Wolfmother Showdown



Last week I was blown away by the electrifying performance of Sydney rockers, Wolfmother! They'd recently landed back in the land of Oz to do a couple of shows before they head back overseas to the US and Europe.
The sold out concert last Thursday, the 20th of July at The Hordern Pavillion in Sydney opened with two support acts; The Tucker B's (Australia) and Dungen (Sweden). The high theatrical-like drama and energy from the Tucker B's was definately kooky and strange, yet easily fantastical at the same time. Their unique stage presence and belching songs was surreal and impressionable. I then almost lost myself in the psychedelic sounds from Dungen, a band from Sweden. The beautiful sounds that came from the combination of the flute and band instruments were reminiscent of the free love and spirit of the 70s.

The headline performance by Wolfmother was awesome and they looked real good too! :) The Sydney trio really know how to rock the socks off everyone and I was glad to be one of them! All their catchy songs were played; Woman, Minds Eye, White Unicorn, Collosal, Love Train, Joker and the Theif (my favourite), amongst many more tracks.
That night was also lead singer, Andrew's birthday and it was quite fitting that we all sang Happy Birthday to him. It has all been recorded on film; the lights, cameras and crew on stage made sure nothing went astray. :) Happy Birthday Andrew! I hope you enjoyed what was left of your chocolate cake after your generous cake tossing to us :)

I'll definately be looking out for the footage that was taken at the concert!

Lucky Bastards Chosen

A few blog posts back I mentioned a competition that I entered called 'Junior Lucky Bastard'. Today I checked out the 55dsl website and foudn out they'd decided on two winners. Unfortunately I wasn't one but nevertheless, 55dsl made some two very good choices. The winners were Jeremy Angelier (top choice) and Rob Jung (hilariously funny try hard :)). I'll be keeping a look out for the hilarious antics they get up to.

Check out their applications.
