THE LOVE JUNKIES

May 22nd 2013 23:35
THE LOVE JUNKIES
MAYBELENE


The Love Junkies aren’t angry youth looking to rebel against society. They aren’t conservatorium virtuosos trying to push the boundaries of musical experimentation. They aren’t aiming at stadiums, but if they got there that’d be cool.

They were just a bunch of mates from Perth playing rock n roll, having a few beers, keeping an ear to the ground for a good party and writing some great tunes.

But then in late 2012, triple j found their screaming party anthem Oxymoron on Unearthed. And then NME stumbled across their tunes, listing them in the top five Australian bands to watch in 2013.

The global music bible set things into top gear with invitations starting to flow including securing slots at Southbound, Perth Big Day Out and Groovin’ the Moo. The band also turned the heads of British India, supporting their recent national tour on what was

The Love Junkies’ first trip east, wowing crowds and gaining a slew of new fans. Delivering on that early promise, The Love Junkies are ready to unveil their debut long-play Maybelene.

A quickfire collection of tracks channelling everyone from Mudhoney and The Pixies to Roland S Howard and Blur,

Maybelene manages to capture the exact excitement and raw energy of their live show in what is a pure rock record.

Recorded in the band’s home town of Perth WA by Japan-based Canadian producer Alan Brey, the album featuring their breakthrough single Oxymoron as well as the title track Maybelene and live favourite Black Sheep Blues.



The Love Junkies are supporting the new album with their first headline tour around Australia this June, followed by extensive WA dates with Grinspoon.

June 2: State of the Art @ Perth Concert Hall- Perth WA

June 8: Mojo's North Fremantle (with support from FOAM, Mudlark and Flowermouth)

June 25: Flinders Bar - Sydney NSW

June 27: Lambda @ Alhambra Lounge Brisbane, Qld

Funeral For a Friend Tour

May 1st 2013 07:10
FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND
ANNOUNCE OPENERS FOR THEIR MAY NATIONAL TOUR
TOUR STARTS NEXT WEEK!

Opening acts have been let out of the barrel for the fast-approaching Funeral For a Friend Tour. With Sydney hardcore stalwarts RELENTLESS first out the main support slot already, a barrage of bourgeoning local heavy talent has been announced on all shows.

They’ll warm stages before Funeral For A Friend descend on crowds to remind audiences why they’re one of the most enduring entities of post-hardcore. The support list is impressive; including Brisbane high-energy punk rock upstarts DOLLAROSA, Sydney's raw and epic PERSPECTIVES, and up and coming post-hardcore kids ArmourUs for Melbourne.


Funeral for a Friend



Over the course of a decade, Funeral For A Friend have remained one of the most fascinating bands to come out of the UK. Their debut album Casually Dressed & Deep In Conversation has long been upheld as a landmark punk album of the 2000s but it by no means bred a sense of self-satisfaction for the ambitious Welshmen. The five-piece's musical evolution has been heavily documented and it has seen them arrive at the most confident, kickass juncture of their career in 2013.

Having spent almost the entirety of 2012 recording their new album, Funeral For A Friend return to Australia, refreshed and reinvigorated.


Their seventh studio album Conduit (out now) serves as the perfect precursor to this massive Australian tour. No strangers to our shores, Funeral For A Friend have amassed an increasingly large fan base with each of their Australian tours, each time cementing a more a fiery and lasting impression. This outing boasts ten shows through five states, making this Funeral For a Friend's most extensive Aussie visit to date.

Tickets on sale now, and with dates commencing next week, best get yours STAT.

RUSSIAN NATIONAL BALLET THEATRE

April 29th 2013 09:14
XDR (Australia) Cultural Promotion presents
RUSSIAN NATIONAL BALLET THEATRE
Swan Lake
The Nutcracker


Australian National Tour
September - November 2013


Returning to Australia to perform two of the most memorable and enchanting classical ballets



The Russian National Ballet Theatre returns for a tour of full-length classical performances of Swan Lake and The Nutcracker in over 20 cities across Australia from September.

With more than 50 ballet dancers, the Russian National Ballet Theatre has toured the USA, China, Italy, France, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Guatemala, Poland, South Korea and Japan transforming Russian Ballet.

Tchaikovsky's instantly recognisable music set against the wonderfully dark story of good against evil; Swan Lake is one of the most famous and loved of all ballets. This production by Evgeny Amosov, Artistic Director of The Russian National Ballet Theatre, is heralded around the world.

Swan Lake's glamorous set is evocative of the Russian Imperial world in which the ballet was created, while the haunting moonlit lakeside is perfect for the tragic conflict of the human and spirit worlds and allows the audience to be swept away in the vulnerability of Odette/ Odile.

One of the most extravagant theatrical events of all time, the original St Petersburg staging of The Nutcracker in 1890 was a remarkable illustration of the Russian Imperial style at its peak. It is known as one of the superior Russian National Ballet Theatre productions in the modern era. Joined by a huge cast in a fairytale setting, the, current staging is also directed by Evgeny Amosov and accompanied by a glorious Tchaikovsky score. This version of The Nutcracker has all the elements of an enduring fairy tale: adventure, fantasy, good versus evil, and of course, love.

