The thinking hipster’s obscure band Waterford have announced they’re recording a live album at the Polish Club in May.
Canberra beat rock combo Waterford will record an album’s worth of new material live onstage this May. The group, who have been working on a follow up to 2011’s critical favourite Say Ok, will perform a set [...]
buggsubique has posted last night’s show at the War Memorial to YouTube for our enjoyment and edification:
The Royal Military College Band played the 1812 Overture, 105mm towed howitzers fired, and the display concluded with fireworks. It rained the whole time.
If you’re new to the piece listen to the strains of Russian and French music contending [...]
Canberra Hip Hop export and MAMA finalist Big Dave has released a brand new single with none other the Snoop Dogg!
You can view the music video for the song right here.
Since announcing the single and re-release of his debut album “Self Made’ via local label KP Records and MGM Distribution Dave has been exploding nationwide [...]

The festival season has finally come to a close.
So is anything still on?
Leave us your suggestions in the comments.
“Dig deeper into the Unearthed Mines Barcham!”
“Sure thing boss.”
Today we have the Fig Newlies.
Here’s what they have to say about themselves:
We wear our hair like Stephen Pastel.
FULL DISCLOSURE: Stephen Pastel has messy hair.
Here’s what I have to say about them:
Remember in the early 2000′s you bought that soundtrack to some movie that was [...]
Known better as ‘the guitarist in every Canberran band ever’, local musician Sam King has stopped solely making other singers sound good and has decided to start singing himself. He’s pretty darn good at it too.
This is a song he wrote about song about Canberra, which was filmed at Folkie, and is played on [...]
Local experimental combo The Monotremes have been in touch to let us know about their latest song.
“The Monotremes are a proud Canberra outfit, experimenting with stylistic boundaries of popular music.
One of the features of Sand Newts! is its length, 15 minutes; the various juxtaposed sections result in an elegant extended form. In this sense, the [...]
I love Folkie. I’ve haven’t missed a Folkie for 13 years. I get excited when it’s coming and depressed when it’s over. The combination of music, circus, friends, tents, kransky, and pyjamas pluck at a banjo that resides deep in my chest.
However, with the National coming in at the rear of the craziest festival and [...]

Half a century on Facebook informs that an important question is finally going to be resolved at the Albert Hall:
Canberra City Band’s Spectrum big band goes toe to toe with the Fuelers in the all-out dance brawl at the Albert Hall. Spectrum will provide the cool swing for the socks dancers and the Fuelers will [...]
Gosh… Canberra rock tyros Los Capitanes out from under their rock with new material this 1 April 2013.
Think it’ll be any good?
New LOSCAP tune!!!
Check out our new musical direction, let us know what youse think.
The third You Are Here festival has come to a close. Fletcher Jones has once again become a torso and clothes-hanger filled wasteland, the Ellis Collective aren’t singing to you during your lunchbreak, and Canberra’s arts scene caught up on some sleep. It was a wonderful and exhausting ride, and already people are talking about [...]
[ 28 March, 2013 to 31 March, 2013. ]
The long break is upon us.
Surely there are things to see and do around town for those who have not fled to the coast?
Just leave your suggestions in the comments.
Unearthed Review? Don’t mind if I do.
Today I have the awkwardly named E A V E S.
Here’s what she has to say about herself:
E A V E S: 18 years old and from Canberra.
I make glitched beats that I would like to listen to on a thursday afternoon with a big cup of tea.
Sadly it [...]
I seem to have lost John. He’s not here to yell at me, but I’m going to do an Unearthed Review anyway. That’s how well he’s trained me.
Here’s what they have to say about themselves… actually for their bio they’ve put what BMA had to say about them.
“With each spin the debut EP from [...]
Supa Productions are putting on EUROBEAT – Almost Eurovision this April and we want to give you a chance to go. GO FOR FREE!

