Last night Holly, Rachel and I managed to get out for some live music. Amazing after all this time.
The band we saw was local act EGOISM who we've been trying to see for a while. The earlier booking was for a December show that got cancelled with the Northern Beaches outbreak. Finally we got to see them at Mary's Underground, previously known as the famous Sydney venue The Basement.
It was weird going to a gig with all the checkin business for COVID. We were shown to a table and had to stay seated for the whole gig. Deeply weird. But rather civilised. Like a cabaret!
Better yet, Mary's stocks Heaps Normal, my favourite booze free beer.
EGOISM were great. Tightly performed their tracks, were fun with banter between songs. More polished than I'd expected. Their harmonies are really quite something.
Support act Ultracrush were good fun. Started off jingly jangly then went a bit shoegaze. Enjoyable show.
