This was my first time to see a gig at Miss Libertine, although I had been there on several occasions for a cheap pizza (there not to bad). Don't know what the first band was called, but the lead singer enjoyed having his top off. Not too exciting, but most of the people there were there to see Plug in City. So by saying that the crowd were punters, family, friends, and some people who were still getting wasted after being at the races.
Plug in City at Miss Libertine, Sat 10th of November, EP Launch, $10, potts of draught $3.50
I had a few problems with the venue, low stage; it got really hot after it packed in and it was hard to move in and out;and the sound quality was not that great. Although with saying that there were some places you could stand at the back on steps and the toilets and front bar had the live music pumping through there PA, which sounded so much better.
Plug in City are a great band, they have everything going for them young, looks and sound. They come from Melbourne, so you could make references to the likes of Cut Copy, although there sound is more laid back and cruiser compared to cut copy. They fit right in with the whole Modular stable. They kinda loosely remind me of New Order and also with a hint of The Cars. They have a great sound live, hardly any stopping and starting, plus no random ramblings by the lead singer.
