Tonight, or rather last night in Australia, eather way Nov. 27 - ARIA had their 25th annual awards for recognizing excellence and innovation across all genres of Australian music. Happily - my buddies Art Vs Science took home the award for Best Indie Release for their brilliant album, and one I personally listen to at least once a week - "The Experiment".
Now that this year is winding down and I have some time to relax and reflect, I have to say that the time I spent with these 3 guys was the highlight of my year. I went from taking a chance on a band I did not know by booking them on my SXSW showcase, to being totally inspired and in love with each one of them. From SXSW in March to Ausust tour to October shows, it is safe to say that their charm and ability to have a good time no matter the situation sets a high standard of awesomeness in the great book of my life!
It may be a while before I see my friends again, but I send all the love to them, and cant wait for next time!!
Well done boys!!
Here is a live video of their performance on the ARIA's 2011!
