Bunny Monroe Cherry Bar, Melbourne By Shane Pinnegar With a deep breath of the hallowed air in Melbourne’s AC/DC Lane, we finally walked into Cherry Bar for the first time on a very quiet Wednesday night, tread gingerly across the carpet that has gallantly soaked up a million beer spills, and order a round of […]

Rocket Room, Perth By Shane Pinnegar | Photography by Maree King Some nights, you just HAD to be there – even if not everyone else was. You know how it is. A band is road-hardened and energetic, and determined to deliver the best goddamn show they can, no matter whether there are 5 or 500 […]

  The Mountain Winery, Saratoga, California By Robert Kitay I’ve been waiting for this show for almost 30 years.  Even though I’m more of a hard rocker and metal head, I’ve always been a big fan of both Supertramp and Roger Hodgson’s solo material.  The interesting thing is that Roger Hodgson lives just over 2 […]

The Warfield, San Francisco, California Reviewed by Robert Kitay This was an especially interesting show since both of these bands I’ve seen before, but both were fronted by new singers this time around.

KISSTake – Mustang Bar, Perth, 27 September 2012

  Gags n’ giggles abounded as four middle-aged men in ever-so-slightly bulging spandex and wigs pranced about in super-high heels playing a bunch of 30-40 year old songs… …but wait – the KISS tour isn’t until NEXT year, is it?
