- I liked the Metro show, but I think I liked the Annandale show more...it
just had more atmosphere. Don't know if it was the size of the stage,
but it just seemed a bit cold and impersonal. The air conditioning DID
give me sore throat though.
* Glenn hitting his head on the microphone in an attempt to pull off a
suave rock move, getting embarrassed and then forgetting some of the
words to the song he was singing ('Heartbeat and Sails'? Can't really
* Edmond's bass improv during something (I was tired, so don't remember
* Augie going post-rock at the end of 'Future Seal' and adding in
* Dave's seriously 'cool' suspenders. One friend commented that he
looked like he should be at Old Sydney Town.
* The beautiful ending of 'Charlie' with Glenn's voice just echoing
around the Metro, breaking like a teenage boys, and getting embarrassed
* The sign "It is Friday and you are in Sydney" posted at the back of
the stage, which Dave put on himself when him and Glenn performed TINSP.
* 'Century Son,' of course, since it is always good to see the guys pull
out such a classic and 'prostitute' themselves.
I think there were many more little things that I liked/remembered from
the gig, but can't remember them right now. Darren Hanlon was really
good. I think Dave and Darren should team up and do a comdey duo
tour...it would surely sell out.
I really enjoyed the gig, but for me, it just lacked 'something'. Maybe
I was just too tired to fully appreciate the gig. It was nice to see so
many people there to see Augie. They've taken on the Metro...what will
be next? The Horden? The Entertainment Centre? The WORLD??
