Soundwave 2014 @ RNA Showgrounds, 22.02.2014: The Quick Round-Up

Although Soundwave was the third festival of the year, it’s the first one this year that I’ve managed to write a quick post for. Although time is always short to get something written and posted up quickly, phone problems have meant that I didn’t have any GPS data to write about for Big Day Out […]

Refused + Nuclear Summer @ Eaton Hills Hotel, 11.11.2012

After a first visit to The Crowbar the night before, tonight makes it two new venues in two nights. Although the Eaton Hills Hotel has been putting on shows for a while now, maybe a year, I was always flummoxed by what this place was and why so many larger bands were playing shows in […]

Big Day Out @ Gold Coast Parklands, 23.01.2011: Part 4

Originally I had no plans to go and see Wolfmother, but as there’s a small gap in my schedule before I need to head off to Iggy & The Stooges, the band I most want to photograph today, I decide to take a detour via the Green Stage. As I’m sure I’ve written several times […]

Big Day Out @ Gold Coast Parklands, 23.01.2011: Part 3

I only know about Plan B through the UK media as he seems to be huge back home. Calling himself Plan B I just assumed he was a rap act as it’s the sort of name rap acts have. It’s a real surprise when he turns out to be a white soul singer playing plastic […]

Big Day Out @ Gold Coast Parklands, 23.01.2011: Part 2

I don’t know anything about Jim Jones Revue but find myself really enjoying them. Then I spoil it all by going to photograph Airbourne. Having commented on a post on Collapse Board recently about the derivative state of so much Australian music, Airbourne are another classic example, being a photocopy of AC/DC. Although I knew […]

Big Day Out @ Gold Coast Parklands, 23.01.2011: Part 1

It finally happened.  At the seventh attempt I finally got put in and accredited to photograph Big Day Out.  There had been a few years in the previous six that had acts that I really wanted to photograph and which I was disappointed not to have gotten.  Most of those years I just bought a […]

OFWGKTA @ The Hi-Fi, 05.06.2011

From Kylie on Friday night to OFWGKTA on Sunday night. Odd Future have been one of the more interesting phenomenons in 2011. They’ve gone from me having never heard of them, first seeing their name on the Vivid Live bill, and suddenly being everywhere. And despite all that I wouldn’t be able to hum you […]

Smashing Pumpkins @ The Tivoli, 17.10.2010

Once upon a time Smashing Pumpkins were one of my favourite bands.  I first got into them when they released the 4-track Lull EP (featuring Rhinoceros, Blue, Slunk and Bye June) which was released in the UK before Gish came out. I saw them when they were touring the EP at The Riverside in Newcastle, […]

Soundwave 2011 @ RNA Showgrounds, 26.02.2011: Part 2

Although the day had ended triumphantly with Iron Maiden’s headline set, the beginning of the day gets off to a much more inauspicious start. I get to the front of the queue at the Guest Tickets booth to pick up my photo pass only to find it’s just a green paper wristband with “Photo” written […]

Good Vibrations @ Gold Coast Parklands, 19.02.2011 – Part 2

As the day goes by, the numbers at Parklands increase to a respectable number, and there’s a decent number at each of the stages.  I’ve never seen some many shirt-off bogans and chest tattoos in all my life though. Highlight of the second half of the day is Kelis, who, as with Erykah Badu, has […]

Good Vibrations @ Gold Coast Parklands, 19.02.2011 – Part 1

It’s Saturday morning and if there’s one place I don’t want to be today it’s Good Vibrations.  I mean I did, once, when I said I’d head down to the Gold Coast for the day and photograph it, but that was when the two main drawcards (for me at least) – Janelle Monae and Cee […]

Powderfinger + Jet + You Am I @ The Riverstage, 13.11.2010

In a way I’ve already summarised Powderfinger’s last ever show in the post about the Vegas Kings’ last show, which took place later that same night. On one side of Brisbane, down by the river, Powderfinger are playing the final show of their illustrious 20 year career. Surprisingly, given the demand, that is the fourth show […]

Soundwave 2010 – Quick Round Up – Part 1

I photographed Soundwave in Brisbane last weekend.  It was very much a last minute thing and at the start of the week I wasn’t expecting to be photographing, as much as I wanted to do it.  I will probably get around to blogging in a bit more detail sometime but it was a bit of […]
