Live Review: West Thebarton Brothel Party - Jive, Adelaide (22.08.15)

The West Thebarton Brothel Party boys packed Jive out well on Saturday night, the official launch party for their debut self-titled EP. The band has been growing a strong fan base in Adelaide in recent months and their time supporting some pretty impressive Australian and international names, has brought them to the attention of many different type of Adelaide music fan who may be on the look out for something new. Their gathering at Jive represented not only the supportive network of fellow Adelaide musicians and friends within these circles, but a good percentage of people looking to kick on well into their Saturday night - the chaos the boys brought to the show was the perfect way to do so.

It's been 13 years since ...Trail Of Dead have performed in Adelaide, but last night they kicked off their national tour at Jive with Sincerely, Grizzly and shit got gnarly. Lauren Connelly was there!

Live Review: Marlon Williams - Jive, Adelaide (02.07.15)

The magic Marlon Williams conjures on stage is something I've not seen in a live music environment for quite some time. He comes through Jive, a venue on Adelaide's west end, with an old-timey charm and an alt-country/folk music fusion that sets hearts aflutter before breaking them into tiny pieces with some powerful lyrical storytelling. Yet, in between songs when he's introducing his band, warning the crowd an upcoming guitar solo might not be up to scratch or throwing back to high school days with his band mates, the man who stands before us is a friendly and down to earth 20-something from Lyttelton, New Zealand.

Live Review: Last Dinosaurs + I Know Leopard + It's a Hoax - Jive, Adelaide (03.07.15)

On Friday night Brisbane’s Last Dinosaurs took to the stage at Jive and delivered one of the most well-received performances you’re likely to see. The boys were touring (it finished up at the Amplifier in Perth on Saturday) in support of their new single “Evie”, which has been getting some solid rotation on Triple J of late.

Live Review: Gold Fields + KLP + Problems - Jive, Adelaide (26.06.15)

It's been a while since I've seen Gold Fields perform. Aside from a late night set at BIGSOUND last year where they suffered from the bullshit noise restrictions limiting the quality of the actual show, the last time the Ballarat band was in Adelaide they were touring debut album Black Sun to a pumping Jive. Friday night saw them return with KLP as part of their current joint Australian tour and it was great to see them back.

Live Review: Yacht Club DJs + Cabin Cults - Jive, Adelaide (28.11.14)

The Yacht Club DJs have been a strong part of the Australian party fabric for as long as I can remember. The first memory I have of them is a stage invasion they prompted at Parklife one year. The first proper time I saw the Ballarat duo was at The Gov, I think, which was a hectic evening of music all its own. Gaz and Guy's visits to Adelaide have always resulted in good times, regardless of whether they're playing sets at festivals or in smaller clubs up the city's grimy West End. Their final shows around the country, 'The Hooroo Tour', saw the twosome put up in Jive for a two night run, having sold out the first show in good timing, with the second almost hitting capacity as well.

Live Review: The Griswolds + Castlecomer - Jive, Adelaide (17.10.14)

The Griswolds' Australian tour has been a while in the making for many fans. Their debut album, Be Impressive, was received incredibly well upon its release a few months back, though it's fair to say a lot of the excitement surrounding the record also came down to the fact that Australian fans hadn't seen the Sydney band play many gigs extensively through 2014. Instead, the band has been generating a strong international fan base, touring and appearing at festivals in the US for the past few months. It made sense that their Australian album tour would be popularly attended and as Adelaide falls on the midway mark of their run around the country, it's glaringly evident that The Griswolds are becoming quite the powerhouse live band.

Photo Gallery: King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard + The Murlocs + The Dunes - Jive Bar, Adelaide (25.09.14)

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard always have a show full of energy, crazy guitar faces and driving riffs. The wonderful Murlocs supported, complete with guitarist on crutches. Local band The Dunes started the evening off with their dark psychedelic sounds. Our photographer John Goodridge was there and captured some photos.

Live Review: Andy Bull + New Navy - Jive, Adelaide (18.09.14)

"Where were you ten years ago?!" Andy Bull deadpans, during the encore of his set, before laughing, "No seriously, I appreciate you all a lot. Thank you and see you next time." It's one of those moments where you laugh, but if you've been a fan of his for the last however many years, part of you does think, 'Well? Where was this crowd?' Standing in a venue which was barely full for the Sydney musician when he last headlined here some time ago now, now completely sold out, brings with it a sense of accomplishment...and I'm not even the artist. Being an Adelaide-based music fan, seeing a musician being able to crack this city and sell it out on a weeknight is a commendable feat on its own and Andy Bull made sure the crowd got what they paid for.

Photo Gallery: The Motive EP launch - Jive, Adelaide (21.06.14)

Live Review: Northeast Party House + Flamingo + Cabin Cults - Jive, Adelaide (19.06.14)

The frenzied sounds of Brissy band Northeast Party House consumed west-end music venue, Jive on Thursday night. Kicking off with a dominating set by local electro pop troupe Cabin Cults, the night started with a bang... or a cowbell, to be exact.

Photo Gallery: DZ Deathrays + Palms + Foam - Jive, Adelaide (17.05.14)

DZ Deathrays are heading round the country for their "Black Rat" album tour. Hitting Jive with moshing, stage diving and crowd surfing, the night was wild and manic. Our photographer John Goodridge was there and brings you these pics.
