Last night I turned 23. Sure, it wasn’t a milestone year to be celebrated, but all the same, I felt the need to be partying and party hard I did. As if the powers that be were switched on, it just so happened that the Adelaide stop of Yacht Club DJs’ “Mayhem Tour” fell on my birthday and once I had found this out, well, I knew where I would inevitably end up.

It's a big week here in Sydney. Every night there seem to be dozens of bands playing sideshows from their Falls, Field Day, Southbound, Peats and Woodford appearances - and there simply aren't enough people in this city to fill every venue with a $50 ticket. Unfortunately this meant that the crowds were not out in force for Blood Red Shoes, but the fans who were there were treated to a phenomenal show - and fans they were, singing along to just about every word of every song.
