I’m at the HiFi Bar in Melbourne’s CBD late on a Friday and the crowd is humming. I heard Big Scary had sold out the show, but now that I’m standing here with 600 or 700 people in the packed audience I can’t believe how popular they’ve become in a short space of time. Only two months ago I heard the Not Art album played to a modest crowd the Triple R studios. Not Art has really helped the band crossover to another genre and help them appeal to another audience. I guess Cygnett should be thankful that we were able to use their previous hit, ‘This Weight’, for our very recent Utility Street Test before the band totally exploded.
Not Art from start to finish and the crowd bays for more and that is exactly what they get when Tom and Jo return to the stage without their new band members and belt out a few tunes from Vacation.
Before I knew it the gig was done and the crowd disperse and again I’m left reflecting upon how popular they’ve become in such a short space of time and then I reflect on the show I’ve just seen and realised that nothing is going to surprise me moving forward
