May 10, 2016

‘We play rain, hail or shine’ has never been more relevant than in 2016 for Perth festivals, however the Bunbury leg of Groovin’ The Moo managed to march on through the temperamental weather with some killer acts without resorting to doing the worm through a giant mud puddle. While for those staying outside of Bunbury, getting on […]

Festival Review: Groovin’ The Moo – Prince of Wales Showgrounds, Bendigo (30.04.16)

May 2, 2016

A distinct lack of mooing was made up for by a whole lot of groovin’, with Groovin’ The Moo rolling through the Prince of Wales Showground in Bendigo for another year.

April 24, 2016

Making the way up the F3 on what’s become an annual pilgrimage to the Maitland Showground for the 2016 edition of Groovin The Moo, the weather and travel gods weren’t playing too nice as the convoy of punters hit unneeded rain, traffic and in my case a near empty petrol tank.

Live Review: Drapht + Muph & Plutonic + Thundamentals + Briggs – Palace Theatre (23.09.11)

September 26, 2011

I normally don’t head to hip hop shows. After tonight, I probably won’t head to another hip hop gig for a while. For starters, it was a very cold, very uninviting night to head on out to a gig for. I had been put in a bad mood by security already (note to self: don’t […]
