Perfect Sound Forever

Intermittent internet access and ridiculously busy day jobs have meant we’re a bit behind with updates here. It’s been over a week since we had a lovely afternoon and evening of fine food and our favourite music at The Victoria, but I wanted to give you an idea of what we played. As much as we love putting on live music, there’s nothing like mentally organising the songs you love into a mix and playing them for other people in a wonderful space. Who knows, we might make this a regular thing.


We feel so comfortable at The Victoria, in part because the building itself has a homely, inviting atmosphere, but also because it’s run by staff who really care about it being a great venue. If you’re ever looking for nice food, a quiet drink or a plethora of great DJs and bands, check it out.
