Taking my seat just as the lights went down for support act, Perth lads Birds of Tokyo, I was keen to see how they would go about it and how stuff from their most recent album March Fires would go down live. I saw them at BDO 2011 and had a great time during their set (maybe as much for the girl on my shoulders as anything, although my back was never the same), and watching Ian Kenny on stage would have to be one of my favourite things to do. The man has got so much energy and has amazing stage presence; I can’t wait to one day see him out the front of his harder-rockin’, alternate personality outfit, Karnivool.
