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

In a supreme tease to office workers across the CBD, Sunset Sounds opened its gates for a second year to accept the swarm of humanity buzzing around the Botanic Gardens mid-afternoon…

Live Review: Sunset Sounds Day 2, January 7 2010

Yeah Yeah Yeahs @ Sunset Sounds

  With a dominant lineup from start to finish, the Riverstage was heavily populated from early on the second day of Sunset Sounds. Blessed with pleasingly mild weather again, the general affability of the crowd should be commended – as should the prevalence of shirts on male patrons (why is that so hard at other festivals?).

Having recently released what can only be described as a puzzling third album, Editors brought the air-strike riffs and towering vocals of their first two albums, interspersed with tracks from their strange Kulture Klub meets Ian Curtis new album to the Riverstage. Suffice to say their earlier material like ‘Munich’ and ‘Bullets’ moved the crowd and sounded fantastic through the big sound system. The less said about the few new tracks they brought the better.

Photos and Review: Elize Strydom

Every year the population of the sleepy seaside town of Lorne, Victoria swells. Music lovers from all over Australia pack their bags and load their cars and make the pilgrimage to the Falls Music and Arts Festival.

Falls Music and Arts Festival
Lorne is situated on the Great Ocean Road and while it is tempting for me to keep on traveling that road, I know that rolling green hills covered in lush green grass and stages set for some the world’s best acts await, just 10 kilometres inland.

Traffic crawls along the winding dusty road, but I’m sustained by the knowledge of what is about to be unveiled, around the next corner.

I put up my tent and it disappears amongst a sea of temporary canvas homes. What hope do I have of finding it late tonight? Ah well, it’s all part of the adventure!

Live Review | Lamb Of God @ Riverstage Brisbane 11 December 2009 w/ Devildriver, Shadows Fall and High on Fire

Author: Lana Harris
Lamb Of GodThe afternoon brought with it dark clouds that took away the light but not the heat, and those of us wrapped in black shuffled through the cyclone wire fence that surrounds Riverstage dripping with something a bit more corporeal than anticipation.

High on Fire began as soon as the gates opened, which meant they finished while I was still trying to fuel up on full strength beer before entering Riverstage’s mid-strength terrain. High on Fire are rumoured to have a huge sound, structurally destructive to smaller venues, and I had been keen to watch that sound explode in the open air of Riverstage. But with four bands scheduled, and only four hours to fit them in before Riverstage’s 10pm curfew, I should have known better.

Shadows Fall were second up, and put on a short, powerful set which showcased the blistering guitar solos the band are known for.
