Nine Inch Nails & Queens of the Stone Age 6th March

Yeah. I got to see these heavyweights perform back to back in my own hometown. I may have had fun, whatever.
The air was thick with the smell of damp t-shirts, watered down beer and lit buds. Once you got over the fact that you were at one point in the night going to be covered in beer, have your face grazed across a sweaty back, and be punched somewhere, you would have been in for a night. Before commenting on the delicious set these guys performed, I have to hand it to the crowd. They were absolutely throbbing, and I have bruises, but oh god it was so much fun. I've been in some terrible mosh pits in my time, and this was probably the most considerate, caring pit of people I have the pleasure to share a show with. 
Now, the music. It was so entirely refreshing to watch artists play tight, timely sets. No encores, no revolving stages, no confetti canons. They came on stage, played brilliantly and left.  And it was one of the best sets I've watched, and, I've been to every Gaga show in Sydney. 
So all in all, well done NIN and QotSA, I commend you on your musical expertise, PLEASE COME BACK AGAIN. 

Sorry for the shocking iPhone photos, and here's an additional picture of me sipping free champagne before heading in. Is this picture be the correct application of the term 'Ballin'? #Discuss

Spiritual celebration of a Dance legend: I'M WITH AJAX @ Club 77 22nd February

Mind, body, spirit and soul were bathed in luscious rave anthems. It was certainly a night of tribute that the
late dance legend AJAX would have been proud of. DJ Damage, Jamie Doom, Dangerous Dan, Gus Da Hoodrat and  Double Nolan, with their DJ powers combined it was a delicious, rave-y, sweaty, and very rare night. Please stop now if you're already jealous, because I'm just going to make it worse. Holllaaa. 
The queues were around the corner, but it was so worth the wait. With songs like MR OIZO's 'Cut Dick' (if you haven't heard this check it out NOW) and Tiga's Remix of Märtini Brös's 'Big & Dirty', being dropped, it just became too much goodness for me to handle.
Not to mention they were flipping records and all wearing matching 'I'M WITH AJAX' tees. 
Everyone at some point in the night was able to scream/cry/laugh/yell 'OH MY GOD THIS IS MY FAVORITE
SONG EVER'. Which just added to the overall joy of the night.
Lots of shirtlessness, lots of killer tracks, lots of fake flowers lots of everything good really.

Louisahhh!!! x Maelstrom @ MOTORIK 15th February

It seems like just yesterday I drunkly stumbled into my first Motorik, to see the leading lady of Techno herself, Louisahhh!!!. This time we were short of a secret warehouse, but the Tunes were still scrumptious and the patrons still absolutely thriving from the the XTC, NRG etc etc. Louisahhh!!! and Maelstrom took to the decks at 2am, by then, things had taken a turn for the turnt up. The crowd was more than pleased to finally have their minds, bodies and souls assaulted with house-music-all-night-long. It was a 3 hour set. 3 HOURS OF TECHO GOODNESS, or should I say GOONness. Bangers were dropped, left right and center, absolute bangers of tracks were neatly slid into their set. Canblasters remix of Funkin Matt feat Teki Latex's Get Loose, Jubilee & Burt Fox's Keys Wallet Phone, Louisahhh!!! & Maelstrom's Make It Happen, just to name a few. 
When it all finally came to an end, the sun was out, the patrons were wired and I was done with lyf. At some point in the night I met Louisahhh!!! and I don't remember the exact conversation I had with her, but I'm sure I would have been yelling the whole time, and also said something along the lines of "FSDDOSDFSEODSyouareamazing".

Black was my color of choice, to reflect the emptiness of my soul and because I was too lazy to coordinate any sort of color scheme. 

Obviously the joy was too much for me to handle #toomuch
