Gang of Youths at Hibernian House in Sydney on Thursday, June 21, 2012
(with The Falls, opening for Tigertown)
This is Gang of Youths’ first “proper” gig, opening with The Falls for headliner, Tigertown. Tickets for the show cost $10.
The website Aussie Playlist was there primarily to review Tigertown, but had this to say about GOY’s set:
The first act to hit the stage was Gang of Youths, playing their first proper gig. With the room not as packed as the band deserved, they proceeded to get things rolling in what turned out to be a powerful and emotional set. Gang of Youths delivered a pretty cool guitar dominated sound, complete with some sexy harmonies, and some driving beats thrown in just to give the guitars some context. They didn’t hold back on the theatrics either, with frontman David Leaupepe putting on a stomping good show up the front. These guys will definitely be a band to watch.
If there are any photos from this performance, or if anyone knows GOY’s setlist, please get in touch so we can document it here!
