The guys from NOFX turned up with a different set list and a different attitude for their second Brisbane date this tour. It made for another great show in a messier fashion, at a rather full Tivoli theatre. Fat Mike was jovial and enjoying the vodka and sodas, with the crew keeping his mic-stand cup… Continue reading NOFX at The Tivoli 22/11/14 – the second coming
Last night The Rolling Stones proved to a packed house in Brisbane that they are still, after all these years, a force to be reckoned with. Despite a bit of a wait – which everyone probably expected – and a bit of a jarring start, they found their groove and rode it all night. The… Continue reading The Rolling Stones at Brisbane Entertainment Centre 18/11/14
The Tivoli got a little messy last night, playing host to everyone’s favourite punk rock dads, NOFX. It wasn’t a packed house but the front was plenty lively all the same. The rest of us were called rich pussies for not joining in the mosh, which is probably fair enough, except for the rich part.… Continue reading NOFX at The Tivoli 11/11/14

There was an excitable buzz going around the… Continue reading Bob Dylan & His Band at The Tivoli 27/8/14

A bunch of local bands were there to get the night going, beginning with classic hardcore tones of Loud Goes Bang who were just stoked to be up there supporting their teenage idols, they played hard too. We were then introduced to Raygun… Continue reading Hard-Ons at Coolangatta Hotel 20/6/14
Hangover – the title, the themes, the video – is a bit of a departure from Psy’s recent video hits. This track, like a cheap bottle of rice spirit, is a little hard to get to the bottom of. As with his previous international successes, you can’t judge the book by its cover, yet it’s hard… Continue reading Is Psy suffering a Hangover?
This was one of those nights I wish I had thought to get earplugs. The PA was cranked fairly high from the get go for the almost humorously angry opener, complete with a frontman who tried to make his own mosh, and the more classic hardcore tones of Adelaide’s Crisis Alert. Both of bands went… Continue reading Propagandhi at Miami Shark Bar 9/6/14
