Live Concerts

  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. “What a lovely little civilised Sunday night concert this is!” It’s hard to imagine the Modfather holding a civilised gathering back in his rebellious days with The Jam, but on this Sunday night Paul Weller and his band ended a trio of Sydney shows with a final, extraordinary performance in the intimate surrounds of the Metro Theatre. Australian fans had waited more than two decades for Weller’s long-overdue 2008 shows, and when he returned with his Wake Up The Nation two years later when we filmed this show, none of that anticipation had dissipated. Few musicians have flown the Mod flag with the same style as Weller, and thankfully that night he delivered the same degree of punk rock passion he had in the ’70s to the eager crowd. The sharply dressed silver fox delighted them with spirited tunes including ‘From The Floorboards Up’, ‘Into Tomorrow’, ’22 Dreams’. And true to his word (“I promise to play you some old tunes in a little bit…if you behave”), he threw in Jam hits ‘Pretty Green’ and ‘Art School’ plus the classic ‘Shout To The Top’ from his days with The Style Council. Now that’s entertainment.  
  • Live at the Factory Theatre, Sydney. In true hardcore/punk fashion, a blistering 40 minute ‘all killer, no filler’ set from the San Diego outfit, caught flying high in 2010 around the time of their second album ‘Selfish Machines’.  
  • Live at the State Theatre, Sydney. Forget England, PJ Harvey had Sydney shaking with her stunning State Theatre performance at the Sydney Festival in 2012. It was the show that had everyone talking, a riveting spectacle of an artist at her most inventive and emotive. Starkly lit and bereft of backdrops, her set drew deeply on her album ‘Let England Shake’, a glorious, at times brutal record dedicated to her homeland and the wars that have defined it. Its power was matched only by the praise it received, with the likes of NME, Los Angeles Times and The Guardian awarding it a perfect score. Backed by her impressive band including Mick Harvey, John Parish and Jean-Marc Butty, it’s a magnetic show with the soul siren channeling now classic works like ‘The Words That Maketh The Murder’ and ‘The Last English Rose’ alongside timeless cuts including ‘Down By The Water’, ‘C’mon Billy’ and ‘Angelene’. She’s a force of nature so prepare to be blown away!  
  • Live at The Forum, Melbourne. How best to describe this Australian guitar virtuoso? Perhaps we’ll just let others do it for us! Guitar World readers ranked his first album ‘Handmade Cities’ at number 5 in a poll of the 20 best guitar records of the 2010s. Steve Vai no less described him as “the future of exceptional guitar playing.” PROG Mind simply said (of his most recent album ‘Impulse Voices’ which it rated an astounding 9/10) “One thing about the guitar greats that always sticks out immediately is their ability to innovate and create a signature sound. Gilmour had it. Hackett had it. Hendrix had it. The list goes on. Plini has that same skill” and also described Plini’s music as both “melodic and beautiful”. We were lucky enough to capture this all too rare set from Plini when he was a special guest support at the Nothlane show earlier this year (recently released here on Moshcam). Dive in and get swept away.  
  • Live at the Roundhouse, Sydney. Rising metalcore crew Polaris formed back in 2012 when the founding members met at a high school ‘battle of the bands’ – and when Ryan Siew (on guitar) joined in 2013, he was just 15 (already an undeniable shred legend!) - so these guys are only getting started. Having released two killer albums already (both nominated for ARIA Awards) with another waiting in the wings, they’re currently touring at home and internationally in long overdue support (cheers COVID) of their 2020 album ‘The Death of Me’. Expect plenty of brutal cuts from that album, performed with an intensity that underlines the band’s pent-up frustration at having to sit on these monster tracks for two long years. Apart from the music itself, this is a visually stunning show in an epic sold-out venue – captured in all its glory earlier this year as part of our World Stage project. Check it out! (By the way, this is also the night we first witnessed Alpha Wolf, whose scorching headline Factory show is now available on Moshcam. Their crushing support set worked the crowd into an absolute frenzy before headliners Polaris took the stage)  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. With an Australian heavy-hitter line-up of Nick Allbrook, Shiny Joe, and Jay Watson (plus long time friend and occasional collaborator Kevin Parker), this stellar Australian outfit are giants in the psych/rock scene in Australia and internationally. Not surprisingly, we were over the moon when they jumped at the chance to be part of Moshcam’s World Stage Project earlier this year and we’re pleased to be able to offer you an exclusive, first ever live performance of Pond's ‘Human Touch’ - for free!!  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. Primus is an American rock band formed in 1984 and, when we captured this show in 2011, it was composed of vocalist and bassist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry “Ler” LaLonde, and drummer Jay Lane. Primus are characterized by their irreverent and often non-serious approach to music - on full display here!  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. Welcome to the Terrordome! Public Enemy, also known as PE, is an influential hip hop group from Long Island, New York, known for its politically charged lyrics, criticism of the media, and active interest in the concerns of the African American community. In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked Public Enemy number forty-four on its list of the Immortals. We captured this intimate show at the metro Theatre in Sydney during 2008.  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. "Punk is love!" PiL frontman John Lydon declared early and there was plenty of both present at Sydney's Enmore Theatre in 2013. It was PiL's first Australian tour in 20 years and devoted fans, young and old, flocked to see the iconic band's return. The new-look PiL didn't disappoint, channeling the best of their 2012 album 'This Is PiL' alongside immortal classics like 'Rise', '(This Is Not A) Love Song', 'Public Image' and Lydon's Leftfield collaboration 'Open Up'.  
