Melbourne’s Husky finally decided to make their first visit to Canberra, touring their latest album Ruckers Hill, and they set up in Transit Bar to a rather diverse audience. They were supported by the lovely Ali Barter - a very talented artist, whose rich vocals were teamed with ethereal keyboard riffs, strong rhythms and dark musical undertones.

La De Da Turns 3!!

12/11/2014 by OutInCanberra

"The word for “ambition” in Chinese is “ye-xin”. It literally means “wild heart”. How freaking cool is that? What better way to describe an ambitious person than saying they are wild at heart? Funnily enough, in Chinese culture having a wild heart used to carry negative undertones of savage abandon and absurd expectations. At La De Da we believe a wild heart is a symptom of a creative heart."

One On One Interview With The Living End

17/10/2014 by Jen Taylor

Over the last 20 years The Living End has dominated the Australian music scene. They’ve seen and heard it all before, but they’re still doing what they love; touring and making music. The band’s drummer, Andy Strachan, confirms they are still going from strength-to-strength. I loved it when I first joined the band - we were spending so much time over in America on tour. If we weren’t in America, we were in Australia. We were just following the sun – we never saw winter for what seemed like years.

14/10/2014 by Sam Tremayne

I'll be honest, the main reason I chose to review The Judge was because the coolest man in the world, Robert Downey Jr, is the protagonist. That was enough of a selling point for me.
