It’s been a while between shooting gigs for me, but i was back on the game on Saturday at the Come Together Festival at Luna Park. It was a good chance to catch up with a bunch of local bands and see the new upstarts.
Bluejuice seemed to have the best crowd reaction all day. People were going bananas for them. And despite Jake having a plaster cast on his leg, he was hopping around dancing madly on stage.
As usual Young and Restless were intense and Karina re-inforced her status as the number one frontwoman in Australia.
Dublin boys The Thrills made up the minor international component of the day.
The Galvatrons impressed with their Van Halen-esque anthems. They’re the latest buzz band around but it remains to be seen what it will amount to.
Sparkadia was fantastic as usual. With their new album hitting the airwaves they seem to have picked up a legion of new fans.
It’s a pretty cool venue for a music festival, a fun park underneath the Harbour Bridge.
Little Red crooned with their nostalgic love songs.
The cavernous Big Top where most bands played.
Faker deservedly headlined the day and put on a reliably energetic performance.
I’d not seen The Dirty Secrets before but they were rather good. Reminscint of The Killers or Hot Hot Heat.
