The best thing about the festival season (apart from the festivals themselves) are the intimate sideshows that pop up around town. It’s like Australia suddenly gets transported to Europe or America where great quality gigs with amazing international acts happen all the time.
One such act is UK duo La Roux. We compare her to a weird but brilliant combination of The Eurhythmics and Massive Attack. Both a style icon and intelligent performer, front woman Elly Jackson is like the anti-Gaga. See La Roux on the Parklife circuit, at sideshows in Melbourne and Sydney, or here in the great video for I’m Not Your Toy.
