A promising Palace

Terracotta Palace have stormed their way to the forefront of Adelaide’s music scene in less than a year. Packing out shows at venues like the Ed Castle has become a regular feat for the powerful trio, and their infectiously huge live sound is now documented on record with the release of their debut EP Medicine. Without a doubt, they are one of the local bands to watch in 2012.

Tom, Ben and Ryan joined us in the Streetcast studio for their first ever radio interview – and their first ever live acoustic performance!

Fontanelle Gallery & Studios grand opening

Brigid Noone has been prolific in her contribution to the Adelaide art scene. As well as countless engagements as an independent curator and co-founder Adelaide’s only Artist-Run-Initiative in the city, Feltspace, Brigid Noone is now launching what is perhaps her most ambitious project to date – Fontanelle. The twelve-hundred-square-metre space in Adelaide’s north houses two galleries, a darkroom, twenty-one individual artist studios, and a work-shop area.

Streetcast’s Chris Brunner caught up with Brigid Noone as the gallery prepares for its grand opening…

Comedy’s nice guy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jason Pestell is one of Adelaide’s friendliest comedians; he’ll even bring a jumper for you to wear at his shows if you’re feeling a bit chilly.

Finishing runner-up in the Raw Comedy State finals – twice – may put off some, but Jason has taken it in his stride. He’s helped countless aspiring comedians settle their nerves, go through their material and judge them fairly at competitions such as Raw.

Jason is also happy to help out those in need, and when good mate Jason Chong asked for him to be in his fundraiser show, Jason (of the Pestell variety) jumped at the opportunity.

He stopped by the studios to tell us more…

Dream-pop with the Dunes

Adelaide-based dream pop two-piece, The Dunes, have been steadily awing audiences with their textured, percussive live performances since they got together in late 2010.

With Matt Reiner’s impressive slide guitar dexterity and Stacie Reeves’ gutsy yet melodic vocals, the two have a managed to create a unique sound.

They joined us on Streetcast to have a chat about their music and upcoming EP and Matt started by talking about how the band name came to him in a dream.
