Andrew Nolte And His Orchestra - FREE ENTRY http://www.moshtix.com.au/v2/event/andrew-nolte-and-his-orchestra-free-entry/96775?ref=RSS_rss_mallard SUNDAYS IN JULY! In an age where the Art Deco age is nearly entirely lost from living memory, the era of the wireless, pre-sound motion pictures and the gramophone it strongly evoked, lives on within the Orchestra! The Orchestra was formed as a result of a lifelong interest in early 20th Century history and thus the inspiration for an ensemble arose out of Andrew Nolte's vast collection of old records, orchestrations, piano music, film, magazines and newspapers. After their early appearances, the Orchestra had developed a reputation for performing music of the 1920s with an unmatched pep and vitality, a dedication to authenticity, and highly focused on engaging their audiences. In an age where the Art Deco age is nearly entirely lost from living memory, the era of the wireless, pre-sound motion pictures and the gramophone it strongly evoked, lives on within the Orchestra!

The Detonators 20th Anniversary - FREE ENTRY http://www.moshtix.com.au/v2/event/the-detonators-20th-anniversary-free-entry/97471?ref=RSS_rss_mallard The Detonators have been going for 20 years so they are heading into town to play a special 20th anniversary gig at The Spotted Mallard in Brunswick. They started off playing a small pub in Richmond 20 years ago and have always loved playing around the inner city pubs. 20 years, who would have thought!!! Turn up for this big gig, there could be some surprises. The Detonators were formed way back in August 1997. Always based in Melbourne Australia this popular hard working quartet have never been afraid to hit the road, haul some kilometres and rack up a heap of gigs. With a finely honed array of original songs and a stage show that only comes from years of gigging pubs, clubs and festivals, The Detonators through their relentless gigging and touring both here and overseas have seen them become crowned kings of Australian roots rock n roll. Their original music, to which all members contribute, is best described as a lethal combination of blues, rockabilly and early rock n roll.

They capture and offer a new take on Simone's feisty spirit, vulnerable heart, and hypnotic stage presence.   John Shand's (SMH) recent review of Schouw's sold out performance at the Camelot Lounge observed that "for the full power of Simone's material to be unlocked" Schouw had to "fleck those more feverish emotions with a profound sense of vulnerability, and this she did with such conviction that you felt it in your very marrow."   Expect to hear classics such as My Baby Just Cares for Me, House of the Rising Sun, I Loves You Porgy, I Put A Spell On You, and Four Women along with dramatic interpretations of some of Simone's more eclectic catalogue.

****1/2
"Schouw's show burns itself into the memory"
"For the full power of Simone's material to be unlocked, however, Schouw also had to fleck those more feverish emotions with a profound sense of vulnerability, and this she did with such conviction that you felt it in your very marrow."

The Laborastory http://www.moshtix.com.au/v2/event/the-laborastory/97535?ref=RSS_rss_mallard The Laborastory is a science storytelling event in Melbourne that comes to tell the stories of science - the heroes, the egos, the breakthroughs and the mistakes of genius. From forgotten history and lonely laboratories, science and scientists quite literally take centre stage. The Laborastory brings together five scientists from different fields to tell the remarkable stories of the heroes of their field. Each story is just ten short minutes. They tell the tales of the tragedies and triumphs of the men and women who made science their passion, and left legacies of groundbreaking discoveries that inspire the scientists of today.
The Laborastory was started in May 2013 by three friends who share a passion for science. Inspired by similar storytelling events around the world, they decided to start their own storytelling event in Melbourne with a science theme.

How do we know what is real and what is not? Us science-folk like to pin our beliefs on hard evidence. We want to see it with our own eyes. But there are plenty of things we believe in that we've never seen. The moon landing. Manatees. A million dollars. We are comedians, after all.

And what about when we can't agree on what we see? Some see a black and blue dress. Some see a white and gold one. Some see a giant distraction from the fact a giant orange-haired baby is the leader of the free world.

On Saturday 19 August, The Doors Show featuring Tony Dee aka Jim Morrison, will treat the audience to two full sets of classic Doors material. For the first half of the show the band will perform The Doors self-titled album in its entirety, then will finish off the night with all your favourite Doors hits!

