Event Recap: Glass Towers at Transit Bar

15/04/2014 by Jen Taylor

Not even the rain and loss of Daylight Savings kept the dedicated from Transit Bar on Thursday night for the return of Glass Towers after their tour of America. The night opened with The Alternative, who brought quite a large crowd of followers. It was their first foray into the music scene with a drummer, having previously performed as an acoustic duo. They presented some nice acoustic guitar and solid basslines, and their final song (introduced by the lead singer as their personal favourite) was a definite crowd pleaser.

Academy has worked hard for the last decade to become one of Canberra’s leading nightclubs.

Event recap: Dan Sultan live

03/03/2014 by Sam Tremayne

"Dan Sultan is a cool guy." That was the overwhelming thought throughout the entirety of his set at Zierholtz last Thursday night. He packed the bar and rocked an hour and a half set blending a mix of the old and loved songs, and some of the new – with an album out in a few months. Dan’s stop in Canberra is the second on his Under your Skin tour to promote his most recent works in the lead-up to its release.

Event Recap - Maintaining the Rage with Frenzal Rhomb

18/02/2014 by Robbie Allison-Young

So…apparently punk is not dead… at least not in Canberra. The scene at UC’s Zierholz proved as much last Saturday night. As the rain fell hard and the idea of a fun night out seemed further and further out of reach. Instead, I found myself amongst the sea of unlikely revellers (I say unlikely due to Canberra’s tendency to avoid rainy nights out!) who turned up to the uni early, all keen to see veteran rockers Frenzal Rhomb return to the Territory and see how much they’ve aged.

Recap: The Kite String Tangle at Transit Bar

17/02/2014 by Carly Jade Devine

Transit Bar was filled to the brim last Thursday night. A sold out crowd packed the venue eager to see Brisbane’s alternative electronic artist and producer Danny Harley as his experimental solo project - The Kite String Tangle! The night started off with Sydney’s Nicole Millar, an amazing singer who brought us her sweet voice together with her DJ who injected electro sounds into the mix of her sweet yet quirky sound. She was amazing and reminded me a bit of both Lorde and Birdy!
