Arts Review: Video Games Live – Enmore Theatre (30.07.15)

Speak to any video gamer and you’ll find that within the hours of gameplay exists incredibly fond memories- of characters they have bonded with, of excruciatingly difficult levels, of the memorable music that has accompanied them on their journeys across distant lands and into boss battles. Even if they are themselves unaware of presence, play them a little sample and they’ll likely be able to immediately tell you the part of the game in which it played. It is in celebration of these beloved musical memories of video gaming that the concert series Video Games Live exists, and what a celebration!

She describes the tour, as more of a relief to perform the record she took so long to create.

Live Review: Johnny Marr + Flyying Colours - Enmore Theatre, Sydney (20.07.15)

Should Johnny Marr be re-named 'Johnny Young'? That was the question at Marr’s Enmore show in Sydney on Monday night. And it wasn’t because he resembled the former host of Young Talent Time but because the former Smiths guitarist oozed energy and charisma. This was definitely a case of a charming man looking half his age but playing with the virtuosity of a hardened axeman over double his age.

Live Review: Porter Robinson - Enmore Theatre, Sydney (22.07.15)

Cartoons and confetti on a weeknight sound like a child’s dream and Porter Robinson’s Worlds show at the Enmore Theatre was a dream of sorts. He moved through the new record almost seamlessly with striking visuals and festival-sized effects that made it feel like there was more than one young producer up on stage.

Sydney Comedy Festival Review: Luke Heggie - Enmore Theatre (Performances to May 2nd)

Luke Heggie sounds like a grouch. He might be a nice guy but, he is ready to offend, the thought of it seems to excite him. He expects it, someone to be pissed off or offended by his cross section of suburban Australian culture. His show Your Not That Special follows the loose structure of the characters that you meet at your standard Australian backyard BBQ. Few people are spared, from self serious gym junkies to doomsday prepper ex-cops to smoking shop owners and spa’s.
