Live Review: True Live + The Kidney Thieves @ The Zoo, Brisbane 4 July 2009

True Live @ The Zoo , Brisbane 4 July 2009
Supported by: The Kidney Thieves.
Author: Jose Eduardo Cruz

True Live   Saturday was a very cold and windy night in Brisbane, which would keep many a punter at home. Being Brisbane anything short of perfect weather keeps most concert goers away from live venues. Keeping this in mind, the attendance level was a testament to the calibre of performance we were about to witness.

Supporting act, The Kidney Thieves are definitely not shy or suffer from stage fright. These guys have been around for a while now and have developed a nice following in their home town. Charismatic or maybe a bit insane is how you would

describe their front man, Jack Muzak. You can’t call these guys a warm up band; they are more like a set fire to the stage band and hope the next band can still use it. Their sound takes me back to a Faith No More era, where sounds and styles blended. Sex Panther an 8 minute epic, riddled with so many time changes that you forget which song it is, illustrated this bands wild nature. The Kidney Thieves equal fun.

  Saturday 11th July and Sunday 12th July mark the 20th Anniversary of the Abbey Medieval Festival.

The Abbey Medieval Festival offers an experience unlike any other. The colour, pageantry and atmosphere and the authenticity of performers will transport visitors back in time in this unique week of festival activities. Visitors will thrill to the excitement and skill of the Joust, the roar of knights in battle and be entertained by the beautiful Middle-eastern dancers, drama, music and the markets. They may also indulge their medieval taste buds and feast on tantalizing food at the Medieval Banquet or dance their way into the starry night at the Masque Ball.

This year the Jousting Spectacular will be more thrilling and competitive than ever before! The Joust is one of the festivals most popular spectacles. It is now ticketed to guarantee seating or standing space to allow as many people as possible to clearly see the event. There will be three tilts each day to maximise the opportunity for visitors to enjoy this dangerous and yet exciting event.

Renée Geyer – Renéessance – June, July 2009 Tour

Renée Geyer – Renéessance
Liberation Blue Acoustic Series

“I’ve avoided doing this album for a long time for the simple reason that I’ve already done these songs. I finally said yes ’cause we agreed to do it live at my keyboard player’s house: just set up like an acoustic gig and play. People tend to like the intimacy of that. It has a certain energy and I think it works.”

Intimate doesn’t mean gentle, as the opening salvo of Renéessance makes bracingly clear. Untreated and unaccompanied, Renée Geyer’s full-throttle entry into the reggae classic, Dedicated To The One I Love, serves notice of an album easy on amps but as highly charged as her most soulful work.
