Karnivool

I’ve almost lost count of the number of times I’ve seen Karnivool live. Actually that’s not true; it’s only three, with Friday night’s gig at The Tivoli being the third. This time they were touring on their “Melodias Frescas” (i.e. “Fresh Tunes”) tour, which logically you’d think means they were going to be playing a boatload of new music. Not so! I think I only heard four new tracks on the set list! But in truth I wasn’t complaining; the album Sound Awake is surely one of the greatest progressive rock albums out there at the moment, and they do an amazing job of performing it live.

Anyway – here’s a blurry photo of some people standing on a stage of lights, which surely proves that Stu, Rob, and I were there:

As much as I loved Karnivool’s performance, the biggest win of the night for me was the opening act – sleepmakeswaves – an instrumental post-rock outfit from Sydney. They were amazing! Their style of music complimented Karnivool perfectly, and we all enjoyed their short set thoroughly. Definitely worth checking out if you like your tunes on the heavier side, and you’re in the mood for trying something new.
