    Australian audiences have had a roller coaster of a week. A stage crashing fan in Sydney was shown who’s boss last week, copping a beating from Earl Sweatshirt and Trash Talk’s Garrett when he rushed the boys mid-song. We were given a better rap after our efforts at Splendour in the Grass, with authorities and

    Mark Ronson’s Splendour in the Grass sideshow was a who’s who of this year’s hottest Australian acts. Opening the night was Jones Jnr, who only this month released their first EP Step on Sleep, bringing a refreshingly unique sound. Their part hip-hop, part soul, part gospel groove might come across as a bar set too

    Death Cab For Cutie – Melbourne, 170 Russell 26/07/15

    There’s something about the music of Death Cab for Cutie that makes it a perfect match for a bitterly cold winter evening. It’s as if the songs somehow project the picturesque but rainswept climate of their Seattle origin. It seemed fitting that as Death Cab took the stage at a sold-out 170 Russell in on

    The Wombats, Circa Waves – Sydney, Hordern Pavilion 27/7/15

    You know it’s the Monday after Splendour when there’s a guy on someone’s shoulders still waving a gumboot around in the air – we get it, no one’s quite ready to let the weekend go. Thankfully, The Wombats were more than happy to keep the party alive for a few short hours more. “Sydney, my

    “This is just so nuts!” Olly Alexander is perhaps the most adorable rock star in the world. Not only has the kid got a serious set of pipes. He’s got the moves. Like really got the moves. I mean, when layers of clothing start coming off after the first song, it’s always a good sign.

    Blur, Jamie T – Qantas Credit Union Arena, Sydney 25/07/15

    It’s generally anyone’s guess as to what exactly is going through a performer’s mind before they arrive on stage. When it comes to Jamie T, however, one envisions him getting slapped in the face — hard — and told that his songs are rubbish. It’s only this bizarre hypothetical that would come even remotely close

    Azealia Banks – Sydney, Metro Theatre 24/07/15

    Holy moly, Azealia Banks. So. Much. Sass. Like, I can’t even. Chaos doesn’t begin to describe what happened at the Metro Theatre last night. Let’s just say there was a lot of wind machine action, magic eye light shows and at one point she definitely had a megaphone. Girl sure knows how to put on

    Florence + The Machine – Channel [V] Sydney Secret Show

    For all of us Sydney sad-sacks who were either too slow on nabbing tickets or didn’t feel up to telling our bosses to ‘shove it’ when our leave application for Splendour in The Grass was denied; lady luck shone down on us in a slightly different and more intimate way. Lady luck, or Florence Welch

    Ryan Adams, Jenny Lewis – Enmore Theatre, Sydney 23/07/15

    A Jenny Lewis show is a delight to behold. Whether you were witness to the full-scale experience at the Metro on Wednesday night or simply its condensed version this evening, this is something that reveals itself to be undeniable and subsequently indelible. It’s all bright rainbows, warm harmonies and a career-spanning look at the sounds

    Last night marked the sold-out Melbourne leg of MS MR’s Splendour sideshow tour. Openers Tigertown pierce another chilly evening with a sunny disposition. The likeable five-piece do vocal harmonies in a big way; meshing high-octane, riffy punches with soaring, sugary-pop vocals. Armed with blue strobes and disco balls; leather jackets and sequined leggings, Tigertown manage
