Going through some of the photos I took at various concerts in 2022, and am picking out some real winners. Here's @tearsforfears at Jones Beach.

Time to start a regular Friday #ClimateRocks thread. Songs I've been listening to over the last few years that address climate change in some way. First up has to be...
Seasons End by #Marillion. Incredibly, it was written in 1988 - the first I ever heard climate change referenced in a song. Love the guitar solo, but the lyrics are what makes this truly sublime: "We'll tell our children's children why..."
There's also a reference to the ozone hole there:
"We grew so tall and reached so high
We left our footprints in the earth
And punched a hole right through the sky"

Taking the kids to the band I grew up with!

#MidnightOil #ReconciliationDay Image
...and it was incredible. They were just amazing.

The last time I heard a band so on fire was decades ago... ...probably the Oils at the ANU bar (with Hunters & Collectors as the support act!).

A fantastic tribute to #ReconciliationDay.
Opened with Lucky Country, closed with My Country, went through entirety of Diesel & Dust, with plenty of Postcard & 10...1 & lots more in between.

I feel very satisfied indeed.
