Yesterday it came from Konrad Lenz.
This long term fixture in the local music is one of the most covered local songwriters by other performers. Famous for [...]

Canberra’s answer to Tom Waits, the living legend that is Konrad Lenz, is launching a new CD at The Front on 18 July.
Looks like a good show.
Here’s the first single:
Mooch – To slink away and allow your friend to pay for the entertainment – Dictionary of the Underworld 1950 // Konrad Lenz: vocals // Randall [...]
The irrepressible Konrad Lenz has posted this to facebook and given us permission to use it:
Bus stop, Northbourne Ave, night
The Register recently described instagram as “looking at the world through urine filled goggles” but I still liked this one enough to share.
Got an image of Canberra you want to share with the world? Email it [...]
Smiths Alternative Bookshop on Alinga St in Civic is about as intimate as a music venue can get.
For last night’s show it worked beautifully.
Fans moved the hot summer air around the pillars, cold cold Coopers Pale went for $6 a bottle, and people walking down the street heard the music and just came on in. [...]

A cracking night out via Facebook:

Mikelangelo and the Tin Star return to Canberra on the No Sign Of A Pipeline tour Friday 11th May.
The group are touring to celebrate the release of the first official film clip from their debut album ‘The Surf’n’Western Sounds Of…’ which was [...]
The Phoenix is a mecca for Canberra’s boho fringe, a place in the bus interchange where toothless old men and hip young school of art types mix with disreputable bloggers over pints and lashings of original live music.
Singer songwriter Konrad Lenz has been taking pictures in the Phoenix since 2005 and has sent in [...]

It’s the collaboration everyone (Fun Machine) has been waiting for!
Swagger down to the cheap big beer venue that’s within cycling distance from you for the music extra vaganza of the season.
DO NOT forget to put rhinestones [...]

When attending the opening night of locally written and produced theatre there is always a sense of slight, well, unease.
Will this be a conceptual train wreck (with the music up too loud) that seemed like a good idea to the cast and author when they were [...]
