Video & Photos from Corner Richmond Dean tribute gig


First, I would like to say this is the best gig I have ever experienced. The candles and opening feedback before the band launched into Babycakes was chilling; everybody there shed a tear. Raul's rendition of Fairy Park was both unexpected and uplifting. We lavished in songs both old, unexpected, rare and new, but the image that will be burned into my mind is the band coming onto stage in pure darkness, the only light being a glimmer from the candles as Adalita stood hunched over an amp for a full 10 minutes, drowning the whole of Richmond in the wailing feedback of her guitar as we stood, silent, trying to fathom the sadness that the band and Turner family must be experiencing, inspired by the band's determination to continue to play live music despite this tragedy.

Unfortunately my shitty camera can only take about 30 mins of footage, it would be great if anybody else got video to post it, or if anybody has video from the other gigs. My friend said somebody officially with the band had a camera; is this true? It would be amazing if the band released a live compilation DVD because the intensity of this show is too amazing to be lost.

I've posted some pix I took here:

More videos to come when I have time to upload!

Thank you to the band for offering us fans such a brilliant and cathartic experience, during what is a difficult time and what must make gigging hard. As a fan of 10 years, it was a honour to be invited to participate in the 'grieving process' as Adalita humbly put it, to listen to her sad letter, and it must take unimaginable strength to play gigs during this sad time. For what the band have, and continue to, give us fans is priceless.

I would like to say on behalf of MD fans everywhere that our hearts continue to go out to you, and we are forever grateful for the music you deliver us.

Re: Video & Photos from Corner Richmond Dean tribute gig


it was a very special performance. heavy and powerful. my ears are still strongly ringing from the 3 guitar attack, with daniel herring joining them for 3 songs. !@#$ awesome!

the crowd was excellent as well, very full, and the usual bar chatter very quickly switched to complete silence during the start of babycakes and adalitas speech.

thanks to the dirtbags for having UC in ballarat and melbourne, it meant a lot to us.
