Django Django’s show at The Metro was the largest one they’ve ever performed in Sydney. The Scotland-via-London group keep on going from strength-to-strength having released their critically acclaimed, eponymous debut album and will be headlining the NME Awards Tour in the UK next month. Their second show in Sydney in just six months was a solid performance and further proof of the band’s ability to continue on the steep rise up.
Sydney was expecting its hottest day in 50 years and no surprises, The Hives were taking full responsibility. It was a bold statement. But it was an unsurprising one to come from those garage rockers who have anointed themselves, “The world’s greatest live act” and “Your new favourite band”. The truth is that while they didn’t actually achieve the feat of bringing the sun closer to the earth like they’d said, they still put on one scorching, energetic and shit-hot show at the Metro.
Last January, Niche Productions put on one of the year’s best parties, bringing down Flying Lotus and throwing in experimental super-duos like Africa Hitech to give punters nothing but the best in a variety of styles.
A strew of lo-fi-loving hipsters filled The Metro theatre last week as Californian surf-rock group, Best Coast, took the stage for their headlining Falls and Southbound sideshow.

The Metro hosted two members of alt-rock royalty just before Christmas. This man and woman made beautiful music together and are known to us as Evan Dando and Juliana Hatfield. They’re also present friends; one-time enemies; long-time collaborators and are both current members of The Lemonheads. So naturally, the set drew largely from the group’s discography and famous covers; as well as the individuals’ solo material, Hatfield’s former band, Blake Babies and much more.

Sydney’s A-Team Tour was held yesterday afternoon at the Metro Theatre. Hosted by Timothy Delaghetto and Ricky Shucks, Andrew Garcia was the opening act for the show. Garcia is a member of YTF – a multi-talented Youtube group consisting of Ryan Higa, Chester See, Victor Kim, DTRIX and JR Aquino, and successfully opened the show by performing Justin Bieber’s ‘Somebody to Love’ and one of Maroon 5’s classics, ‘Sunday Morning’.
