The Dead C Live @ Laneway


Towards the evening I gather with mates at the small Doc Marten stage to hear The Dead C play some of the classic Dundin sound. The Dead C have been around since 1986, and yet this was my first time seeing them live. I found their set enjoyable because of its abrasiveness, and I came to love their eerie, jarring sound. I did feel like I was in a space ship back in the mid-sixties when 'Voodoo spell' played.

Mitski Live @ Laneway


She started very theatrically and intensely, pacing back and forth across the stage, getting faster and faster as the song progressed. Dazzling and engaging are words I heard from friends used about Mitski and her performance! I loved Mitski's show, and I couldn't take my eyes off her, and as usual, I sang at the top of my lungs with a grin on my face. A favourite for sure.

Gang of Youths Live @ Laneway 2019

Bloody hell I almost didn't make this show! The crowd was far too thick, and I had to yell and try and push through! In fact, I missed the first song, luckily it was not my favourite. After the set, I chatted with a few of the photographers with a huge grin on my face. One said "You loved that! I could see you dancing around with your camera". The security guards all know me by this point, and all start laughing when I try to dance and shoot at the same time (Not easy BTW). I was starting to get sunburnt and tired at this point in the day, plus I was very ill, but this show boosted my soul.

Bene Live @ Laneway 2019


So funny story about Bene.

Its starts with me entering Laneway. I walk around, taking photos and hanging with friends, the whole time people keep looking at me. "It's cos I'm looking so great!" I thought vainly, in my Jimmy D top and belt, my Lonely hat and Dr Martens. After about 2 hours, people started coming up to me and saying how much they loved my singles and asking whether they could get a photo with me. I found everybody's look of embarrassment at realising that I'm not Bene to hard to bare, so if you see pictures of me with adoring fans, Soz.