Released in January of 1967, The Doors was not only one of the albums to have been most central to the progression of psychedelic rock, but is also one of the most acclaimed recordings in all of popular music. The album features the extended version of their breakthrough single Light My Fire, second single release Break on Through (to The Other Side) and the lengthy The End containing its Oedipal spoken word section.

The original album has sold 20 million copies world-wide and has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. It's 2007 remaster became the Doors' most successful studio album in commercial sales. In 2003, Parke Puterbaugh of Rolling Stone called the record 'the L.A. foursome's most successful marriage of rock poetics with classically tempered hard rock - a stoned, immaculate classic.' Sean Egan of BBC Music opined, 'The eponymous debut of The Doors took popular music into areas previously thought impossible: the incitement to expand one's consciousness of opener 'Break on Through' was just the beginning of its incendiary agenda.'

From London To The Moon - A DUFF ODYSSEY http://www.moshtix.com.au/v2/event/from-london-to-the-moon-a-duff-odyssey/96526?ref=RSS_rss_mallard Wild and permissive London in the late 1970s! What was it like to not only live there but be an integral part of its explosive punk and new wave scene. Many who experienced that madness are no longer here to recall the excitement and the excesses - but Sydney's Jeff Duff has survived (amazingly!) to tell the tale and sing the songs! That's just what he will be doing as part of Vivid with his own unique and engaging 'Duff-Odyssey', a ripping musical retrospective of life in very swinging London.

In 1978, London's Fleet Street press, and the UK's music press weren't prepared for Duffo's all out attack on the media. Not to mention audiences who didn't know what had hit them when Duffo arrived in the 'old dart' dressed only in cling film, taking on the hard core punks and singing songs for 'outsiders'.

Jeff quickly established himself in the UK and became the darling of London's new wave movement during the eighties. Soon even Andy Warhol was issuing forth his oft-quoted utterance 'Sinatra, Jagger, Popeye...& now Duffo' [London-1980].

At first, London's ultimate cool were outraged by Jeff's over the top performances but soon adopted him into their inner sanctum, where he became the darling of the hippest clubs in London's West End such as Blitz, The Embassy and Legends. And it wasn't long before Duffo attracted the likes of David Bowie, Paul MaCartney and Andy Warhol to check out his shows.

Duffo released half a dozen albums during his decade long stay in London and worked with some of the finest musicians on the planet. In this very special Vivid show you will hear not only songs from these ground breaking albums but Duffo performing some of Bowie's lesser known and long neglected songs - along with an exceptional all star band.

Show starts 8:30pm.

Kylie Auldist http://www.moshtix.com.au/v2/event/kylie-auldist/96865?ref=RSS_rss_mallard Kylie will play an intimate show live at The Spotted Mallard on 22/9. Catch her for two sets, beginning with an acoustic-soul style nod to her earlier albums co-produced and recorded with members of Australian act The Bamboos. Watch her then raise the roof with an up-tempo electro-soul set including tracks from the new album plus dance hits 'This Girl' and 'Ride of Your Life'. Kylie Auldist is the soulful voice behind the massive 250 million + views 2016 summer hit This Girl by Kungs vs Cookin' on 3 Burners and has recently dropped a new single Ride of Your Life, a collaboration with Boy George's long-time UK based producer Marc Vedo which has itself just clocked 5 million views. Described by The Music Magazine as "Melbourne's high priestess of soul", Kylie's latest release and fourth solo album Family Tree presents a new direction for the soul star, combining her love of contemporary Electronic Dance Music with influences from the hedonistic, golden age of Disco, Funk and Boogie.   Already praised by the world's soul and R&B community as an extraordinary talent, Kylie shot to stratospheric prominence when her sublime vocals on the 'This Girl' remix reaching #1 in France, Germany and Portugal and #2 on the UK where it sat for 9 weeks. It took out the #1 spot on iTunes in the UK and many countries throughout Europe, reaching the top 100 in over 50 countries including in the US where it has hit #2 on the electronic charts. Her fourth album Family Tree took out the 2016 award for Best Album in the funk/soul category at The Age Music Victoria Awards. She possesses a voice that can run the gamut from soaring vocal pyrotechnics to heart-wrenching tenderness. Her down to earth, warm but no BS personality permeates Family Tree in the same way as it does her live shows, which are absolutely electric with a huge dose of boogie power. You are definitely invited to the party but you had better be able to keep up!
