Farewell Blind Valley
Last weekend, on a quiet, industrial street in Marrickville, in a small, nondescript warehouse, there was one hell of a party going on. Sydney rockers Blind Valley were throwing one last party before their drummer Paris.G bounces across to the states and the band sadly calls it a day.
They invited a bunch of their friends to fill the bill, namely The Mountains, Particles, The Lulu Rae’s, Hollow Bones, Tsars and Cabins. Then BV finally hit the stage around 10:30 for the very last time. The vibe was by no means mellow though. The small smoky space, walls covered in art, and couches scattered about, was filled with great vibes and people having a really good time. There were skateboards flying in the halfpipe down the back, people crowd surfing, a guy dressed as a cockroach and plenty of liquid loving.
If you were unlucky enough to miss out, console yourself with Blind Valley’s ‘Queen Of My
