All Tomorrow's Parties - I'll Be Your Mirror Melbourne, day one: in which I brought on heat exhaustion by chasing natural light around an otherwise blacked out, oppressively hot sporting complex in Altona. Swans played for two hours, and played under lights, so I shouldn't complain. Godspeed turned theirs off (or down, but maybe this was a photographic deterrent). I'm not sure what My Bloody Valentine did because they forbade photography, and my capacity for visual memory is shot after so many years of CCD reliance.
These pictures were shot for ATP and for TheVine. I'd like to redo this full festival and not work at it, because it was excellent.
Bands pictured (in order) are Swans, HTRK, New War, Thee Oh Sees, Oren Ambarchi. Full gallery here.
