Gig pick of the week

This week's Little Hero excursion took us to the intimate surrounds of The Coachman Russian restaurant in Surry Hills to witness the strikingly distinguished and increasingly prominent Kirin J. Callinan record his debut solo album live.

Having played with The Lost Valentinos, Mercy Arms, Fashion Launches Rocket Launches and Jack Ladder, Kirin is what you might call an adaptable artist. Pushing the boundaries of traditional instrumentation through his use of effect pedals and sound in general, he really lived up to his trademark statement: "offer me a gig, I'll give you a performance".

Beautiful, stirring and undeniable - Little Hero's gig pick of the week.

Pop Crimes

Rowland S. Howard, the legend of Australian rock whose distinctive style and sound has resonated across the underground rock landscape for decades, played a special performance at Sydney's Oxford Arts Factory last night celebrating the release of his new album Pop Crimes.

Overpowering and soaked in a fantastic nonchalant attitude, his songs brought together his own unique brand of stripped down music, and we loved it!

Check out his new album Pop Crimes, out now via Liberation.
