Live Concerts

  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. We’re long time fans of this great Australian band who we last filmed in 2013. After such a long time and so many great songs since then (not to mention a shutdown of the live scene for the best part of two years), 2022 seemed like the perfect time to catch up with them again as part of our World Stage project – and they really delivered at this sold out show!  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. One of the great Irish rock bands (although perhaps not quite as well known as that other famous Irish band from the 80s!) The Saw Doctors, perhaps not surprisingly, inject a strong Celtic feel into their music (but they’re not a folk band!). Formed by Leo Moran and Davy Carton, the only two constants of the band over the decades, they once held the record for Ireland’s biggest-selling single of all time, “I Useta Lover,” (featured in this set) which topped the Irish charts for a massive nine weeks in 1990 (back when that really counted for something, based as it was on physical sales!). They experienced a career resurgence in the late 2000s following their Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2008 Irish Music Awards and the subsequent release of a ‘best of’ compilation in 2009 (which went platinum just weeks after release). We caught them in Australia in 2010 off the back of this increased profile for the band. They’re still around - in fact, they’re playing dates in the UK and the US in late 2022, so the release of this show is nothing if not timely!  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. A band that needs almost no introduction to aficionados of ‘garage rock’, it was The Sonics from Tacoma, Washington, back in 1963, who paved the path with their first single ‘The Witch’. The group’s persistence and passion led to the release of even more fiery tracks including ‘Cinderella’, ‘Shot Down’ and fan-favourite ‘Psycho’. While calling it quits five years later, reuniting briefly in 1972 and again in 1980, this allowed the rock revolution to take hold. Artists ranging from Nirvana to Mudhoney (already here on Moshcam!), The Hives (also here!) and The White Stripes cited them as an influence. Captured here in 2012, when they joined the Hoodoo Gurus ‘invitational’ Dig It Up, the band showed why they’re still held in such high regard. Age has definitely not wearied them! As band member Robert Lind told us a few years later (on a subsequent tour of Australia): “We’re not mechanical, we play hard and with everything that we have. Our understanding now (and always has been) is that those people are paying thirty to forty dollars to come see us and all we have to do is play one set for an hour. We’ll go out there and give them everything we’ve got.” Say no more!  
  • Live at Annandale Hotel. One of the things we love at Moshcam is the experience of coming across amazing new acts that seem to come out of nowhere - they stand apart from the rest with an energy that is impossible to ignore. Melbourne's The Temper Trap definitely fell into that category for us. Emerging in the mid 2000s, it was a stunning performance at St Jerome's Laneway Festival in March 2006 that signalled their 'arrival' as serious players. Their debut EP was a brilliant opening statement from a band that were destined to achieve great things – and their subsequent album releases only confirmed their talent. A keen ear for melody, matched by infectious rhythms and symphonic, arresting guitars, the band further separated from the pack by lead singer Dougie's captivating, unique vocals. Not much has been heard of them as a band in recent times (but they ain’t alone there during these crazy COVID times!). We very much hope we haven’t heard the last of these guys. In the meantime, check out this show we caught back in 2009. A year later they were playing in a venue five times the size (Enmore Theatre) and we caught that show as well (which we’ll bring you soon).  
  • Live at The Metro Theatre, Sydney. The Vines had it all in front of them with the release of their debut album ‘Highly Evolved’ in 2002 - including an NME Single of the Week (for the title track), an appearance on the cover of Rolling Stone (the first Australian artist since Men At Work in 1983 to achieve that) and a number 11 album on the US charts. With a ‘90s spin on '60s garage rock they were an unstoppable and frenetic live force. That stellar debut was always going to be a hard act to follow, singer/songwriter/guitarist Craig Nicholls continued to push his artistic vision and their live performances remained nothing less than hypnotic. This short and sharp show, from 2007, followed the release of their 3rd album ‘Vision Valley’.  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. For those who came in late, the road looms large and long in the Waifs’ inspirational tale of self-determined international success. It intersected for sisters Donna and Vikki and guitarist Josh in a remote corner of the Western Australian desert in the early 90s. This big theatre show from 2008 shows how far they'd come.  
