Thursday evening saw Death Cab for Cutie play the final show of their Australian tour, their first since 2012, at Perth’s Metro City. An event that saw certain OC memes flood social media in the days and weeks running up to the gig.

Perth, being the most isolated capital city tends to find itself playing host to a lot touring bands playing their final shows of any given tour; especially if they’re in the country for Splendour. This can generally lead to some pretty interesting shows, in some cases the bands are tired and ready to get off the road, in others they’re in full party mood – which inevitably leads to some loose and very fun and entertaining shows.

I last saw Death Cab For Cutie play HQ in 2012 and it was the first time I'd seen a crowd of 20 somethings - both men and women - react so intensely, revelling in nostalgia, melancholy and an emotional tornado swept up by the band's excellent delivery of lovelorn rock tunes. Fast forward to 2015 and we're back in the same venue but nothing much else has changed - the fans and the band have gotten a few years older but we're all wanting that same experience.

Walking through the Entertainment Centre ‘Orb’ (as the staff there call it) on Thursday night there was a buzz fuelled by genuine excitement from all demographics of Adelaide. Only a small selection of bands can generate the level of excitement that The Wombats managed last week, the fact that they were upgraded from Thebby Theatre to the Entertainment Centre is a compliment in itself.

Here, we reflect on our 11 favourite performances from the three days of live music.
