Falls Festival @ Byron Bay, NSW, 01.01.2018: Day 2
Let’s not put the thumb on Georgia Maq and Camp Cope. Yes, there could have been a few more women on the line-up. But they are only articulating what a large number of their peers, fans, women, allies – Australians young and old – think. I’m not present as she as she causes the stir, […]

Lorde @ The Riverstage, Brisbane, 22.11.2017
I was always planning to get tickets to see Lorde on this current tour. The tipping point that got me into acting on my intentions was seeing the broadcast of her amazing Glastonbury set online. For this festival appearance she performed in front of a shipping container-sized glass box that filled with dry ice and […]
Marlon Williams and The Yarra Benders @ Howler, Melbourne, 20.11.2017

Gizzfest 2017 @ RNA Showgrounds, Brisbane, 18.11.2017
Rain. Wiping a small ocean away from my face I make peace with the realisation that this year’s Gizzfest isn’t something to be attempted sober. I slide a drink out of my pocket and into my mouth, wincing. Alright. Okay. All good, some pitch shifting reggaeton chugs out from the radio from a car that […]

RIP Scul Hazzards
