Sydney-based hip hop artist and producer Chance Waters is tidying up from an exhausting and exciting 2012, and while his second album Infinity was only released late last year, he knows he needs to take full advantage of the successes he’s enjoyed so far. After moving on from Phatchance, the name under which he released his debut album, his music has evolved and his place in the Australian music scene seems a lot more certain.
Marcel Everett – boy wonder behind xxyyxx – is still too young to get into bars and clubs even in Australia, let alone back in the States. But rather than using his older brother’s ID or pashing a bouncer, he gets into clubs by being the headline act.
Georgia Potter is a study in contrasts – for one thing, she’s a self-described “ridiculously petite white girl from Brisbane” who was born and grew up in a remote Indigenous community in Far North Queensland. She cut her musical teeth in the indie/art rock/hip hop collective Laneous & The Family Yah, but she has a new release under her own name – electronic alt-pop single ‘Reckless’.

The Wau Wau Sisters are two of the most badass burlesque performers out there – patrons who turned up to their performance at the Brisbane Festival last year had to walk through metal detectors because a threat had been made against the Sisters. Might have been from a hardcore Christian group; might have had something to do with their Last Supper sketch involving a two-headed female Jesus; might also have had something to do with all the nudity and sex and swearing and whatnot. There are absolutely no holds barred in a Wau Wau show, so leave Grandma at home (or they’ll probably put her in the act). We managed to keep them from backflipping around their neon-pink sex dungeons long enough to answer a few questions about their show at The Standard this week.
