Review: The Falls Music & Arts Festival stands strong amid a jam-packed Australian festival season

January 3, 2017

There was something different about the Falls Music & Arts Festival in 2016. Even now, a few days on from New Year’s Eve, I can’t put my finger on it. Following the Victorian event’s temporary relocation to Mt.

Live Review: Spit Syndicate + NVSTY MILITIA – Rocket Bar, Adelaide (17.06.16)

June 20, 2016

The last time I properly remember Spit Syndicate coming through Adelaide was maybe in 2012. Playing to a handful of people on a Thursday night at then-metal bar Enigma, the fans who had deigned to leave their houses on a weeknight to see the Sydney rappers (plus Joyride on decks) do their thing got a great show.
