Venue: The Waiting Room, Brisbane
Acts: Do The Robot
I’ve always enjoyed the lush pop meanderings of Do The Robot, and still regularly listen to their 2009 long-player First Names.
Tonight they don’t play anything from that particular release. Still, that’s not especially surprising considering the time that’s since elapsed, and their consistent output of splits and cassettes in the interim.
In the end, the lack of familiar tunes doesn’t matter. Matt Deasy’s still guitar shimmers with all the enfolding warmth that I remember so fondly, and Sarah Deasy’s voice just soars.
