BOOMGATES AT REPRESSED RECORDS 2-10-10
A sweet afternoon instore show at Repressed Records in Newtown for the release of the new Boomgates 7" (out on RIP Society). I would have loved to stay and video Dead Farmers as well but we had to leave straight after Boomgates and drive up to Newcastle (footage from there up next).
Melbourne's Boomgates - Wow. With a lineup consisting of Brendan from Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Steph from Dick Diver and a rhythm section of members from Teen Archer and The Twerps, you know right away this band will be great. Their music is rich with good time summer vibes, listening to it makes me wanna get out of the house more during the daytime and generally be less of a shitty person. A band that can inspire that kinda positivity without coming across as lame is definitely awesome.
