Flying Lotus, Gaslamp Killer & Hermitude @ The Tivoli, Brisbane.

To Bluntly put it - this gig was… BAM!

With three exceptional artists in one of Brisbane’s best venues (The Tivoli), it was pretty safe to assume that I was in for a good night.

Sadly, Hudson Mohawke broke his foot and was unable to attend, so to fill in the big space was none other than Hermitude - one of Australia’s best beat makers/performers. They did not disappoint.

The Gaslamp Killer… I struggle to put this man into words. He owns his shit. He walks on stage and embodies the strength of the fat, delectable beats he lays down and OWNS it. Almost as if he is possessed by the very vibrations that the music is putting out. His energy was infectious, most of the crowd were wide-eyed and feeding off it, dancing harder and harder. He has to be one of my favourite people to shoot live. He is both equally exciting and fascinating to watch.

Flying Lotus seemed subdued compared to the onslaught from the Gaslamp Killer. Unfortunately FlyLo’s computer crashed and he lost a lot of data BUT the majority was saved BUT I believe it meant he had to rebuild his set in a matter of hours. Considering all of this, he tackled it with grace and laughter and most of the crowd didn’t even realise this was the case. So kudos.
