August Wrapup

August was a pretty busy month, my first full month working for The Wire, with a few other publications slotting in here and there. I was struck down by a pretty decent sized cold for a couple of weeks, but I soldiered on, and I think in some cases the cold&flu tablets and exhaustion worked in my favour!

The Armada, Fly By Night, 281108

The Armada, Fly By Night

Part 1 of the catch-up posts, with more pictures than words, cause after a month my memory’s a little foggy. After promising full band shows for as long as I can remember, Jeff Martin finally unveiled his new project The Armada to an eager crowd at the Fly By Night in Fremantle. Essentially they’re the Tea Party, but without the awesome songs. I’m sure they’ll come in time though.

I missed the musical supports for the evening, but got there in time to catch Beautiful Rose showing off her belly dancing skills. Hypnotic, mesmerising, and certainly something different as an intro to a rock band’s set.

Gyroscope @ Fly By Night 300708

Gyroscope, Fly By Night

Alright, so apparently I suck at taking breaks. All it took was one sms mentioning the magic ‘G-word’, and I was packing up my gear for what seemed like my millionth Gyroscope shoot in the last year. Support for the evening came from Calerway, a band I’ve been working with for as long as I can remember. Two bands that are definitely never a chore to shoot. This is a pretty picture-intensive post, I wouldn’t suggest tackling it with dial-up.



Kickin’ it old school

The other week, I did something novel. I paid for, and went to a show for fun. And doubly novel? Took my film camera along. (NB. I do quite often go to shows for fun, I’m not that jaded! Though often my ‘fun’ shows are friends’ bands and I don’t have to pay)

I hadn’t touched a film camera since photography class in high school (2001, for those interested), and I’d only recently become confident enough in my digital skills to take the whole game back to film. Jeff Martin’s show at the Fly By seemed a good starter. Guy sitting on a chair for the whole set, static lighting…easy right? Kinda.
