Woollen Kits and Royal Headache at Newtown RSL, 20/08/10

Newtown RSL is really wide and lots of people were there to fill it out but it felt kind of weird as a venue BUT (breath) that being said the show was top notch. Lovely that I actually got to catch Woollen Kits this time (last time I saw them was last year in Melbourne, and after the incident last night!). Maybe not everyone's bag (insert lazy Beat Happening reference here, though I think it's become less apparent) but I enjoy it immensely. It's all teenage digs and unadorned pop songs that make ya grin. Royal Headache are pretty much the new Eddy Current Suppression Ring re: crowd composition, and it was near impossible to stand right at the front without getting my knees broken (but I did get some wicked bruises) so I skipped to side stage and observed in delight. The played set list was totally different to what was on the written one (new vs. old) and they played Girls and Honey Joy for crowd merriment. Soon to be selling out huge venues.

(edit: Morris over at Sydney Tapes recorded the shows for your listening pleasure. Fun!)

(thanks to Damo from The Warm Feelings - who also played but I only got the tail end of - for organising this show.)
