SCOTT RUSSO & PHIL JAMIESON. The Cambridge Hotel, 21/12/14

Posted 21 December 2014 by Adz Carter

To paraphrase Billy Joel, it’s a pretty good crowd for a Sunday.
Even arriving here early to get a decent spot doesn’t work, as it seems the majority of the ticket holders have the same idea. The whole place is already packed just ten minutes after doors have opened, which adds to the excitement of the upcoming event. A big part of the night is mystery, as no one really knows what to expect. This is, after all, a night that has been billed as a co-headlining gig with two artists putting on an acoustic show, and neither artist is the sort that you’d immediately think of as playing acoustically (even though both have done so in the past). They are more synonymous with an electric sound, being that both come from hard rock backgrounds thanks to the bands they play in.

TAKE US TO VEGAS/ EVEREST FALLS/ SPARROWS/ SCARS HAVE HEALED- The Cambridge Hotel, 3/12/14

Posted 4 December 2014 by Adz Carter

(*Note to self, better look away from my actual notes and stop typing for the time being, as the first band are onstage and are ready to start*). Well, they look ready anyway, but are in fact just warming up. Their respective places are filled on the stage, and now this is it. No wait, it isn’t, that was just the first twenty seconds of a song. Okay, so the house lights have gone down, so now this is definitely it. Or is it?... Apparently the light guy was just warming up too as we heard another twenty second intro. The band plays again, and this time longer than twenty seconds. This is definitely definitely it, right? Wrong. It looked to be heading that direction, but wait, the music stopped and the dj started up. But he is playing Alice In Chains now, so who’s complaining?

Tim Rossington: Instore Appearance/Charity Show for “Run Newcastle”- 26/11/2014

Posted 27 November 2014 by Adz Carter

Having come off the back of a very successful string of dates at Airlie Beach, Newcastle musician Tim Rossington has been showing no signs of slowing down since returning to his hometown. His debut EP has been recorded, and has been sent off for mastering at the one and only Abbey Road Studios in London. Now, on the eve of a trip to America, Tim has been keeping the momentum up with more dates in Newcastle and the surrounds. Yesterday, many Christmas shoppers were treated to a rare lunchtime appearance (the first of a five day run of gigs) by Tim, when he played at the Cotton On Megastore in Westfield Kotara. Cotton On are one of the major sponsors behind “Run Newcastle”, and Tim’s performance was part of his association with the charity.

The Strange Stigma Of The Stones, Part Two: Beast(s) Of Burden.

Posted 18 November 2014

In the wake of the Rolling Stones taking Hope Estate Winery by storm in a crossfire hurricane on the weekend, fans and critics are still abuzz about the concert. Rave reviews have been talking up this appearance of Ronnie, Charlie, Keith, and of course Mick, ever since. However, the reviews have been notably quiet about the appearance of anotherMick. Naturally, the media being the way they are oh so frequently (treating any front man as being 90% of any band) , the main focus has been on Mr Jagger, but almost completely off one Mr Mick Taylor (and no, I’m not referring to John Jarrett’s character in the ‘Wolf Creek’ movies).
