Zo Damage 365 Day Project
This week was a big one with 20 December marking Day 300 of my 365 Day Project! Despite the world being in the throws of pre-Christmas madness, the live music scene, albeit somewhat subdued, held its ground. Week 43 features Keggin and the mighty Spacejunk sets at Last Chance Bar, humour and Sex Falcons with DJ Purple Duck at Yah Yah's, the brilliance of Howl At The Moon at The Old Bar, Cool Sounds for Monday Night Mass at Northcote Social Club, improv gold with the Make It Up Club at Bar Open, and Reuben Stone performing amidst the madness of Christmas shopping and general mayhem of the Bourke St Mall.
On 25 February 2016 Zo committed to photographing a band or more every day for a full year with her 365 Day [Live Music Photography] Project. As 2016 was a leap year Zo photographed each of the 366 days, successfully completing her unprecedented project on 24 February 2017.
Zo's book The Damage Report, released in August 2017, celebrates the successful completion of her 365 Day Project, offering an insightful look into live music culture from the perspective of the scene itself.
