R.I.P Society's Success Summit at the Annandale Hotel, 03/10/10

Okay, first let me be out with it and tell you who played: Carborator, Whores, Blank Realm (Brisbane), Boomgates (Melbourne), Royal Headache, Woollen Kits (Melbourne), and Zond (Melbourne). Let me also be out with the statement that every single band was on top of their game and this was a totally cracking mini-festival-thing - I even enjoyed Carborator this time around. I don't want to be one of those people that can't criticise anything, but really, this was a treat. My favourites of the night probably were Blank Realm who I just cannot help but be in awe of, and Zond who 'slayed' if I am allowed to use that word. I'm fairly sure they just destroyed everyone in the best way possible with their wall of sound. Both are bands I have seen before and both beat my incredibly high expectations of them - even surprised me with how fucking excellent they were. Honourable mention to Boomgates, the new Melbourne super-group (with a pedigree of Dick Diver, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, The Twerps, and Teen Archer you'd almost expect competing egos, but it seems to work really nicely) who play the catchiest summer-jam pop songs.

Overall I'd say a grand success indeed. Pretty sure Eternal Soundcheck should have some videos up soon.
