Pretty excited to hear @sharonjones (#sydfest 13 & 09) is playing Sydney Town Hall next month

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings at Sydney Town Hall

Oztix Event Billions Australia is chuffed to announce that Sharon Jones is back – better than ever – and Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are coming back to Australia with the most monumental and explosive soul live show they have ever toured.Last year, Daptone Records had just announced the August release of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings’ Give the People What They Want album when Sharon Jones was diagnosed with cancer. The scheduled release and touring were immediately put on hold and all efforts were quickly shifted to her treatment and recovery. Thanks to an extremely gifted medical staff, several months of recovery and the infinite love and support from friends, family and fans, Sharon is back, and was ready to once again join her Dap-Kings as they share their music with people around the globe. “My fans are what kept me fighting, and kept me focused on getting better”, Jones says. “Everything I love can be summed up by the moment I get on stage, and start giving the people what they want. That’s real love. That’s real music.”The explosive new album came out to a frenzy of acclaim in early 2014 and now with the global touring schedule well underway it is clear that this tight and deep Daptone soul community from Brooklyn has bounced off this difficult time and come out closer and stronger and are delivering the most incredible shows of their illustrious career.For over a decade, the band has travelled the world, blowing minds with their explosive live performances and their raw, hand-crafted studio recordings. While other artists have ridden the crests and troughs of passing fads, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings have bypassed the hype-and-hit superhighway and taken a detour straight to the hearts and bodies of their listeners, transcending fleeting trends and demographics and delivering a visceral rhythm and soul sound to an ever-expanding base of deeply loyal fans. In short, people want great music played right and Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings are giving the people what they want! On this tour they’ll play some very special old school dancehall type shows in iconic theatres and town halls in major cities across the country where there’ll be some electrifying soul, deep dating and heavy gyrating on the dance floors with seats upstairs for those who like to watch. To make things even sweeter and to bring more heat to the dance floor the national tour will also feature Bollywood/Surf/Soul/Funk big band The Bombay Royale direct from Melbourne celebrating their new LP release “The Island of Dr Electrico” and right before the main act and with the aid of the Dap-Kings the debut Australian appearances for dynamic Dapettes soul duo Saun & Starr celebrating the release of their new 7” 45rpm single “Hot Shot b/w Gonna Make Time” out now on Daptone. Feel free to dress funky and/or formal and be ready to get down at each and every one of these shows.Hear the magic here and see it to believe it at the dates and venues belowSHARON JONES & THE DAP-KINGS “Stranger to my Happiness” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IlPE1rEdAdI SHARON JONES & THE DAP-KINGS “100 Days 100 Nights” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ouI5KcyHfE SAUN & STARR “Hot Shot” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dJygJf0w28 THE BOMBAY ROYALE “You Me Bullets Love” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhePjBKX2wA

The Gallery Pres. Coldharbour Records
Friday 20th June 2014
Ministry of Sound, 103 Gaunt St, Elephant and Castle, London, SE1 6DP, United Kingdom
With the marathon DJ sessions of Markus Schulz now entrenched into Gallery folklore, tonight welcomes these esteemed ambassadors for his Coldharbour Recordings imprint. Promising the dark and devilish sound on which our international resident has become famed, but executed by these future heroes of the scene.

Mentored by Markus since the fledgling stages of his career, KhoMha returns after last Julys critically acclaimed Gallery debut. Impressing that night with a tumultuous blend of trance, progressive and tech, his inimitable sound is one which cannot be pigeon holed. Hence why the KhoMha experience is so engaging, combining the driving aspects of all genres into one soul shaking package.

Whether under Push, Plastic Boy or tonights pseudonym of M.I.K.E., The Belgian superstars anthemic tracks have been responsible for The Gallerys most defining moments. The Legacy, Twixt and Sunrise At Palamos amongst others, M.I.K.E. is not one to rest on his laurels. A recent acquisition to the Coldharbour crew, sees his new label productions represent the darker side of tech-trance.

After a critically acclaimed Gallery debut last August, Beat Service has gone from strength to strength. This year saw the launch of new show Beat Service Radio, which is fast building a devoted fan base and the perfect platform to spread his chunky trance worldwide. Finally two debuts, affirming The Gallerys resolve to blood hot new talent. Mr.Pit will impress with his inimitable style, which featured on a recent flagship mix for the Coldharbour Sessions Podcast. The Venom One duo is sure to air new track Revolution, a collaboration with Markus which has been a regular request in all recent sets.

The Gallery and Coldharbour Recordings. Its going to be hot.

