Protomatyr at the Whammy Bar – Wednesday, 21 February 2018

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’s Always Better Live Pt 2 – The Others Way Festival 2017

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

Unsanitary Napkin at The Others Way Festival on 1 September 2017

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!
