I wonder if The Lifted Brow, one of Australia’s most exciting literary journals, knew they were hosting an open music showcase when they planned their Electric Palace event this Thursday in Brisbane?

Melbournian pop-prince Talkshow Boy (MySpace, CC case studies wiki), purveyor of “complicated electronic new pop songs” and proprietor of the open music microlabel Pocketclock, releases his entire discography under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.0 Generic licence. Brisbane local support Joel Saunders (MySpace, Archive.org) (performing with Crazy Hearse) also makes his music available for reuse; his album Think Not On me is on Archive.org under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.1 Australia licence. And hey, two out of three ain’t bad, right?
