On July 18th at the Metropolitan hotel we were treated to a killer night of live music from the likes of Peter Bibby, Gorsha, the Moraby Band and more!
While the nights events featured mainly interstate acts, punters nevertheless warmed to the acts as Gorsha and Bibby made numerous humorous anecdotes about our city during their sets.
Co-Headliners Gorsha, showed exceptional stage presence and integrity throughout their performance. Their catchy songs often reflected their 'Darwin come Melbourne origins' with front man Finn Williams putting on a lively spectacle, and often conversing with the crowd.
Peter Bibby who played earlier in the night has become a Radelaide favourite coming off a performance at the Ed castle some weeks ago. We simply can't get enough off his balance of lyrical storytelling and musical prowess. Tracks such as 'Red XF falcon' and 'Hates my Boozin' beautifully describe Bibby's personal experiences, allowing listeners to feel very much in touch with the musician.
Furthermore Bibby's style could be likened to a male Courtney Barnett in his unapologetic confessional approach. This Dylanesque approach in conjunction with his remarkable talent on the steel guitar has allowed Bibby to craft wonderfully emotive songs which enthralled punters on Saturday night. In fact, the storytelling of Bibby's songs was so encapsulating for the crowd that they often laughed in unison at the humorous remarks in the lyrics.
With such a talent and a likable down to earth character, we hope to see a lot more of Peter Bibby in Adelaide! and throughout the country!
To cap off the night, the Moraby Band had the already revved up crowd dancing and singing along to classics covers of AC/DC and Midnight Oil, ending an already legendary night on an unapologetic high note.
Overall on what was a cold and wintry night, the turnout and response to the fantastic performances displayed at the Metro last Saturday was absolutely fantastic and we look forward to seeing all the artists in the future!
