The recent Isaiah Mitchell with Seedy Jeezus ‘Under The Influence’ Australian Tour was such a unique one that we thought we’d do a post including all the songs that they covered together, along with an incredible photo gallery from Melbourne’s Stephen Boxshall.

The idea behind the tour was to “give fans of Isaiah a chance to see him play songs that have influenced him as a musician since he first picked up a guitar at the age of 8. After performing their own set of blistering psych freakout, Seedy Jeezus will be Isaiah’s backing band as he works through songs from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s.”

It was an incredible experience to hear so many amazing songs performed by musicians that have been impacted by them. A lot of the songs people knew, and some were new and great introductions to various legendary bands well worth checking out. Below is the complete set list from each gig that they played on the tour.

Held at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton, Melbourne, the annual event held over the Anzac long weekend plays host to over 240 of the top tattoo artists from Australia and around the world. 2015 saw more tattoo booths as well as artists, clothing, airbrushing, stores, food and the amazing Sea Shepherd crew.

Fridays are usually a great warm up as so many people are still working and attend on the weekend. It’s a good time to be able to chat to the artists not booked out as many only take walk ups at the event or have Saturdays and Sundays booked. By the time Saturday lunch time came round though it was crazy! The walk ways were like peak hour at Flinders Station, which can make it a little difficult at times to catch a glimpse of some of the main draw cards but to be honest, it also contributes to the excitement and buzz.
