Rivers Edge Music Festival Schedule

The Rivers Edge Music Festival approaches, and they have finally released a schedule for the day, with Tool on stage at 8:45pm and playing for 1 hour and 15 minutes until 10:00pm. Presumably 10:00pm is some kind of noise curfew, and anything pre-8:45 is too light to do the stage show justice Either way, 75 minutes is about standard length for a headline set at a festival (here in Australia… Read More »Rivers Edge Music Festival Schedule

Tool & Dave Matthews Band to play Harriet Island Music Festival

In a post that makes me wonder if April Fools Day has come early, it’s alleged on a couple of websites that Tool and the Dave Matthews Band will be headlining the inaugural Harriet Island Music Festival in Minnesota. And here I go thinking Minnesota was an inland state! The festival apparently takes place on the 23rd and 24th of June with Tool to play on the 23rd. Not sure… Read More »Tool & Dave Matthews Band to play Harriet Island Music Festival

A Perfect Circle playing Lollapalooza

As I predicted a little while back, A Perfect Circle were today announced as part of the Lollapalooza lineup for 2011.  A Perfect Circle seem to be one of the second tier acts, and other bands joining them on the three day festival include Foo Fighters, Ween, Muse, Deftones, Death From Above 1979 and The Cars.  Overall it seems like a quite reasonable lineup, and much lighter on shitty metal… Read More »A Perfect Circle playing Lollapalooza

Soundwave 2010

I’ve been looking forward to Soundwave 2010 for quite a while now.  Not only were one of my favorite bands Faith No More reuniting, but it also featured several other favorites of mine, including Tool touring buddies Meshuggah and Isis.  Forecast for the day was originally in the high 30s, but thankfully this didn’t turn out to be the case – it was a beautiful Adelaide day in the end!… Read More »Soundwave 2010

Soundwave 2009

On Saturday my brother and I went along to the Adelaide leg of the Soundwave Festival.  After hearing a few complaints about excessive lines in Sydney I was a little apprehensive, though in the end there was no need to be.  Apart from the one time I went to get beer, there were virtually no lines at all. We arrived at the venue at about 1:30pm, and basically walked straight… Read More »Soundwave 2009

Slow News Week

Not much has happened this week, so here’s a few  Tool and non-Tool related items I noticed going on. The Puscifer store is either open, or opening very soon Jerome Arizona according to a post from Blair on Toolband.  Not doubt most of the merchandise available from the Puscifer online store can also be had there. Daily Grail are having a donation drive at the moment, and are offering a… Read More »Slow News Week

Soundwave Festival Lineup Announced

No Tool news here, but news that I’m sure will please many Tool fans: Nine Inch Nails have been announced as the headline act for next years Soundwave Festival.  This festival, which has a bigger emphasis on metal/hard rock/punk bands travels all around Australia this year and in my opinion is likely to have a much better lineup than the Big Day Out.   Many Fourtheye readers will probably agree… Read More »Soundwave Festival Lineup Announced
