Thursday and the 6th day of Gigmas
Regular readers will by now know my thoughts on the Crowbar very well. It’s even worse when it’s packed as unless you’re in the first couple of rows, you can’t see anything. The stage is too low because the ceiling is too low. If tonight isn’t a sell out, it must be pretty close to it. It’s a surprise to me as until saw them advertised as playing here, I’d never heard of them. Doing some research on the bands playing Meredith sideshows in Brisbane this week, I really liked what I was hearing, they reminded me of the early Alice Cooper, when Alice Cooper was the name of the band, not just the singing guy. Those albums, the run from Love It To Death through to Billion Dollar Babies, taking in Killer and School’s Out are some of my favourite rock albums.
Sadly, as good as the songs are, they’re terrible to photograph in this environment. It’s not quite My Disco terrible but not too far away from it.
As well as really enjoying listening to them, I also really loved some of the merch they had on their website and had every intention of buying something but they didn’t bring any of the t shirts I really liked with them. Hopefully there’ll be a next time in Brisbane at a different venue and with a larger merch display.
