Last Friday night saw Sydney based band Sparkadia hitting up Melbourne’s Forum Theatre to play a show as part of their recent album release The Great Impression.

The late winter sun penetrated early this year, lifting the spirits of Melbournians everywhere. It is no coincidence that the mood of the general public increases enormously when the weather is better and when moods improve, people are more inclined to give away free shit.

But enough about the audience, because we’re here to review the performance of this lively band from Utah..
On Wednesday I was lucky enough to attend the second sold out show for psychedelic girl-group Warpaint. The Californian sass-monsters played a touching set, recreating the ambient tones of debut LP “The Fool”, and playing with the audience’s emotions as much as I wanted them to play with my genitals.
