Midlake, yes Midlake. Internationally famous folk rockers. “Umm so how about just before sound check?” “Yes” “Great, see you then.” Waaaaaoooow. Sideshow Alley is now excited. But wait. Just before sound check, on a Monday? That’s like 3pm. Gulp. Most of the sideshow crew have day jobs……
But with a few long lunches, unscheduled ahhh “meetings” we had a crew. But only four cameras. And a very minimal lens choice. At least our new audio recording setup – as road tested with the Mourning Sons – is ready to deliver amazingness.
A back stage meeting, a walk through the sunshine, then a quiet gathering in a St Kilda alley. With bass and percussion working on some technical issues back at the venue, we were treated to an amazing triple guitar + flute moment. Straight outta Texas.
