It’s been a month since Last Dinosaurs released their sophomore studio album Wellness. To pay it forward, these indie rockers have kicked off their Australian tour in Brisbane, inviting along their dedicated and loyal fan base; something about their sound and lyrics seem to emanate with Australia’s younger listeners. To appreciate that faithfulness, Last Dinosaurs even put on a specifically Under 18’s show at The Triffid earlier that day, tactfully timed with school holidays. Being the cynical, jaded writers we are, we came along to the 18+ show later that night.
