Every year the people of Adelaide embrace their inner Zombie – unless they are already at that stage through natural causes and take to the streets of Adelaide for the Annual Zombie walk. The Event is open to the public and is free but participants are encouraged to buy a wristband which allows them entry to the best dressed Zombie competition and other perks such as entry to clubs after the walk, cheaper drinks and lots more including getting squirted with fake blood in the splatter tent pre walk. Proceeds from these donations go to Foodbank

Here is the video of the 2017 AZW with the prewalk footage, the walk itself and a bit of the after party/ DJ

The 2018 Adelaide Zombie walk is only 2 weeks away held on October 13th 2018 starting in Rundle Park, Adelaide.

Roger Waters – Adelaide Feb 2018

Posted: February 17, 2018 in Uncategorized

Roger Waters ( Pink Floyd ) was back in town playing Entertainment Centre Adelaide February 16th 2018. Of course he wanted to showcase some of his stuff off the new album, but most of us there were there to hear the Pink floyd classics and we weren’t disappointed.  They have such a huge number of hits to draw from, but they played quite a few tracks from Animals, The Wall and Dark side of the moon accompanied by a couple of Female back up singers and a great band. Didn’t take much in the way of Video as I wanted to watch the show and get immersed, but I did capture a few small bits and pieces which you can see below. Dont forget to subscribe to my youtube channel to get notified of new content.

Great show with Jodi and Trish in great vocal form and the rest of the band smashing out the rhythm and Chords. Dont forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel for regular updates

 

Here’s some footage shot last time they played Womadelaide in 2010. Was a cracker of a set and had the whole crowd pumped. Keep an eye out for them this year playing Friday Night 9:30 stage 3 and again on Saturday 5:45 Foundation stage

With Womadelaide 2018 less than 8 weeks away ( 9th-12th March 2018 ) its time to put the spotlight on the event and some of the many International and Local artists that will be gracing the Stage.

If you are a regular Womadelaide patron, you are probably aware that Tinariwen have previously played at Womadelaide twice previously with the most recent performance here in 2012. Due to conflict in Mali, 2 of the band members were unable to make the trip. Well its now 6 years later and they are heading back to Adelaide. When I first saw them I was blown away by the driving hypnotic beats with Guitars and vocals cutting through the air whilst all the time fully dressed in the attire they wear in the Deserts of Mali. They are often described as playing Desert Blues and are sure to be one of the many highlights at this years festival.

Womadelaide 2012 – Tinariwen

 

 

I think everyone that has had Silkworms thinks a timelapse will be cool, and I have done one in the past a few years back, but this week ramped it up with controlled lighting. Original footage is shot in 4K and looks amazing. My first run was a traditional timelapse taking a photo every 10 seconds, but I soon realised that when hungry the silkworms can move around a fair bit so decided to just shoot straight video and then speed it up. 64 gig of Video at 4K which took around 1hr 20 mins and then sped up/ compressed time to just over 2 minutes.

One of the first concerts I ever went to was Midnight oil, playing at Memorial Drive in Adelaide back in 1984. I was a massive fan of the early stuff but their albums fell out of favour in my mind after they release Red Sails in the Sunset. When I heard they were reforming for the World Circle Tour I was excited followed by Disappointment that they were playing at “Adelaide Oval”. The Oval itself is very bad acoustically due to the large sound reflective Grandstands so I hesitated when tickets went on sale. It wasn’t till a little later I found they weren’t actually playing inside the oval but Adjacent to it ( Right next to Memorial Drive where I had seen them 30+ years prior ). By then it was too late and the show was sold out.

With a few days to go I put out feelers to see if anyone had purchased a ticket was now unable to go and thankfully I found someone local and bought their ticket. So glad I went as was an amazing show. There were only a couple of songs they played that I wasn’t overly familiar with being from Newer albums but plenty of older stuff that I knew every word to. Great night and I captured some short snippets of Video from some of the songs played

 

Here it is – Enjoy

 

Taken a while to finish off the edit but finally I can present the video compilation of the Adelaide Zombie walk 2016 which started and finished in Elder Park that year due to roadworks. Make sure you watch it in HD ( 720p or 1080p )

Womadelaide 2017 Saturday

The First full day was packed full of lots of varied acts. Getting there just before one we started off on Stage 2 with the Oki Dub Ainu band from Japan and then managed to pack in lots of acts.

Photographers are normally only allowed the first 3 songs or 10 minutes. Toni Childs, spoke for 10 minutes and then we were all ushered out before she even managed to sing a note. The crowd didnt mind though and were lapping it up. TAGO from Korea was one of my highlights and I saw them a second time on Monday.

The Waifs put on a solid performance although a photographers nightmare with the sparkly silver reflective top that Donna was wearing. I’d seen them a few times previously ( many years ago ) so left early to see what Baba Zula were like and they were excellent so moved up my what to see list for Monday.
