The surviving members of HTRK, Jonnine Standish and Nigel Yang, took to the Hi Fi to launch their latest offering, Psychic 9-5 Club.


Melbourne rapper Illy kicked off his National Cinematic tour in his home town of Melbourne. Friday saw the first of a two night stint at The Hi-Fi, and the local boy didn’t disappoint.

Savages (UK)

Fighting their way through more smoke than a Snoop Dogg Christmas party, Savages gave Melbourne their own show ahead of a series of Laneway Festival dates.

Jagwar Ma

Coming off a huge 2013, Sydney 3 piece Jagwar Ma showed no signs of slowing down with a stellar performance at Melbourne’s Hi Fi.

Yeasayer (USA)

In town for the Laneway Festival, Brooklyn based Yeasayer go the stage at the Hi-Fi to themselves in front of a near capacity midweek audience.


The twinkle of glitter threatened to overtake the Hi-Fi‘s trademark “Red Lights Only” policy as Montero gave us, well, pretty much everything in a 30 min set opening up for Yeasayer.


It was like being back at Uni again as Quan and Ben tore through Regurgitator‘s Tu-Plang and Unit double header at the Hi-Fi Bar.

Senyawa (Indonesia)

Indonesian duo Senyawa deliver a set the like of which The Hi-Fi probably hasn’t seen before (OK, save for the previous night). Rully Shabara and Wukir Suryadi give us half an hour of avante-garde mayhem – at time confusing, at others simply cacophonic –  but rarely dull.

School of Seven Bells (USA)

Three have become two but somehow it still adds up to seven.
