It’s that time of year that the always enjoyable St. Jerome's Laneway Festival rolls its way through New Zealand and Australia, and even making it over to Singapore this time ’round. A cool crowd, delicious food, quenching refreshments, rad art installations and cracking acts are always a guarantee, and 2013 has followed in casually dressed suit.
Highlights came from the interstellar, cosmic trippers Pond, who belted out a wild set at the aptly titled Eat Your Own Ears Stage – don’t forget to plug up, punters. Other standouts artists included the smooth, subdued sounds of Alt-J, ferocious two-piece shredding from rock ’n rollers Japandroids, and the floating tunes of Melbourne pop-stoners, Twerps.
Laneway is hitting Adelaide this Friday, February 8, and Perth the following day on Saturday, February 9. Get your tickets here, and don’t miss out.
Of Monsters and Men.

Pond get gnarly.
In proper fashion.
Twerps bring it home.
