It was another heartbreaking day for music lovers, after hearing the death of Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington. Despite the sad news, everyone united at Northcote Social Club for an amazing night, and a reminder of why our hearts keep beating.
The night started with indie punk-rockers; Crusch and metal-rockers; Pagan.
Grenadiers from Adelaide, took the stage with their grungy tunes. These guys are definitely going to be added to more of my playlists. Their energy was insane!
Finally, American rock duo ’68 took the stage to headline the night. I really liked their set up. They are a two-piece band and had their instruments facing each other. The set up allowed them to connect and play in such unity.
There were no special fancy effects, the lighting was mostly dark but the energy from the crowd and the stage was enough to light up the room.
Vocalist and guitarist; Josh Scogin definitely made everyone in the crowd have a giggle
with his humour. They duo played a mixture of their biggest hits and some tracks from
their latest album Two Parts Viper.
There was no mention of the passing away, but it would have definitely crossed each
person’s mind throughout the day. It’s nice that we can all still be brought together by
something we love, and keep us pushing through.
I really dug ’68’s vibe and would be keen to see them again!
Music unites us, and I’m glad I got to experience another loved-filled room captivated by amazing talent.
