The night starts to pick up. Smoke break. You quickly look up the band you just saw on Facebook. Only 200 likes. You think it’s a bloody outrage. Click that like button. Beer. The second band comes on. Also great. Things start looking up. Smoke break. Beer. Third band. Great. By this point, you’re reeling for the headline.
Then they come on. Room packs. Wait how big are these guys? The first chord rings out. It’s more than you imagined. Everyone knows the words but you. Move lips vaguely. Toilet break. Beer. Miss the first half of the second last song. Night ends. You go home. And to think you weren’t going to go out tonight.
Edith Lane, Way Shit, Erin Will Be Mad and Yakumbabe present a very good gig. It will be good! Very good in fact! So good that you will enjoy it and think “wow what a very good gig that was”
