Van She don’t just make great music, they also give a fuck. To try and get you to give one too, they’ve joined the GIVVA FORK fundraising event at The Standard this month (March 30th) to help get more food in to the schools of Laos.
The band will be joined by Elizabeth Rose, Polographia and Olympic Ayres, for the GIVVA FORK party, with tickets available now for $15(+bf).
Back in January when I asked Chazwick Bundick (the musical brains behind Toro Y Moi) what we could expect from his anticipated Australian tour, he replied: “Expect pyrotechnics and stripper poles with a lazer show and hologram strippers!!! That and four dudes on stage holding it down to the max.” At his sold-out show at Sydney’s The Standard, Bundick did not disappoint. Well, not on the latter statement at least.
By 8:30pm on this particular Wednesday evening, The Standard had reached capacity. Faced with a sprawling queue to gain entry, it was evident from the start that the debut Australian performance of Childish Gambino had been eagerly anticipated.
Childish Gambino conquered his way through an energetic set just days before his appearance at the first leg of the Big Day Out in Sydney. Lachlan Mitchell brings us these photos...
What strikes me is how terrifically easy it is to imagine Unknown Mortal Orchestra frontman Ruban Nielson being born a few decades earlier than he actually was. The somewhat enigmatic New Zealander could have blended in quite well with 60’s psychedelia, perhaps joined a moody early-70’s krautrock outfit, or even laid down some smooth jazz-fusion in cramped all-night clubs; UMO are a true musical multi-hybrid.
When it comes to music’s battlefield, I have always been a jedi, justly aligned with the powers of rock. But the force was disturbed this Friday night at The Standard when Sam Sparro took to the stage and I found myself going to the darkside, where pop reigns supreme!

Bridget Hustwaite from the AU review asked Mikah Freeman from The Aston Shuffle a few questions about dislocating joints and dislocating Canberra. Not really, we love you Canberra! How can anyone be a hater when they've given us The Aston Shuffle!
