Cub Scouts


Cub Scouts are a Brisbane band doing good things. They play indie pop and I like what they are doing. Expect the band to be a house hold name real soon. So read on and find out what the band had to say.

1.Are you surprised how things have gone for you so far?

Extremely surprised. We’re very lucky to have received so much support from so many people.

2 What was the inspiration for the new EP?

The EP was inspired by lots of things; mostly people I’ve been inspired to write about, whether that’s a nice thing or not. Also, my dog Evie was an inspiration.

3. Are you happy how radio and media has gotten behind the band?

Yeah absolutely. We’re so thankful for how much support we’ve received.

4. How does having a booking agent help the band?

It means that we don’t have to organize booking shows for our tours and shows. We’re self-managed, so having a booking agent helps to make being self-managed manageable.

5. How do you guys warm up for a show?

We usually have dinner together, but no real rituals.

6. What’s the bands drink of choice?

Mostly beer/cider. Andy doesn’t mind a shandy~

7.Who have you enjoying playing with?

Ball Park Music and Loon Lake were both great to tour with. We’re currently touring with Phebe Starr which is so good, I don’t think I could ever get sick of watching her set!

8. If you put the ultimate festival together who would be on the bill?

Beyonce and us together

9. What inspires the band when writing songs?

I’m inspired by things that make me happy/sad and things that I find funny. I’m not a very confrontational person, so I usually just let it out in my songs haha

10. If you do a duet with anybody who would it be?

Beyonce or Lana Del Rey <3

11. What would be find on your stereo at the moment?

Ball Park Music – Museum

album due via Life To Live Records / tour planned for December

Following the release of their highly acclaimed debut EP, Danger Zone, South Florida’s LOSIN’ IT are gearing up for the world to hear their first proper full length.  Entitled No Apology and being released via Life To Live Records on January 1st, 2013, the album marks a decidedly more focused approach, delivering no frills, unapologetic hardcore just as the title might suggest.  Both musically and lyrically, LOSIN’ IT make it clear they aren’t concerned with the popularity contests and hype-centric discussions all too common today, instead choosing to do what they want, how they want.

In anticipation of their forthcoming album, LOSIN’ IT have planned a tour of the Southeastern U.S. alongside fellow Floridians Super Mutant.  Kicking off the tour will be a record release show for No Apology, being held in Pembroke Pines, FL on December 23rd alongside many other up-and-coming Florida hardcore bands (details below).

I’m a huge fan of Katy Lozano here on the site. Think she is an extremely attractive women. She is a classic all natural beauty and one of the most beautiful i’ve seen in years. That is why she is beauty of the week on the site.  She is a person that is switched on. Has an a degree in events, she has been in video clips and even on a tv show or two. This classic all natural beauty is going places, and I will keep supporting her.  Oh and any one who loves Aerosmith is a winner be too.

“A day where the whole country stops for live music”

After a huge debut year this year, SLAM DAY is back! Registrations are now open for 2013.


On Saturday February 23rd 2013 musicians and music lovers will come together in the largest simultaneous celebration of Live Music and Small Gigs that’s ever been held in Australia, for the second annual SLAM Day.


On February 23rd last year, over 150 gigs were held in small venues across the country from Perth to Port Douglas, Tamworth to Tennant Creek, Katherine to Kensington and with the support of musicians, venues, music fans and the media, the first ever SLAM Day was a massive success.


In 2013 SLAM Day falls on a Saturday – ‘gig day’, and already SLAM have been swamped with registration enquiries. It’s a race between the states to host the largest SLAM day, with WA and NSW ahead of the race, challenging Victoria as Australia’s home of live music.

Support a SLAM Day gig in your town – any style, any genre. Small gigs can happen in your backyard, in a venue, in your community hall, in a cafe, on the street or in the park.

It’s easy to get involved and free to register, just head to

“Seeing a loud sweaty band in a small venue is easily my favourite musical experience. Everyone crammed in tightly, shoulder to shoulder, singing the same lyrics, bobbing their heads, in unison, sharing that common experience, that’s what music is all about.” Nik Kaloper, The Jezabels.

About SLAM

SLAM (Save Live Australia’s Music)
was born out of the SLAM rally, the largest cultural protest in Australia’s history. 20,000 people marched in Melbourne to change government policy that incorrectly linked live music to violence.

The inaugural National SLAM Day was held on February 23rd this year, on the anniversary of the SLAM rally. SLAM Day is a campaign aimed at the broader community as an event that celebrates our local musicians and our small gigs. SLAM Day was embraced all around the country with thousands of musicians and tens of thousands of punters getting involved.

Since then, SLAM has successfully lobbied and contributed to:

· Change the law in Victoria; live music is now recognized in the objects of The Liquor Licensing Act
· Break the policy link between live music and violence in Victoria
· Initiate the Premier’s Round Table for Live Music in Victoria. Outcomes from the roundtable include the reform of planning policy and licensing law in relation to all ages gigs, and cutting red tape.
· A new Live Music Strategy and Lord Mayors Advisory Panel in the City of Melbourne
· Live Music taskforces in City of Yarra and City of Port Phillip

Live music is now firmly on the political agenda, with:

· A National call for candidates to have a Live Music Policy at all State and Council elections
· In NSW, the City of Sydney prepares to launch a Live Music taskforce
· In SA, the state government sent a delegation and met with SLAM representatives and have since announced and passed new small bar laws, a live music hub, a Live Music ‘Thinker in Residence’ and an Action Plan for the City of Adelaide
· Federally, a new Live Music Coordinator has finally been appointed.
