It's time to strap yourselves in because Zen Panda blew us away at the Rocket Rooftop Bar on Friday night, in support of Bec Sandridge's Adelaide show. Oh boy, we haven't felt so funky in such a long time. These psychedelic fellas graced the stage with their stellar music, if we had to describe it to you in any way it would almost be like a mash of Two Door Cinema Club, Sticky Fingers and Tame Impala all in one, can you think of anything better than that?
"A jolly bunch of psychedelic floppy hand poppers from outer space" - Zen Panda on themselves
Zen Panda are from our lovely lil' South Australia, and have previously opened for The Montreals and The Jungle Giants at Fat Controller, and The Belligerents at The Rocket; it's definitely a good boogie with this local bunch. Friday night's gig was an outstanding one however, with front man Denzal opening up the set with some Spanish and then jumping right into some mind-bending psychedelic tunes. The audience were also treated to a sweet little cover of Tame Impala's song Disciples, and we couldn't tell if Kevin Parker had entered the room or if Tame had been cloned and renamed Zen Panda - top stuff!
It was such a stunner of a performance and we can't wait 'til their next gig is announced! If you would like to pop on down and catch them perform in the future, make sure to check out their social media to keep tabs on when that next gig might be.
