Exhaustion, Ooga Boogas – Morning Ritual, Copacabana, Fitzroy, VIC (2013-07-20)

This was the last of the Morning Ritual shows, an amazing showcase of some of the best music Melbourne has to offer. This date stood out as being particularly excellent – both Exhaustion and the Ooga Boogas played, in my opinion, some of the best sets of all the Morning Rituals that I went to. […]

Leather Towel, Pronto – Pronto Residency, The Tote, Collingwood, VIC (2013-07-17)

I’d been interested in catching one of the Pronto residency gigs since they started up – I’d heard a lot of really great things about the band and I was very keen to catch them live. I figured this show was probably best, as I’d get another chance to see the amazing Leather Towel. Batpiss […]

Assad, Home Travel – Monday Night Mass, Northcote Social Club, Northcote, VIC (2013-07-15)

This was a pretty weird Monday Night Mass. For both of the acts that I recorded, you really needed to be there in the room to get the proper experience. I’ll go into more detail under the individual artists, but both of these recordings only partially reflect what was going on at the time as […]

Eastlink, Nun – Morning Ritual, Copacabana, Fitzroy, VIC (2013-07-14)

I had to work again on the Saturday, so I missed Ausmuteants and Beaches (bummer), but I’m glad I was able to make it to this show because it was awesome. I’m taking next weekend off work – there’s no way I’m missing out on Ooga Boogas. Recorded from the same spot as last time […]

Fraser A Gorman, Hierophants, Dick Diver – The Barwon Club, Geelong, VIC (2013-07-12)

Wow, here’s a really, really, really good one. Three awesome sets, all with really great sound. I’d already been to two of the Dick Diver launch shows (the first one months ago at The Tote, and a week before at The Corner with Twerps and The Stevens), so I knew what to expect – they […]

The Stevens, Daylight Robbery, School Of Radiant Living – Tuesday Night Mass, The Northcote Social Club, Northcote, VIC (2013-07-09)

This show came about in a weird way – originally July 8th’s Monday Night Mass was supposed to be The Stevens, Daylight Robbery and The UV Race. Unfortunately there was a massive blackout all around Northcote, Thornbury and Brunswick an hour and a half before it was all set to start, and the gig had […]

Mad Nanna – A Movie And A Music, Bar Open, Fitzroy, VIC (2013-07-07)

As part of the Leaps and Bounds festival, Pat O’brien (of Mad Nanna and Sunshine & Grease fame) has been putting on shows every Sunday night upstairs at Bar Open consisting of a screening of a film followed by a live performance. This Mad Nanna show followed a screening of Half Japanese: The Band That […]
