Another boring Thursday night calls for the perfect opportunity for a great night of live music and what better way to do that than having two talented bands play great sets at the Lansdowne.
Marking a return to gigs in the Warehouse at the Cambridge Hotel, The Buoys return to Newcastle with a bang supported by local favourites Mission: Banana.
This is punk. It is honest, relentless and draws both social criticism and reflection. The type of music that makes you sit back and think about the world around you.
This past weekend the Civic Theatre played host to a fantastic lineup of Newcastle’s finest bands all thanks to Newcastle Music Collective. It’s a beautiful venue to enjoy live music at, the way the stage lights illuminate the ceiling is grand.
A set that was full of energy, really well performed songs, enjoyably awkward banter between the members, and easily one of the best shows I’ve been to in a while.
When you scratch the surface of Fangz there is an undeniable duality to them, they are a band for good times, their music is fun, catchy and you could play it just about anywhere to get a group of people hyped.
I have issues confronting my true feelings in some situations… I need something that gets everything down in black and white.
Their personalities really gave me a sense of how genuine the band is. Sitting in the greenroom, before the band went onstage, I noted their chill presence as they joke “we don’t really have a before show ritual aye” they laugh as they calmly walk onstage ready to perform.
While things still aren’t quite right, watching the Camino Gold boys play while the crowd danced in their seats and one punter threw ice from his glass towards the stage, it felt as close as we can get to normal.
The world may be in a weird place, but there is nothing but good vibes in the room on this night.
