|Its surf music Jim, but not as we know it… Deep Sea Arcade are pleased to announce theyll be hitting both the road and the beach this summer in a co-headline tour with fellow surficianados Surf City from New Zealand. The two bands will duel it up along the east coast throughout February 2011 and with both bands drawing inspiration from classic surf music its only fitting that the majority of the shows will take place by the beach.|

This was a farewell gig of sorts for Cloud Control as the Blue Mountains-via-Sydney band are temporarily relocating to the UK ahead of the overseas release of their debut album. Starting off with more of a fizzle than a bang, 7:00pm had been listed as the start time yet the punters (mainly young teenage girls in florals and itsy bitsy shorts vying for the “ indie cred” tag) were left whiling away the time listening to Blondie’ s greatest hits. It wasn’t all bad though; because we were treated to watching some rather animated bartenders dancing along to Ms Harry and Co.

On behalf of The Panics and Cloud Control, we regretfully announce that both bands will no longer be appearing at Stonefest 2010.
The Panics’ recording schedule has changed meaning they are now required back in the studio in the US during the end of October.
Cloud Control were very much looking forward to their first Stonefest appearance in October but unfortunately, following their recent signing to UK label Infectious Records, the band are now to embark on a European tour during this period.
In their places will be the incomparable Xavier Rudd and exciting newcomers Deep Sea Arcade.

|In 2010 Ben Sherman return to present their annual live music love-in; the Ben Sherman Big British Sound. Following the huge success of the Big British Sound’s debut in Sydney last year, Ben Sherman have decided to take the show on the road, and will host the Big British Sound in Melbourne, as well as Sydney, for the first time this year.
What is the Ben Sherman Big British Sound exactly? Each year Ben Sherman selects a range of the best emerging artists in Australian independent music to come together and celebrate Ben Sherman’s British music heritage. Each band throws one or two covers into their set from British artists they are influenced by, or who they simply dig.

The Zoo is filled with fresh faced lasses in floral dresses and boys with floppy hair and dance pants. As soon as the six members of Brisbane’s Ball Park Music hit the stage to room is on its feet and inching closer to the stage. It’s like were being sucked forward by the gloriously poppy sounds and irresistibly jangly guitars. And the trombone. How can anyone resist a trombone? This collective of shiny, happy young’uns have spent much of the year gigging around the city and attracting a little pack of supporters. They released an 8 track debut “Rolling on the floor, Laughing ourselves to sleep” early this year and some of the tracks have come to the attention of triple j heavyweights.
