Yay, more music again!

After a VERY long time without, I had been with some great musicians last month. A very fortunate constellation of stars meant I finally got to see and hear Matt Langley and that same night experience a group of musicians on their Rough House Revival tour.

As I was working my way through Matt’s performance, my external hard drive died on me and the remaining material is gone. Not completely fortunately, as I still got the tapes, but for now I’m stumped and have to make do with what I got. Which is four tracks from his upcoming new CD, Virginia Avenue. Hopefully coming out this year. When it does,and the ensuing CD release tour, I will be shouting it from the roof tops. Well, here and Facebook roof tops that is.

You might get the impression I like him? You’re right! Not only is he a great singer and songwriter, but a nice chap as well.  The nice chap part you have to take my word for it, but as for the music, have a look and judge for yourself:

 

 

and the next two I’ll keep for next week!

see you then.

It’s been a while.

In fact waaaay to long!

 

So, what have I got?

Paper Scissors and Rosy Tin Teacaddy.

 

Here are a few videos I did for Chris and Seamus of Paper Scissors:

 

 

 

And here some photos from Rosy Tin Teacaddy’s amazing gig at Wellington’s Garden Club

 

 

I got one!

Last week, or was it three ago (?), time flies when trying to keep the kids busy at home, I managed to finish a video for Darren Watson & The Real Deal Blues Band. They were playing Tutweiler by Rick Holmstrom at the now defunct Ruby Lounge in Wellington, New Zealand.

ENJOY!

And this Friday I will be going to Wellington to see Shayne Carter’s Last Train To Brockville at Bar Bodega. Not likely to film, but I’m sure I’ll take some pics.

See you next week then.

Pirate Sons

Here are some pics from the Pirate Sons, playing at Bar Bodega, Wellington on  12.3.11

The Greenhornes 20.1.11

What a night!!

It was supposed to be The Black Keys  with The Greenhornes opening for them. That didn’t happen as the Keys cancelled due to exhaustion. Even though I was MIGHTILY disappointed I can understand, they’ve had an incredibly exhausting 2010, touring most of it.  But the people at Bar Bodega managed to pull a fast one and there I was, seeing the Greenhornes live for the first time. Not knowing their sound intimately, but having heard in an interview that their live performances are quite a treat to experience, I was quite intrigued to hear and see for myself.

Gradually the crowd was warming up and getting whipped into a decent frenzy by their songs. And so was I, well as much as in a frenzy as one can be while trying to photograph. And I have to say, as much as I enjoyed listening to the CD’s, I definitely enjoyed the live stuff MORE!

So, here some of the pics, enjoy!

Announcement:

Another blog is up and running. About my other life as Mother Hen to all sorts of critters and student of old crafts.

If you’re interested , Alter Ego is the place to go.

If not, please don’t hold your breath, more music videos will come, but I just don’t know when.

Peace and out for now,

Happy New Year! 1st Monday of 2011

I’m back? Maybe.

I’ve got hours/days of video footage to process and edit, and I just can’t see when I will find the time to do it.

And hopefully more to come as I’m going to see the Black Keys in Wellington this month!!  I AM SO LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS!

I’m thinking of having a second blog with bits and pieces of my other life, but will have to think about how and where to organize that.

In the mean time I wish you all the best, and send me some time!!!

Keep rockin’ and rollin’,

Petra

1st Monday of September, 6.9.10

I said I was busy??!!

Last weekend I went to another show at The Garden Club and had a great night. I had decided to get out the “old” dSLR and take stills instead of videos. And just as well, a huge crowd , lots of dancing and singing would have made that a hard one to film.

So here we are, Supermodel, The Earlybirds and Mercury Crowe in all their glory!

And if you want to see more pics just go into the respective folders: Mercury Crowe, The Earlybirds and Supermodel. 🙂
