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.
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.
Rising With The Sun, the sixth album from The Cat Empire, strikes a pleasing balance: there’s enough that’s familiar to satisfy dedicated fans, while also managing to expand sonic boundaries by experimenting with new sounds.
The pairing of Canadian headline act, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, with Japan’s Vampilla for the Adelaide Festival performance at Thebarton Theatre on Sunday night made for some interesting comparisons.
