Opposites Attract. "The Dissociatives". Thebarton Theatre. [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2004-07)
The link between Daniel Johns and dance mensch Paul Mac is both surprising and entirely likely - even if they are half a generation apart, and one comes from teenage grunge, and the other from the Very Cool end of the ...
You Can (Still) Get Anything You Want …. Arlo Guthrie. Norwood Concert Hall. [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2004-07)
There is something irrepressibly good-natured about Arlo Guthrie and he’s been like that for forty years. Opening with "Chilling of the Evening", one of his earliest folk rock songs, he follows with a string band ditty ...
Return Journey. Emmylou Harris with Buddy Miller and Kasey Chambers. Thebarton Theatre. [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2001-05)

Parallel Worlds. "Blondie". Thebarton Theatre. [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2003-09)
Video may have killed some radio stars but it was the absolute making of Blondie. From their first appearance in 1977 at the height of the Punk and New Wave incursions, this New York pop band not only made their mark but ...
Back to Beguinnings. "Roger McGuinn". Governor Hindmarsh [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2001-07)
I first heard of Roger McGuinn when he was known as Jim. He was the serious young ectomorph in the houndstooth coat and little black lozenge spectacles on the cover of the first Byrds album. Foppish in their American Carnaby ...
Distant Light Shines Brightly. Alex Lloyd. Heaven II. [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2003-12)
The Heaven set strongly favours the new CD. The title track, Distant Light follows, with Felix Bloxsom’s choppy drum intro curving into those close vocal harmonies - it won’t be long, a Lennon McCartney mantra with ...
Single Bill. Billy Bragg with Dave Graney Show. Norwood Concert Hall. [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2001-11)
The prospect of The Dave Graney Show on the same card as Billy Bragg made this event doubly appealing. But I am sorry to report Mr Graney ‘s opening set is a disappointment. On stage and nearing the end of his solo tour, ...
Blind Faith Up Close and Personal. "The Blind Boys of Alabama". Governor Hindmarsh. [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2003-05)
In Adelaide for a second time are The Blind Boys of Alabama, the gospel singing group founded in 1939 and enjoying considerable chic since moving several years ago to Peter Gabriel’s Real Music label and collaborating with ...
Go-Betweens Get Back Their Mojo. "The Go-Betweens". Governor Hindmarsh. [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2003-07)
The Go-Betweens are having a new golden age - not only with strong current material, but a lineup that is nimble, thrifty and as appealing as any around. ... Listen to the encores - The Clock, Spring Rain, Was There Anything ...
Heart in the Highlands. Bob Dylan with Paul Kelly. Entertainment Centre. [review]
(Adelaide Review, 2001-04)
This time he blew in from the West. Still on the Neverending Tour, and back in Australia - three years on, and sixth time round - Bob Dylan has turned his Sisyphean treadmill into a victory lap.
