Local boys from Bad//Dreems celebrated their final show of their national ‘Gutful’ tour at The Gov last Saturday night, and absolutely brought the house down. Supported by Brisbane Indie-Rockers, The Creases, and Melbourne based sound engineer Paul ‘Woody’ Annison, the night was a haven for banging tunes. The boys from Bad//Dreems posed for a photo with their tour fam to close their sold out tour in Adelaide.
The room was electric as fans welcomed the band’s homecoming, and close to the 11pm mark Bad//Dreems took the stage to their hometown crowd. Made up of Ben, Alex, James and Miles, the bad expressed their appreciation for their Adelaide fans before sharing their nostalgic 90s, guitar heavy music with us. The stage was cloaked with a West End tinnies inspired Bad//Dreems red and black sheet - the epitome of the true blue Aussie band.
Never have I seen so many deliriously drunken head banging moves, as everyone gave an entirely new meaning to the ‘Mob Rule’ - there were even attempts at crowd surfing. The excitement of performing in their home base of Adelaide certainly factored in to their performance, because the boys in Bad//Dreems had such a magnetic stage presence and engagement with the crowd that it was a night not soon to be forgotten. Fan favourites Hoping For, Chills, Caroline and of course Mob Rule had the room abuzz with excitement. There was no reminder that 'Monday’s Coming’ - that one’s for the diehard Bad//Dreemers - on this Saturday night as the party raved on.
With the drinks flowing, tunes banging and crowd moshing, this will surely be a night to go down in The Gov history - as only ‘Good//Dreems’ came from Saturday night’s antics.
