Canadian Music Week
360 has just been announced to join Lollapalooza 2013 line-up.
The profile Australian rapper who polarizes audiences with his outspoken voice on social media, announces the news on the back of a string of recent North American performances including South-By-South-West and Canadian Music Week. With the ever-present debate on whether Australian hip hop can crack the US market, this is a surely a massive thumbs up and a step in the right direction from this internationally-renown festival.
Conceived in 1991 by Jane’s Addiction singer Perry Farrell, Lollapalooza was created as a farewell tour for his band and has now grown to boast festival dates in Chicago, Brazil and Chile.
360 joins the likes of The Cure, The Killers, Mumford & Sons, Queens of the Stone Age, Grizzly Bear, Crystal Castles, Lana Del Rey and so many more in Chicago on August 2-4.
Whether you like him or hate, Matt Colwell (AKA 360) is an amazing live performer and it appears he’s destined for even bigger things to come!

Jack Carty – Official SXSW Showcase
Stephen F’s Bar on Congress
“…shouldn’t you have that stirred?”
Stephen F’s Bar was dead silent, the crowd captivated by Australian singer/songwriter Jack Carty.
His song had reached it’s climax, when the silence was broken from behind the bar with one of the punters ordering a cheeky martini and subsequent vodka-shaken racket.
The rattle of the martini shaker was swiftly followed by “…shouldn’t you have that stirred?”… Jack’s quick retort and easy, off-the-cuff banter what I’ve come to expect from the Sydney-based artist, both on stage and in person. Jack wowed his Austin audience with the light & colour of beautiful, ranging vocals and delicate guitars, which also featured a guest appearance from Hannah Shepherd (Emma Louise‘s talented keys player, vocalist and close family friend).
Having seen a number of performances live in LA and SXSW, I’ve fallen in love with Jack Carty’s music and so upon arriving back at the hotel room earlier in the evening to find him warming up for the show, my automatic 1st response was to capture the moment.
Jack Carty’s latest single with Casual Psychotic “What Does Your Heart Say” is the song we recorded and this moving impromptu rendition from a Texas hotel room is the first release from Jack’s latest ‘The Predictable Crisis of Modern Life’ – EP.
Jack recently completed a run of North American dates, released the new single in the USA and has just been on an Australian national tour, so I suggest if you haven’t seen him live already, that you get down to one of his shows stat. Immediately it will become clear why this lovely, talented and amiable guy has played alongside the likes of Josh Pyke, Matt Corby, Katie Noonan, Husky & more and featured at a bunch of Australian and international festivals including SXSW, Canadian Music Week, Woodford Festival, Peats Ridge and Playground Weekender.
Success could not come to a more deserving artist.

Fell in love with The Trouble With Templeton’s tunes & saw them live for the first time in LA. WOW!
For months I’d been listening to “6 months in a Cast”, “Bleeders” and “I Wrote A Novel” on my triple j Unearthed playlists, but had never seen one of their shows and stood captivated at The Aussie BBQ – LA.
The love-child of enigmatic singer/song-writer, Thomas Calder, this talented 5-piece BrisVegas band are in the closing stages of a North American tour, which has incorporated The Aussie BBQ showcase tour (Los Angeles, South-By-South-West, Canadian Music Week, NYC), a bunch of SXSW/CMW showcases and a performance tonight at New York’s Rockwood Music Hall.
2 weeks ago they released latest TTWT single “Like A Kid” and next up they’re jetting off to The Great Escape (UK) in May with a new album launch in June!
This is just the beginning!