  • Live at the Hordern Pavilion, Sydney. We’d already filmed the band way back when on one of their first Australian tours. That was 2008, so we were chuffed to see the band almost 7 years later, this time selling out a venue almost 10 times as big. To do the gig justice, we brought in 6 camera operators, as well as a camera attached to a 40-foot crane. Safe to say, it was an epic gig that evoked memories of Beatlemania. (Just wait till you see how nuts the crowd goes in this one!). The band put on an absolute clinic in indie rock, blazing through their biggest anthems with an electrifying energy. Cap it off with a roof-raising rendition of “Let’s Dance to Joy Division” and you’ve got one of our favourite shows of 2015.  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. One of the giants of the British alternative scene, driven primarily by Miles Hunt (the songwriter, guitarist and vocalist), the band initially broke up in 1994. But you can’t keep a good songwriter down and Hunt reformed the band in 2000 and, in one form or another, they’re still going today. We captured this show in 2011 when they were touring to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their third studio album ‘Never Loved Elvis’.  
  • Live at Sydney Festival, Sydney. Consistently led by Kristin Hersh since their formation, Throwing Muses pioneered a thrillingly raucous form of ‘alt rock’ years before the term existed. Their extraordinarily textured, tempo-shifting music, combined with Kirstin’s intuitive, dextrous singing, joins the dots between elliptical post-punk, harmonious folk jangle pop and rockabilly thunder. Touring and collaborating with the likes of The Pixies and REM’s Michael Stipe gives you an idea of where they sit in the world. This show from 2009 (when they performed at the Sydney Festival) is a great demonstration of their arresting melodic structures and articulate songcraft.  
  • Live at Irving Plaza, New York. Having already conquered the UK with his chart-topping debut album ‘Long Way Down’, we caught Tom Odell’s dazzling live show at Irving Plaza, New York City in 2013. Watch the 22-year-old English wunderkind deliver stirring hits like ‘Another Love’ (10 million+ views on Youtube) as he brings his heart-wrenching album to life in gorgeous fashion.  
  • Live at Koko, London. If you know of a more energetic, charismatic and good fun frontman than Turbowolf‘s Chris Georgiadis, we don’t believe you. Yes on this massive night back in 2013 of punk rock riffs, band member debuts (bass vixen Lianna Davies can really wail), big hair, loud music and even louder shirts (our eyes are still stinging) we – along with most of the punters – became absolutely hooked on the high-octane musical offering on show at Koko during these UK rocker’s set profiling songs from their first, self-titled album. We can’t think of a better decision than to take the mob leader’s advice and ”get your fucking groove on” to the dirty, fuzzy and downright sexy musical stylings of Bristol’s gift to rock music: Turbowolf.  
  • Live at Factory Theatre. One of the most-lauded music acts in Australia’s alternative scene throughout the 1990s, Underground Lovers bridge the divide between ‘traditional’ drums and wires rock bands and the electronic sounds that came to the fore in the 90s. Their definitive album ‘Leaves Me Blind’ was listed at No 54 in ‘100 Best Australian Albums’ published in 2010. They were very active until the early 2000s (even supporting New Order on their 2002 Australian tour) but took an ‘extended break’ and didn’t return (with their classic early 90s lineup) until 2009. We caught this show in 2011 with that lineup in blistering form.  
  • Live at The Metro Theatre, Sydney. The production collective that continues to defy definition with its blend of electronic, hip-hop, dance and rock. Filmed here in 2008 at the Metro Theatre in Sydney, it features a range of killer tracks including Eye For An Eye.  
  • Live at Oxford Art Factory, Sydney. Originally from New Zealand (well, we guess they’re still from New Zealand!), this psychedelic rock band is now based in the USA. Formed in Auckland in 2010, they released their first album in 2011 to much critical acclaim (Pitchfork gave it an 8.1). Their second album (‘II’) was even more well received and preceded an extensive world tour during which they consistently sold out shows in the UK/Europe and North America. This show, captured in an intimate venue in Sydney during 2011 was off the back of their first album and shows a band set for big things.  
  • Live at the Electric Ballroom, London. These guys have to be seen to be believed. Just try Blues Hand Me Down and you'll be a convert. This show is from 2011 off the back of their debut album  
  • Live at the Manning Bar, Sydney. Brisbane grunge heroes Violent Soho headed out on their biggest national tour in 2014 and we captured the Mansfield lads killing it at one of THREE sold-out shows at Manning Bar in Sydney!
