Channel [V] is returning to Splendour this year, enlisting Adalita and Tkay Maidza to take the reins in handling all [V]’s official interviews on ground.

Theatre Review: American Idiot‘s Adelaide debut proves to be as much rock show as it is theatre

January 22, 2018

From the very first riff at the beginning of the title track, American Idiot sounded different. Even in 2004 – when baggy jeans were still cool and I was still using a CD Walkman (because iPods were too expensive) – I knew this was going to be huge. Not being old enough to have experienced […]

Live Review: Midnight Oil remind Melbourne of their music’s still-crucial significance at the first of three shows

November 7, 2017

As someone who grew up on the music of Midnight Oil (as I think most people who came up in the 90’s did), I never thought I would be in the position to see the band perform, much less be in a professional capacity to see the band perform. But there I sat yesterday evening, six […]

Live Review: A Day On The Green ft. Garbage + The Temper Trap + The Preatures + Tash Sultana + Adalita – Bimbadgen Winery, Hunter Valley (03.12.16)

December 6, 2016

A Day on the Green is a unique touring event, halfway between a music festival and a classy day out among the grapes. There’s something poetic about the way punters begin the day with picnic blankets and cheese platters and end it dancing with strangers in a drunken haze. Saturday afternoon in the Hunter Valley, […]

But upon first glance of this season’s bill, I couldn’t help but feel that one of the acts was the odd one out. There […]

Live Review: Heart Of St Kilda Concert ft. Paul Kelly – Palais Theatre (27.06.2011)

June 29, 2011

There was a touch of trepidation going to The Heart of St Kilda concert at The Palais. Many of the acts weren’t really musicians that I would go out of my way to see a full concert over. It was a slightly odd feeling in all honesty, in that we were supporting a good cause […]
