Live Concerts

  • In June 2013, three of Australia’s most exciting bands teamed up for a wild indie pop party, spearheaded by the band that was then one of country’s coolest new kids on the block, San Cisco, and we were lucky enough to capture it. Riding high on a wave of success – constant radio play, overseas record deals, gushing press – the Perth foursome celebrated with a fun-fueled show, which boasted polished pop gems, an impromptu birthday party and their now-famous cover of Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’. Support on the night came in the form of spirited sets from Chaos Chaos and Millions, and we’ll bring you those other sets soon.  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. Steven Gene Wold, commonly known as Seasick Steve is an American bluesman, although he prefers to be called “a song and dance man”. He plays guitars (mostly personalised), and sings, usually about his early life living rough and doing casual work. We caught him in 2009  
  • Live at Sydney Festival, Sydney. The late, great Sharon Jones (and the fabulous Dap-Kings) seen here in 2009 performing as part of that year's Sydney Festival.  
  • Sia
    Live at Metro Theatre, Sydney. Described by Rolling Stone as having “a major Feist-style presence”, Sia Furler first rose to prominence as the vocalist for UK act Zero 7. Sia went on to define herself as a performer with a style and presence that is all her own through her striking solo live shows. And now of course she's a true global superstar. But before global fame, this stellar songwriter enchanted smaller but very full houses across the world with her cheerful humour and damn fine songs; many of which we were lucky enough to film at Sydney's Metro Theatre in this 2009 show.  
  • Live at the Sydney Entertainment Centre, Sydney. In 2012, the guitar legend Slash played a blistering show at the Sydney Entertainment Centre, and Moshcam was there to exclusively film every second of it. Aided and abetted by frontman Myles Kennedy and their band The Conspirators (guitarist Frank Sidoris, bassist Todd Kerns and drummer Brent Fitz), the iconic axeman delivered a searing set featuring Guns ‘N’ Roses classics like ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’, ‘Paradise City’ and ‘Nightrain’, Velvet Revolver’s choicest cuts ‘Sliver’ and ‘Fall To Pieces’ and stand-out Slash moments like ‘Halo’ and ‘You’re A Lie’ from his album ‘Apocalyptic Love’.  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. The enigmatic Jason Pierce (aka J. Spaceman) and his ever changing band of renown, captured here in 2009 at Sydney's Metro Theatre. Ladies and gentlemen, we are indeed floating in space.....  
  • Live at the Factory Theatre, Sydney. Few artists can command attentive listening quite the way roots-rock renegade Steve Earle can. Maybe it’s the authentic way he conveys the plight of the little guy through his politically charged lyrics, or perhaps it’s that his rustic vocals carry the familiar air of a close friend. Either way, when the bespectacled alt-country legend took to the stage at The Factory Theatre in 2012 armed with just his bouzouki and larger-than-life attitude, every ear in the place was in the palm of his hand right from the get-go. Planting himself by the microphone in front of a hushed crowd, Earle kicked off proceedings with the sprightly ‘Waitin’ For The Sky to Fall’. “Didn’t know that I was gonna live this long now, I am sitting on top Of The world,” he bellowed, and when you consider how the man has used up more lives than a three-legged cat and still seems so full of spirit, there is no reason he shouldn’t be. Similarly, Earle has never been one to lyrically shy from the environmental and political issues plaguing the world today, and rounded off his rhythmic sea-shanty ‘Gulf Of Mexico’- a song wouldn’t seem out-of-place somewhere on The Pogues’ back catalog – with his frank, honest opinion on the whole matter: “f*ck BP”. Earle rounded off the intimate evening of toe-tapping alt-country music and good ol’ fashioned storytelling with the sing-a-long charms of ‘Guitar Town’, but just as he left the stage to the sound of uproarious applause, he gave his crowd with one final bit of advice: “Be careful goin’ home… they’re out there!”  
