Half time entertainment

•September 21, 2014 • Leave a Comment

Played a solo gig at the stkilda bowls club at half time. Got 20 minutes to bash out some punk songs to the club locals. It was fun. Just gotta get off before they. Bounce the ball four the 3rd quarter.
Always get a few people after who connected to it. I feel like a young punk rock Bob Dylan, taking my message anywhere there’s people. Only I’m not young, but you get my drift..

For me, the meer opportunity to be obnoxious to an entire room of relaxed sports revellers is pure gravy!

DIY PUNK PARTIES

Yesterday I hosted a party at home for Olga and Nathan, as they had returned home, and we owed them one after the legendary skate parties they ran.
Nathan has been an inspiration to me to organise parties, be carefree, and trust that everyone and everything will come together and be amazing.. unpredictable.

I’ve always loved the sound that you get playing outside. Theres a world of air to push. I heard whitty from spiderbait jam on my Gibson, and I couldn’t believe how nice the tone was. My old Tama rockstar kit sounded beautiful.
Playing parties takes away the intimidating and soulless vibe that venues seem to have. DIY/BYO/12FU
