Live Review: Devin Townsend @ The Tivoli, Brisbane 12 March 2010

Review by: Hannah Collins
Devin TownsendWhat do you say about a person that seemingly has everything, can do anything, and pleases mostly everyone with his never-ending display of musical prowess? >Devin Townsend is such a man. At almost 40 years of age, his list of achievements both in and outside of the music industry, have never ceased to amaze us. His list of albums and sprouting projects is as long and lustrous as his hair once was, with their both differentiating and intriguing sounds as diverse as Devin’s facial expressions. He was once dubbed the “boy genius” by Steve Vai at only 19 years of age and 20 odd years later, he’s definitely lived up to the hype that precedes him.

In his early days, Devin debuted his original works as the founder, songwriter, guitarist and vocalist for hard hitting, extreme metal act “Strapping young lad” (whose debut album “City” was declared to be; “possibly one of the best metal albums of all time”).

After releasing their debut self-titled album via Anthem/Shock Records in June this year, former Distillers’ front woman Brody Dalle is thrilled to be returning to her native Australia with her new band Spinnerette. Spinnerette’s self-titled album features thirteen new songs written by Brody Dalle and produced by Alain Johannes (Them Crooked Vultures, Arctic Monkeys) and is the first Brody Dalle helmed full-length release since The Distillers’ 2003 ‘Coral Fang’ album.

WHO IS THIS? Is that the love child of Rob Younger from Radio Birdman?
NAH! It’s a Melbourne 5-piece Shaman Son, who are a fresh blast of liquid sunshine into the main vein of the Australian music industry. An acid test for a new generation of kids who want to turn on, tune in and rock out. Though they wear their combined influences on their sleeves Shaman Son aren’t content to merely dwell in the past, instead they reference, distil and reinterpret, settling on a sound that is positively mind expanding.

Playing times: Shaman Son 9pm * Mini Mansions 10pm * Spinnerette 11pm – 12am

  For the many festival’s we’ve attentively followed in the last year or so, I hope I’m not going to cop to much backlash for saying that Soundwave is now, pretty much, the festival to be at, particularly if you indulge in music of the ah, heavier nature. They’ve marked their territory well, and will be hard to compete with in coming years after continually displaying such high levels of organization and forward planning, with larger than life line ups to match, last year

featuring headliners Nine in Nails, and Alice in Chains, this year the newly reunited outfits Jane’s Addiction and of course, Faith No More.

Ticket sales at the door had prices marked up by over 50 dollars from the original price, but it didn’t see people back away from the queue. With a line up like today’s, I wouldn’t have been backing away from those prices either, had I’d have been stupid enough, not to buy a ticket during one of the previous releases.

Walking the streets of Brisbane’s fortitude valley on the morning of the event is galvanizing. The streets are flooded with waves of charismatic show goers of all age’s shapes and sizes. The crowd’s equal to what you may see before the opening day of the Ekka; Brisbane’s annual Royal show.

The Mars Volta

The Tivoli is filling with fans and the ambient strains of lounge jazz. Bodies crowd the railings upstairs first, spectators safe behind the iron and wood. As more people push through the doors the floor packs out, the main crowds are drawn towards the stage, towards the backdrop of snake and other eyes, wings and amorphous canine face shapes, lit by blasts of ketchup red from above. Excited chatter now drowns out the background melodies, until The Mars Volta hit the stage…. READ the FULL SHOW REVIEW HERE
