Review by Kristie Nicolas
There are few bands that could get away with pulling apart their own songs and reinterpreting them live on stage. There are even fewer bands that could make that sound good. The legendary hip hop crew The Roots are one of them. This past Friday, 27th December, at the Hordern Pavillion in Sydney, The Roots took to the stage to show all hip hop heads not only how to successfully do just that but how to go beyond any boundaries put on them by their genre. But did fans really expect anything less from one of hip hop’s most notable groups and the house band of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon? No.

|After seven years of providing a distinctly domestic soundtrack to June long weekend, Come Together keeps its focus on showcasing the best of homegrown talent with an exciting new twist for its eighth incarnation. Come Together returns in 2011, for one day only on Saturday June 11th.
We’ve revamped, refreshed, recharged, renovated and are ready to roll out the musical movers and shakers with an all Australian hip hop line-up set to have the Big Top jumping.
Lining up front and center & fresh from nailing down the highest ranked hip hop single at number 12 on the Triple J Hottest 100, is hip-hop artist on the rise Drapht. Hailing from Perth, Drapht emerged onto the scene alongside fellow WA heavy hitters Downsyde and Fdel and has since established himself as an MC on the up having polished his on-stage antics alongside the likes of the Hilltop Hoods, Dilated Peoples and Koolism amongst others.

– Less Arty More Party
|Explosive Brisbane five-piece The Belligerents are set to take their dance frenzied, disco-pop live show on the road for a national tour in March and April to celebrate the release of their much anticipated debut EP Less Arty More Party.
In 2010, the band infused the hearts and dancing shoes of audiences; supporting acts such as Metronomy (UK), Neon Indian (USA), Breakbot (France), Yacht Club DJs, The Paper Scissors and DZ. They blew the minds of festival revellers holding their own alongside the likes of Little Red, Shout Out Louds (Sweden), Regurgitator, Miami Horror, The Jezabels, Dappled Cities, Urthboy, Parades and the John Steel Singers.
The boys have played countless mind-blowing sets on renowned stages and at house parties – occasionally invoking partial nudity. Also in the midst of this wild year, the band got creatively intimate with Brisbane producer Timeshare at Temple Street studio and recorded a deeply charismatic four track EP. Channelling inspiration from Foals, The Rapture and Talking Heads, The Belligerents have crafted an entrancing musical work of art suitable for any party.

Booking acts for Pyramid began early this year with artists from all over the globe showing their support for the festival, ensuring that this year Pyramid will undoubtedly be hosting its best line up to date with the first round of acts revealed on August 26.