Every time I make a typo, I owe Johnboy another Unearthed Review. I may be here forever.
I checked the list and the next name on it was Citizen Kay. Ok here we go again
Here’s what he has to say about himself:
Originally born in Ghana, then moving to the Capital of Australia while still very young, [...]
Canberra at Street Level is an exhibition of BMA Magazine’s 21 year history at the Gorman House Canberra Contemporary Art Space.
I was lured along by the promise of free grog, which there was in such abundance that I can make no complaint.
For anyone who was going out in Canberra in the 90′s it’s a fun [...]
Local ambient rockers Everdham have mailed us to make sure you learn about their latest audio visual masterpiece:
This is the latest creative output from us in the form of a music video. It is a short film of footage we recorded in Vietnam last summer using our song “Of Southern Skies”. We are beyond happy [...]
To quote SBS Chief Political Correspondent Karen Middleton: “Canberra is a bit like your little sister, you’ll defend her ‘til you bleed, but occasionally give her a wallop of your own, and you’re allowed, because you’re family”. I feel this expression captures the overall sentiment of the Canberra Roast at Smith’s Alternative Bookshop on Thursday [...]
You Are Here continues to be one of the most exciting and exhausting events in the Canberran calendar. I hope you’ve been taking advantage of it Rioters.
Last night I saw a pair of time travelling scientists attempt to sell an audience insurance, I saw a pub full of rowdy drunks kept entranced by an even [...]
[ 22 March, 2013 to 24 March, 2013. ]
So what’s on this weekend? EVERYTHING. That’s what.
Where are you going this weekend?
This just up on YouTube by the ever awesome Beth n Ben:
We had a vit of fun on google images to create this photo clip of Beth n Ben’s ‘Back of the Line’, the lead single from their second EP Economy Class. Purchase the EP or the song here: https://itunes.apple.com/au/album/eco…
It has therefore been duly added [...]
Mr. Fibby‘s guitarist Zavi (sometimes known as Sam King) made a musical bike once. It was pretty great.
What’s also great is the fact that the guy posting this up seemingly has no idea who Mr. Fibby are. Then why is he posting this? How did he even get this footage?
I should really learn that whenever Johnboy asks me “Are you writing anything right now?” he is always going to follow up with “Unearthed Review time!”
Today I find on my list the Bus Vipers, and I marvel at how much a good band name can sway my opinion on a band.
What they have to say [...]
The scent of freshly made crepes floated upon the light breeze, mingling with the music and conversation as the Art, Not Apart festival took a hold on New Acton this past Saturday. A fresh-eyed crowd filled the precinct, eager to absorb the jumble of art and artists that were breathing life into this local festival.

Canberra’s festival season shows no sign of slowing down. The next big thing to step out into the city in the name of showing you a good time is the Village Festival.
From their website:
The Village is a beautiful, beguiling festival that exists to provide an intimate environment in which professional and non professional artists and [...]
All I wanted for Christmas (in March), was a less tacky Christmas event.
The track record for You Are Here (YAH) this year was a good one, the events I’d been to all turning out to be great fun. Christmas Lane unfortunately wasn’t one of them.
This is not to say that the dance crews [...]
Hi there. I’m Hadley, one of the co-producers of the You Are Here festival, and I’m just dropping by to debrief an event we put on yesterday called ‘Christmas Lane’.
In 2012 You Are Here staged a Beach Party in Tocumwal Lane, behind Landspeed Records and Impact Comics. It was conceived by festival producer Yolande Norris [...]
Order of the Golden Cardigan in conjunction with Grand Wazoo Production present Enlighten.
Chilled modular synthesziser music with psychadelic video taken from the 2013 Canberra Enlighten festival.
Revellers have made a big impact on the Canberra music scene in a short space of time, their 2012 S/T Demo was well received and a string of high profile supports throughout the last 12 months has set the stage for a big year in 2013. Their latest work ‘Night Time Lunatics’ is a fresh [...]
It’s lunchtime and a man calling himself Fossil Rabbit is making the most wonderful and chilled sounds with a guitar. I swear this music is helping me digest. I don’t have the science to back that up, so I’ll just have to ask you to trust me.
A collection of people are sitting around the room [...]
