The absolute in Graff and Street Culture showcase hits town this weekend.

Hosted by Acclaim Magazine, this primo event promises relentless insight and privledge to those that fork out for the rather outlandish ticket prices. However, it is also set to offer unprecedented access to all your favourite street art and associated customary endeavours.
Be sure to catch a glimpse, even just for a day -and we‘ll be there to check some of the action if you cannot.
Check it fo‘reals: This weekend, April 29th ‘til May 1st at Federation Square.
The Overlord MC Supremo of Stone‘s Throw Records MF Doom did eventually grace the front room stage at The Espy some 2 weeks ago; after suffering from an unknown ailment across the seas in New Zealand.
And what a show it was! The gig recorded a sell-out crowd, with punters elbowing their way amongst each other in order to catch a glimpse of our masked MC hero. The set featured a great list of tracks including Figaro, Sofa King, America‘s Most Blunted and many more -including 2 encores that sent the crowd nuts.
I‘m sure all of those heads that attended thought it a great show, from which is compiled the featured video of “People, Places, And Things LIVE” -courtesy of yours truly. Enjoy.
This band heralds the mother of all Epic Rock: personified by seven sweaty, medieval-clad musicians. Emblazoning the stage with their dress; each wearing a unique style depicting dark ages stereotypes including a celt, viking, vandal, grim reaper etc; as they behold powers of flame, life and death: before your very eyes.
Myles Tauchert and Frankie Gionfriddo front the stage as a pair of marauding behemoths of legendary proportions. Their sacraficial publicity campaign notes that the Barbariön ”stage show combines historically inaccurate, sexually ambiguous, highly flammable costumes with hastily assembled pyrotechnics in confined spaces, along with ‘carefully’ choreographed guitar moves and plenty of exposed flesh. There is rarely a dull moment. Furthermore, we hold the mantle of the heaviest band in Melbourne with a combined weight of nearly 1500lbs!” -all volume of which will muscle in on any crowd, as Richard Kelly unleashes his relentless death-drum mantra.
These axe-wielding metal maniacs this year went pillaging on an East Coast Big Day Out tour and only this weekend do they release their big-budget cinematic video film clip triumph for their smashing single My Rock.
This clip is destined to rock your world -check it out:
