Pig City: This Perfect Day

Last Saturday was the Pig City Festival at University of Queensland. When I moved to Brisbane a couple years ago someone recommended the book to me and not knowing anything about the city it was a bit of an eye-opener to find out what a mess the place was in until fairly recently. It was a really fun day, with nary an asymmetrical haircut in sight, and really great to see all the bands that are included in the book and finally find out what half of them sounded like (although have since found out most of them have myspace pages…).

Highlights were Ups and Downs, Regurgitator and The Apartments (who I also saw play a fantastic gig recently at The Troubadour with Texas Tea supporting). The reformed Saints were good but I think that the Mess and Noise review was a fair reflection on their set. Thought Ed Kuepper’s playing was great though.

Some photos below and lots, lots more here.
