Splendour In The Grass 2009 – Sunday Quick Round-Up

Sunday doesn’t exactly go to plan, with the slow editing and general Sunday morning sluggishness meaning I manage to miss both Danananananakroyd and Jack Ladder and despite aiming to get onto site to photograph White Lies, the traffic means I miss half of their set. So the day starts at a more leisurely starting time […]

Splendour In The Grass 2009 – Belated Saturday Quick Round-Up

DZ @ The Troubadour

Red Riders + The Cairos + Ruby Tigers @ The Globe

They were amongst the first bands I saw after moving to Sydney, when they supported theredsunband at @Newtown in September 2004, with Matt emailing me after I uploaded the photos to a certain Australian music website to say that he loved the photos and since then […]
