Flume @ Perth Arena 25/11/2016 (Live Review)

Flume @ Perth Arena 25/11/2016 (Live Review)

Sydney golden boy Harley Streten has had a busy week. It’s no secret that he cleaned up at the ARIA Awards on Wednesday night. Five wins including Best Male Artist is bound to turn heads, and conveniently so in time for Flume’s world tour commencing in Perth this weekend. With both Brisbane and Melbourne shows already sold out, the reception welcoming Flume back to the west coast was unsurprisingly huge. Those […]

You Am I + Special Guests @ Kings Park Botanical Gardens 20/11/16 (Live Review)

You Am I + Special Guests @ Kings Park Botanical Gardens 20/11/16 (Live Review)

It was the first A Day On The Green for the season and it was already packed with 30-somethings waiting to relive 1997 for what would be one of the heaviest (and best) line-ups that Kings Park has seen for quite a while (if not ever). It was perfect drinking weather and people had their picnics and wine spread out in front of them. . […]

De La Soul @ The Greenwood Hotel 20/11/16 (Live Review)

De La Soul @ The Greenwood Hotel 20/11/16 (Live Review)

I don’t know that much about events management, but I imagine that having highly respected hip hop pioneers go on stage three hours late and say that it’s all your fault is probably not excellent for business. Having them fall silent two and a half tracks later because the venue has a midnight music curfew is also not great strategy. It’s a lesson in how […]

Birds Of Tokyo, Strangers, Pat Chow – Metropolis Perth 17/11/16 (Live Review)

Birds Of Tokyo, Strangers, Pat Chow – Metropolis Perth 17/11/16 (Live Review)

“Much love, much love” It was a sentiment offered up by vocalist Ian Kenny on more than one occasion as he guided Birds Of Tokyo through the opening night of their seven date tour to celebrate the arrival of their latest album Brace – an album already being lauded by fan and critic alike as being the Perth quintet’s strongest, darkest and most thematically focused effort to […]

Tiny Little Houses @ The Rosemount Hotel, Perth, 12/11/16 (Live Review)

Tiny Little Houses @ The Rosemount Hotel, Perth, 12/11/16 (Live Review)

Playing their first headline show in Perth, Tiny Little Houses stopped by The Rosemount Hotel on Saturday night as part of their Snow Globes EP tour to show just how big their sound really was.  Bringing along Sophie Hopes (frontwoman of Tired Lion) and fellow locals Verge Collection, it was a lineup that started heavy on the heartstrings before turning the volume right up. . . With enough […]

Delta Goodrem @ Brisbane Convention & Entertainment Centre, 11/11/16 (Live Review)

Delta Goodrem @ Brisbane Convention & Entertainment Centre, 11/11/16 (Live Review)

When a 15 year old Delta Goodrem, released her debut single Innocent Eyes, back in 2003, I wonder if it was predictable, that 15 years later, she would not only be still performing to sell out crowds, but that she would have 5 albums, 4 of them peaking at Number 1 on the Charts in Australia, with the fifth peaking at a not too shabby […]

Dionne Warwick @ Perth Concert Hall, 10/11/16 (Live Review)

Dionne Warwick @ Perth Concert Hall, 10/11/16 (Live Review)

A few months ago Henry Rollins stood on stage and for a rare moment his gunfire delivery eased off as he talked with reverence of his ‘surrogate mom’ Dionne Warwick. Listening to her records growing up, she was a musical guardian to him and judging by the affectionate audience at Perth Concert Hall, to so many more. . . Forget about your pop queens, as Dionne […]

Violent Soho @ Redhill Auditorium, Perth – 5/11/16 (Live Review)

In a weekend where WA was quite literally exploding with the amount of Australian music filling its streets, it was a schedule that had everyone divided.  Though given the recounts it seems everywhere had something special to offer, none could be more surreal than the mammoth lineup awaiting at Redhill Auditorium on Saturday night as Violent Soho brought a veritable grunge rock festival to our […]

Vengaboys + Special Guests @ Wrest Point Casino, Tasmania 03/11/16 (Live Review)

It’s a Thursday night and the room is filling up with men and women of varying ages; some have even dressed up in their best nineties and noughties fashion in preparation for Eurodance group the Vengaboys to take the stage. .   . DJ Levins is keeping the crowd entertained, spinning an assortment of 90s and 00s greatest hits and interacting with the already loud […]
