2 guitars is a yes – 3 guitars is a double yes! Twin Peaks shred stormed in after a top notch set from Wax Witches and Wild Honey at the Oxford Arts Factory in downtown Darlinghurst, Sydney last night.
A crowd on a Tuesday night can go one of two ways. European tourists lost and looking to party, or, true fans ready to throw around their arms and leg in the front row to any given beat. Throwing beers is another thing altogether and was deemed acceptable by Twin Peaks bassist Jack.
Tall front glamour-man Cadien (those eyes, seriously?) took the first few songs by the nether regions and handed them to the fiesty crowd straight up. I was super impressed by the musicality of the entire band. The songs passed spotlight from lead vocalists and harmonies right through the band (except for the drummer, unless I was at the bar for that bit).
The songs we know from their recordings are rad – and they added some extra magic for the live show. A little extra in a live show’s what I like, and an additional nod to country music in the middle of the set was a good example of their roots and diversity. Grateful and gracious, they were happy to have some Wax Witches members up on stage to belt out a chorus or two as well. Overall an excellent way to spend a Tuesday in the City of Lockouts and Lockdowns. My pal Lincoln snapped some excellent moments. Pictures speak a thousand words. Mic Dropped.
