Review: Lauren Sherritt

  It has become a well known fact that New South Wales band Art vs. Science do not put on any ordinary live show. What they create is more than music, what they do is more than mere entertainment, and the allure of their act has had them selling out venues nationwide on their recent ‘The Experiment’ tour. As expected, their concluding performance at The Tivoli in Brisbane was an evening of riotous fun, insane dancing and marvellous spectacle.

Art Vs Science @ The Hi-Fi, Brisbane – 13 August 2010 – Live Review

Review: Lauren Sherritt

[Photo: Stuart Blythe]
  Anticipation levels high, crowds of dance-hungry fans packed Brisbane’s Hi-Fi Bar last Friday night to experience Art vs. Science’s much talked about ‘Magic Fountain’ live show. The night was cold and crisp and the excitement in the air palpable as hundreds of fans headed to the great venue for some high quality Australian entertainment.

They were first greeted by Sydney-siders Jinja Safari, who gave a solid set and got the audience members who had turned up earlier moving with their light electro-tunes. After a short break Tim and Jean appeared and really showed the crowd a thing or two about rocking out. It was hard to tell whether the musicians or the crowd were getting more into it, but it was clear that both were getting a lot out of the music as excitement levels began to rise and the venue began to fill. After performing their more well known tunes “Veronica” and “Come Around”, Tim and Jean gracefully departed the stage, curtains closing, leaving the rest of the night for the headline act Art vs. Science to fill.

ArtArt vs. Science
  Recently anointed Australia’s favourite live act by triple j listeners, ART vs SCIENCE are set to return to their spiritual home at Splendour in the Grass for another show-stopping performance. ART vs SCIENCE replace the Ting-Tings. It wouldn’t be unreasonable to expect mass chanting, electro-pop tales of mysterious fountains and several thousand punters going completely berserk.

Tickets for the recently-announced national Magic Fountain Tour are onsale now and selling rapidly, except in Melbourne where all tickets to their two Hi-Fi shows have completely sold out. Continue reading

ART vs SCIENCE Announce New Single and Tour – Aug/Sep 2010

Sydney’s ART vs SCIENCE have crammed the kind of heady ascent experienced by the luckiest of bands into a timeline that belies their few short years. From regional pubs to national festivals to…trains, the three-piece have built a massive following on the basis of two simple abiding principles:

In doing so they’ve become a live powerhouse; selling out shows, ascending to festival favourites the nation over, staying up all night and sometimes right into the morning and regularly arresting the eyes and ears of all who witness their peculiar brand of madness. Or as one international headliner recently squeezed: “how am I supposed to follow that?” Continue reading

Gold coast Parklands once again played host to the Good Vibrations Festival and all its followers this February. The party had already begun before the gates opened; with crowds of revellers sipping away on their hip flasks and discussing their plans of attack for the day ahead.

With the gates open the party officially kicked off with a cruisy set from the aptly named Cool Calm Collective on the Roots stage. Continuing the relaxed start to the day were Tijuana Cartel on the main stage where a large crowd gathered, in all their costumed glory, to witness a set that evolved from an impressive acoustic flamenco demonstration to a full blown aussie hip-hop act. Such a diverse act couldn’t have been more appropriate for such a diverse and amped crowd; leaving everyone buzzing in anticipation for Bluejuice.

ARIA Charts…

Holding tight at the top of the ARIA Albums Chart for a tenth consecutive week is Susan Boyle’s mammoth debut release “I Dreamed A Dream”, which becomes only the second album since 2000 to remain at number one for ten weeks straight.

Dominating the ARIA Singles Chart for the fifth week straight is Owl City‘s double platinum smash “Fireflies”, which also achieves its sixth week at the top of the ARIA Digital Tracks Chart.
