Killing Heidi, Tumbalong Park

After checking out the Northside Produce Market, we headed back over the Bridge to check out the Killing Heidi gig at Darling Harbour's Tumbalong Park. Not only did we get a free concert, but we also (apparently) got into the Book of Alternative Records for the world's biggest air guitar gathering.

Current New South Wales Air Guitar Champion, Darrin "Jimmy Dangles" Smith

A tough act to follow, but Killing Heidi took to the stage with youthful exuberance. They've grown older, their dreadlocks are gone and their sound has matured a little since they first shot to fame as 15-year-olds. Sure they're still kinda teeny-bopper pop-rock but I've still got a soft spot for them...

Jesse Hooper (guitar)

Warren Jenkin (bass)

Ella Hooper (voice)

Adam Pedretti (drums)

And aw... ain't they sweet--they even stuck around for 20 minutes for autographs (yes I got them all).

    Hi Juji - Yeah that's what we thought. She looked much better, esp complexion-wise, with black hair.

    Hi Angelique and all the anonymous commenters - Thanks for your comments and welcome to my blog. I was pleasantly surprised to see this site mentioned on a KH discussion forum. I hope that some of you are foodies too!

    KH were very cool. They were very approachable and friendly to the crowd. Here's to them conquering Europe and the States!
