13.12.2010 - Tegan and Sara (Incomplete)

First time seeing the girls live, I enjoyed the set, wasn't blown away though. Missed recording the first song or two, was still setting up my microphones and there was no warning the girls were coming out on stage.

I haven't split this recording up into individual tracks, and I couldn't find a set list but if you want it, its up for download. Enjoy.

15.12.2010 - Jac Stone

EDIT: Jac's manager asked that the files not be made public, I'm assuming due to the fact Jac's EP isn't out yet. As such, I have removed the link.

Saw Jac Stone at the Zoo last night, it's the second time I've seen Jac live. Loved every minute of it. Thankfully Jac gave me permission to record audio, so I was able to set up a stand, instead of having to hide my microphones. The first few songs picked up a bit of noise from the fans on the wall, and some very minor distortion, but apart from that the rest of the gig is solid. Darren Middleton of Powderfinger fame made an appearance on a few songs. There was also a great Kings of Leon cover.

Got to meet Jac after the show, she is super lovely. Managed to get a setlist too. It's worth downloading this show, can't wait for the EP!

13.12.2010 - Jack Johnson

This was the third time I've seen Jack this year and it was certainly the best show. Saw him for the start of the tour in Byron Bay and saw him last night for the final show of the tour. So amazing. Jack and the band appeared to be loving it, and the crowd was going nuts for them. One of the highlights for me was Jack and band covering 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun' with Tegan & Sara.

This was my first time using my new microphones, a set of SP-CMC-2 cardioids, so I was nervous as to what the result would be, especially when I had hardly any time to set up. Surprisingly though the recording is excellent. The girls behind me got particularly drunk and loud near the end (one obnoxious bitch was talking on her phone loudly through numerous songs) but I wasn't able to move away.

Great night though, you need to download this recording!
