It's not very often i post a non-music related blog, so it must be pretty special... not really, just once in a while you take a bunch of photos somewhere that you would never usually be and they come out better than you thought... I went to the Armageddon Expo in the weekend, my girlfriend was working there so I scored free entry - just the usual freaks and geeks, Dr Who cast, people dressed as storm troopers etc.

And wrestling!

This has happened one other time - I ended up at the greyhound racing in Sydney when I was living there, I have no idea why but I got some great shots, all totally unexpected. Maybe it's good to go to things you wouldn't normally go to - get shots with fresh eyes etc etc..

I'm a lumberjack and I'm ok

I learnt a few things about Canadians tonight:

1) They dress like lumberjacks
2) They really aren't anything like Americans
3) They are kinda geeky like us Kiwis

I went along to the Ding Dong Lounge in Melbourne to photograph a Canadian Showcase for the Dwarf - Elliott Brood, Final Flash and The Trews. These three bands must be popular in the United States of Canadia right now (or are just touring at the same time) I enjoyed parts of all three bands, but I wasn't really into it tonight - end of a long week and all. The lumberjacks in the crowd seemed to enjoy it. A friend was there reviewing it aswell - maybe I'll link to hers when it is posted - it may be a little nicer.

Anyway - on with the photos.

For the first time in history I could not decide on the best cum face of the gig - so you get this little treat... A CUMTAGE!!!!!

blood on the dancefloor

OK, so things seem to be on the up and up - after a nice break from taking gig photos, I have my name down for a few (unconfirmed by the promoter) gigs: Final Flash, Georgia Fields, The Chemist, Kaki King and Girls over the next few months - so I should be blogging abit more!

Speaking of Audiac - the band I play in had the pleasure of taking part in 80 Gigs in 80 Days which has been put together by I Heart Cusack - who are playing 80 gigs in 80 days (in various forms of the band) we got to see just the singer and keyboard player on this particular night but it was still pretty cool, if you get a chance to see the full band I think it would be well worth it.

My girlfriend, Jess, took pics of us and I took the pics of the guys from I Heart Cusack...

Cum face of the gig comes from the third band of the night, what's that? I didn't mention the third band? yes I did... didn't I?

And the award for most blood shed on a bass guitar on the night goes to.......
