Queenscliff Music Festival 2010 - Friday

Frank Yamma, Izzy, Katie Noonan & The Captains, Mr Percival, Ashleigh Mannix, The Black Sorrows
26th November 2010

I had been looking forward to the festival for months and unlike other years I had been working in the months leading up to the festival so I didn't have to worry about not having any money to make it down this time. I probably should have booked accommodation a lot earlier so I could have stayed down on the Bellarine Peninsula, but I was already having two days off work and luckily was offered somewhere to stay near Geelong thanks to Narelle.

Like the last few years I ended up in Geelong for a few hours on Friday afternoon and had lunch at Cafe Rio (they've done it up) and walked around the city.

There were some big changes at the festival this year due to having a new festival director, it is good to have a change from time to time and hopefully it works out well for the festival.

I hadn't seen Frank Yamma before, but I thought he was great and it was an excellent act to have start the festival.

I did want to have a look at least one of the foot in the door acts and managed to catch a few songs by Izzy before going over to do the same for Katie Noonan and the Captains. I thought they both played well.

Even though I wasn't planning on going to see him, the Dancing Goat Coffee crew thought the photo for Mr Percival with all the microphones looked funny and recommended him to me. I was glad I went and he was a popular act during the festival.

As I hadn't seen her since last year, I made a point of going to see Ashleigh Mannix even though I knew I wouldn't be able to get back into Fishnets to see Vika and Linda (I had seen them already this year at the Caravan Music Club), it was great to see Ashleigh play again and she had a very busy weekend doing seven performances over the three days.

Ending the night for me were the Black Sorrows who put on a great show and made we want to come back for the next two days. Thanks to the bus driver who dropped me off out the front of the Barwon Club as he was going back to the depot in Breakwater.
