You can imagine how shocked they’d have been this past Saturday when Oxford Square was flooded with hundreds of music enthusiasts, transforming the street into the new music festival to keep an eye on, VOLUMES.

Oh Darwin Festival thank you! Thank you for programming one of the best live rock bands in the country. And thank you for having a venue that lets us get close enough to appreciate the magic and the mess, the despair and the desire, the songs and the spit of The Drones.

A gorgeous night of live Territory music, check out the photos from The AU Review #dfest15 photographer Amy Hetherington.