Unearth
2014-06-12
DNA lounge, 375 11th Street near Harrison in SoMa, San Francisco
Performing Live:

UNEARTH -- https://www.facebook.com/unearthofficial TEXAS IN JULY -- https://www.facebook.com/texasinjulyband CRUEL HAND -- https://www.facebook.com/cruelhand ARMED FOR APOCOLYPSE -- https://www.facebook.com/armedforapocalypse

With DJ:

Rob Metal

Unearth: Metalcore is a stubborn genre, and one that should never change. Luckily for tried and true death metal and metal core fans, we have Unearth to be its champion. For more than 15 years, Unearth has been staying true to the heavy metal genre that birthed them. Metal is their craft, and they do it with an attention to detail rivaled only by the dark brutality of their output. Part homage to legends like Pantera and At The Gates, part amendment to classic subgenres like Swedish death metal and early metalcore, and part uniquely Unearth, the band has never wavered in their grittiness, darkness, or their ability to excite the audience of headbangers (seriously, they've opened for metal legends Testament and easily held their own). Unearth features a death growling lead singer along with some stellar clean vocals and backing vocals from one of their two guitarists. They've got the low end down pat, solos galore, the soul of thrash metal egging them onwards, and enough stage antics for everyone. The band directly engages the audience (you will be sweated upon, front row) and leaps around the stage with wild abandon, antics that are true to the ethos of heavy metal, adding some levity to an already amped up live show. You get the feeling that these guys would be just as stoked to play someone's rowdy basement party as they would be opening up an arena festival -- they are genuine protectors of the faith (aka metal).

Texas In July: Emotional, earnest, raw, and truthful, Texas In July is a metalcore band from, you guessed it, Pennsylvania. Mixing soaring clean vocals reminiscent of emo-alternative rock of the early 2000s with guttural, growling lead vocals that shake your soul, Texas In July creates a moody yet fun blend of all things metalcore. Four boys decided to form Texas In July during their high school days and still have plenty of that youthful energy left to share with their fans. Constant touring has allowed these dudes to form a tight rapport and easy songwriting connection, despite a few line-up changes. Motifs such as transition, Christianity, and faith, mingle with the harder elements such as angry vocals, super powerful, forceful drumming, and in your face guitar. The band has got the technicality of the music down, both on record and throughout their aggressive live show, but also embraces groovin' out and jumping around on stage -- you can tell they're having fun and doing what they want to be doing. The crowd certainly picks up on the Texas In July attitude, and responds with unencumbered dancing. Every breakdown (and there are many) is a chance to jump up and waive your fists with glee.

Cruel Hand: From the tranquil wilderness of Portland, Maine, comes a decidedly un-tranquil band: Cruel Hand. Equal parts thrash, hardcore, and metal, Cruel Hand brings a devastating and brutal sound to every record and live show. The five piece haven't turned their back on fun, despite the deep heaviness of the music. Hair flies, sweat pours, and music pounds as Cruel Hand wails and growls. The band has played huge festival stages and small rooms with equal vigor - their energy, complete with rowdy stomping around stage and singing directly into the crowd, is big enough to capture any crowd. Dual guitars, excellent drumming, and lots of headbanging bring the audience some of the feeling from classic days of hardcore. Don't be surprised if their blend of thrashy hardcore inspires a mosh pit, just get out of the way.

Armed for Apocolypse: What exactly is Armed For The Apocalypse armed with? Heavy, heavy metal. You won't find any clean choruses or slightly happy tunes coming from this five piece from Chico, Ca. Hell, you'll only hear loud, aggressive, dark, and dangerous songs that rumble along at a dirge then switch to fast pace single chords and blast beats. Three guitars make for quite a heavy sound, especially when tuned down and pissed off. There's nothing more evil sounding than the growl emitted by Armed For The Apocalypse's singer -- as if he was calling some demons to his side. With dark lyrics and song titles that speak of demons, world ending, and, a personal favorite, "You Are Alive When They Start To Eat You," make no mistake: Armed For The Apocalypse is intensely, brutal, gory, and ready to explode your eardrums.

Timeline PhotosThe Sabian Symbol for the Sun is Leo 14: CHERUB-LIKE, A HUMAN SOUL WHISPERS INTO EVERY RECEPTIVE EAR, SEEKING TO MANIFEST

What is it that you are hearing? What are you letting into your consciousness? Are you receiving more and more messages from the outside world or perhaps, and more likely, from your intuitive mind? Are you 'hearing' things, or filtering out the noise?

This Symbol implies that at times in your life there will be deep realizations that may transform your life. Listening to one's inner voice and heeding its messages can lead you on to the next level of life. Spirit is descending, wishing to make it’s self known - spiritual messages are wanting to come through into conscious expression. The trick is being able to hear what’s being whispered and translating it into useful information as one can be mislead by ‘voices in their head’ which can be confusing rather than enlightening. The thing is to discern what is useful and what is not.

New realizations and impulses. Having your voice heard. Channeling. Contacting the other side. Whispering. Passing on news and information. Speaking and hearing.

The Caution: Confusing inner voice. Signs of instability or madness. Fearing if you’re not heard, you will miss out. The need to be noticed. Ranting and raving. Losing the plot.
