Come along, drink some beers and have a listen to some fantastic live, original local talent at one of Canberra’s rapidly growing live venues.

The weather is improving!
Obviously because we live in Canberra we should all keep up a healthy level of paranoia. Actually trust the sunlight not to retreat rapidly the second we walk out in anything less than full winter gear would be foolish.
Still, it’s nice to look at.
Now, what can we do over the weekend?
I love the National Folk Festival, I love it a lot. However I do have to admit that the tickets are rather expensive.
Many people admit this actually, some even complain about it.
The National Folk Festival have heard those admittances and complaints and responded with a “Pay By Instalment” plan, which is probably not quite what [...]
[ 22 August 2013; 8:00 pm to 11:00 pm. ] It’s time we got back to basics in Canberra. We’re about getting organised, thorough and providing as much help to upcoming hip hop artists as we can.

Unearthed Reviews won’t stay dead, don’t even try and kill it.
It’s too tough.
The gods of random number generation directed me towards All Guns Blazing, a 5-piece rock-metal garage-y outfit Canberran outfit.
Here’s what they have to say about themselves:
Rising out of Canberra Australia in mid-2007, All Guns Blazing began in a tin shed on a cold [...]

Recorded at a shed somewhere in Queanbeyan (or was it Chisholm?) sometime around the turn of the 21st Century.
The Martins originally consisted [...]

Fun Machine manage to be both Canberra’s best dressed, and least dressed pop-group.
What little clothes they do wear are fabulous is what I’m getting at.
See what I mean?
They’re kicking off their next tour this Saturday at the Croatian Club, and you should probably be there.
[ 21 August 2013 to 22 August 2013. ] I just received a press release that describes someone as “Australia’s classical music bad boy” and I could not be happier about it.
At 7.30pm on Wednesday the 21st and Thursday the 22nd of August you should probably be at Llewellyn Hall in order to discover just how much of a bad boy Matthew Hindson is! [...]
I recently made a shout out on the Canberra Music Industry Chat Room for local music videos we’d missed in our Canberra Music Playlist.
We got quite a few submissions. So here they are:
1) Something a bit different is Jessica Cottis Brahm’s Violin Concerto (Part 1):
2) Hold Harbour have quite a few but I went with [...]

Wine, beer, comedy, original music, ubercool venue. What more could you want? Hope to see you there.
[ 18 August 2013; 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm. ]
Dreamed of a club that starts early, isn’t crowded, where you can listen to good and varied music, play board games, read, crochet, play pool, eat cupcakes or just quietly drown your sorrows from the week…then this is for you.
What sort of music will you hear from our resident DJ’s Jay and Melina?
Indie, Shoegaze, Pop, [...]

Alison Wonderland is a name that is getting bigger and bigger, and now that name and the lady it’s attached to is coming to Canberra to play “house, hip-hop, Disney themes and dance beats”… Colour me intrigued.
Sydney DJ/Producer, Alison Wonderland continues to prove herself as a force to be reckoned with. With a party [...]
Egads, it’s back!
Unearthed Reviews is here, returned from wherever we left it.
When we last saw Unearthed Reviews I was using a random number generator to pick bands off a short list I had made of ACT bands on the site.
That is still what we are doing.
To make it onto the shortlist the bands had to [...]

Hit the floor together is a dance project created by a collection of over 30 indigenous and non-indigenous young Canberrans, along with many interstate dancers that looks, quite frankly, pretty awesome.
It will be hitting the Canberra theatre Centre on the 31st of July and you should probably check it out.
This new contemporary dance work is [...]
