Here’s a bunch of snaps from the Flaming Lips show at the Hordern Pavilion. It’s evident from the photos, but this was a particularly frenetic and fun show to be in the pit for – the sheer amount of stuff flying back and forth, the music, crowd going mad, people on stage in costumes, crazy screen graphics, giant bubbles etc – it was an overwhelming sensory experience, which got even more nuts towards the end of the second song when […]
The last FBi 94.5 fundraiser for June hit the Metro again last saturday night, book-ending the month long series of shows. Dappled Cities, Palace Of Fire, Midnight Juggernauts, Bluejuice, and a ton of other bands and DJs played; everyone danced and sang and had a fantastic time, all in the name of pulling the station out of the fires of debt. They still need help though, so sign up and become a supporter. Do it! * Bluejuice * Dappled Cities […]

I’ve rarely seen a more tidy, clutter-free stage. Amazing soundscapes, minimal fuss.
Kicking off the Easter long weekend, UK band The Duke Spirit played a free show (courtesy of FBi 94.5 and Spring Court sneakers) at the Beach Road Hotel, Bondi.
Palace Of Fire, the new band featuring ex-Wolfmother members Chris Ross and Myles Heskett, and Charge Group’s Matt Blackman at their debut show at the Hopetoun last night. They were supported by the always-amazing Spod.
Here’s a bunch of shots from last sunday’s Laneway Festival, down at Circular Quay in Sydney. [Nick from Cut Off Your Hands, in a wistful post-crowd-surfing moment] I wasn’t actually feeling that pumped for the festival beforehand, as there wasn’t anyone on the bill I was absolutely gagging to see – although I was looking forward to seeing regular visitors Mountains In The Sky and Cut Off Your Hands again. I was also a bit disappointed with the top billing […]
