I knew there would be poor lighting at the Ed tonight for this set by Dangerous! so I brought my own. I used on camera, diffused flash for fill and a low shutter to bring up the backgrounds, then I got up nice and close for wide shots of the carnage. Dangerous! have a live [...]
Friends blew the room apart at the first ever Rip It Up “Hot Pack” event – a night showcasing 6 handpicked bands set to do big things in the upcoming year. It’s been a long while since Adelaide has seen a band lock into grunge infested grooves played with such intensity and they had my [...]
Poor lighting did nothing to help this set by Radio Spectacular!!! as part of the inaugural Rip It Up “Hot Pack” event – a night showcasing 6 handpicked bands set to do big things in the upcoming year. Radio Spectacular!!! didn’t win any new fans tonight, in fact they successfully cleared the room of almost [...]
I have been meaning to catch a Spine show for almost 2 years, so when they popped up on the Rip It Up “Hot Six” this year (and the inaugural showcase event “Hot Pack”) I got my chance. Brilliantly lit under the new stage lighting at the Ed, their set was touching, personal, moving and [...]

The tragic death of Magic Dirt’s Dean Turner and their subsequently canceled tour left me free last Saturday to get to the Ed Castle to catch Lyla. I’d previously met Stefan (keys) a couple of times before and had been wanting to see his band since then, so what better chance than tonight as they [...]
