Oct. 9th is a special day all around for me…John Lennon & my best friend’s birthday, so I tend to think anything that happens on Oct. 9th must be pretty special. Tomorrow night at the Tabernacle, Atlas Genius, the South Australian indie rock band who recently released their debut EP, titled Through the Glass, are very quickly making their way up the charts. They joined us for our 5GB series before their show at the Tabernacle.
What’s the first gig you ever attended?
Paul McCartney in the early 90’s at Adelaide Oval, South Australia with the family. I was pretty young but it sure had a lasting impression on me.
What is the best gig that you ever played/performed?
A show we played in Seattle, WA only last month. It was an outdoor festival and it was quite overwhelming to see such a large crowd singing along to our songs.
What is the best gig you have ever seen?
I saw Death Cab for Cutie a few year back in Adelaide, with Ben’s lyric and the flawless performance of the band it’ll be a hard one to top in my book.
What is the gig you would most like to play?
What would be the lineup for your dream gig?
I’m going to you with a ‘past and present’ lineup. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Beck, Death Cab for Cutie & Phoenix.
