Joe Casey and the rest of Protomatyr shared their angst at Whammy Bar earlier this week.
Here is a video. Very challenging conditions at the Whammy, it’s always so bloody dark.
Love the way Joe fishes a bottle opener out of his suit pocket to open his beer.
Great set and hopefully they will come back soon.
It almost didn’t happen, but The Others Way fest rolled out on 1 Sept. No Aussie bands this time but a welcome visit from Canadian Flying Nun’ers The Courtneys was a treat.
Great vibe. Everyone was out to listen. Nice frocks.
Earth Tongue were one of the first bands I caught. Gussie Larkin was in good form as you can see below. They are playing a new tune -- Pentagram on the Moon. After a costume change she played later in Mermaidens.
Gussie Larkin and Ezra Simons play a thrashy version of psychedelia.
No Aussie visitors this year but the Courtneys were cool. I am always impressed with drummers who sing -- great coordination.
Getting late -- bring on da thrash
My pick of the night were Queen Neptune. Funny, tuneful and very entertaining. I hope that Caoimhe Macfehin and Karl Steven play again soon. Caoimhe wore a Star Trek TOS dress!
Until next year…
