Gertrude St Projections and The Good China

The annual Gertrude Street Projection Festival is currently on through this weekend, featuring a wide array of light projections on buildings and other objects throughout Gertrude Street in Fitzroy.  Last night was the first time I had been, and it was great to walk down the street and discover the different projections.  Here are a few of my favorites:

After checking out the Festival I walked up Brunswick Street to The Evelyn Hotel to catch The Good China play.  They started their set with "No More Maps, No More Roads," which allowed for some hand clapping fun.  We got to hear some of the new songs they have been working on as well as their recent single "You Looked Better A Brunette."  Mit sang lead on an awesome cover of The Temper Trap's "Sweet Disposition" and they finished their 40 minute set with the appropriately titled "We Knew That We Had To Leave."  It was good to see the Chinas live again and I am hopeful that their debut album isn't too far off.

Here's the video for "You Looked Better A Brunette" which was shot in Japan.
