18.06.2011 - Little Red

Didn't record tonight.
Pretty good band to chill to after a long day at work.
The hits were great, the rest of the set was pretty average, think the guys were a little drunk to be honest. Fun though!

21.04.2011 - Ben Harper (ft the Innocent Criminals)

What a show! Bluesfest had billed Ben Harper to play with his band Relentless 7. To everyone's surprise though, he played a reunion show with The Innocent Criminals! Ben Harper hasn't played with the Innocent Criminals since late 2008 - so it was destined to be a great show.

Ben Harper
Jason Yates
Juan Nelson
Leon Mobley
Michael Ward
Oliver Charles
Jessy Greene (accompanied Ben on Morning Yearning)

01 With My Own Two Hands
02 Ground On Down
03 Diamonds On The Inside
04 Gold To Me
05 Sexual Healing
06 Please Bleed
07 Black Rain
08 Glory & Consequence
09 Waiting For You

10 Morning Yearning
11 Mutt
12 Walk Away

13 She's Only Happy In The Sun
14 Amen Omen
15 Steal My Kisses
16 Burn One Down
17 Better Way

An amazing opening to the festival - glad I chose to see Ben over ZZ-Top. It was truly an experience to be in that Mojo tent that night. Not only is this worth downloading because of the reunion, but you need to hear the story about Leon and his Djembe for that night!

You can view the show info, photos etc on Ben's site here

A quick note: When recording the levels suddenly dropped on my recorder a few times throughout the show. I've edited them with envelopes and brought it back to normal. Hence why it's taken so long to get uploaded.

From the artists POV

Whenever I'm at a gig, I always wonder what the crowd must look like from the stage. Needless to say, I love when artists take photos and upload them for people to see. Here are a few:

Kate Miller-Heidke (Bluesfest)

Fistful of Mercy (Bluesfest)

Kate Miller-Heidke (Ben Folds, Brisbane, Night 1)

Jack Johnson (Riverstage)

A Quick Thank You

Firstly, I just wanted to thank Kate Miller-Heidke for linking my blog on her Facebook & Twitter. My web traffic exploded in a matter of an hour when she did, and I've been getting consistent viewings since. I'd also like to thank the other handful of artists, fan sites, tapers and more who have found my blog and linked it around.

I've learnt a lot in the past 12 months I've been taping - the in's and out's of taping, editing and more. I have that Taper Section forum to thank for that.

I just wish Australia, its venues and artists were more open to taping, like in the US. Maybe in time..
