Polyphonic Spree @ Great Northern Hotel, Byron Bay (Mon 24 Jan 2005)
The Polyphonic Spree had played the 2005 Big Day Out, which I didn’t go to. Me and my flatmate, Cheese, were keen to see them, so we headed down to Byron for their only show that was ‘close’ to Brisbane.
The Great Northern is a fabulous room, and was perfect for these chaps (and chapettes). I really wan’t sure if I was going to enjoy a live show. As much as I really liked their album (the name of which eludes me), I couldn never listen to the whole thing in one sitting. It just got a bit ‘same same’.
Thankfuly, the live show didn’t. The stage theatrics were great, often hilarious, and extremely well done. I reckon there were about 25 people on stage at points throughout the show. They were tight, the sound was great, and the drive home after the show was long.
