Just saw Art Vs Science last night at the Hifi in Brisbane. Fantastic show. Such an energetic and fun loving band.

They even flawlessly covered 'Boom Shake The Room' and Electric Six's "Gay Bar". Cool kids

Soundwave this year has such a varied lienup that there is something for pretty much everybody. Granted the focus is on metal but surely there is still a few bands that tickle your fancy.

Really hoping I can get down to Southbound next year. Would love to see Angus & Julia, Interpol and The National

I loved how long this roundup was, and the whole festival spam at the start.

It's going to be an amazing summer

They had to announce them all in one week. It's the only way to make me have to spend 3 hours on this round-up this morning.

On the other hand, I do wish I could go to all of them, particularly Falls.
