Big Night Out

First to the Judy for No Anchor CD Launch. Heinz Riegler opened and his new material is beautiful. Very beautiful imagery and simple playing to showcase it. Still developing so maybe later there can be before and after comparisons but until then ou just have to take the word of anyone who has seen him recently; It will be worth the wait. So looking forward to seeing it hit daylight.

Closely followed by Laurence English on hand pumped harmonium or similar and electronic drone effects.

No Anchor did well in a room that is effectively a concrete box. Brutal.

And so to The Step Inn for Miss Jess's Birthday bash though the bands did not know before hand that is what it was. She got to see her three favourite bands. Mine too.

I missed Nova Scotia but saw Sekiden.

Also Seaplane. Again looking forward to the new CD which will be even better than the first.

All in all a great night. 5 and a half worls class acts for $25 plus beer. Where else but Brizvegas.

New equipment is now fully operational. I learned a lot at this festival, specifically during Deafwish, Dan Kelly, Jim White & John Doe [jeez they are funny guys] and Gary Numan. Still playing with the Church set and if I can do it justice I'll post it later.


Walking past the Globe having missed a ticket to The Fumes I chanced upon this celebration of all things rock, hard rock. Headline with a band named Ceremony and you know there is going to be a Cult influence. Haven't had a night of music like this since i was a young boy.
