Zo Damage 365 Day Project
Week 44 was pretty crazy and to say that finding a gig on Christmas Day was challenging is an understatement. After discovering that two venues that advertised live bands for the day had cancelled the shows it was The Curtin and an amazing SMS received on the tram ride home inviting me to a Christmas Day house party that saved the day! Stoked to finally have a house party in the project too! Week 44 of my 365 Day Project features Dusty Ravens at The Retreat, Even for the Even Christmas Party at The Corner, Jurassic Nark at The Tote, soul jams at The Curtin, an epic house party in Northcote Toga Rock, Fuck The Fitzroy Doom Scene at Ding Dong Lounge, Her Majesty's Hangover at The Old Bar and Draught Dodgers for the Cherry Awards at Cherry Bar. It is now 9.30pm on New Year's Eve … time to head to a gig! All the very best for 2017 folks and thanks for your rad support over this year. You seriously rule.
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.
