Following on from the announcement late last year that the relatively young East Brunswick Club would be closing its doors forever, a solid lineup of much-loved local talent will be saying sayonara to the much-loved venue.


Uber-hot Melbourne duo Oscar + Martin will headline the last ever show at the East, bringing with them an arsenal of sugary sweet hits from their...

I’ve walked past the Phoenix Public House a million and one times and never so much as had a beer in the cosy front bar, let alone seen a band in the venue. As I stepped in there, I found myself wondering how this could possibly be the case. I nervously propped myself against a questionably structured railing in the corner of...

Due to touch down in mere weeks, raw hip-hop trio Death Grips have cancelled their sprawling Australian tour. And yep, you guessed it, "unforeseen circumstances" are to blame.


The trio were due to hit both East Brunswick Club and Northcote Social Club during January, as well as head out across the...

Support slots are a funny thing. Within the space of two months, I saw Jay-Z and Fucked Up perform as guests for U2 and The Bronx respectively. Both sets were incredible in their respective sense. But the label of support comes loaded with an impedance of context, one which wouldn't materialise in the festival setting, for instance. Lucky for us, Fucked Up have graced us with their presence...

So like most of Melbourne, I fought tooth and nail to get my hands on some Fucked Uptickets last week. It seemed like all of a sudden, their headlining sideshow became the most sought after ticket in town. 


The East Brunswick Club is usually relatively hollow mid-week but folks keen on some school night shenanigans were spewing out of the venue on this chilly Wednesday night....

A Million Dead Birds Laughing… or shit.


What do you love about making music?


Absolutely everything.

So more news surfaced over the weekend of Bring Me The Horizon being involved in yet another brawl with their crowd. In circumstances not dissimilar to their previous melee in Salt Lake City, the band was getting heckled relentlessly and this time guitarist Jona Weinhofen (usually regarded as a pretty placid guy) jumped into the audience to take on the heckler, shortly followed by singer Oli...

After announcing arguably their finest lineup to date, the good folks over at St. Jeromes Laneway Festival have announced a slew of Melbourne sideshows.


So, let's not waste any time, eh? If y'all wanna' catch the following acts, you best to get to the following venues on the, uhh,...

Today I'm extending the olive branch to Jenna of Tonight Alive and then swiftly slapping every naysayer square in the squids with it. Following Tonight Alive's signing to Fearless records last week I kept catching wind of dickish statements like "they're just an Australian Paramore", "just because she's a hot chick", to which I feel compelled to say, "no shit". The girls IS attractive and as...

The Melbourne festival can be an intimidating money drain at times, though it's always worth seeking out the smaller gigs that spring up around this time but with considerably less fanfare. Rat vs Possum may be the support for tonight's show at the Toff in Town, but their party-time set doesn't waste time with a slow build-up. Their live shows are always...
