Flume’s world domination continues as he works his way across America, packing out shows and winning a whole host of new fans along the way.
One of those fans, actress Vanessa Hudgens had this to say after seeing him live in New York City -
“It was seriously outta control. He absolutely killlllled it from beginning to end. Talk about some BASS! Haha.”
See what she was talking about and get your dose of Aussie pride for the day thanks to the video below.
Now in its 36th year, Celebrate Brooklyn 2014 kicked off early June with a headline performance by the ever charismatic Janelle Monae. With several venues throughout Brooklyn including a stage under the Brooklyn Bridge, the Band Shell at Prospect Park offers Brooklynites a local alternative to the Summer Series in Central Park in Manhattan.
When Beirut cancelled their Harvest Festival sideshow at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney in 2012, I was devastated. So I went and indulged in excellent Lebanese food down the road in their honor/my sorrow. My chance to see Zach Condon live finally came this past weekend though, at half the price, in true New York music-scene style. Headlining the 6th Northside Festival in Brooklyn NY alongside the War On Drugs, Beirut, emerged to a huge reception from the crowd staked out at the brand new outdoor venue 50 Kent on the East River in Williamsburg.
UK rockers Royal Blood flew through town recently and a bunch of us were lucky enough to be amongst the 1250 people (a number we arrived at based on the combined sold out capacities of The Corner Hotel in Melbourne & Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory) that got to witness the magic/mayhem that one of THE hottest bands in the world right now brings to the table.
Terminal 5 isn’t usually my friend. It’s annoying to get to by Manhattan standards, the shows are always sold out and overfilled, and worst of all filled with the most annoying elbow-dancing fiends. On this very Spring night in New York City however, The Knife made me forget I was even at Terminal 5 (this review would be very different had I attended one day early in torrential freezing Spring rain!).
Let’s be honest, Outkast’s Coachella set was proper LACK. LUSTER especially given all the hype surrounding it. Seriously though, the 3 piece dining set deserves more props (pardon the pun) than Big Boi & André, and yeah Chance The Rapper was cool but did we really need the Justin Bieber cameo?
What do you get when you combine 7 cups of Eagle and the Worm, a pinch of Primal Scream, a dash of Danger Mouse’s Gorillaz production and a bit of Beck’s ‘Odelay’ vibe?
The sound limiter at Melbourne’s Hi-Fi Bar was set to 105 decibels for Illy’s sold out show last Friday.
The crowd noise registered as the hometown hero took the stage, 112 decibels.
Job well done.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are coming off a stunning run of form that culminated in a Grammys take-over: three-peating the rap categories and melting twitter with a live performance of Same Love featuring Queen Latifah, Madonna and the biggest wedding of the year.
