Groovin’ the Moo returns to Bunbury for another year, showcasing a variety of international and local talent. Major acts include everyones favourite girl-next-door crush, DJ sensation Alison Wonderland, Sydney electronic trip hop duo Boo Seeka, Brisbane punk duo DZ Deathrays, the mysterious, anonymous electronic dance producer Golden Features, dance duo Client Liaison, electronica trio SAFIA, indie rockers British India, indie folk rockers Boy and Bear and Triple J Hottest 100 winners The Rubens.
This years festival has a distinct American feel to it, with several international acts making the long trip over from the states. Fresh from their tour of Canada, self-professed ‘schizoid-pop’ duo Twenty One Pilots will be joined by Rappers Danny Brown and Vic Mensa, dream pop duo MS MR, electronic duo ODESZA, electronic rock duo Ratatat and rockers Mutemath.
Local acts include hip hop artist Drapht, electropop duo GRRL PAL and futuristic electronic duo TIME PILOT. As well as Triple J unearthed winners, home-grown Bunbury metalcore rockers Longshore and young indie rock duo Mosquito Coast. Whilst Mootown will be returning to yet again showcase the impressive abundance of awesome West Australian DJ’s and producers.
At first glance, casual music listeners could be forgiven for thinking that the 2016 GTM line-up appeared to be lacking in some of the more popular, well known household names. But the sheer depth of amoozing (sorry) talent and enthralling festival atmosphere will ensure that Groovin’ the Moo 2016 will once again be an unforgettable experience. And when tickets only cost just over one green note, you’d be crazy not to copy and paste THIS into your browser.
I remember seeing [Great Gable] around two years ago, playing to about 15 people at the 459 Bar. Yes guys, I remember your cover of Paul Simon’s ’50 Ways To Leave Your Lover’. A truly great choice. Anyways, before this gets a little off track, Gable closed their set with the powerhouse new Foals guitar-tinged track ‘All Day Long’. Leaving the room ringing as they left, it did not take much to see why these guys pull the crowd they do.

Mother!, with its meandering pace married with pulse-pounding white-knuckled radioactive fear and fury, is unlike any film I've ever seen in the last few years.
At the hands of master craftsman and director Scott McArdle, a transformation occurs: the story of the Soviet space race goes from a strong script, eloquent and thought provoking but still a mere script, into the play embodied by five superb actors and a genius sound guy at the Blue Room Theatre this month. This feat is comparable to the launching of a man into space, just as worthy of applause but far more successful.
James Francos, the 70s, the porno industry. The new bingo for Peak TV.
The Love Junkies delivered another trademark high-energy, sweaty, charged set at The Bird on Friday, September 8, with New Nausea and Childsaint in support.
As well as smashing out hits from Tremelow, the admirably raucous quartet delivered signature tracks from their Gradient EP. Regardless, the band has come far over the years, with their unmistakable, frivolous sing-along songs and searing guitars, to their exploration of more striking threads.
With no more new seasons of Game of Thrones to look forward to until 2019 (!), let's consider the trajectory of all seven seasons in a way befitting a show that's often as harsh and bleak as the bitterest winter winds.
