Candle Records 100th Release Gig

Ventured out last night to the Candle Records gig essentially to see the Small Knives who I'd been meaning to catch up with for a long time. I was a bit hesitant about the $18 cover charge, however for five or so hours of flat out entertainment it turned out to be great value.

Now some of my highlights.

Firstly the Small Knives, I particularly loved the first song, despite a few sound glitches. And it was good to see what Leo from Missing Link does with his spare time. Sublime, touching, beautiful.

Darren Hanlon paying the shit out of Ben Lee, and reminding all in attendence that 'happiness is just a chemical.' Clever and catchy.

And last, but not least, the Lucksmiths. Upbeat and chirpy as hell as per usual. Finishing on 'Ask' by The Smiths with Darren Hanlon was a great moment, and 'T-shirt weather' couldn't have been more appropriate ever- because it was stinking fucking hot.
