Live Concerts

  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. With the release of his landmark CD ?Where There Is Life? in 1995, Luciano emerged as one of the most important reggae singers in decades and the greatest hope for roots reggae?s survival in the digital dancehall era. Since that much acclaimed release, Luciano?s music has been consistently praised for imparting sentiments of spiritual salvation, Rastafarian edification and African repatriation. We captured this amazing show from him way back in 2008.  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. Another Swedish sensation. OK, not as big as that other Swedish ?pop group?, but she should be! A great mix of dreamy indie pop and electronica, we were lucky enough to capture this small club show back in 2009 following the release of her debut album ?Youth Novels?. Some great originals and some pretty handy covers from artists as diverse as Vampire Weekend, Kings of Leon and A Tribe Called Quest.  
  • Live at the Brixton Academy, London. The digital dancehall specialists otherwise known as Major Lazer had a blast in Brixton with a highly-charged, hyper-active explosion of beats, booty girls, Zorb Balls and smoke guns, supported by Redlight and Martello. We filmed the premiere of their full theatre show in 2013.  
  • Live at Garage, London. Emerging from Chicago during 2004 as a four piece, Maps & Atlases initially formed part of that city?s burgeoning diverse underground scene of the early 2000?s (which embraced a wide variety of post-hardcore, math rock, indie, punk and emo acts). With both folk and experimental music as core early influences, Maps & Atlases were originally lumped into the math rock category. However, over the years, they definitely outgrew that categorisation, particularly through their first two critically acclaimed albums, 2010?s extraordinary ?Perch Patchwork? and 2012?s ?Beware and Be Grateful?. We caught them in London during 2012 when they were touring in support of that second album. Inexplicably, they went into hiatus (at least on the recording front) for the next 6 years, re-emerging in 2018 as a trio and with a new album in tow, ?Lightlessness Is Nothing New?. Sadly, not much has been heard of them in recent years (we?re pretty sure COVID didn?t help!), but hopefully we haven?t seen the last of these guys.  
  • Live at the Metro Theatre, Sydney. Known as one of the hardest working bands since their inception, Mayday Parade have honed their patented style of catchy, kinetic pop punk with an outpour of real rock energy. The Florida quintet knows its identity and this show from 2014 delivers everything the group?s fervent fan base loves about Mayday Parade. Evincing evolution in song writing, the band?s growth since their inception shone through in the shimmering soaring hooks throughout the unshakable, heart-felt collection of songs.  
  • Live at the No Sleep Til Festival, Sydney. Me First and the Gimme Gimmes (often shortened to just Me First or ?The Gimme Gimmes? and named after a children's book of the same name) are a punk rock supergroup formed in 1995. We captured this show back in 2010. Believe it or not, they work exclusively as a covers band! They even do Xanadu. No kidding.  
  • Live at No Sleep Til Festival, Sydney. This band, led by Dave Mustaine since its formation in the early 80s, is one of the acknowledged giants of the heavy metal scene. They certainly don?t need any superfluous introduction from us! If you know anything about heavy metal, then you know these guys. Filmed on a rare trip to Australia for the No Sleep Til festival in 2010, the show followed the release of their twelfth album ?Endgame?. Take it away boys!  
  • Live at Marrickville Bowling Club, Sydney. Filmed in 2019 not long before the untimely death of much loved front man Greedy Smith, this show is a real crowd pleaser - all the hits, ladies and gentlemen!  
  • Live at Beck's Festival Bar, Sydney. London based three-piece Metronomy garnered critical acclaim for their frenetically hybrid indie style knitted together with trademark electronics. Band member Joseph Mount?s prolific remixing career (including Ladytron, Klaxons, Franz Ferdinand, Sebastien Tellier, Gorillaz, Love Is All and Roots Manuva) and the band?s relentless touring kept Metronomy?s name in all the right places - including Beck's Bar in 2009!  
  • Live at the Oxford Art Factory, Sydney. Miami Horror are an Australian indietronica band which was initially formed by its producer and DJ, Benjamin Plant, who began it as a solo project. This intimate show from 2014 was captured at the Oxford Art Factory. And these guys never gave us a setlist, so we hope we've got all the song titles correct. But if you think we've got any of them wrong, let us know!  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. Mogwai are a Scottish rock band from Glasgow. Formed in 1995, Mogwai has since become one of the most influential and best known names in post-rock. They typically compose instrumental, sometimes lengthy guitar-based pieces in the post-rock tradition. This show from 2009 is a testament to that. Amen!  
  • Live at the Factory Theatre, Sydney.They?ve worked with Blink 182 and Fallout Boy, toured the world and boast a fanbase that redefine the term ?die-hard?. They?re Motion City Soundtrack. Running hot on the heels of their appearances at the colossal 2013 Soundwave Festival, the Minnesota five-piece treated fans to the perfect slice of poetic pop-punk at Sydney?s Factory Theatre. With every word echoed by the crowd, the band dove deep into latest album at the time ?Go? as well as their back catalogue including fan favourites like ?My Favorite Accident?, ?L.G. FUAD? and ?Hold Me Down?. Boy-girl dramas and over-self-analysis never sounded so fun ? or infectious.  
  • Live at the Manning Bar, Sydney. Seattle is famous for giving the world two things: an all-conquering global high street coffee chain and Grunge. OK, so we weren?t around to capture that other well-known Seattle export, but Mudhoney (led by irrepressible vocalist and guitarist Mark Arm) were also an integral part of that sound and are often credited with leading the way. When we filmed this show in 2013, the band was just putting out their ninth studio album ?Vanishing Point? through the legendary (and Seattle based) Sub Pop label.  
  • Live at the Annandale Hotel, Sydney. This New York band was for some time best known for the atypical (and rarely played by them these days, if at all) song?Popular? from their 1996 album High/Low. Their other stuff (which they keep on releasing) is much, much better! We filmed them in 2012 on the tour to support their then current release (and a bit of a classic to us!) ?The Stars Are Indifferent to Astronomy?. We remain big fans.  
  • Live at the Sydney Opera House. Back in 2012 we filmed Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner performing "41 Strings" with the Australian Youth Orchestra at the Sydney Opera House as part of that year's Sydney Festival. The piece is part concerto in the classical tradition, but with the modern rock ?n' roll feel one would expect from Zinner. Using Vivaldi's Four Seasons as inspiration, Zinner's music chronicles the ups and downs of the seasons in a swirling mass of strings and percussion. At times dark and moody, 41 Strings is also hopeful and ultimately joyful.  
  • Live at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. Nightwish is a Finnish symphonic power metal band, formed in 1996 They are considered one of the bands responsible for the development and rise in popularity of symphonic metal at the end of the 1990s, as well as the creation of the subgenre symphonic power metal. For fans, this show that we captured in 2008 is not to be missed.
