It was “only Brit in the room” territory again last night, when I went to see Melbourne’s Something For Kate at the Mean Fiddler.
To be honest, never having heard either band before, I think I got more value from the support, The Mutts (lazy pseudo-music critic generalisation: BRMC meets The Music, er, backstage at a Yeah Yeah Yeahs gig). Having said that, Something For Kate’s brand of inoffensive guitar rock was, well, inoffensive enough. You know, sounds like the sort of thing I normally like.
I also appreciated the comedy value of arriving at the venue to find that all the touts were touting for the gig next door (“Ben Harper. Any spare tickets for Ben Harper. I’ll buy or sell…”)
