Trial Kennedy ‘Living Undesigned’ National Tour – May/June 2011 – Tour News

On May 13, Trial Kennedy releases its long awaited second album, Living Undesigned. To celebrate, the band is taking their show on the road for a string of album tour dates around the country in May.

On paper, you’d have to wonder how Trial Kennedy is even still a band.

Two years ago, the Melbourne rock outfit were perched at the edge of something big. After two killer EPs (2004’s Present for a Day and 2005’s Picture Frame), their Nick DiDia-produced debut album, New Manic Art, was garnering the sort of critical acclaim every band aspires to. Songs such as ‘Neighbours’ and ‘Colour Day Tours’ became instant Triple J anthems. The band toured hard, earning a burgeoning Australian fan base to go with their stellar live rep, and coveted support spots with the likes of Fall Out Boy and Birds Of Tokyo. Their star was rising.

And then… well, then a whole lot of bad mojo went down. The band’s original bass player left, there was illness, the daily struggle of balancing day jobs and personal relationships with artistic careers, and the band parted ways with their management and label.

Splendour in the Grass 2011 – ‘Woodfordia’, QLD [Festival News]

PLENDOUR IN THE GRASS – the annual, ephemeral city of sounds that exists solely for sweet music and good times will transform Woodfordia, near Woodford, south east Queensland from Friday 29 to Sunday 31 July. The Woodfordia campgrounds will open from 7am Wednesday 27 July until 5pm Monday 1 August. Please note the entire festival site including the three main stages – Amphitheatre, Mix Up Stage and GW McLennan Tent – will operate on Friday, Saturday and Sunday only. For those camping onsite, the event area will open from 9am Thursday 28 July with a bunch of spaces and entertainment in full swing to keep you busy right across the weekend.

Due to the very heavy traffic congestion when arriving and departing SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS 2010 we have spent the past year working on initiatives that will simultaneously ease traffic on local roads and within Woodfordia, whilst also creating a greener event. Borrowing from other international music festivals that have experienced similar issues, and in an effort to radically reduce traffic congestion, we will be implementing a car pass system which will encourage carpooling. More info on this plan and all of SPLENDOURs environmental initiatives will be supplied in the coming weeks.

Sampology’s Super Visual Monster Mash – April/May 2011 [Tour News]

  Sampology mixes YouTube clips, exerts from films, TV shows and vintage VHS finds, turning your ordinary club night into a crazy AVDJ mashup.

The technical aspect to Sampology’s Super Visual AVDJ shows is pretty darned impressive. He’s madly manipulating video via two turntables and a mixer and triggering animations from his drum machine, all projected live onto a big-ass widescreen. But it’s Sampology’s cheeky sense of humour, sprinkled across the exerts from film and TV shows, filmclips, YouTube clips and vintage VHS finds that takes your ordinary club night and turns it into a stupidly exciting and crazy fun visual mashup.

Its like dancing your butt off at your favourite movie of all time, and laughing the whole way through.

After its launch into Australia last year, Creamfields Australia is back bigger and better for Easter 2011. The Totem Onelove crew (also behind the Stereosonic festival) are committed to bringing you some of the world’s best acts, utilizing some of the best venues in Australia, amazing production and value for money in ticket pricing.

Totem Onelove (Hardware Corp and Onelove Music Group), are pleased to announce the main headliner for Creamfields 2011: Deadmau5 with the full live show (with LED Mau5 head and new production), designed by the people who brought the world Daft Punks’ legendary live show!! Deadmau5 is one of the biggest acts in the world with countless productions, and has been stunning audiences worldwide with this live light & videoshow. This is the first time he has brought his show, LED Mau5head and concert level production to Australia.

Another year and another smash hit for Frenchman Martin Solveig, all over the radio and TV with ‘Hello’ Martin will be shooting an exclusive video at Creamfields Australia. Skrillex is one of the hottest producers at the moment, owning 7 out of 10 spots on the Beatport chart in November 2010. Chuckie is one of the most in demand acts in the world with his Dutch House weapons. Simon Patterson one of the new school guys of trance has jumped up in the DJ Mag rankings and blown away crowds at major festivals including Trance Energy around the world. Gabriel and Dresden are one of the most revered acts in the Trance/Progressive world and haven’t toured for many years. Wynter Gordonhas had a massive few months, ‘Dirty Talk’ topping the Aria Charts and will be performing live at Creamfields. Hi Tek Soul is the new project for Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May, the original Detroit Legends together for 3 hours at each show. After sellout club shows across Australia, DJs, remixers and producers the Bingo Playersreturn for Creamfields after a busy end to 2010 and start of 2011. Top 3 Psy Trance act Skazi return to Australia with a new album due in March: ‘Time to feed the animals.’ French Wunderkid Surkin is back in Australia with a new live show. Electronic Duo Dada Life are from Sweden. Check out their latest album ‘Do the Dada.’ Umek is one of the techno massives favourite acts, get set for Umek at all shows. Nadastrom The collective brainchild of Washington, D.C. natives Dave Nada and Matt Nordstrom. Emerging duo experiencing significant buzz. i.e. The debut release from Nadastrom sold out on vinyl and became a digital store annual bestseller. One of the buzz acts of 2010 was Round Table Knights, a huge year on dancefloors, charts and touring. At a time when techno is marketed in the same way as a sci-fi blockbuster, it’s possible for every aspiring DJ to have the same playlist as their idol with just a few mouse clicks, the mysterious Sandwell District label is pushing in the opposite direction, putting some distance between the artist and the audience. London based Tim Green is one of those producers who doesn’t turn in a lot of filler tracks. His unique style and flair shine for all to see when the 25 year old puts his music out there. After a decade in the business Bart Claessen knows a thing or two about trance. Over the last eight years he’s been responsible for huge club hits, international chart smashes and sub-genre defining releases. If there is one thing you can’t blame Mumbai Science for it’s a lack of imagination. At only 24, the duo already have a decade worth of creative experimenting behind them.

The countdown is on Australia! Creamfields will return with larger stages and epic production, with the first Cream event stadium show, ‘Planet Cream’, in Adelaide. Brisbane will see a new venue this year, the RNA Showgrounds as we move to a larger capacity with a new site configuration for Melbourne.

PROPAGANDHI Return To Tour Australia – May 2011! [Tour News & Tickets]

PROPAGANDHI AUSTRALIAN TOUR, MAY 2011

Secret internal cables released early Monday morning by controversial whistle-blower website Wikileaks, have provoked an unprecedented 694-day debate in Australian Parliament.

The cables suggest, contrary to public pronouncements from the Gillard government, that the unbelievably good looking Canadian hard rock band Propagandhi have no time-line for withdrawal from their extremely unpopular mission in Australia.

Propagandhi have warned against handing over responsibility for security in Australia to any of the completely self-serving total assholes that tend to get involved in federal politics in the first place, insisting the transition must be tailored to the conditions on the ground.
