Carbie Warbie is one of Tone Deaf’s favourite sons. Not only is he one of Australia’s most legendary rock photographers, he’s also one of the nicest guys in the music business. We first met him several years ago (at a gig – where else???) and he’s since gone on to be one of our favourite photographers.
Not only has he shot the likes of U2, Jay-Z, Muse and Bon Jovi for us, he also thinks nothing of going and snapping shots of some of the country’s most promising bands at 2am gigs at Pony and shedding a bucketload of sweat as bands hone their chops at Ding Dong, The Espy, The Tote, The Lyrebird Lounge or Cherry Bar in Melbourne.
Hence we’re incredibly proud to present his first ever exhibition of photos – funnily enough entitled a RockHibition! It features some of the amazing shots that have made him one of the most acclaimed photographers in the country on the walls. If you’re in Melbourne it’s on at Revolver on Chapel St Prahran on Australia Day. Not only will stunning photos be on display which cover a who’s who of Australian and international rock acts – Carbie has personally invited a whole bunch of bands to come and play to make sure the event goes off with a proper rock n’ roll bang!
Headliners Skinwalkers (QLD) are the next ‘watch this space’ band, and will travel from the Gold Coast to play their first interstate show especially for the event. Joining them will be the most dangerous and unpredictable band in Melbourne, Bitter Sweet Kicks, Jason Evans’ new project Threesome, the very rocking Vice Grip Pussies and the rock n’ roll icon that is Kim Volkman.
Topping this whole night off will be the legendary rock journo TJ Honeysuckle playing a collection of rare Aussie punk recordings on vinyl from 10-midnight, followed by Magic Dirt’s Adalita spinning until morning. You’re all urged to get down from 5pm on Australia Day Wednesday 26th January and be a part of Australian rock n’ roll history!
