Sigur Rós @ Harvest Festival, Werribee (2012-11-10)

Mostly went to Harvest because I thought it'd be cool to see Sigur Rós outdoors at a festival. It was, but didn't quite match their show at The Palais in 2006, which is still one of the best gigs I've been to. Still, a great performance! I got to Harvest really late due to work and didn't see any other full sets so this is all I ended up recording. Turned out well, enjoy!

The xx @ Forum Theatre, 18/07/2012

So this one's from a few months back, but as I was going through my folder of un-uploaded recordings, I thought, "Why not?" I've been really enjoying their second album Coexist which came out not long after this gig, and now I'll be able to put names to the songs easily, so yeah, here it is. Not really a lot to say about this gig, except that it was pretty damn good. The Forum was a perfect choice of venue for them, as it is for most bands. Anyway, here it is. All the songs from xx were played, as well as a few newies. Sound was awesome on the night, but I was a fair way back, just in front of the desk, so the recording sounds a bit distant, I guess. You'll definitely need to turn the volume up.

Spoon @ Big Day Out Festival (2008-01-28)

The first of 3 Spoon shows I saw in the space of 4 days and probably my favorite. It was a festival set and as such, to the point. I was stupidly happy they opened with Beast and Dragon as that's the song that got me into them in the first place. The horns section was also awesome too and made the new songs kind of stand outs for me. These guys should come back here soon.

I recorded this from directly next to the soundboard. For a festival set it came out quite well.
Note: this picture is not mine but one I found on the net.
