Jo & Her Gnomes (+7 Musical Insights)

/ Tuesday /
Leave two girls alone in a house in the suburbs and this is the result. I've always wanted to try doing "victory curls" and my best friend Jo has the most perfect hair for just about anything. These shots are the result of a very improptu shoot- you can tell cause we're in her backyard. Thank god for her collection of gnomes to make it more fun!

On another note, the lovely Hila from le projet d'amour has tagged me in a versatile blogger award. Yay! Part of the award includes sharing 7 things about me and passing it on, so here goes, hello to Jess, Rozie, Sam & Maria cause you're tagged!

So 7 things about me? I've decided to give you some musical insight...

:: My top three gigs of all time (in order) are: George Michael @ The SCG in 2010, Supermayer @ Home in 2008, and DJ Shadow @ The Hordern in 2006.

:: My first concert was at Newcastle Workers Club to see Girlfriend (who still holds a special place in my heart. My favourite was Melanie, who was yours?) my first real concert was seeing Powderfinger at The Forum in 2001.

:: My go to “happy place” when I’m stressed or anxious is a dark, intimate club with loud techno (that’s not packed). Preferably Civic Underground or Marrickville Bowls. I'm also not sleepy or hungry.

:: I once got up on stage and danced with De La Soul. Obviously when I was younger and thought I was hotter.

:: I had always wanted to cut my hair into a chinadoll bob but never had the balls to until I saw Bic Runga with the cut for her Birds album. Check out Say After Me, gush!

:: I once yelled at a promoter for “the shittest gig ever”- when K-Ci and Jojo played at The Metro and were so trashed they could hardly stand up straight. This was when I was younger too.

:: I’m a sound nazi at gigs, if it’s anything less then decent I’m the first to start whinge about it!

I'm off too swoon over Bic Runga now. Have a great day!
