Rolling Backouts Coastal Fever at the Horseshoe.

Went to see Australia’s Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever this past Tuesday at one of my favourite venues, the Horseshoe Tavern. I probably first heard of the band on either an Uncut or a Mojo compilation, and bought the French Press EP as a result. It’s a fantastic guitar driven indie-rock record. I saw the band at the Garrison earlier this year, and was happily impressed by their live show.

Yet, two things really stood out from their show at the Horseshoe. It was soooo hot in there. I can’t remember the last time it was so sweaty at a show in September! Should it be cooler by now.?

But seriously, the important thing was how much tighter the band was. It felt like a well-oiled machine, playing songs from their earlier record and the fantastic debut album Hope Downs.

An hour-long set and a quick encore, and we were done.
