Check out Louis Blanc for all the latest on the Adelaide kids formerly known as Nazarite Vow.

Note: I may have a genetic predisposition to one member (arguably two), but I feel as though that is cancelled by my unwavering hatred for the artist known as Bjear…

‘First times’ are incredible things. They are those special moments in your life that you will never forget. You remember everything. Where you were, who you were with, why you were there… Every little detail takes on an aura of significance that in any other circumstance wouldn’t.

I remember the first time I ever saw Parkway Drive play. They were opening a four-band bill at a dingy little suburban club in Berlin, Germany. We were there for the 2006 World Cup and my brother (18) and I (16) walked to and from the show from our hotel room after meeting the band in an internet cafe earlier that day. They gave me a free shirt and a set-list (which I still have on my wall today). It was one of the best shows of my life…

The first time I ever saw Jonathan Levine’s The Wackness I was in a youth hostel in L.A… John (20) and I (18) were in America for our friend’s wedding in Texas but we took some time out in California to hang about. Our hostel was practically on the beach at Santa Monica. Each morning I would go for runs along the sand and during the day we would waste our time seeing the sights, shopping, watching the Lakers and getting amongst L.A life. The youth hostel had an ‘entertainment room’ on the third floor. It would remain partially filled throughout the entire night as the hostel guests came and went with their jetlag. I had to stick out a dreadful episode of ‘Bones’ before stumbling across what was at the time an underground gem of a film.

This isn’t a review, it’s just a brief written recollection of tonight’s events, which happened to take place at a show. I Killed The Prom Queen; the darling of Adelaide’s thriving mid-naughties hardcore scene returned in a blaze of glory tonight, announcing their official return to the game. Their role as ‘main support’ may have overshadowed even the The Amity Affliction’s excellent set due to Adelaide’s long-term love affair with the dynamic five-piece.

Luckily for AJ and I we didn’t have to pay to get in. Weslo were as underwhelming as ever in their pursuit of excellence. A simple drawn-on stamp (with a black biro) was enough to navigate our way past their incompetence and into the show.

This is great. Especially the final question… The poor girl was absolutely clueless as to how much shit they were dropping. Quality!

Day 15: A song that motivates you

Bring Me The Horizon – Chelsea Smile

Nothing like bone-chilling breakdowns and the sonic boom of a good Bring Me The Horizon track to get you jacked up, right? Their sophomore album Suicide Season; guaranteed to be blaring from the Volvo speakers on the way to every soccer game I’ve played in, has been my go-to soundtrack for the last two years.  Typically, with a few minutes ’til arrival I’ll skip back to track two and let Chelsea Smile go to town on my stereo and eardrums.

I’m not going to lie; I was pretty excited knowing that I could finish Soccer and get to Soundwave in time to see a quality run of bands. I planned my timetable with my cousin (little nutter froths on such events) and was all set until I remembered I have to work that night. It’s not the first (and almost certainly not the last) time work has ruined my plans. Damn you necessity for money!

I’ll throw up my rad ‘paint-job timetable’ anyway in the hope that it somehow makes me feel better…

Give this pic the old ‘open in new window’ to suss the timetable.
