Melbourne's iconic Palace Theatre which is the home to one of Melbourne's most loved live music venues is sadly closing down at the end of May, and as the Palace hosts its last week of live shows, Australia's indie-dance trio Rufus, took to the stage for a string of sold out shows as part of their 'World's Within World Tour'.

Live Review: Jake Bugg + The Creases + The Growl - Palace Theatre, Melbourne (16.04.14)

Jake Bugg drew an impressive crowd for his first of two weeknight shows on his second visit to Australia. Frequently labelled as the next Bob Dylan, Bugg has quickly harnessed a cult following for his music that fuses folk with modern rock influences, recently earning him a Brit Award nomination for Best Male Solo Artist.

Live Review: DARKSIDE - The Palace Theatre, Melbourne (04.04.14)

Sadly, I stepped foot inside The Palace Theatre for what will undoubtedly be the last time. I could not have asked for a better final curtain. To put it blatantly, I was not disillusioned with Darkside’s discernably genius treatment of The Palace. To work cohesively with the unencumbered soundscape, to embrace it’s unpredictability and reap the sonic splendors that it so lavishly offers. Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington respectively created an all-encompassing sensory experience that showcased the Palace at it’s finest.

Live Review: Korn + Rob Zombie + Mushroomhead - Palace Theatre, Melbourne (26.02.14)

A tidal wave of American acts hit our shores for Soundwave and its various side waves this week. For any self-respecting music aficionado such choice was a tough call. Who to see? Those with stamina and enough cash could have caught any number of awesome line-ups. One of the most popular, the Mushroomhead, Rob Zombie and Korn line-up sold out before you could say, 'wax my dreads and call me a metal-head'.

Live Review: 5ive - Palace Theatre, Melbourne (03.11.13)

So One Direction have just left Australia after 5 or so weeks of sold out arena shows and whilst teenage girls across the country are currently nursing severe heartbreak from their departure, I have been too busy losing my shit at the fact that 5IVE ARE IN TOWN FOR THEIR GREATEST HITS TOUR.
