Live Review : Jebediah + Adalita at The Corner Hotel, Richmond – June 18, 2015

Review by Ben Connolly
Jebediah at The Corner Hotel, Richmond - June 17, 2015
In a different universe, a Jebediah of 20 years ago probably would have been a short­ term affair. It’s gangly awkward pop­ punk probably would have survived the ubiquitous relocation from its original Western Australian outpost to the big smoke of the East, but it would have been no doubt an indie­fied square peg in a mainstream round hole.

Tedeschi Trucks Band at Palms Casino Resort, Las Vegas - June 9,
When you think of Las Vegas thoughts of gambling and the chance of winning *or loosing* it all in the Sin City come to mind. Whilst for some this maybe a reality for others they search for more in this town and you don’t have to look far to discover the plethora of music that visits the city on a daily basis. On Tuesday night the Tedeschi Trucks Band rolled into town for one night as part of their “Wheels Of Soul” tour. Playing to a sellout crowd at “The Pearl” the show carried plently of grind in relation to the power of the voice and musicians. Opening act Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings plus Doyle Bramhall II rocked the house proving just what the crowd needed to kick off the evening. Sharon Jones brought her high powered voice combined with a healthy dose of attitude to the house. Jones backed by a 10 piece band communicated candidly with the audience even discussing her personal battles with cancer. Nothing was going to stop her and the voice alone powered throughout the house.
