The John Curtin band room is as dark as I have ever seen it. It suited perfectly for some dark chord crunching bands to fill the room with their insanely doomy music. Any god-fearing music lover - is there such a thing? - would turn away at the door if they had no idea what they were seeing.
I must admit that when I heard I was going to review a band named ‘Frightened Rabbit’, I had some reservations. An obscure, Scottish band from a town named Selkirk; A band of which neither myself nor most people I asked had heard. So, with that in mind, I was surprised to see that the show to take place on the 28th of January at the John Curtin Hotel in Carlton had sold out.
