Yay For St Js

Girl Talk. Stereolab. Architecture In Helsinki. The Hold Steady. The Drones. Cut Off Your Hands. Four Tet. Tame Impala. El Guincho. Buraka Som Sistema. Jay Reatard. The Temper Trap. No Age. The John Steel Singers. Canyons. Pivot. Port O'Brien. Holly Throsby. Born Ruffians. Mountains In The Sky. Tom Fite. Still Flyin'. Daeldelus. Oh, and more to be announced...

It could only be St. Jerome's Laneway Festival, which began over beers and has ended up pretty much the same way. Named after the incredible, unassumedly uber back alley bar that just happens to be my favourite Melbourne haunt, Laneway is ready to add a little spice to the Australian summer streetscape.

Catch it in Brisbane on Sat 31 Jan, Melbourne Sun 1 Feb, Perth Fri 6 Feb, Adelaide Sat 7 Feb and Sydney Sun 8 Feb.
