Mystery Jets @ HiFi, BrisbaneMystery Jets @ HiFi, Brisbane
Last night I saw Mystery Jets at The Hi-Fi in Brisbane. I’d been looking forward to this gig for a long time and it’s safe to say that the boys from Eel Pie Island met (and exceeded) my every expectation. The only thing I found disappointing was the lack of a crowd. The Hi-Fi was half full at best and, in my opinion, these boys deserved a much bigger audience. The smaller audience did have its upsides though – unobstructed views and plenty of dancing room! I’m quite horrible at giving ‘reviews’ because most times I just like something or I don’t, and can’t be bothered explaining why. If I were to try and choose highlights for the night, off the top of my head, I’d say that they would include Two Doors Down, After Dark and Behind The Bunhouse. Although, as more songs come to mind, this list would most certainly grow until it featured every song on the setlist. I took my Canon Sureshot along for the ride and had my fingers crossed that it would take some decent photos in such low light settings. I think it did the job quite well, considering. You can see more photos from the night on my flickr.

    @Vicky: They sound amazing live! I'd definitely see them again. And again and again and again! haha

    @LuuH: ohhhh that must've been a pain. Hopefully when you turn 18 you can see them as many times as you want!

    This was always the same for concerts when I lived in Tassie- less people, but meant it was so much better! Hahaha I hate reviewing things too for the same reason, you did well though πŸ™‚
