Live Shots: TRACE (Live @ Tomcat 04/10/19)

TRACE are a heavy duo that uses a lot of accessories and peripheries in the music to make up for the other non existant members. I’m talking about one guy playing two guitars over the course of the set, both of them singing and there’s actual fucking rattles. Which we discovered do not rattle very if you try to do it with your teeth. They also use some ambient backing tracks which when I first entered the venue, I thought was the beginning of a drone set. I had no idea what to expect and TRACE delivered on something I didn’t know I needed. TRACE opened the show for the night and remained memorable. […]

Live Shots: Chavez Cartel @ Tomcats Brisbane 27/09/19

One of the highlights of the night and I had a real hard time getting photos, at least there’s this short video that pretty much captures the dark essence of the performance. I definitely want to see them again soon, I’m sure i’ll have this camera figured out by then. It was a really intense performance, particularly the singer who has strong anti-stage presence. Paired with the themes of the music, makes for a very memorable and intimate experience. […]
