Live Review: Gabriella Cohen + Lalic +Chelsea Bleach – Curtain Bandroom, Melbourne (24.09.2016)

I was sitting at the charming rickety-looking bar in The Curtin waiting for my +1 for the night’s Gabriella Cohen performance, when he informed me the only shoes he owned en route from India were a pair of sandals. Thankfully, after a worried enquiry regarding appropriate footwear to the bar staff, I was informed they … Continue reading

Live Review: Rat & Co + Oisima – Howler, Melbourne (16.09.2016)

Brunswick’s Howler was the perfect setting for Rat & Co’s A.I. tour last Friday. Giant cubes descended from the ceiling and a faint artistic air meandered across the assorted leafage and craft beer. The Electronic Pop five-piece, Tetrahedra, opened. From the veiled position I held by the wall, I enjoyed observing the seemingly uncontrollable movements … Continue reading

The opening act, GRRL PAL, mirrored all the visual appeal of 1989’s ‘Ring … Continue reading

Live Review: Hoodlem + Nico Ghost – Howler, Melbourne (16.04.16)

Last Saturday, Hoodlem and Nico Ghost co-headlined at Brunswick’s multifaceted art hub Howler. As a novice fan of the R&B / electronic genres, I ventured into the venue, ignorantly, expecting it not to be my cup of tea. First on the all-Australian bill was neo-soul artist Alice Ivy who radiated on stage with nostalgic electronic … Continue reading

The 10th concert for this year’s ‘Zoo Twilights’ series got underway at dusk on Friday February 26th at The Royal Melbourne Zoo with musical guests Last Dinosaurs and San Cisco. The grassy area near the entrance was transformed into a quaint patchwork of picnics surrounding a stage, and was lined with stalls and fairground lights. … Continue reading
