Wagons Album Preview Show + Toot Toot Toots + Jemma & The Wise Young Ambitious Gentlemen @ The Corner Hotel, Melbourne 22/05/13
Through the smoke and haze of calypso coloured lights they emerged. Carrying the energy and moves to play a stadium show, and play they did. Yet tonight was only for the tantalising pleasure of loyal Wagons fans that squashed like happy sardines on a cold Winter’s night into a sold out Corner Hotel in Melbourne.
Now I am neither a reviewer nor a writer but I can tell you this- Wagons music is a theatrical narration of everyday moments and interactions with life. Their music can have you holding your breath in anticipation of something beautiful about to happen, rallying for adventure and moving with every inch of energy you have, all in the space of four bars. So tonight I will be looking into my soul for the magic number of months that I will have to wait for their new album to be released…let’s hope my number comes up soon.
