We had a fantastic Saturday night at Premier Function Center, Taralgon for the Freeza Battle Of The Bands. Max was on the judging panel. 5 of Latrobe region’s best acts played their hearts out for a chance at state finals. The competition was pretty fierce. I couldn’t separate my favourites. Max & I had an agreement – I wasn’t allowed to talk to her about decision-making til the night was done. Darcy Fox took the honours. She came armed with an acoustic guitar, a beautiful voice & a loop pedal. The songs moved back and forth from sparseness to wall-of-sound. An amazingly talented artist. You’ve gotta have razor-sharp timing and nerves of steel to do what she did. And she did it as though it was all second nature. Definitely an artist with a huge future.

We were still pumped after the event & decided to wind down by driving back to Melbourne, instead of staying the night like we’d planned.

Great & inspiring to see so many young people with so much talent.

Fires out.
