gotye remix, opera house & upcoming time shield gigs

Published on August 26, 2011

hey folks

i’ve been busy

i’ve remixed a song by gotye called “somebody that i used to know”

Gotye – Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra) (Faux Pas remix) by Faux Pas

speaking of gotye, i had the pleasure last weekend of playing on the stage of the concert hall of the sydney opera house as part of the debut of his 10-piece band. its such a joy to be part of this awesome group of people. for the rest of my life i can point at the opera house and say “i did a gig there”

thanks to gotye VJ and super-friend jean poole (aka sean healy) for the photos – for more photos and a behind-the-scenes wrap up, check out sean’s always educational blog

speaking of sean, he is the man that has taught me all i know about VDMX/visuals, so he is to blame for a lot of the projector tomfoolery that i am incorporating into my time shield live shows. i’ve got a few gigs coming up that you might want to come along to if you are in melbourne:

Friday August 27 @ The Workers Club

Sunday August 29 @ Grace Darling Hotel

Friday September 9 @ Grace Darling Hotel

Friday September 16 @ Buffalo Club/ROABGAB

if you haven’t been to a time shield show… its sort of like this…

and its sort of like this…

oh yeah and i also wrote a photo essay called “time shield vs leather jacket dude” which you might enjoy

til next time

  1. I have become really sick of this Gotye song because it is being played on the radio every other minute, but your remix is brilliant! It was like a fresh breath of air. I went to your gig once and I have to say your mixes are really good and vibey.
