One thing you get used to living in New Zealand is the constant disappointment of amazing bands touring Australia and not jumping the ditch to our little corner of the world. Some of the more heartbreaking tours that have visited Australia and not made the jump include the Gaslight Anthem, the Lawre.
One thing you get used to living in New Zealand is the constant disappointment of amazing bands touring Australia and not jumping the ditch to our little corner of the world. Some of the more heartbreaking tours that have visited Australia and not made the jump include the Gaslight Anthem, the Lawrence Arms, Saves the Day, Alkaline Trio, Face to Face...you get the idea. Of course, there are some bands that take the plunge and head across for a few dates in New Zealand and on most occasions they are pleasantly surprised by the overexcited and under-stimulated Kiwi crowds.
One thing I had heard about Propagandhi was that they could be a little preachy between songs, but this was not really the case. They joked about going to see some New Zealand mountains, talked about Fat Mike's mansion and how they paid for the security system on it (this was right before launching into "Rock for Sustainable Capitalism") and introduced one of the songs as being about killing stupid meat-eaters, but even this was less preaching than I expected.
As I headed out the door after what I can only describe as one of the best live performances I have ever been witness to, I hoped that when Chris Hannah said "we will be back" he was not just paying lip service.
