4ZZZ’s 40th Birthday Party @ The Old Museum, 04.12.2015

We’re into the last month of the year and a run of shows that I’m calling Gigmas.  Thanks largely to all the Meredith sideshows happening in Brisbane, it’s a crazy nine shows in nine days, just like the good old days at Rave.  It makes such a refreshing change to get some festival sideshows, given […]

Blank Realm + Nite Fields + 100%, 05.09.2015

Nine months and more on, I realised that I’d completely missed to log this show or write any notes about it. It was the launch party for Blank Realm’s latest album and a good show from what I remember, with good supports too, although also the usual frustration of photographing Blank Realm in poorly lit […]

Blank Realm + Four Door + Lucy Cliche + Sewers + Thigh Master @ The Underdog, 08.02.2014

A last minute gig and the excitement of being asked by The Guardian slightly tempered by the thought of a late show. I know that if I were to go back through the This Is Not A Photo Opportunity archives, the most common themes from the last eight years would be lighting, contracts and late […]

Blues Control + Blank Realm @ Black Bear Lodge, 10.10.2012

All work and no play.  Sometimes you need to be incentivised to work late into the evening,  knowing that the light at the end of the tunnel (even if it only a short-term, one single evening reward) is heading straight from the office to a show, a well earnt drink and some bands. A $10 show for […]

Frankly! It’s A Pop Festival @ Brisbane Powerhouse, 04.09.2011

Another year, another Frankly! and, like last year, another Frankly where I didn’t keep any notes or write any tweets of what happened during the day. Looking through my list of posts yet to be written, a sizeable chunk of them are festivals, and this is normally true at any time.  Photographing festivals is hard […]

Kurt Vile & The Violators + Blank Realm + Kellie Lloyd @ Woodland, 08.12.2011

The afternoon doesn’t get off to the best of starts when the set times are tweeted: Kellie Lloyd at 9:15pm, Blank Realm at 10:15pm and Kurt Vile at 11:15pm. It brings a quick tweeted response of my darkened mood. It’s a Thursday night, I have work to go to tomorrow and I do not want […]

Flavours Of Scuzz @ Woodland, 09.07.2011

The Bands: A+ On paper it was an unbelievably good looking line-up but if there’s one thing that always elevates gigs and festivals it’s coming away having seen/heard/experienced some bands that you’ve never seen before but which you really want to see again and hope that they come back to Brisbane soon. There might have only […]

Deadshits #1 @ Woodland, 05.11.2010

I didn’t write down any notes from this night, which is a shame as the specifics of the night, as experienced by me at least, have been lost to the ages. It was a good night all around though, and I do remember Blank Realm being fairly outstanding; they’re definitely one of Brisbane’s best bands […]

Batrider + Kitchen’s Floor + Blank Realm @ Rosies, 20-05-2010

Something from the hard drive archives.  I didn’t write any notes the following day so musically can’t tell you much about the night, other than Batrider had a much different line up from the last time I’d seen them at The Troubadour, with only singer Sarah Chadwick remaining.  The one residing memory from the night […]
