Audio Blood, an artist and brand development company, held their 4th anniversary party at Sneaky Dee's, and aside from being packed with great people (and perhaps just a wee bit out of control), it also featured sets by Amos The Transparent (a personal favourite), Hands and Teeth, and Rajiv Thavanathan's latest project Secret Connection.
Great music, good friends, and lots of fun are basically what I can remember, along with the fantastic drink prices. Each turn in the evening just brought more good times. My memory of the night is not nearly clear enough to write a fair review of the bands, but I can say that all performances were spirited.
There are, however, a few things I have to mention about the Amos The Transparent set. Jonathan Chandler (vocals, guitar) had mostly lost his voice, but that didn't stop the show, with the rest of the band filling in lead vocals as neccesary. As it turned out, it was an important night for the band — just before the performance of fan favourite "Greater Than Consequence", Mark Hyne (guitar, vocals) announced that he would be moving on. As the song came near it's end, Mark stepped off stage and sang the big finish along with, and surrounded by, friends and fans. A memorable moment for sure.
