I saw Battles last night at the East Brunswick Club and it was fantastic, I expected alot and got what I expected. Highlights of the show were Atlas (of course), Tonto, Hi / Lo & Tras, which coincidently are some of my favourite tracks off the EP C / B EP compilation and the Mirrored LP. I attended the gig with a friend of mine who was on a short visit from Japan, having introduced him to the bands music a few days earlier he was equally impressed with the performance. We had a short conversation with Battles guitarist, keyboardist and vocalist Tyondai Braxton and he informed us that the group were on their way to Japan after a visit to Brisbane. So my friend Cameron will hopefully see them again Saturday night, and I'm jealous, but i'll get over it. I took some shitty photo's last night, the one below is BATTLES written in some form of Japanese, thanks to Cameron for pointing that one out.
