Big Day Out 2006 (Melbourne)

maybe i'm getting old but young kids who are off there tits give me the shits.

It wasn't as exciting as other years. Names on the bill wern't that impressive. Maybe it's offially become at pop event. Managed to see Kasabian, Lilly Allen, The presets, some of the killers, dynamo, a little bit of tool and muse. Hightlight was Kasabian, defenetly a shame that they were only in a small venue, and should have played the main stage.


Venue is much better than the showgrounds with tree's and grass, and less small conjested avenues that the show grounds is known for.

Hot Chip

Hot Chip, the Corner 30/01/2007


I want one of those keyboards in this clip, damn it they dont make them anymore.

Went to the Corner by myself (well shit happens) to watch a sold out gig by UK lads Hot Chip, with plenty of over flow from the Big Day Out. Cover watch Hot Chip did a little of new orders ‘Temptation’ and Fleetwood Macs ‘Everywhere’. The type of music was a very nerdy Indie / Electro dance / Pop, which most of the crowd moving. Songs were fairly seamless at the start, and then later they got a bit more talkative. Tunes were fairly constructed on the spot unlike some acts who replicate there album.

Friday - Mink Jaguar

Fri 12/1/07 UPSTAIRS IN COBRA, The Tote

If you havent been upstairs in the Totes Cobra Lounge thing then your missing out, downstairs had the older crowd seeing Ripe, Kim Salmon and Treetops, while all the cool kids where upstairs dancing on a shakey floor to The Sailors, The Pink Fits (Syd), and Mink Jaguar (Syd).

I was standing there in this in this room, well it looked like a house party and soon people parted and all I was left with was this view of a dancer. A Go Go Dancer wearing a bikini. They had Go Go dancers? Whats with that?

Alas I only saw one of the acts on that hot night, I believe it was Mink Jaguar. They had this 60's garage rock thing going.
