What an amazing gig from this New Zealand band consisting of four brothers. Certain people are blessed with different talents and islander people are blessed with beautiful voices and musical skills. The punters were largely expat Kiwis who were eager to let anyone who would listen know that these guys were it.
There were constant instrument changes amongst the members of the band and various vocal leads. Overall, an amazing gig which should place them on better ground for their next Australian tour.

Day two of Sunset Sounds 2011 arrives, bringing with it steady rain and a forecast of nothing but. Organisers have spread sand over some of the affected areas, but when I arrive on Thursday afternoon the damage that the combination of thousands of feet and a whole lot of rain did to the grounds yesterday is easily apparent. Areas that were grassy are now plains of squelchy mud ready to snatch unsuspecting thongs from feet and disappear them forever and the paths we traversed yesterday are now boasting small streams of rainwater.

|Canada – be warned! The Resignators are on their way to tour the hell out of your damn fine country. But before they do, the Melbourne ska outfit will hit the road in Australia to cause a ruckus, raise some funds, and share some dirty, old fashioned, good times with their fellow natives.
As one of Australia’s hardest working independent bands, The Resignators have seen it all. Playing over 400 shows both nationally and internationally including extensive tours of the USA and CanadaSXSW in 2009, this road hardened mob know how to get any room of people on their feet, skanking to their ska infused beats.

|The afternoon of Friday January 7, 2011, had been a classically humid one for Brisbane. Undoubtedly much unlike the weather English pop-rock group Mystery Jets are accustomed to finding at home in Eel Pie Island, the heavens opened on the evening that they were set to play the city’s Hi-Fi Bar with local support Tin Can Radio. Not even off-putting weather, however, could dampen the splendid performance they gave, the memory of the night burnt into fans’ consciousness for a long time to come.|
Brisbane’s Hi-Fi Bar was only sparsely occupied as Tin Can Radio took to the stage. Merry and casual, they took their time setting up, waiting while the drummer’s girlfriend rushed in with a forgotten cymbal. Regardless of the meagre crowd, the five bought out their characteristic liveliness and played a short but ferocious set that in the end had the audience on their feet and clapping along.
