A few blocks walk from the city centre of Hobart is what's called the Winter Palace. It's a large old sharehouse with a revolving door of tenants and it's pretty much central to the Hobart music scene. The power went out mid show unfortunately but was hastily shifted to another house and all was won in Tasmania.
I don't really feel smart enough to accurately describe Native Cats so I won't but some key words that come into my failing brain are "mind blowing" and "awesome".
Some trivia - their singer is also a stand up comedian. Who would have thunk?
Glen Schenau of Per Purpose / Marl Carx / Kitchen's Floor fame finds time in his busy touring schedule to perform a solo acoustic set. First of it's kind and it's really good.
NOTE: AFTER GLEN'S SET IS WHEN THE BLACKOUT STRUCK. I HEARD IT WAS A POWER SURGE. I HEARD IT WAS A FAULT IN THE SYSTEM. WHATEVER IT WAS, THE FOLLOWING VIDEO OF DRUNK ELK WAS FILMED AT A NEW LOCATION LATER THAT NIGHT.
Drunk Elk kind of sum up the idea of a band thriving in isolation. The new Tasmanian cult band = Drunk Elk. Get with it.
