The Peep Tempel European Tour photo roundup

peep tempel germany

This was my first International band tour coverage. Whatever I do next, if I never get to do this again (tour gigs are a rarity in this day and age), I’ll feel forever blessed to have been along for The Peep Tempel’s inaugural International ride. The tour kicked off in late August 2012, starting in […]

The Hives at Falls Festival

Pelle Almqvist of Swedish band The Hives

Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist did so much jumping and the rest of The Hives had their usual incredible, contagious, energy levels at Falls Festival in Lorne that I thought The Hives deserved their own photo post.  

The Flaming Lips at Falls Festival

The Flaming Lips put on such a spectacular show at The Falls Festival in Lorne, I thought it was only appropriate to give them their own entire blog post to show the entire antics of their shows….

Falls Festival 2012 photos

Well, Falls Festival is done and dusted for another year. A rather epic 4 days of the usual Falls Lorne dry, scalding heat in the sun, freezing cold in the shade, dusty, heavily-trodden paths from campsite main stage and that goddamn hill from Valley stage to Grand Theatre stage but, of course, plenty of good […]

Japandroids will be in Australia soon

Australia, you are in for a treat. Japandroids will be in the country for Laneway Festival in February. I’ve never seen circle-pits like I encountered at the Japandroid set at Tilburg’s Incubate Music Festival (Holland) in September this year. Freaking epic. The best part? Security allowing adults to be adults. Circle-pit participants were left to enjoy […]

Incubate Festival – Holland

The Peep Tempel’s European tour took the lad’s to Tilburg in Holland where they played Incubate Festival. On the bill were stellar bands like Mogwai, The Buzzcocks, The Men, Japandroids, danish punk bands Iceage & Lower to name but a few. I’ll be adding more photos in the coming days but here’s my favourites of Lower […]

Harvest Festival 2012 – Melbourne photos

Photo of Grizzly Bear at Melbourne's Harvest Festival 2012

This was my first Harvest Festival. Last year was the inaugural and I was covering triple j’s Straight to You – tribut to Nick Cave concerts. But as they say, never buy the first release of anything….by the sounds of last year, it may go the same for the first year of any music festival […]

The Men will be your new favourite band

The Men will be your new favourite band. Just sayin’. As a photographer, it’s rare that I shoot any bands that I don’t already know. Let alone get to shoot when I’m not ‘working’. Which is not a bad thing. I became a photographer for a reason. It just means that it’s really rare that I […]

Soundwave 2012 rolls through Melbourne

Dillinger Escape Plan at Mebourne Soundwave 2012 by Kate Griffin

I think I’ve shot every Soundwave Festival that’s ever come through Melbourne, except the Faith No More year when some bright spark decided to supply me a writers pass rather than a photo pass. Which sucked because they weren’t letting me in with a bag full of cameras unless I had photo accreditation and I […]
