Monday Music News Round-up

My ancient laptop deleted my end of year albums list, so you’ll have to wait a few days until I finish rewriting it/fangirling over Bon Iver.

Until then, I thought I’d share some music news with you.


Oh, the ninties



I’ll just let you digest that fact a little bit.

Yep, they still exist and I’m pretty sure they are still terrible.If you want to relive the hilarity of 90’s pop, they are playing a string of Australian dates, however it won’t come cheap, with tickets to the Melbourne show at $60 each. For that price, they had better play Barbie girl at least twice.

Thursday 8th March – HiFi, Brisbane
Friday 9th March – Cooly Hotel, Coolangatta
Sunday 11th March (Adelaide Cup eve) – HQ, Adelaide
Thursday 15th March – Palace, Melbourne
Friday 16th March – HiFi, Sydney
