Band of Skulls

I first heard about these guys through a friend a couple of years ago, but haven't really followed them up until I got this gig through the Dwarf as part of a feast of Splendor in the Grass sidewshows that are coming through Melbourne at the moment.

I took some photos of the support band Fire! Santa Rosa, Fire!, but the lighting was shit and so were the photos - what didn't get deleted in the camera on the tram on the way home got deleted when I put them on the computer.