  • Live at the Annandale Hotel, Sydney. Seven guys, seven different musical backgrounds, seven different personalities, one band, one unique and unmistakable voice. Formed in 2003 in New Jersey with the expectation that they would be ‘one (album) and done’, the band is still going strong today. With all their different influences, it’s hard to describe them with one label, but ska punk will probably do as shorthand. A slightly longer description would be one part rock, one part ska, with influences from latin, klezmer, folk, world, funk, jazz and classical thrown in - so yeah, probably redefining “ska” for most. This show from 2008 ably demonstrates why they’re still a wildly popular touring band today.  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. Anticipation was hanging heavily in the air at the Dig It Up! ‘invitational’ (organised by Hoodoo Gurus in 2012 to celebrate their 30th anniversary). Could the mysterious band billed mid-afternoon as Kids in Dust actually be the long lost Sunnyboys? Indeed it was – and we were there to film this historic return. For those who may not be familiar with them, Sunnyboys were (and are again!) an Australian post-punk, power pop band originally formed in Sydney at the dawn of the 1980s. Fronted by singer-songwriter, guitarist Jeremy Oxley, the band breathed some much needed freshness and vitality into the divergent Sydney scene. Sadly, a range of medical issues for Jeremy led to the untimely disintegration of the band in the mid-80s. But their reputation lived on during the ensuing decades and the crowd for this mid-afternoon set rivalled only the Gurus themselves for people per square metre (and the Gurus' killer set is also on Moshcam now – check it out). There was no way to be ‘alone with you’ that day!  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. Swervedriver, originally formed in the UK in the late 80s, were initially lumped in with various other “shoegaze” bands from the time although they were always much heavier and more varied than that tag suggested. As they developed, they somehow managed to meld elements of psychedelia, pop and indie rock into one great sound. They went on hiatus in 1998 (OK, they broke up!) before reforming in 2008 for a world tour, which kicked off with a performance at Coachella – not a bad first gig back! We caught them in Sydney a few years later in 2011 ahead of their release (in 2012) of their first new material in around 14 years.  
  • Live at the Oxford Art Factory, Sydney. Another very welcome addition to our World Stage series is Brisbane based Sasha McLeod, better known as Sycco (who you may have seen join the stage with The Jungle Giants in their earlier show in this series). Still very early in what is clearly going to be a stellar career, Sycco has already released a number of great songs which led, in part, to her picking up a nomination for Triple J Unearthed Artist of the Year in 2020. Earlier this year, she released her latest single “Superstar” to rave reviews and, naturally, that song is front and centre of this great show from March this year. This is one artist you’re going to hear a lot more of in coming years – and remember folks, you saw her here first!  
  • Live at the Hordern Pavilion, Sydney. Australian indie-pop at its finest, these guys are legends in the making. Still early in what we expect will be a stellar career, they’re driving down the same roads as bands like The Strokes and Vampire Weekend but carving their own distinctive and melodic path. We had the opportunity to film them as part of our World Stage series when they picked up the coveted support slot for Lime Cordiale on their recent Australian tour.  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. This Canadian multi-instrumentalist duo formed in the late 90s – although, let’s face it, it’s not like their meeting was just a happy accident - they’re twin sisters! Still going strong today with a new album in the works for late 2022, we captured this show back in 2009 in support of one of their great albums ‘The Con’.  
  • Live at Marrickville Bowlo, Sydney. On April the 27th, 2018, two days before the recording of their debut LP, The Church of Simultaneous Existence, Ed Kuepper & The Aints! played the unrecorded album in its entirety to a full house at Sydney’s Marrickville Bowls Club a/k/a The Bowlo. Moshcam was there to record it for posterity - and because it was a killer show! Recruiting like-minded players in Peter Oxley (Sunnyboys), Paul Larsen Loughhead (Celibate Rifles), plus jazzers Alister Spence and Eamon Dilworth, The Aints! played the songs that would become, for many, the album of the year.  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. With news that The Bravery has recently reformed after a decade or more on ‘hiatus’, we thought it was time to dig back into our catalogue and profile this great show from 2008. Formed in New York in 2003, they released three studio albums before packing their kit away in 2011. They charted on both sides of the Atlantic with their synthesis of indie rock and electronica. This show followed the release of their great second album ‘The Sun and The Moon’ which contained their gold status single ‘Believe’ featured in this show. Take it away fellas!  
  • Live at Metro Theatre, Sydney. The Bronx is an American hardcore punk band from Los Angeles formed in 2002. The band's lineup in 2009 when we captured this full tilt show consisted of vocalist Matt Caughthran, guitarists Joby J. Ford and Ken Horne, bass guitarist Brad Magers, and drummer Jorma Vik.