  • Live at Southbank Centre, London. The music that The Raghu Dixit Project makes, is a true representation of today’s India. Ethnic and rooted at the core, but at the same time, global in its outlook. It’s not a surprise that Raghu has been referred to as one of India’s biggest cultural exports. Following an early move to Bangalore, the Bollywood-focused music industry initially failed to grasp his potent mix of folk, blues, rock, Sufi, funk, reggae, bhangra and Latin. However, he finally broke through and Raghu’s self-titled album became the biggest selling non-Bollywood record in India in 2009. This show, captured in London during 2012, is a revelation and shows that there’s a lot more to Indian music than Bollywood musicals.  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. It was 2014 and the first time the Chicago pop punk favourites had graced Australian shores, and we made sure we didn’t miss it. We weren’t disappointed! The band was touring off the back of some highly regarded EPs and just ahead of the release of their debut album. The band is still going strong although they now have a new vocalist (Cody Muraro) who replaced founding member Dan Lambton (who of course is featured here).  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. Redd Kross hit their stride in the 90s with the classic ‘Phaseshifter’ album – and then went on indefinite hiatus in the late 90s, not returning until the mid-2000s. Hoodoo Gurus seized on the opportunity to get the band to perform as part of the Gurus’ 30th anniversary ‘invitational’ in 2012 when this show was recorded.  
  • Live at the Sydney Entertainment Centre, Sydney. “Rock and roll will save yer soul – let it in!” Rose Tattoo frontman Angry Anderson proclaimed at the start of their Sydney show in 2012, like a pub rock preacher delivering a sermon. If that made the Sydney Entertainment Centre a temple, it was one built on pillars of searing rock ‘n’ roll, red-blooded riffs and chest-beating anthems delivered at maximum volume. Back from a lengthy hiatus to support their old mate Slash, the rock veterans rolled in like a well-oiled tank armed with their gutsy blues-laced riffs and Angry’s signature wail. With well worn hits like ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Outlaw’, ‘Bad Boy For Love’ and ‘We Can’t Be Beaten’, you’ll need to turn up your speakers to get the full ‘Tatts experience! Get ready to relive one helluva rock ‘n’ roll ride.  
  • Live at Oxford Art Factory, Sydney. We were lucky enough to capture this intimate show in Sydney in 2014 around the time of their first, self-titled album which debuted at Number 1 on the UK charts. When you hear them perform, right from the primal crunchy grooves of ‘Come Of Over’ to riff-heavy ‘Out Of The Black’ and stomping second single ‘Little Monster’, it’s hard to understand how such a ferocious sound comes from such a minimal line-up. Needless to say we were left speechless after this gig, and no doubt you will be too.  
  • Live at Metro Theatre, Sydney. Royal Crown Revue formed in 1989 in Los Angeles, California. They are often credited with starting the Swing Revival movement. The band’s musical style, however, transcends the pigeon-hole label that was given to them as a swing band (most noticeable in their rendition of Neil Diamond’s “Solitary Man”). We captured them in Sydney during 2009  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. They were already one of the hottest acts in the world right when we filmed these highlights at their sold-out Sydney show in 2013. Turbo-charging UK soul with surging drum 'n' bass, Rudimental's nine-piece live outfit turned Sydney's Enmore Theatre into a triumphant dance party. When the beat drops on euphoric anthems like ‘Not Giving In’ and ‘Feel The Love’ the crowd explodes into action. It’s truly exhilarating stuff.
