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 […]

Velociraptor + The Good Sports + The Maryettas @ Black Bear Lodge, 24.04.2014

First published on Collapse Board The first rule of writing about Velociraptor is that you have reference how many people play in Velociraptor. The second rule of writing about Velocirpator is that when it comes to live reviews you have to mention what ‘mode’ Velociraptor are playing in for that particular show (i.e. how many […]

New York Dolls + Hits + Velociraptor @ The Hi-Fi, 13.10.2011

I got to see the New York Dolls a couple of time back in 2007 when I went to both the Sydney and Gold Coast V Festivals. When you get to see a band a couple times in quick succession, you realise just how planned and rehearsed everything is, from the same set lists in […]

Thousand In Twenty – Rave Magazine’s 1,000th Edition Party @ The Zoo, 15.07.2011

I’ve been photographing for Rave since 2006, 15 September 2006 to be exact, when I covered that year’s three night Valley Fiesta for them. I started photographing for Rave through a combination of good luck, being recommended by one of the magazines writers and being available and willing to cover an event that none of […]

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 […]

Valley Fiesta 2010, Brunswick Street Mall, 11.09.2010

Valley Fiesta passed through Brisbane for another year only a few weeks back [or at least it did when I wrote this post].  As I was working at the office over the weekend, I popped across after I was done there, first to see the Ben Salter/Kate Jacobson duo, Gonesville, at Black Bear Lodge, before […]

Stature::Statue + Velociraptor + Dune Rats + Horse Fight + Tape/Off @ The Zoo, 28.04.2011

It’s the launch night for Stature::Statue’s debut album but also their last show.  It seems to happen a lot in Brisbane that bands either make an album and either call it a day soon after (as recently done by The Rocketsmiths) or get most of the way through recording and don’t even get around to […]

Velociraptor @ The Club House, 18-09-10

First published on Collapse Board (21/09/2010). The band that could well be Brisbane’s Next Big Thing, Velociraptor, are launching their début 7″ at The Club House tonight. Except manufacturing delays mean the vinyl isn’t ready so CDs are available with a voucher to exchange it when the records turn up. It was a shame that a prior engagement with […]

Paddington Fair @ Neal Macrossan Park, Paddington 05-06-10

Spent the afternoon at Paddington Fair, ate too many hot dogs and churros, drank too much Solo, sat on the grass and took a few quick photos of some of the bands with the camera that I had dragged along with me. Gentle Ben & His Sensitive Side Pineapples From The Dawn Of Time Velociraptor Lion […]

The Thin Kids + Velociraptor @ The Troubadour 24-02-10

Tonight is the full debut of Everett True’s latest musical collaboration, The Thin Kids, after a guest spot during The Legend!‘s support set at the recent Cribs show at The Zoo.  I caught the very end of it but with not enough time to photograph it. How you take tonight very much influences your verdict on proceedings and […]

Velociraptor @ Browning Street Studios, 06-02-10

I think tonight is supposed to be an all ages show but it seems more like the old school BYO shows that you used to get at 610 as dressed-up scenesters teenagers show their real class by drinking wine straight from the bottle. Playing as a 9-piece tonight, Velociraptor take up more than half the […]
