Live Review: The Rubens + Walk The Moon + Bloods - Unibar, Wollongong (23.05.13)

In 2011 The Rubens were playing in a small Wollongong café/pub. Fast forward a mere two years, and the 4-piece sold out the original venue of Unibar to upgrade to the University of Wollongong’s hall to play to adoring fans. No easy feat! After a whirlwind 2012, which saw hit single "My Gun" be blasted on everything from radio stations, to football matches and make it into the top ten for the Triple J’s hottest 100, The Rubens brought their ‘Never Be The Same’ tour back to Wollongong, supported by spunky rockers Bloods and the ever energetic and impressive Walk The Moon.

Live Review: British India - Wollongong UNIBAR, Wollongong (10.05.13)

I'd call myself a fairly seasoned British India goer now. Catching them live for the first time over four years ago, they have always been a great live act to watch. Considering it's been quite some time since I've seen them I was interested to see how their live show had progressed since the release of the highly acclaimed fourth album, Controller.
