December 14, 2017 Mary Boukouvalas

Don’t be mistaken, Dallas Frasca is a band and not just named after the lead singer. Like Blondie and PJ Harvey that came before them, it is clear that namesake front woman Dallas and guitarist Jeff Curran are the driving force of the Melbourne based trio, which other members rotate.

The unconventional songwriters are two guitars, vocals and a beast behind the kit. They fit somewhere in between blues riffed The Black Keys, and the incredible full-throated wail of Janis Joplin. Having no bass, the drums are integral to the sonic massive-ness that fits in-between the mechanical style riffs, their songs are catchy, huge and you can feel the truth in their tales. […]

December 14, 2017 Mary Boukouvalas

It’s said that Christmas comes but once a year. And often – that’s enough for some. But someone – somewhere – has been very, very nice and Santa (in the form of Raised By Eagles’ Luke Sinclair wearing a dodgy red onesie and hat) has repaid both the favour and behaviour with the announcement of not one – but two – very special Raised By Eagles shows to help you celebrate Christmas in salubrious style and excellent company.
