ok. So tonight, VIVID LIVE begins. I am a little excited. I also live in Melbourne. And this is a two week festival. So, i’m heading up tonight and heading back Monday (Can’t afford to stay the full two weeks ya know.)
For me, it’s going to be part get away/part excitement times. We’re checking out the Leave Them All Behind party tonight which features Bag Raiders, Azari & III, Beni, Softwar, The Swiss and Softblow DJs. LINEUP ANYONE??!!
Then on Sunday night we’re checking out Architecture In Helsinki. That should be really really really great and am psyched.
So, sure, I miss out on The Avalanches, and it was a toss up between Cut Copy and Architecture in Helsinki on Sunday (I’ve seen Cutters a heap of times and I’ve never seen AiH live before). And then there’s Van She who are playing at Sneaky Sundays on Sunday afternoon. Kinda wish we booked tix to that, but then again, there’s no point in going if it’s gonna clash with AiH.
But, yes. Am still friggin happy to be heading up. The Opera House is an amazing venue, so this should be a goodun!!
To celebrate, we got a few tracks and clips just below for you.

For me it’s the fact that The Avalanches are playing. I think i’m definitely going to have to fly up to Syds town for this one. Excitement is a bit of an understatement.
It seems every site under the sun are saying that they got there first. I got my info off The Vine, but it seems as though awesome bros Pedestrian as well as Mess + Noise and a few others have got the ‘exclusive’ too. I think the real winner here is the inner detective in all of us.
