Die! Die! Die! last night at Oxford Art Factory

Highlights:

Lachlan. Bringing him in on bass was the best move ever, he has great stage presence and his bass lines are increasingly becoming the centerpiece of the band's songs, to great effect. He also wears an awesome jacket.

The crowd being rowdy, out of control, inconsiderate, and making for an amazing exchange of energy with the band. Usually i'd hate a crowd like that, but it was very fitting.

The guy who stood on stage near the end of the set, took off his jacket and his shirt, and stood there for an entire song while he was pelted with schooners.

Blue Skies. That song still floors me every time.


It was a great night, and they definitely got me out of a sagging mood. I reviewed it for Fasterlouder, I'll post a link when it's up.

Heyya.. Die! Die! Die! are indeed a stellar band live. Are you still doing stuff for FL? They've blackout regarding gig reviewers and mailouts - am I the only being left in the dark here?

Oxford Art is a damn good venue.

Oh bum, I think they took me off the contributor mailout. Noooo..

I only asked because I wasn't sure. Plus I know they had that editors shuffle thing going on last month, so I just thought they were still sorting things out.
