Listen & Slam

Filed under: Live Music Venues, General — site admin @ 8:19 pm

The music community takes the lead on combating sexual harassment as LISTEN & SLAM present policy guidelines at first meeting of
the sexual harassment task force.
Victoria’s music community has taken the bold step of tackling a social issue that affects every aspect of Australian life: sexual assault and harassment. A new task force will pilot programs in licensed music venues to create safer evenings out for music fans, performers and staff. It’s hoped that by taking this lead within the music scene, the broader industry will join the initiative.
Members of the LISTEN collective – a group committed to healthy discourse in music – and music advocacy group SLAM (Save Live Australia’s Music) have joined forces to work with the Victorian Government. Over the past four months, LISTEN and SLAM have been working on developing policy surrounding the reporting of incidents of sexual assault and harassment in licensed venues.

In July 2015, the Minister for Gaming & Liquor Regulation Jane Garrett announced the newly convened sexual harassment taskforce, the first of its kind in Australia, to address issues surrounding sexual assault and harassment in licensed venues and music festivals.

The new task force comprises representatives from the Live Music Roundtable, as well as LISTEN representatives Katie Pearson, independent academic Dr Bianca Fileborn, and Helen Marcou of SLAM. The taskforce is endorsed by Creative Industries Minister Martin Foley, who has dedicated a representative from his department to the task force.
At the inaugural meeting on Wednesday September 2, LISTEN and SLAM presented the draft Terms of Reference, which were positively received by the task force. This will help inform policy addressing sexual assault and sexual harassment with the goal to creating safer spaces for patrons, performers and staff in licensed music venues and festivals.
The task force is due to meet again in early October to consider the next steps of action.

Koral & The Goodbye Horses announce NOCTURNES EP tour

Filed under: rock music, CD Launches, Gigs, Tours — site admin @ 8:11 pm

Koral & The Goodbye Horses announce NOCTURNES EP tour.
This September and October, Adelaide five-piece Koral & The Goodbye Horses hit the road in support of their debut EP – Nocturnes.
With this release already receiving critical acclaim and national airplay, the Nocturnes Tour takes the band to Melbourne, regional Victoria, Adelaide and finally to Sydney for two shows with some very special, soon to be announced guests.
Nocturnes is the soundtrack to long nights spent on the open road, traveling heavy with heartbreak as you leave everything behind.
Throughout the record, Koral’s haunting vocals shift between twisted lullaby to world-weary rage, with spacious guitars and driving drumbeats providing an atmospheric backdrop. It’s grown up rock that’s raw, honest and a little screwed up.
“Like PJ Harvey fronting the Bad Seeds, Koral & The Goodbye Horses explore brooding, sweetly menacing landscapes on debut EP Nocturnes.” – Rip It Up

After a youth spent listening to the crackling fuzz of Australian AM radio, her mother’s car was Koral’s first musical education: Gershwin, Elvis, The Beatles, Mama Cass and The Shirelles rang out on the long drives across the country. From a young age, music lessons were a disaster. Piano, recorder, flute and violin all falling away when her teachers caught on that she was cheating at her theory practice and only playing by ear. Equally influential is Koral’s band. Just as Nick Cave has his Bad Seeds, Koral has her Goodbye Horses – Sam Knight (drums), Aaron Nash (keys), Emily Retsas (bass) and now Django Rowe (guitar) – all of whom thrive on Koral’s signature sound.
“… the debut single from the Adelaide group is brooding, gorgeously layered and offers a great look into what’s still to come.” – The AU Review
