-wracking experience to speak to one of your heroes. Scott Aitken tries to keep his cool as he chats with Joy Division and New Order co-founder Peter Hook about resurrecting songs from the band’s past, Ian Curtis’s favourite reggae song, and his upcoming New Order book.

As it seemed most of Melbourne were dressing as cats and making their way to the Katy Perry concert (#katycats), an nonetheless impressive contingent of the city's less under-16 female crowd filled up the Corner Hotel for the second of two just-about-sold-out performances from Manchester Orchestra, supported by Ballarat's Apes and Brooklyn based Kevin Devine.
The beautiful and talented Megan Washington sang a beautiful set previewing new songs from her upcoming album There There, due out in September. It was emotional, uplifting and an all-round honest performance by the lady who wears her heart on her sleeve.
