LIVE SHOW REVIEW + GALLERY // RedHook + Reliqa + Linear (Cambridge Hotel)

To say that RedHook and the supports killed it on Friday night is a massive understatement. Despite it being a seated gig, the energy from both the bands and the audience made for a super fun night, filled with awesome music and terrific performances from all three bands.

LIVE SHOW GALLERY + REVIEW // The Buoys + Mission: Banana (The Cambridge Hotel)

Marking a return to gigs in the Warehouse at the Cambridge Hotel, The Buoys return to Newcastle with a bang supported by local favourites Mission: Banana.

LIVE SHOW REVIEW + GALLERY // BOYSCLUB (The Factory Theatre)

This is punk. It is honest, relentless and draws both social criticism and reflection. The type of music that makes you sit back and think about the world around you.

LIVE SHOW GALLERY + REVIEW // Slapjack + Mango Avenue + Camino Gold (Newcastle Civic Theatre)

This past weekend the Civic Theatre played host to a fantastic lineup of Newcastle’s finest bands all thanks to Newcastle Music Collective. It’s a beautiful venue to enjoy live music at, the way the stage lights illuminate the ceiling is grand.

LIVE SHOW GALLERY + REVIEW // Middle Kids + Georgia Mulligan (Newcastle City Hall)

A set that was full of energy, really well performed songs, enjoyably awkward banter between the members, and easily one of the best shows I’ve been to in a while.

LIVE SHOW GALLERY + REVIEW // Fangz + A Swift Farewell + Grenade Jumper (The Factory Theatre)

When you scratch the surface of Fangz there is an undeniable duality to them, they are a band for good times, their music is fun, catchy and you could play it just about anywhere to get a group of people hyped.

LIVE SHOW GALLERY + REVIEW // Sampson + Coconut Cream (The Lansdowne Hotel, Sydney)

Their personalities really gave me a sense of how genuine the band is. Sitting in the greenroom, before the band went onstage, I noted their chill presence as they joke “we don’t really have a before show ritual aye” they laugh as they calmly walk onstage ready to perform.

LIVE SHOW GALLERY + REVIEW // Camino Gold and Cooks and Bakers (The Cambridge Hotel, Newcastle)

While things still aren’t quite right, watching the Camino Gold boys play while the crowd danced in their seats and one punter threw ice from his glass towards the stage, it felt as close as we can get to normal.
