It’s incredibly sad to see the Phoenix Public House closing its doors this week. The venue quickly established itself as a powerhouse of live music in the north and in its short life span has played host to a plethora of amazing gigs and has been responsible for many raucous nights, bad dancing, painful hangovers and endless random bruises. Thanks for the good times Paris Martine & Co. Sydney Rd will not be the same without you.
A handful of punters gathered early to watch local four piece Tehachapi warming the stage. Those who arrived late deprived themselves of a sensory feast as Tehachapi put on an amazing display of aural and visual delights. Front man Costa Stefanou’s awkward banter was offset by his incredibly intense presence as the band worked seamlessly together to create an intoxicating whirl of sound that was all encompassing.
