So we all know that I haven’t been blogging for a while. In an attempt to make amends, I’m going to post a series of short “Things you missed while I wasn’t blogging” posts that recaps what I’ve been up to/listening to in the last while. Enjoy this peace offering.
Things you missed while I wasn’t blogging #1: Timothy Carroll at the Brisbane Powerhouse
I managed to catch Timothy Carroll performing a free show at the Brisbane Powerhouse back during his month-long “Friday Residency” at the spot, and the show was freaking amazing.
Seriously, I’m going to call this one of my favourite gigs of the last few years. And, considering it was free and fairly intimate, I don’t think that’s an overstatement.
For those who haven’t seen Timothy Carroll perform live before, get in quick: he mentioned on that night that he’s planning on moving back to Sweden in July of this year, so if you see he’s performing in your area, make sure you grab the chance to see him. A month later, I’m still not quite sure how to describe it… but there’s something special about the guy. When you see him up on stage performing… I don’t want to call it a glow, because that’s just cheesy; but there’s definitely a light there. And you need to see it to believe it.
I managed to get some clips (of questionable quality) of the night. Here’s one of Tim and the band performing on of my favourite tunes of his, “Danshyttan”.

And, finally, a rendition of “Sad Man” that completely blew me away…
