Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt has been making headlines unsurprisingly while touring NZ and Australia this month, but it was all love when the young rapper came through Melbourne. Perri Cassie was down at the Prince Bandroom to see him do his thing and brings us these snaps.

Splendour Sideshow Review: Azealia Banks + Ivan Ooze - Prince Bandroom, Melbourne (26.07.15)

Here in Australia to play Splendour in the Grass, U.S singer, songwriter, actress and model Sky Ferreira, has some seriously adoring fans. Taking to the Prince Bandroom stage looking like a tired but effortlessly cool schoolgirl in a beanie and hoodie, it's hard to comprehend the huge international following this 22-year-old carries. That is, until she opens her mouth.

Live Review: Kodaline + The Trouble With Templeton - Prince Bandroom, Melbourne (05.04.14)

A young and enthusiastic crowd assembled well before doors opening on Saturday night for a chance to see Irish band Kodaline (previously 21 Demands) on their first Australian tour.

Live Review: London Grammar + Vancouver Sleep Clinic - Prince Bandroom, St Kilda (09.01.14)

Whenever I go to a music festival, I tend to group the bands and artists based on sacrifice. There will be a few that I don’t even consider watching, a few I would really like to see but wouldn’t be overly bothered if I miss, and then the very selective few that I HAVE to see and will NOT even compromise on. London Grammar fell into group number three at Falls Festival in Lorne just the other week.

British Trio London Grammar played to a sold out Prince Bandroom in Melbourne last Thursday night. Rebecca Houlden was there to bring you these pictures.

Live Review: Solange + Movement + Juggernaut DJ’s – Prince Bandroom, St Kilda (07.01.14)

She may not be selling out arena sized shows like her older sister but the demand to see Solange live in Australia has proved to be incredibly high, having pulled huge crowds for her recent appearances at Falls Festival, Southbound and Field Day as well as selling out her two exclusive sideshows in Melbourne and Sydney. Melbourne was up first and with the line already extending down Fitzroy Street half an hour before doors opened, there was no questioning just how keen fans were to get as close as possible to the indie pop darling.

After capturing only a glimpse of the man at the recent Boogie Fest, AU photographer Chloe Ryan headed along to Justin Townes Earl's second Melbourne gig to get more of taste.

Live Review: Neon Indian + Snakadaktal + Miami Horror DJs - Prince Bandroom (24.02.12)

It was a stifling night in Melbourne, and the revellers were out in force, making quick work of the bar service in an attempt to stave off the unrelenting heat. While the general dick-headed behaviour of the heavily intoxicated punters was unpleasant, unfortunately, the music was too. This was due largely to the atrocious sound in the venue, that saw the night full of feedback, distortion, washed out vocals, and, in general, an incredibly painful, off-balance mix.

Jeff Martin 777 + The Eternal + The Joe Kings - The Prince Band Room, Melbourne (06.05.11)

I hadn’t been to The Prince Band Room for years but was eager to reacquaint myself with a place that holds a lot of good memories of bands of yore and fun party nights. I arrived on this particular Friday with the hope that the night would also be memorable for the right reasons. The Joe Kings were part way through their set when I found my way into the venue. There wasn’t the usual queue outside and the room itself was a quarter full, (or ¾ empty if you’re a glass half empty type of person) and I was relishing the thought of having Jeff Martin almost all to myself.
