The bonus of watching live music at the Zoo is seeing the animals before hand and being later in the day and more temperate, the animals are less likely to be avoiding the heat of the day, lying comatose where you can’t see them. Lively lemurs, with their black and white striped, long tails, a grumpy gorilla, hefty hippo, bright coloured butterflies, tempestuous tiger, and eager baby elephant are a few of the animals that the punters not scrambling for grass space are fortunate to see.

I first came across The Gin Club many years ago in a small town pub. I happened to see them play purely by chance, and by the end of set I was impressed, stirred and incredibly inspired. This proved a serendipitous discovery and since then I have been a loyal fan. Over the last 10 years, The Gin Club have continued to arouse and astound audiences, and remain one of Australia’s more unique bands. This particular tour marks their 10th anniversary, as well as the return of Ola Karlsson from his homeland, Sweden.
Melbourne is great in the way it provides so many different opportunities for live music- one of those being Zoo Twilights. Last Friday saw Something For Kate headline, with support from The Orbweavers.
