Peaches @ Brisbane Powerhouse, 17.02.2023
It’s one of those perfect storm nights in the Brisbane music scene, a Friday night when there’s an embarrassing abundance of riches across Brisbane’s music venues, any number of major Australian and international acts vying for your attention. Indeed, the Friday night is just the start of it, with even more over the weekend. Was […]
Laneway Festival 2023 @ Wellington Square, Perth, 12.02.2023
I barely made it to see WA’s Siobhan Cotchin, due to the poor planning of how to enter the festival. I knew as a disabled person I couldn’t walk the 15 minutes from the carpark where you were allowed to be picked up and dropped off so I spent extra time finding a side street […]
Song of the Day #781: Summer Flake
Photo by Anita Shao Something from the open browser tab collection that I’ve been meaning to post up for a while. Summer in Brisbane is the worst. The heat, the humidity, where any small task not done in air con leaves you in need of a small sit down, a shower and a change of […]

Song of the Day #779: Doggie Heaven
Photo: James Caswell Another band on my “Brisbane bands I really need to see and it’s really quite shameful that I haven’t yet” list is Doggie Heaven. Brisbane always seems to do really good Post-Punk/New Wave sounding bands. ‘Berghain’ is a superbly crafted slice of synth pop, with touches of New Order at their mid-80s […]
