Live Review : Extreme & Mr. Big at Enmore Theatre, Sydney – 3 June 2018

Review and Photos: Peter Coates – www.facebook.com/InsideEdgePhotography

Enmore the hip Sydney suburb was rammed on Sunday night – parking was a nightmare, the Duke was overflowing, and the queue to get in to the Enmore Theatre was round the block. All because a couple of 1990’s US rock bands had teamed up for a co-headlining tour, and Zaccaria Concerts & Touring had done a bang-up job of promoting and selling the shows. The Enmore was fully standing downstairs, and was packed early, with Mr Big taking to the stage around 7.45pm, and treating us to 85 minutes of flawless classic rock.

It was a cold, wet night in Newcastle when Las Vegas band Escape the Fate rolled into town. But behind the storied walls of Newcastle's iconic Cambridge Hotel you'd have been forgiven for thinking it was a balmy summer evening – such were the conditions created by the teeming mass of bodies in attendance to watch the American rock band smash through its lauded 2008 album 'This War is Ours' in its entirety.

Live Review : Apia Good Times at Ulumbarra Theatre, Bendigo – 26 May 2018

Review by Natasha Wyborn

Some may have started as far back as the 60’s but the fab 5 that hit the stage at Bendigo on Saturday night could show todays youth a thing or two. On parade were ARIA Hall of Famers, international hit makers, a former TV Week Queen of Pop and countless number one hits. APIA truly brings songs of a lifetime to the modern era. Each artist Brian Cadd, Marcia Hines, Russell Morris, Leo Sayer and John Paul Young a star in their own right. Another interesting point all artists came up on Australian stages learning their craft in front of an increasing live audience. Countdown was paramount to all artists career, throughout the concert Molly Meldrum was referred to fondly.

JET at NEX, Newcastle – 29 May 2018
Photographer: Peter Coates

15 years in the making, and Aussie rockers JET are back in the swing of it, using the 15th Anniversary of their debut album GET BORN as an excuse to get out and re-introduce themselves to the kids who bought the record back in 2003, and who are now in their early thirties and perhaps better able to appreciate quality songs and great live performance than they were!

Dear Willow shares soulful new single and video for ‘HOLD’

Dear Willow is the creative voice of Sunshine Coast based artist Em-J Dau. Since 2012 Dear Willow has transformed from poet to a solo acoustic act and embraced her sound through a full band. A testament to its creator’s talent, Dear Willow is both Em-J’s nom de plume and her persona artistica: a vessel that can change shape and direction, allowing her to truly explore her creativity.

New single HOLD is a cautionary lament documenting the artist’s experiences of frustration in feeling simultaneously stuck, and rushed forward, with the gentle undertones of a friend breaking bad news. This latest release has a tapestry of intricate layers whilst the focus still remains on Dear Willow’s original foundations. The result is soulful, melodically organic and unapologetically real.
