Yesterday afternoon I braved the harsh summer sun to wander around St Kilda and soak up some of the festival good times.
The St Kilda Festival is a free annual event which runs for a bit over a week and culminates in Festival Sunday (yesterday). There is free live music, and rides, and stuff, and they close off the streets and it’s generally pretty good. A lot of people seem to get very drunk and wander around not closed streets and cause ruckuses so it has it’s problems, but most festival type events do.
I was there for a couple of hours in the afternoon, so before the real drunkenness started, and I snapped couple of cool shots with the 50mm lens on my Canon 1100D.
House of Lawrence are a Melbourne based psych rock four piece. They were pretty awesome. You should check them out here.
Chris Russell, of Chris Russell’s Chicken Walk, a two piece which was just drums and guitar, described as blues, and they definitely rocked. You should check them out here.
It would be impossible for one person to capture everything that was happening on festival day and do it any kind of justice, so I didn’t try. What I saw, I enjoyed, and what I enjoyed I have shared with you. Yay for Australian Live Music! Rock on!
