when i headed to Brisbane for Big Sound i filmed an episode of Balcony TV Melbourne.
after an awkward first take and a minor argument between the singer and i this is the final take and it’s lovely and beautiful sounds!
So I did Big Sound, well attempted to but due to get the flu on the first night and having to keep it low key it wasn’t the Big Sound everyone else was having.
I missed the forums yesterday as I was sick in bed, thankfully Robyn looked after me well.
I managed to catch some bands last night and make some meetings.
Gossling; she’s cute but sickly cute. Her baby voice got to me and I went across the road to see
Tiny Ruins; who is a subtle in her appearance but such a strong voice with heartfelt songs! She’s like a jeff Buckley.
Then I headed to see a personal favourite of mine Boy In A Box; they played as a 3 piece to a packed audience and it was disappointing. They sounded empty and weak and looked nervous and awkward, saying that word is their management loved it as a 3 piece, my thoughts were oh shit this is the end!
Split Seconds; I’ve been wanting to see since I interviewed them for Balcony TV.
They were so different to what I’d expected! So powerful and energetic unlike the way they sound recorded!
Next was WIM. They were the feature album on SYN and I loved what id heard.
That afternoon I filmed an episode of Balcony TV Brisbane and the band I interviewed was WIM. Out of all the interviews I had done it was defiantly the most weird experience, I will explore that in another post but I promised them I’d see them, it was amazing and beautiful and I hope it’s not the last time I see them!
Last for the night was Jinja Safari, although by then I was exhausted and left after one song, but it was as I’d expected.
Now I’m on the skybus to the train station to go to work. They person next to me is pretty much ontop of me.
You know what this means?
I’m in Brisvegas!!
It’s late and I’m tired and an old lady is telling me about the days when Kensington smelt like cow poo and she liked it.
big sound starts tomorrow and I’m half excited half exhausted thinking about it!
