Live Review: Gypsy and The Cat + Clubfeet + Georgia Potter - The HiFi, Brisbane (07.06.13)

Gypsy and The Cat

Tonight’s headline performance by Gypsy and The Cat was organised by mobile phone company, HTC for reasons that weren’t exactly made clear. Perhaps the giant, fluorescent phones placed strategically around the HiFi were supposed to entice the crowd into purchasing a new phone the second they left the concert. Maybe the elevated mood experienced by attending the concert would ‘subconsciously’ make everyone realise how cool HTC were. In reality, the whole promotion was a bit daggy and screamed desperation. The ‘hip-ness’ of HTC aside, what actually took place that evening was a fun night of electro, indie dance music with some great support from local act, Georgia Potter, and Melbourne’s Clubfeet.

Live Review: Tegan and Sara + Clubfeet - Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide (07.05.13)

You can tell when a show hasn’t sold well at the Thebarton Theatre; the seated area is halved by a black curtain and the large floor space look barely full even there is a decent few hundred people littered throughout it. Canadian sister act Tegan and Sara are in town tonight and it’s beyond me why this show hasn’t sold more tickets; having scored a spot on the popular Groovin’ The Moo Festival as well as a lucrative gig at the Sydney Opera House, the twins unfortunately fell victim to Adelaide-on-a-weeknight-itis.

Live Review: Tegan And Sara + Clubfeet - The Tivoli (29.04.13)

Being straight and male leaves you in an incredibly disconcerted minority at a Tegan and Sara concert and such is the situation I found myself in at the Tivoli on Tuesday night. I have always known of their strong LGBT following but only at their show did I really understand that, more than just making great music, they make music which means so much to so many people.

Photo Gallery: Tegan and Sara + Clubfeet - The Tivoli (30.04.13)

Tegan and Sara brought their national tour to Brisbane's Tivoli, supported by Clubfeet. Heath Carney brings us these photos from the night.
