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.

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’ […]

Sometimes forgettable, always horrible… Foo Fighters live in Brisbane

Sometimes forgettable, always horrible… Foo Fighters live in Brisbane

By Milton Fiennes Foo Fighters Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane Foo Fighters bum rush the stage to tumultuous applause from an awfully dressed, overweight crowd. They break into the first of many forgettable songs that only have 3 chords the entire time. There’s a 60-year-old guitarist nobody addresses. He looks like he’s won a competition to fuck […]

In Words: The Courtneys + Hinds + The Furrs @ Black Bear Lodge, 20.02.2015

By Ben Green When it rains it pours. It’s one of those nights where Brisbane’s already marginal music vote is split, a full card of candidates rolling into town and setting up their soapboxes on opposite street corners. The elder axeman, the emo-glam queen, the scrappy next-big-things. Not to mention the cyclone bearing down. “You’ll […]

Xylouris White – Goats, and live in January 2015 at Howler, Brunswick

 Words: Boris van de Legende Melbourne’s had a long-term love affair with the Dirty Three, and a long history of Greek migration – the largest Greek population outside of Athens they used to say, or some such rubbish. Anyway, there’s lots of Greeks – I’m married to one, for example; I live in Melbourne, so the […]
