Calexico @ Athenaeum Theatre, Melbourne (Tue 24 Sep 2013)
Sensational is the only word to describe that.
The Athenaeum is a full sit-down venue which is pretty hard going at a gig like Calexico. As soon as they went into Across The Wire (second song for the night) we were itching to get up and dance, but unfortunately, the rest of the room didn’t seem to want to.
The only song I was really wanting to hear but didn’t was Epic from the Algiers album. Here’s to hoping they play it tomorrow at The Corner.
Tiny Ruins were an excellent support- we only caught the last few songs and unfortunately they’re not playing the Corner show tomorrow.
And now, sleep.
