These guys were on of the surprise acts for me on the Meredith lineup this time around. The thought of seeing them play to the Saturday afternoon crowd was quite interesting seeing as every time I've seen them its to less than 200 or so people so to expand on that 50 times would be quite a step up. I'm very glad to say though that even in a giant setting like Meredith, Smith Street fit right in and played one of the standout sets of the weekend.
Opening with the triple of Sunshine & Technology, Postcodes, and Sigourney Weaver pretty much cemented my love for this band but as always seeing Get High, See Mice just ruled more than anything. Love that song so god damn much. As soon as it came on my boot was held high. The Smith Street Band deserved it. Lets do it again Meredith 2014?
I actually didn't record this one with my microphones on me. I knew I wanted to get a little rowdy so I left them in the care of my fiancé and a friend who were sitting on a picnic rug about halfway up the hill on the left side of stage. The mice were at ground level facing the microphone stack and I'm actually really surprised the sound came out as well as it did. I had to do a little work in post to reduce the lower end but that was it.
