This will be the bands first Australian tour, and after 13 years and 5 studio albums (a 6th is due in 2013), we’ll finally be able to smash the control machine, with the LA band.
Sydney metallers Darkc3ll are supporting all 3 dates – in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

"The wine has an undisputed attitude and a soft nose of dark berry fruits with oak and spicy nuances. Good mouth feel with hints of fresh fruit and juicy, smooth tannins. Well structured and rounded with subtle notes of oak, showing true Divine Intervention."
I’d love to see someone break out this wine at a posh dinner party…
Oh, these h’orderves are simply marvellous! You must pair them with this vintage 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon.

It seems strange that they say one of their criteria was "pelling proficiency", yet the listed Korn’s Jonathan Davis as number 1 on the list. Their band name isn’t even spelled correctly… (To be fair, they didn’t specifically say that they were listed in any particular order).
Out of the 13, the only female was Flyleafs Lacey Sturm (she’d be on my list), and I’m happy to see Maynard James Keenan was listed too. But Billy Corgan?? Really? I would’ve thought Chris Cornell’s vocal chords would kick Billy’s….
Who’d be on your list?]]>
‘Revenge… is like a rolling stone, which, when a man hath forced up a hill, will return upon him with a greater violence, and break those bones whose sinews gave it motion.’".

Opening the night with a still slowly filling room, Brisbanites ‘Cub Scouts’ pulled the crowd in with their energetic indie/pop sound and by the end of the set they had several people dancing, and everyone else sitting up and paying attention.
Getting almost as many people singing along as the headliners, Sydney’s ‘Nantes’ warmed up the punters with solid set highlighted by their debut single ‘Fly’. Effortlessly blending their instruments with ‘Dirty Pop’ beats, these new comers took control of the room and adapted the atmosphere to suit their live sound.
Launching off their almost completely sold out 180° Tour at the Cooly Hotel, Brisbane’s own Ball Park Music kicked out an energetic set that left crowd hollering for more. Playing all the hits off their debut album ‘Happiness and Surrounding Suburbs’, alongside a few new tracks, the six-piece played spot on – musically tight and absolutely entertaining. Hits ‘Sad Rude Future Dude’, ‘Literally Baby’, “iFLY’ and ‘It’s nice to be alive’ along with a sneak preview of their ‘Triple J – Like A Version’ cover of ‘Do You Realise’ (by The Flaming Lips), all got the capacity crowd singing along, and dancing their little hearts out.]]>
