Gang of Youths are the real deal. In an era of producers and manufactured music it’s great to see a band who clearly enjoy making music together and who do it so damn well.
This was a very special gig and one of the most enjoyable shows I’ve experienced in a while.
Living up to their military style name, 2016 is beginning to looking like an all out assault for Adelaide indie-punk outfit, Grenadiers, one of the hardest working acts around town.
Dallas Green may use City and Colour to showcase his knack for constructing a gentle, affecting ballad, but his live show draws a large and very enthusiastic audience. The Monday night show at Thebarton Theatre was packed with exuberant fans ready to end the Easter weekend on a high.
As a band, Cold War Kids don’t verbally engage much during a show, but they do have a Nick Cave-like energy as they prowl the stage, connecting with each other and the audience through demeanour and a commitment to performance.
While Groovin the Moo is a national touring event, there will be a strong local flavour to festivities when it arrives in Oakbank on 25th April, making for a truly unique festival.
Despite slightly lower crowd numbers on the WOMAD Monday, the last day of the festival boasted some of the best performances.
Sunday at WOMAD was a hot day that gave way to a nicely chilled night.
Another magical day at WOMADelaide and we are still only half way through the festival!
WOMADelaide 2016 kicked off in grand style with one of the most jam-packed Friday night line-ups in memory.
