BEAR’S DEN | THINK OF ENGLAND

Taking a more laid back, stripped down approach than any of their label-mates, including Bad Suns and Rubblebucket, Bear’s Den tend towards the introspective. Their new album could quite happily find itself accompanying a TV drama about attractive people in their mid-twenties trying to discover themselves.

FRONT ROW | BARO, MILWAUKEE BANKS, STAX OSSET

The Curtin has undergone a bit of a rebrand recently. They’ve brought on Huxtaburger to feed the hungry mouths, jazzed up the band room and rethought the bands they book and we couldn’t be happier! They’ve injected some much needed life into a venue that seemed to be struggling for a little bit. The acts that have been added to the bill have been some of the best, freshest acts in the country. Last Thursday, the venue curated a lineup that consisted of two acts from our very own Block Party lineup, so we were super pumped to get to see Stax Osset and Milwuakee Banks again.

FRONT ROW | SUGAR MOUNTAIN

A nice sunny day in Melbourne is really the perfect day for a festival. Heading into the Victorian College of Arts for this year’s Sugar Mountain, I wasn’t too sure what to expect as I’d never been before. Great start though – we were welcomed into the site with by an archway of trees decorated with tinsel bunting! And I love bunting, not to mention anything that shines!
