Happy 12th birthday Adelaide Comedy!

And what better way to celebrate than by having two of Australia’s best comics – Dave Williams and Rob Hunter – entertain crowds throughout the week. Plus cake, obviously.

Unfortunately, Dave partied a little too hard last night and was unable to make it into the studio…

Cue Adelaide Comedy promoter Craig Egan (hangover and all) to save the day.

Lucas Croall: illustration impresario

Lucas Croall is an emerging local artist with a flair for printing, ink, and fine detail. While studying at university, his work has been displayed in places like Espionage Gallery, The Academy, and Urban Cow, alongside his own exhibitions.

Right now, Lucas is preparing to take over Sugar in Rundle Street with his latest solo display: “Movement Over Time”.

The showcase focuses on his most recent illustrations, created with a new technique he has spent the past year developing.

Lucas joined us in the Streetcast studio and gave us the lowdown on what to expect.

Movement Over Time is on at Sugar, on Thursday July 5, from 9pm.

Sounds of the SouthCoast

SouthCoast are an indie-folk trio who started out as cover band under the name of Simplicity. But they’ve branched out to find their own unique sound which saw them take out the top prize at the Carclew “Of The Couch” acoustic night last year. They’re now resident band on the first Friday of every month at Adelaide’s premier live venue, The Gov.

Luke, Leigh and Kurt dropped by the sudio for a chat and to perform The Hangover Song…

Here’s part one of the interview…

And here’s The Hangover Song live in studio….

And part two of the interview…

Take a listen to We Are Young, the track that won the Heaps Good competition!

 

 

 

From Alice Springs to Jungle City

Take the heady sounds of the Californian desert rock scene, mix it up with the raw blues-rock of the 70s, add a dash of grunge, and let it simmer in Alice Springs.

That’s the recipe for Jungle City: a trio who are beginning to build a name for themselves in Adelaide since moving to town a few years ago. Like their musical idols from decades past, the band create songs from jamming together, and proudly admit they have a loose, organic musical style on stage.

It seems to have worked – they were one of the heavier names on the lineup for the Fuse Festival earlier this year, and have kept up their gigging schedule ever since. After a few months of song-polishing, the band set about recording a debut album out of a home studio. And in keeping with the DIY ethic, they’re happy to give it away at gigs.

Brenton, Luke and Kaileb from the band joined us on Streetcast ahead of their Plus One slot at the Ed Castle.

Maaaate! Bogans are now official.

The Oxford Dictionary formally declared bogans a part of Australian and New Zealand slang, much to the delight of mulleted, flanny-wearing top blokes (and women) worldwide.

Tom and Nick mark this historic event with a chin wag about all things bogan…and no, we didn’t have a VB to celebrate.

Goodbye is the hardest word to say

 

 

 

 

 

 

Justin Hamilton’s festival touring days may be over – for a while – but his mark on local stand-up will never be forgotten.

Starting up Adelaide Comedy with Lehmo back in 2000, ‘Hammo’ made a promise that acts would be able to develop quickly without getting ripped off.

Although promoter Craig Egan took over two years later, Justin’s visions have come true and he takes great delight in seeing our young comics thrive.

After 18 years in the business, Justin went out on a high with his final festival show ‘The Goodbye Guy’, and Tom Angley caught up with the SA-born comedian to ask him where it all began…