The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded with support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation. The basis for the creation of the theatre was the necessity of promising young theatre with high creative potential, both classical and contemporary.The theatre's repertoire includes not only classical performances such as Sleeping Beauty, Scotland Suite, Don Quixote and Gala Concert, but also modern ballets set to the music of Mozart, Bach, Ravel and others.

Artistic Director Evgeny Amosov, graduated from the Perm Academy of choreography and then joined the Ekaterinburg Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet as a principal dancer. He is also a prize-winner of Russian and International choreography contests of ballet-masters and ballet dancers. In 1988 Amosov was awarded the title Honored artist of Russia and in 1990 was the leading solo dancer of the state theatre Russian ballet.From 1993 till 1998 he studied at the Russian Academy of theatrical arts. In 2001 Amosov co-founded the company Russian National Ballet Theatre.

The Russian National Ballet Theatre is a cut above many of its rivals.
- Washington Post

Their gracefulness, perfect edges and lines demonstrate why the ballet, like opera, is such a powerful art form. You can feel the emotion in your seat without anyone saying a word that you can understand.

TIM MOORE

April 24th 2013 04:28
TIM MOORE
Singer. Songwriter. Poet.



Here's what Tim Morre has been up to since releasing his EP last year "I've had a forced break from music towards the end of last year after a frustrating trademark issue involving a Tim Moore from the US threatening to sue me for producing music under my birth name; crazy i know!".

With this finally sorted Moore is building momentum again, shooting some videos and supporting for the likes of Passenger.

Moore will be on tour with Stu Larsen and Natsuki Kurai kicking it off in Adelaide on April 18 at the Promethean, he also has some shows in early May. A regular protagonist at intimate and moving shows in Adelaide's vibrant nu-folk scene, Tim is a gifted storyteller with a voice of untempered honesty.

He has collaborated with the likes of Stu Larsen (QLD), Joshua Spier (SA), Cookie Baker (VIC), Natsuki Kurai (JPN) and been involved with stack of local and interstate projects.

He brings his wide experience to bear on the first release of his solo project. Recorded on a shoestring in a small studio in the Adelaide Hills, Fading Fires weaves together six stories about deep breaths, wide open skies and the end of the world.

"Very occasionally you come across a songwriter who stops you in your tracks and forces you to listen. This is the hidden treasure we're all searching for as songwriters and Tim Moore has it in spades." - Tim Hart, Boy & Bear


"What a treat it is to find a folk musician who can be subtle in his methods yet sharp in insight and powerful in impact!" - Anthony Vawser, MusicSA

"Amazing lyrics. Captivating melodies. Perfect instrumentation and production." - Stu Larsen

Don McLean in Australia

April 23rd 2013 01:24
Lennard Promotions Present:
Don McLean In Concert

Lennard Promotions present legendary songwriter Don McLean In Concert across Australia in August 2013.

Don McLean galvanised a generation with his timeless hit American Pie, as each generation since its release has discovered, the poignant lyricism and unforgettable melody stirs deep emotion and empathy from all who encounter it, once it has visited it never leaves the heart of the listener, burying itself like a familiar comforting memory only to be re awoken on subsequent encounters.

A once in a lifetime song, from a once in a lifetime artist. This track along with the classic singles Vincent, Driedel, Everyday, The Legend of Andrew McCrew and numerous others confirmed McLean was a gifted storyteller with a talent that ascended his peers and rightfully earned him a place in the Song Writers Hall Of Fame.

As a special treat for Australian fans, Don McLean will be joined by Catherine Britt one of the country's most acclaimed singer-songwriters as special guest at each show (Rockhampton and Tweed Heads not included). Catherine spent 6 years in Nashville and has toured, performed and recorded with some of music’s most respected names.

Don McLean
Born in New Rochelle, NY in 1945 Don McLean was to become one of America's most accomplished singer-songwriters. His early work catching the attention of folk legend Pete Seeger who he performed free for in the latter's efforts to clean up the Hudson River. From these humble beginnings McLean has gone on to release some 29 album (all which are still in print) inspiring artists as diverse as Madonna, Fred Astaire, Chet Atkins, Weird Al Yankovick, Elvis Presley, Josh Groban and Coolio to cover his amazing music. With over 40 gold and platinum records worldwide.

Australia's love affair with Don McLean is a long and fruitful one, he held the attendance record at the Capitol Theatre in Melbourne with 18 consecutive performances, breaking the previous record of Joni Mitchell and was the first ever American artist to perform at the then newly built Sydney Opera House. Through subsequent visits, inspired performances and of course his timeless music, Don McLean's art resonates loudly with Australian audiences ensuring that his visit in August will continue to fuel the hearts of long-time fans and music lovers across the nation.

Her book, Klezmer Fiddle - A How-To Guide, is published by Oxford University Press, and is described by Folk Roots magazine as "the best exposition I've come across of Eastern European-style Jewish fiddle playing... Highly recommended." She has introduced hundreds of people of all ages to klezmer through her playing and via courses and workshops at universities and conservatoires, and at events like the Genius of the Violin Festival and Fiddles on Fire.
