Live review: The Lemonheads 2014

You know when you forget how good something is? You have that moment of thinking, gee why did I ever doubt it? That was kinda sorta the case when Mr 90’s alternahunk himself Evan Dando returned to our shores this week with a full band in tow to remind everyone of how clever he really is. ...

Live review: The Dandy Warhols

Back in about March or April of this year my oldest son requested that I buy tickets to see The Dandy Warhols when they hit Australia in August. I knew he was into them because: a. when he’s into something we all know about it, and b. when he’s into something we all know about ...

Winter secrets bring a winter sparkle to Sydney.

  You know when you are so excited for something that you almost dread it happening for fear of it not living up to your high expectations? That was what was going through my mind last week as I prepared to see the amazingly talented Clare Bowditch for the first time. I first saw Clare ...

Oh Come On!

I wasn’t planning to post about seeing The Julie Ruin {yeah right, who am I kidding?}, but Wednesday nights show in Melbourne was just fifty million kinds of super duper awesome and I can’t resist. And even though we still have the Sydney show tonight, I just can’t imagine it being better, because the Melbourne ...

It’s A Long Way Back To Bed…

This post will no doubt be able to write itself, since I have had one of those weeks. It all started last weekend when, amid much excitement, we were eagerly anticipating seeing The Beasts Of Bourbon two nights in a row, with two different lineups and different set-lists.

These are the women who inspire me, who rock like there’s no tomorrow, and who would no doubt think “thank-god-there-was-no-internet-when-she-was-sixteen” if they knew how much I adore them. Now, I am of course a mature, intelligent woman. I ...

An Aural Assault

First of all, I know I said that I would send all of my music related posts to my other blog, but I had such an amazingly great night on Saturday that I really wanted to share it with all of my regular readers. Dinosaur Jr, Saturday the 16th of March at The HiFi in ...

For this weeks Flashback Friday link up with the lovely Cathy at The Camera Chronicles, I found that  inspiration struck in the wee hours one night while I was having trouble falling asleep. ...

A Rockin’ Stroll.

Hi everyone! It’s been a crazy week. Of course it’s just a few days until Christmas, school finished up for the year, work got frantic before it could wind down, and HSC results came in, but undoubtedly the best part was that we managed to squeeze in an overnight trip to Melbourne to see Evan ...
