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

Live Review: Boy & Bear + Art Of Sleeping + Montaigne – Festival Hall, Melbourne (23.01.16)

I first watched Boy & Bear at the tiny East Brunswick Club in 2010 on a beautifully adorned seaside-themed stage so I was apprehensive to see them on a much larger, theme-less stage six years on. I wondered if Festival Hall might swallow them up. Unlike most support acts who carry a sense of restriction … Continue reading
