Nestled away just off Rosina Street, Cry Baby, is the latest addition to Adelaide’s nightlife, opening its doors for the first time on Saturday. Named after Janis Joplin’s posthumous 1971 single, the song’s commitment to simple but passionate fundamentals is mirrored in the bar’s presentation and layout. You learn everything you need to know about...
[EP REVIEW] IN DENIAL, FORCE A SMILE BY TIRED EYES

[EP REVIEW] IN DENIAL, FORCE A SMILE BY TIRED EYES

When you listen to this EP, keep in mind that this is Tired Eyes’ debut. They haven’t been putting out music for years and perfecting their style over multiple releases, this is their first. And it’s bloody hard to believe because it is absolute quality. Think instrumentals along the lines of Sydney’s Sleepmakeswaves floating along...

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] EXTREME AND MR. BIG AT THEBARTON THEATRE

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] EXTREME AND MR. BIG AT THEBARTON THEATRE

As the crowd hurried into Thebarton Theatre to escape the cold Adelaide winds, there was a strange feeling of fellowship amongst the mostly Gen Xers. Neither of the bands—nineties hard rock stalwarts Mr. Big or funk-metal masters EXTREME—had played in Adelaide before but the hefty wait had not dampened the enthusiasm of their cult following....

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] EXTREME AND MR. BIG AT FORUM THEATRE

I’d love to open this by detailing precisely how Californian rockers Mr. Big took the stage and kicked off their first ever Melbourne show in a 30-year career. But, when the band played their opening song, I was unfortunately stuck outside in a massive line with many other punters trying to get into this sold-out...

’80s glam rock legends L.A. Guns played their hotly anticipated Sydney show last night.

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] SEPULTURA AND DEATH ANGEL MELT FACES AT THE GOV

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] SEPULTURA AND DEATH ANGEL MELT FACES AT THE GOV

The Gov was host to some quality music on Wednesday night: Sepultura, Death Angel and Truth Corroded. For a weeknight, the turnout was impressive—as were the band shirts and the years’ worth of beards. There were baby boomers decked out in battle vests among younger faces, looking around 20-something in age. For a band that...

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] SEPULTURA AT 170 RUSSELL

Melbourne metalheads were treated to an enormous evening of neck-breaking thrash last night at the first Australian date of Sepultura’s worldwide Machine Messiah tour. Joined by local four-piece Harlott and American thrash legends Death Angel, the punters at 170 Russell no doubt left the show that night feeling like they got one hell of a...

[LIVE MUSIC REVIEW] ADELAIDE’S COBRA PLAYS SECRET GIG

Have you ever been to a gig so underground it was upstairs in an office building? We have—last Saturday—and it was a red haze of musical goodness. Adelaide experimental band, Cobra, always puts on a good show—but this time, it was scaled down and intensified. A small office room doubling as the band’s rehearsal studio,...

[ALBUM REVIEW] GET RIGHT WITH YOUR MAKER BY PALACE OF THE KING

[ALBUM REVIEW] GET RIGHT WITH YOUR MAKER BY PALACE OF THE KING

Palace Of The King is a Melbourne four-piece rock ‘n’ roll band. Their new album, Get Right With Your Maker, is a pure genius slab of old school rock, soul, rhythm and blues. This is their third full-length player, which will be released shortly before an impending European tour. A little dash of Led Zeppelin,...

[ADELAIDE FRINGE SHOW REVIEW] SUBCONSCIOUS AT NOEL LOTHIAN HALL

As we age, we become more robotic and our subconscious slowly grows in influence like an invasive weed. By 35, only a slither of conscious awareness remains; making us vulnerable to deception. Magicians Jden Redden and Andrew Lymn-Penning prey upon the people’s habitual misconceptions in their new mind-reading and hypnosis show Subconscious. Since the arrival...
