Australian Music Round-UpNews

One Nine Nine Four is a documentary on the punk explosion of the early nineties, directed by Sydney film maker Jai Al-Attas (who also runs Below Par Records). As you may or may not know, the film has been shelved due to a few financial snags. You can donate to the film to get it released in return for some unbelievable rewards. no really it's ridiculous what you'll get...If you have the cash. You dig?

Pushover Festival has announcement a slew of new additions to the line up, including Carpathian, In Trenches, Regular John and more. Here's the full lineup

Big Day Out's third announcement has been released, as well as a bunch of local acts set to play in their capital cities.

Yidcore have broken up and are playing their final show at The Espy in Melbourne on Dec 17

Heroes for Hire and Skyway are hitting the east for the "Beer Bongs and Singalongs Tour"

Dirty Projectors are touring Australia in March. Tickets just went on sale!

Laneway Festival has announced its second round of acts. You can view full line ups for every city on the website

The Red Shore have just signed to metal juggernaut/label roadrunner records. Expect big things to come!

Rise and Fall are in the country this week. Make sure you get out to one of their shows.
