Fundraising - Soundwave Festival 2015 Brisbane - Day 2

Day 2 of Soundwave 2015, and Damian with a sense of deja vu parked in the same spot he had on Saturday...

He was meant to have Kate with him to help out, however she had messaged Damian to let him know she wasn't well, therefore couldn't make it...

Deja vu all over again!!

Finding the gates closed at the volunteer entrance, Damian found himself backstage in the artist area drinking coffee!!  Sometimes it's not what you know, but who you know!!

A coach load of artists arrived from Sydney... Damian respected their privacy by not taking photos of them once they entered the building...  It's the little things!!

Time to get cracking in the signing tent, writing out the tickets.

The rest of the ticket writers!!

Through the magic of the interwebs, they are all finished!!

The signing tent entry was set up in a snake/zig-zag pattern in preparation for the rush for tickets for Gerard Way (lead singer of My Chemical Romance), who is very popular amongst the young people!!

Always time for a quick selfie!!

The ticket rush came and went, but no photos were managed... Here's Raglans - the first band through the signing tent!!

More bands came and went, including this one signing... errm... best to leave that to your imagination!!

Oh dear - this band is signing a bra!!

Ne Obliviscaris arrived, with a rather large python in tow!!

Kel loves snakes, and had a little play...

Damian doesn't, but still posed (very nervously) for a photo, much to the amusement of the others in the signing tent!!

Damian got one of the girls to man the ticket sales for a while and ducked over to Steel Panther to catch a few songs...

If you've never seen Steel Panther in concert - go for it!!

Certainly not a show for kids, but the on-stage banter was hilarious!!

Bringing 80's glam rock back one set at a time!!


The crowd are loving it!!

Damian's having a great time too!!

And what 80's hair band would be complete without some air-blowing through their hair!!

Back in the signing tent, more bands came through...

Gerard Way was very softly spoken and polite to his adoring fans...

This poor girl had some trouble with one of her red contact lenses - Damian thought it made for a great photo!!

Atreyu - another very popular band today!!

The fans line up for the last of the sold-out bands for Soundwave Brisbane!!

The Color Morale signed, and their lead singer was a dead-set legend!!  He spoke for a long time with his fans, dishing out hugs and encouraging words to some clearly distressed young people...

The signing tent was finished for another year, so it was time for the gun crew of the signing tent in Brisbane to pose for a jazz-hands selfie!!

So how much money was raised, you ask?  Sunday in the signing tent, a total of $1802.45 was raised, bringing the grand total for Soundwave Brisbane to...


This amazing total is another record, and brings Damian's 2015 fundraising total tantalisingly close to the $10000 mark!!
