Our own local purveyors of cool Blank Realm have been announced as playing the prestigious Glastonbury Festival amidst their impending European sojourn! Smash it to ‘em!
POST-HEADACHE Royal Headache purportedly have a second album in the offing despite incessant rumours of their imminent demise, but frontman Shogun released a couple of live solo tracks on Sydney’s FBi radio last week which hint at a pretty awesome post-band future…
‘BOUT TIME Congrats to Peta Searle for becoming the first female coach in AFL history, signing as a fulltime assistant with St Kilda this week. She proves that there’s far more scope to women in footy than admin and goal umpiring…
HELL OF A MIX
FLICK THE SWITCH
Bring a butcher, a Chilean, a seedy bloke and a vanilla gorilla (whatever that is) together, chuck them some instruments, and enjoy the musical mutations of Bootleg Rascal. Catch the band Friday, The Northern, Byron Bay and Saturday, The Joynt.
When The Babe Rainbow announce that they’ll be embarking on the Secret Enchanted Broccoli Forest tour, you best open your mind to the fun. They play 27 Jun, Black Bear Lodge and 28 Jun, Miami Shark Bar.
Clearly taking their latest single Flashing Lights quite literal, Sydney pop mavericks Date Night At The Museum have put together a lush film clip for the track, and will launch the sensorial love with a 24 Jul free show at Ric’s Bar.
HUFF PUFF GUSTO
KEEP ON BURNING
Long Gone Records presents a night of good ol’ rock’n’roll, featuring local trio Per Purpose, Sulphur Lights, Wrong Man, Maryettas and Moon Shine – and it won’t even cost you a dime! Be at Grand Central Hotel for Trainspotters, 14 Jun.
Alhambra Lounge will host White Summer on 13 Jun when the band roll through on their Smoke Screen national tour. With support from Cherry Dolls, this night of rock’n’roll should no doubt be illegal.
Things are going to be live and loud on Friday at Redlands Rugby League Club with Xens Arrival, Fox N Firkin, The Snatchettes and Lip Sinder all plugging in and ripping out. Tickets are $12 on the door.
FIND AND DEVOUR
ARNIE WAS RIGHT

The winter solstice just got a little bit darker with news confirmed that Acorea, Feed, pictured, The Molotov and Flannelette will all perform at Stones Corner Hotel, 21 Jun. Prog, metal, heavy-asfuck rock – prepare yourself.
He said he was going to be back, and he wasn’t lying. It’s been 30 years since Terminator stormed into our lives, and to celebrate the anniversary the classic will be screening 17 Jun, 7pm at Schonell Theatre, UQ.
ONE MORE SLICE
Making their visit count, muchloved folk collective My Friend The Chocolate Cake will play a family friendly matinee show at New Globe Theatre, 14 Jun, in addition to their 18+ headline show that night.
Smart and sublime indie jams for anyone with a pulse – We All Want To continue to combine melody and crunch like few other locals can. The supergroup of sorts play The Scratch, 14 Jun.
After a few years spreading their unique spacey sound around Brisbane, DTHWBBA are playing one last local show before heading back to Perth. See them off in style at New Globe Theatre this Friday with Elston Gunn, Tesla Coil and Walken.
Not the greatest start to our Origin defence, losing at home. Great game nonetheless, let’s equalise in Sydney and bring home nine on the trot up here in style in game number three!
RACIST AND GUTLESS… … a winning combination. Racist trolls harassing native Australian AFL players via social media during the Indigenous Round, god bless the internet. Some people need eternity in the room of mirrors…
HIS WAY = WRONG Do yourself a favour and avoid Christopher Lee’s “metal version” of My Way like the plague, it’s by far the most horrific thing he’s ever done in a lifetime of mining the macabre…
