Tonight’s headline performance by Gypsy and The Cat was organised by mobile phone company, HTC for reasons that weren’t exactly made clear. Perhaps the giant, fluorescent phones placed strategically around the HiFi were supposed to entice the crowd into purchasing a new phone the second they left the concert. Maybe the elevated mood experienced by attending the concert would ‘subconsciously’ make everyone realise how cool HTC were. In reality, the whole promotion was a bit daggy and screamed desperation. The ‘hip-ness’ of HTC aside, what actually took place that evening was a fun night of electro, indie dance music with some great support from local act, Georgia Potter, and Melbourne’s Clubfeet.
