The Smith Street Gig – UC Refectory
The crowd was restless.
“Smith Street… Smith Street… Smith Street,” the crowd echoed.
Immediately, people were jolted forward. The Smith Street Band had entered the stage. Opening with some classics of their latest album, More Scared of You Than You Are Of Me, the crowd went wild.
“We are more than future housewives,
more than the sum of our past lives.”
As expected, the audience went crazy for their best-known hits, Arrogance of a Drunk Pedestrian, Shine and Young Drunk.
But it wouldn’t be a Smith Street gig without the mosh pit going utterly nuts. A few drunks started throwing punches. A guitar was kicked into the crowd. Fans with tear-streaked faces screamed up at their idols. It was chaotic and sweaty, but absolutely mind-blowing.
Ending the night with one their most raw and scrambled songs, I Love Life, The Smith Street Band left fans with a full heart, and an unforgettable experience.
“And I love life so fucking much right now, I have to pinch myself,
I can’t quite believe how far I’ve been dragged up from the depths of hell.”
