  • A Town In Fear’s Debut Album Show
    warmed up with an ironically dark but upbeat Milestones The Substation which had more than enough air to breathe for a single person quickly became a struggle to stay steadily on your feet Photo by Han Qi Guang MOSHIN 2012 All Rights Reserved It s almost impossible to separate A Town In Fear and the act of moshing altogether because that is what the band set out for every time they perform to give you a hell of a good show Crowd surfing ensued with a brighter sounding Traditions charging the crowd with forceful vigor to the point where an audience member was thrown into the performance area Fans gravitated with ease towards Linus straining their vocal chords thus forming a chorus to his growls The Hardest Fight a lower tempo number was a brief reprieve from their onslaught on any unseasoned ears before the fivesome went on a full on attack in Never Concede I want to see a wall of death You remember what happened at Baybeats It was clear that Linus wanted to recreate the crowd experience when the band performed at the Powerhouse stage for Baybeats last July Personally the exception this time however was that it was more life threatening I for one was not prepared to break a bone or two in the dimly lit space full of aggressive fans that were ready to tear each other limb from limb Photo by Han Qi Guang MOSHIN 2012 All Rights Reserved Thankfully the hostility subsided a bit albeit the fast paced nature of Trenches This was when the drummer Bruce truly shined Adorned with a large tattoo on his chest which aptly read Music is in my blood Bruce truly proved that despite his small frame you might want to back off when it comes

  • Jonas Brothers: They’re Back!
    the big screen to crooning on a big stage but boy I sure was surprised at the talent of this girl Her first number a cover of Rihanna s The Only Girl In The World already amazed me Not many people can hit that super high pitch of the song s chorus without going out of tune but she managed it all while jumping around on stage which takes up even more breath Kudos to her Photo by Sara Jane MOSHIN 2012 All Rights Reserved Her next few songs covers of Katy Perry s The One That Got Away and Craig David s Insomnia were pretty average but her new song Move Into The Music caught me A high energy song it sounded pretty much like the songs Miley Cyrus would sing when she first started off but she made it fun and even had the audience jumping around with her Finally after more than half an hour the people whom everyone went down to see appeared Running up onto the stage the three brothers sent the entire floor screaming without even making a sound With Nick on the electric guitar Joe on the tambourines and Kevin on the acoustic the three guys started off with When You Look Me In The Eye an obvious crowd favourite everyone was singing no screaming the lyrics out along with them The crowd was as spontaneous as the brothers themselves singing along with them throughout every song and started cheering the moment they heard the intro to Fly With Me And I have to admit Nick Jonas is one talented man Not only does he play the guitar he ran around the stage to the keyboard and drums as well Kevin who alternated between the acoustic and electric was pretty fun Getting all excited when Joe announced that they were going to sing a new song Let s Go he started smiling and almost jumped glee and was definitely the most energetic when singing their new song Photo by Sara Jane MOSHIN 2012 All Rights Reserved Joe the leader of the well loved trio might be the least musically talented but he is the most charismatic of the lot sending the audience in a frenzy just by flashing them a gleaming smile Halfway through Paranoid he jumped into the crowd started hi fiving his fans and even held out the mike to them for them to sing You guys are fun he laughed after climbing back up on stage The brothers aren t just the fun ones taking the stage Their entire crew made up of talented and good looking violinist vocalists and musicians came down to sing and groove side by side with the brothers even doing a synchronised dance with them during Pushing Me Away with Joe whipping out his camera to take pictures of everyone and the audience at one point in time Photo by Sara Jane MOSHIN 2012 All Rights Reserved Everyone was treated to Jonas Brothers special rendition

  • The Sam Willows EP Launch
    All Rights Reserved Performing to an extremely packed TAB on October 27 the quartet began the set proper with covers and guest appearances It only seemed rational that they picked their acoustic mash up of Fun s We Are Young and Train s Hey Soul Sister given its 35 000 odd views on Youtube The crowd however was disappointingly unresponsive Photo by Liza Ruedas MOSHIN 2012 All Rights Reserved That said the crowd did get increasingly hyped up as the two guest performers Melbourne based singer songwriter Charlie Lim and local rapper ShiGGa Shay performed a repertoire of originals alongside the quartet There Is No Love by Charlie Lim was well received by the crowd as did ShiGGa Shay s Rock My World These collaborations at the start of their EP Launch resulted in extremely pleasing tunes and amusing banter between the quartet and the guest performers The Sam Willows finally began performing songs from their EP after an intermission which also allowed the crowd to properly digest an hour s worth of tunes melodies and immensely pardon my language ovary explosion worthy vocals Backed by four supporting musicians the quartet opened with Crown then Crimson a song which might be what Eric Clapton would have sounded like if he decided to dip his toes into rock and female voices Photo by Liza Ruedas MOSHIN 2012 All Rights Reserved By Coming Train and Nightlight there were a few sketchy moments and harmony mispitches by Narelle Nightlight ended their set quite nicely with song that bordered on nostalgia and ethereality They however made up for their sketchy harmony in this song with Glasshouse This number in my opinion is the best of the lot The many layers of vocals instruments changes in tempo and harmony not only was reminiscent of the

  • The Wonder of The Wonder Years
    the words of the ever wonderful Jack Black in the School Of Rock So Punk Rock The Caulfield Cult Photo Courtesy of Rewashedoak The Linch Agency What they lacked in graciousness between members cue the middle fingers but hey that is So Punk Rock they made up with enthusiastic explosive movements especially by their frontman Nick His wild unpredictable movements on stage as well as his hoarse strained vocals leading his fellow bandmates made for a very great set We were then left to wait for The Wonder Years with piped in songs awkwardly unfitting to the upcoming set and we wished a more obvious choice of a playlist from The Wonder Years themselves had been used to set the mood Soon however the lights were dimmed and with Soupy Dan Campbell fronting the entire band clad in an Against Me White Crosses t shirt and a rather impressive masculine beard The Wonder Years came out swinging on stage with well Came Out Swinging of course They started off explosive cause when the lights came on we knew we were in for a darn good show The Wonder Years Photo Courtesy of Rewashedoak The Linch Agency One thing about The Wonder Years set that is definitive is the fact that Soupy and the band can indeed jump Before you dismiss that showmanship as merely an act our dear friends that is what makes for an energetic show Also undeterred by the lackluster crowd The Wonder Years belted out song after song in complete enthusiastic fashion Performing their hit songs such as Don t Let Me Cave In Washington Square Park and many more they certainly got their small but highly energetic group of fans on a high At one point the technical crew was told to cut the smoke machine
