Lizotte’s Birthday Bash – Newcastle – Saturday 2nd June 2019

10 years ago the bones of a beautiful old art deco theatre stood dormant in Morehead Street, Lambton. For decades prior, generations of people had passed through it’s doors. The spaces has had many incarnations, such as a picture theatre, a restaurant and even a roller rink. Once filled with laughter and sound but in 2009 it stood silent.

90 mins down the freeway was a legendary music venue called Lizotte’s. The kind of place that as a music fan, even if you hadn’t been there, you had heard about. The stories of moments that you wished you had been there when huge named artist played an intimate show to just over 100 people. Owned by Brian and Jo Lizotte’s and frequented by the who’s who of the music industry including brother Diesel.

Live Review : 36 CrazyFists + Superheist + From Crisis to Collapse + BLKLST + Take My Soul @ The Cambridge Hotel, Newcastle – 7 April 2019

Words and Pics: www.hoskingindustries.com.au

Another Sunday gig at the Cambridge Hotel and another early start. Not a huge issue in and of itself, when the venue fails to list the correct start time on its own website until late into the afternoon of the show and you aren’t surprised when the bands on show tonight are playing to far fewer people than they would normally.

Tour News : KARNIVOOL ANNOUNCE THE PRAXIS TOUR 2019

Photo credit: Kane Hibberd

Karnivool, Fidelity Corporation & Billions Australia are very happy to announce The Praxis Tour 2019.

Praxis definition: the process of using a theory or something that you have learned in a practical way.
Karnivool was a sleeping giant in 2018, but the beast stirred in January of this year with a short run of dates in WA and SA leading into a headlining slot at the Unify Gathering festival in regional VIC. This jaunt was so well received (all shows sold out) and more importantly so much damn fun for the band that it only seems fair that they should visit the rest of Australia and remind their fans how unique the atmosphere is in the temple of Vool – the band were a little overwhelmed by how many messages they got from other cities in Australia asking for a visit – it had been awhile!
