Fashion should be fun and with my photography I love to create those fun moments.
Live gigs and university students go hand in hand (with a few schooners of beer of course). For the next installment of my collaboration with MARCS and ARIA, I met up with Mitchell, a Medicine Student at ANU Canberra, for a chat about Canberra’s music scene. Mitchell is wearing the Bliss n Eso T-shirt by MARCS. What do you prefer, a live band or a DJ? – Definitely a live band. There is a great live band scene down in Canberra, but unfortunately a lot of the ‘bigger’ bands don’t get down there. It’s like they are told to skip Canberra and go straight to Jindabyne. We’ve got awesome live venues though; small but good. Plus there’s always an energetic crowd that’s looking for a good night. What was the last band you saw perform? – Last Monday I saw The Brass Knuckle Brass Band at the Phoenix in Canberra. Was a great gig. Everyone was up on their feet. Do you remember your first band T-shirt? – Yes, it was for Rise Against. I’ve still got it, even though it’s a bit too small for me now. What’s your favourite album of all time? – Probably The Sufferer & The Witness by Rise Against. The Good Left Undone is a killer track. What makes a great band T-shirt? – Something that is unique. Unique but simple. And obviously it has to represent the band – maybe in an abstract way. I don’t want to wear a piece of advertising, so it has to be like a code that only other fans would recognise. This project is a collaboration with iconic Australian fashion brand MARCS and ARIA (Australian Record Industry Association). MARCS has launched five limited edition band t-shirts, all designed to support the #UnitedByMusic campaign. Let’s support our home grown Aussie music!
