AC/DC @ QSAC, Brisbane, 12.11.2015: Is it OK to Like AC/DC?

AC/DC @ QSAC, Brisbane, 12.11.2015: Is it OK to Like AC/DC?

Rock or Bust We be a guitar band We play across the land Shootin’ out tonight Gonna keep you up alright I’ll wager that almost every review you read of one of these Australian AC/DC shows will be written by a male reviewer. Chances are that they were also probably born in the 1970s and […]

Tame Impala @ Riverstage, 21.11.2015

Tame Impala @ Riverstage, 21.11.2015

A lot has happened since the last time Tame Impala announced a national tour back in 2013 after the release of their second album. The Perth-based psychadelic rock band’s loyal and intimate following transformed into international success. Lonerism won countless “Album of the Year” titles by the likes of Rolling Stone and Triple J. Moreover, […]

Hannah Golightly’s First Headliner at the Trew Era Café – 17 September, 2015

Hannah Golightly’s First Headliner at the Trew Era Café – 17 September, 2015

As told by Helen McCookerybook Photo of Hannah Golightly by Hayley Taylor Graphic by Hannah Golightly I love gigs like this. The cafe was packed and the gig had already started when I got there at about 6.30. There was a duo singing, two guys, one on bass and one on guitar, singing mellow early […]

Not a real conversation | Micachu and the Shapes live

Hey. Hey. I enjoyed your show.  You rocked, the way only ladies can rock.  I’ve been waiting eight years to see you play live.  No disappointments there. Yeah?  Thanks man.   Loved the fact you only played for around – what was it? – 35 minutes.  No chance of boredom.  Loved the grungy minimalism.  You […]

The Saints + The Tuts @ Zephyr Lounge, Leamington Spa, UK, 27.05.15

The Saints + The Tuts @ Zephyr Lounge, Leamington Spa, UK, 27.05.15

By Thom Ryan Leamington Spa is about as far away from the beach in England as you can get. It just re-elected a Tory MP and sustains itself on the memory of that time Queen Victoria stayed the night in 1838. Having lived most of my life in Brisbane, I didn’t expect to see The […]

Two reviews of Sam Smith (SPOILER ALERT! I didn’t like him)

Two reviews of Sam Smith (SPOILER ALERT! I didn’t like him)

Here’s the first one. Sam Smith Brisbane Riverstage Saturday 25 April 2015 1 star There’s a musical device called an appoggiatura. As the Wall-Street Journal explained, it’s a type of ornamental note that clashes with the melody just enough to create a dissonant sound. “This creates tension in the listener,” wrote Dr Martin Guhn in a […]

A review of Charli XCX live in Brisbane written perhaps not the way you’d expect

A review of Charli XCX live in Brisbane written perhaps not the way you’d expect

By Everett True/Kat Elizabeth Donald I took one of my students from Sex Drugs Rock’N’Roll down to see Charlie XCX and Tkay Maidza at The Met last week, on the stipulation she write something about it for Collapse Board. So she did. I really liked Tkay because she was just so young and had so […]

Peaches @ Max Watt’s, Melbourne 01.05.15

By Alexandra Duguid My feminist awakening was a slow burn. It probably started around the age of 15. Small things would happen to spur this along, usually musical discoveries. One of these discoveries was Ms. Merrill Nisker, more commonly referred to as Peaches. I discovered her when I was 16, with the release of her […]

Bent + Raus + California Girls @ The Haunt, Brisbane, 27.03.15

This is part of Happyfest, a fundraiser for 4ZZZ. 4ZZZ is a Brisbane institution, a community radio station that served as a focal point for dissent during the Joh Bjelke-Petersen years. The fact it’s taken me seven years to make contact – I finally performed live on Matt Kennedy’s show on Wednesday as part of BLMW15 – goes […]

Golden Plains – Number 9 @ Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre. March 2015.

By Darragh Murray My seventh Golden Plains. Best festival in Australia – perhaps the world – and as per usual, it was divine. OK. Perhaps there were a few speed bumps along the way. All is revealed in this fairly comprehensive chart-based review. Oh, and if you don’t know what the concept of ‘the boot’ […]
