Gig Review: Portugal. The Man And Givers @ The Corner Hotel, 9th February

It’s pretty rare that you can see three fantastic bands at the one gig for one very low price, but that’s exactly what those who visited the Corner Hotel last Thursday enjoyed. The double-headline bill of old indie favourites Portugal. The Man and new kids on the block Givers was a brilliant combination albeit a bit of an odd one, and chuck in opening act Guineafowl and you really do have an incredible gig for a Thursday night. It was lovely to get a bit of a taste of Laneway, and all the bands involved definitely delivered.

Gig Review: Grouplove @ The Corner Hotel, 2nd August

Rarely do you get a band whose name so perfectly encapsulates everything that they are about as Los Angeles’ Grouplove. Their music is nothing short of brilliant, but yet it really is their energy and obvious love for one another and for their fans that make Grouplove’s live shows so very amazing. And they demonstrated this beautifully last night at the Corner Hotel for their Melbourne Splendour sideshow.
