LIVE: Witchuals and Kutomo at High Street Project

Me and 8 other folks caught a lovely show at High Street Project last night. I turned up on time at 8pm to the usual message; wouldn’t be starting for a while yet so Rory from Witchuals, plus the Finnish guy Veli-Matti walked down to South City for some food and booze, talking about Earthquakes and Brisbane’s floods (as Veli-Matti has been living there).

Witchuals, originally uploaded by fraew.

Witchuals is the latest name for Rory and Shannon’s junk noise, vocal play with dictaphones and percussion performances. Really cool stuff, got some on video which i might upload later.

Veli-Matti then played a few songs as Kutomo using a loop station, guitar, nice lil casio keyboard and some wind instruments. Fairly down-beat but nice stuff, which he book-ended with awkward descriptions of their meaning.

Beverage of the night was Rochdale Ginger Cider, which at 8% hits more like a scrumpy but tastes pretty great.
