Einstürzende Neubauten @ The Tivoli, 23.02.2013

Photos of Einstürzende Neubauten’s Brisbane show at The Tivoli on 23 February 2013


Soundwave 2013 @ RNA Showgrounds, Saturday 23 February 2013 – Part 3

Cancer Bats are yet another one of those Stage 4 bands that, a few weeks on, I have no clear recollection of. All the Stage 4 band have just all blended into one. Danko Jones fill some time between bands, although I don’t know anything about them. Band fatigue has well and truly set in […]


Soundwave 2013 @ RNA Showgrounds, Saturday 23 February 2013 – Part 2

Kyuss were another one of those bands that completely passed me by and I didn’t know much about them until I moved to Australia and found that they were really big in Newtown and their videos were always on the jukebox in the Sandringham. When the band come out, I’m trying to figure out if […]


Soundwave 2013 @ RNA Showgrounds, Saturday 23 February 2013 – Part 1

If there’s one constant to take away from every Soundwave, it’s that any plans to photograph the first couple of bands of the day always go straight out of the window as the photo passes are never ready to collect from the box office in time. It’s the same story every year. Looking back at […]


Blink 182 + The Vandals + Sharks @ RNA Showgrounds, 22.02.2013

Blink 182 play a rare Brisbane festival sideshow on the Friday night before Saturday’s Soundwave. The afternoon of the show takes an interesting turn on Twitter as Soundwave promoter, AJ Maddah, and Blink drummer, Travis Barker, become embroiled in a massive online spat that spans most of the afternoon. The crux of the argument is […]


Laneway 2013 @ RNA Showgrounds, Friday 1 February 2013 – Part 3

Jessie Ware is a quick in/out photo opportunity, less than a song and a half to rush back to the rest of Pond’s set. I only last that long as the lighting is rubbish and I wait until the second song to see if there’s any improvement. There’s only two of us in the photo […]


Laneway 2013 @ RNA Showgrounds, Friday 1 February 2013 – Part 2

The Rubens are easily the worst band of the day, a country mile out front, head and shoulders above everyone.  In fact they’re the worst band I’ve seen in a long, long time.  If you told me they were a high school band who had won a local competition to play at Laneway, I probably […]


Laneway 2013 @ RNA Showgrounds, Friday 1 February 2013 – Part 1

Laneway is usually one of the high points of the festival season (with the exception of last year’s rain affected shambles). It’s just about the only festival, if not the only festival, where you get to see some new bands and not the same-old, same-old festival fodder that all the other major festivals put on […]


Deadshits 4 – Woods + Hunx & His Punx + Black Realm vs Naked On The Vague + Kitchens Floor @ The Zoo, 25.01.2013

A very last minute arranged trip to The Zoo for the latest edition of Deadshits. Although I’d photographed Deadshits #1 and Deadshits #2, and taken a bunch of photos that I really like, I didn’t make it to #3.  Looking at a line-up that included Scott & Charlene’s Wedding, Absolute Boys, Angel Eyes, Kitchen’s Floor, […]


Big Day Out 2013 @ Gold Coast Parklands, 20.01.2013 – Part 3

When Crystal Castles played in the Boiler Room a couple of years ago, the experience of photographing them from the stage was cool.  It was nice to have that opportunity and to have a set of photos to provide some variety from the usual “up-nose”view festival photos (even if some photographers hogged the best positions […]


Big Day Out 2013 @ Gold Coast Parklands, 20.01.2013 – Part 2

The quickest way back to the media tent after a few songs of Jagwar Ma is through the photo pit.  Grinspoon are about to start so I make the most of the walk by taking a couple of photos in the first song.  Some might say it was a good walk spoiled. Death Grips are […]


Big Day Out 2013 @ Gold Coast Parklands, 20.01.2013 – Part 1

Back when I lived on the northside of Brisbane, the train journey down to Helensvale felt like it took forever. Now that I live on the southside, it takes a whole lot less time, the only downside being by the time the train gets to me, there’s standing room only.  Everyone on a train heading […]


Big Day Out 2013 @ Gold Coast Parklands, 20.01.2013 – The Very Belated Quick Round-Up

A couple of years ago I got back from a trip to the UK and a few hours later was out photographing a festival in the Botanic Gardens.  Unfortunately I had been en route and had missed the far superior line-up of the first day of Sunset Sounds but getting out of the house to […]


Soundwave 2013 on Film

I can remember saying when I got my first digital camera that I saw no reason to stop using my film camera and expected to keep using both cameras side-by-side.  For a while I did keep photographing gigs in film and digital but it didn’t last too long.  Since that time I’ve had rolls of random […]
