When three of the rowdiest bands around get together for a national tour, you know it’s going to be one hell of a time. Brisbane boys Dune Rats released their sophomore studio album The Kids Will Know It’s Bullshit in February and to celebrate they played a run of shows around the country along with Byron Bay favs and label mates Skegss and Newcastle diehards The Gooch Palms.
This is the biggest triple-header we’ve seen in a while. Not even a minor fire evacuation could quench the thirst of the rambunctious crowd following Goochies set, with some banging on bin lids and chanting as they were led outside. In dramatic style, some firemen were seen exiting the venue and the crowd finally received the green light they were anxious for. Nothing like some disruptive combustion to add to the momentum of an evening.
