Hey, come over here. Listen up. River Rocks is back again. And it is back for its seventh outing. Yep, lucky number seven. Though to be fair, each event has had music lovers feeling pretty lucky. It is not happening until November but we just couldn’t wait to tell you. It’s exciting for us, and we have no doubt at all it will be just as exciting for you.
Are you sitting down? Seriously, are you sitting down? The first wave of acts for this year’s outing of Falls Festival has been announced and it gets a big A+.

The Greens campaign for the seat of Polwarth is launching in style with Mattski, local slide guitar player who has played all over the surfcoast, Pressed Rat and Wathog – the greatest band to come out of Aireys and Great Divide. Large numbers expected so be sure to get in by 9pm.
SAFIA is a good thing that comes in threes. And that would be Ben Woolner, Michael Ball and Harry Sayers. The Canberra trio has been playing music together since primary school. I don’t know what it sounded like back then, but these days their electro-indie has been striking a chord with people left, right and centre.
Quick bite: The 2014 edition of the Scarf Festival wraps up in a couple of weeks so if you haven’t had the chance to make your way across to the National Wool Museum in Geelong I suggest you do so now. The theme for this year’s event has been ‘Divinely Wicked or Devilishly Good?’ Many of the amazing creations are available for purchase.
There remains a whole lot of love for the band that has given us such songs as ‘Electric Blue’, ‘Hey Little Girl’, ‘Crazy’, ‘Great Southern Land’, ‘My Obsession’ and ‘Man of Colours’. With their White Heat: 30 Hits compilation reaching Platinum status, Icehouse figured they would return the love by announcing a string of shows.
Step right up to the greatest show on Earth. If you think circuses are daggy, then you had better think again. Born in 1978, Circus Oz is one of the coolest nights out you could have. From New York to South American rainforests, Madrid to outback Australia, this rock ’n’ roll circus has played out to countless people.
