live review: oh pep! at howler, 28.04.2017

Iryna Byelyayeva
No comments

When I first walked into Howler’s spacious band room the crowd was sparse but the warm, orange and yellow lighting was already setting the mood. Closet Straights didn’t keep us waiting long, bringing their cool, folky vibes to the stage. Their country-esque fashion sense, rolling guitar riffs and the warm lighting transformed the empty room…

live music review: i know leopard, the workers club, 27 march 2014

Rhiannon Tuffield

Photo by: Rhiannon Tuffeild Tiny candles and the odd light bulb line the wood-panelled, cork walls of the dimly-lit gig room at The Workers Club. It’s five minutes past eight and the first supporting act of I Know Leopard are echoing calm, acoustic melodies to a small, scattered crowd. Little Dreamer, a four-piece band with…

gig review: sleepy dreamers, the grace darling hotel, melbourne

Aisling Grey
2 comments

Heading on over to the Grace Darling Hotel in Collingwood on a Friday night to see Sleepy Dreamers, I was beyond excited. I love live music, small venues and local bands. Sleepy Dreamers has emerged from the suburbs of Melbourne, professional and put together, seeming like a band much older than it is. Owing to…

live music review: chet faker, the toff in town, 21 apr 2012

Lamisse Hamouda

Running up the stairs, I grab my stamp and I stumble into a room populated by about thirty or so folks soaking in sounds of I’lls’. This four-piece band supported Chet Faker for all three of his Melbourne shows and will be playing at Castle Music Festival at the end of June. Simon Lam’s hazy…

live music review: auxilla, the metro, 21 apr 2012

Matt Mercieca
No comments

It was quite the weekend for Adelaide music fans, with a international record day sale, Lou Barlow playing Fowlers and many other bands playing in the city; it was the kind of weekend where you would struggle to stereotype Adelaide as a sleepy little town. At the normally quiet little Metropolitan Hotel, punters were treated…

Before you lose your mind over yet another vampire dedicated commodity, I’m here to ensure that The Fearless Vampire Killers are something that anyone can fall in love with – sorry girls, there’s no Robert Pattinson in this one, but there is still a whole lot to gawk over. So I bring you the truly…

live music review: alison avron, the jade monkey, 8 march 2012

Britt Chatburn
No comments

Not many people would be on the look-out for live music hidden down an alleyway off Adelaide’s main retail drag on a Thursday night. Luckily, those who fancy a bit of a weekday treat (and are able to put their late night shopping on hold) can head to the Jade Monkey and catch local as…

Big Day Out, Adelaide, 2012

Serrin Prior
No comments

This year was the Big Day Out’s 20th birthday. Of course, it is the 21st birthday that we all celebrate as the big one (though one can only wonder why this is the case in Australia), which may be the reason that the festival was at, ahem, less than full capacity for its Adelaide show….

live music review: the vasco era, adelaide unibar, 26 nov 11

Matt Mercieca
No comments

The city of churches was shaken to its very core and for a change, it wasn’t because of an untimely earthquake. The Vasco Era and Papa vs Pretty, who have recently been touring the country and causing mayhem on stages around Australia, treated Adelaide to a truly captivating show on Saturday night. In recent times,…

live music review: belle and sebastian, the forum, march 12

Rebecca Howden
No comments

I’ve always kind of had this idea in my head that going to a Belle and Sebastian show would be a bit like stepping through the looking glass. A special, dream-like world where lonely souls come together in their best vintage dresses and kooky hats, embracing strangers like long lost twins, singing along and dancing…

live music escapades without the budget hangover

Angelique Lu
No comments

With the festive season behind us, Christmas spent eating your own weight in pudding, and New Year’s celebrations that you can’t seem to remember, it can be difficult to fathom any kind of social life associated with all things live music, particularly with the drain on finances that it seems to bring. Never fear. With…

live music review: thirsty merc

Shannon Andreucci
One comment

If this were an album review, I’d be giving Thirsty Merc’s latest musical offspring “Mousetrap Heart” a crucifying evaluation. I’d simply label it a non-ground breaking, disappointingly compliant and regretfully catchy follow-up to their second studio album and close the books right there. But being a live gig review, Rai Thistlethwayte and Co’s surprisingly engaging…
