[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] GROOVIN THE MOO 2017 AT WAYVILLE SHOWGROUNDS

Since the disappearance of Big Day Out, Soundwave and Future Music Festival, South Australia hasn’t been well-known for hosting insane music festivals. Fortunately, the 2014 inception of SA’s Groovin The Moo has been our saving grace. So popular that the festival site had to be moved from Oakbank to the Adelaide Showgrounds; regardless of the...

LIVE MUSIC REVIEW: DEFTONES AT THEBARTON THEATRE

Thebarton Theatre is an impressive venue. It can be classy for theatre shows, but can also appear a little grungier for concerts. And it was Thursday the 10th of November that Deftones hit up Adelaide with Karnivool and Voyager in tow. As with any heavy metal gig, there were band shirts sported on almost every...
