Live Review: Ryan Adams + Jenny Lewis - The Forum, Melbourne (19.07.15)

Jenny Lewis, the former front woman of indie-rock band Rilo Kiley, oozes confidence as she struts on stage. She's wearing a white suit with a rainbow motif while the twinkle in her eye suggests she’s ready to show Melbourne a good time. Lewis and band kicks things off with the Rilo Kiley song, "Silver Lining". It has distinctly pop sound that inspires the five foot tall man in front of me to eagerly bop along. This is preceded "The Moneymaker" and "The Next Messiah", the latter exploring hard hitting blues with a country rock twist to its full potential.

Easily one of the most anticipated headline shows in the second half of 2015, Ryan Adams took to the Forum in Melbourne on Sunday night, supported by Jenny Lewis. Rebecca Houlden headed along and captured some sweet shots from the show!

Live Review: Incubus + Antemasque + Le Butcherettes - The Forum, Melbourne (25.02.15)

One of the mostly anticipated Soundwave sideshows this year has been one of America's most loved rock bands, Incubus. Having blessed the world with music for over twenty years, it was no doubt going to be an incredible nostalgic performance but before they jumped onto stage, punters were spoilt to two fantastic support acts who warmed up the stage.

Possibly one of the most anticipated of the Soundwave Festival sideshows would have to be those Incubus were scheduled to perform. Supported by Antemasque, the US band took to The Forum in Melbourne and whipped out an incredible set - Kimberley Salmond captured these moments from the gig.

Photo Gallery: Joey Bada$$ + Run The Jewels - The Forum, Melbourne (08.01.15)

Joey Bada$$ and Run the Jewels came through Melbourne's Forum Theatre last night, performing two killer sets of hip-hop for the masses. Perri Cassie brings us these shots from the gig.

Live Review: Jimmy Eat World + My Echo - The Forum, Melbourne (17.11.14)

Although Jimmy Eat World's Futures didn't get the same press as Bleed American, it still remains a fan favourite. Between the blistering power chords of single "Pain", the stupidly catchy chorus of title track "Futures" and the bare beauty of "Drugs or Me" it isn't much off a question as to why. So when the announcement was made that the band were touring the album in full for its 10th anniversary, fans went running at the chance to see the under-appreciated sister of Bleed American in all its glory for probably the only time in their lives. It's the only way to explain the packed floor I arrive onto less than 30 minutes after doors.

Rebecca Houlden headed along to see Jimmy Eat World, joined by My Echo at the Forum Theatre in Melbourne, and brings us this photo gallery from the pit.

Live Review: Alt J (∆), Grace - The Forum, Melbourne (06.10.14)

Since Alt J first played in Melbourne at Ding Dong nearly two years ago, a lot has changed for the band. The venues and crowds are bigger, they won a Barclaycard Mercury Prize for their debut album An Awesome Wave late in 2013, and recently released another; This Is All Yours but the adoration of their fans is still as rampant as ever, at this sold out show.

Live Review: Ásgeir + Airling - Forum Theatre, Melbourne (24.07.14)

A strong sense of Déjà vu lingered in the air as I entered Melbourne's Forum Theatre tonight, having last done so a mere 2 months ago for James Vincent McMorrow and the same would have been felt by Brisbane's Airling, who supported the talented Irishman on his tour and now securing the opening spot for his European neighbour in Iceland's very own Ásgeir.

Live Review: Something For Kate - The Forum, Melbourne (18.07.14)

Twenty years on and they’re still selling out shows right around the country. Something For Kate’s 20 year anniversary tour was the culmination of all they’d learned on the road, putting on a truly spectacular performance- not that we would expect any less from the band that helped shape Australia’s ‘90s alternative scene.

Live Review: Dan Sultan + Stonefield - The Forum, Melbourne (17.07.14)

Dan Sultan played a powerful and massively long show for a sold out hometown crowd as part of his Blackbird tour tonight. He treated the audience to some special guests as well as playing a few memorable covers by some of Australia's most talented musicians.

Dan Sultan brought a powerful set to the Forum in Melbourne, backed by the brilliance that is the Findlay sisters, aka Stonefield. Serena Ho brings you this gallery!

Live Review: James Vincent McMorrow - The Forum, Melbourne (27.05.14)

When James Vincent McMorrow takes to the stage, it’s as though someone has pressed play on a CD player. His voice soars over high notes with a peaceful ease, which is breathtaking to witness firsthand. Often compared to Bon Iver, McMorrow is in fact in a league of his own.
