UC Refectory 14/4: A Huge Night With The Jungle Giants
On Saturday April 14th, indie rockers The Jungle Giants blew fans and music lovers away with a colossal performance at the University of Canberra’s Refectory. It was the only Canberra show of the band’s Used to Be in Love national tour, which focused on exhibiting their latest record, Quiet Ferocity, released in July last year.
The Brisbane foursome are no strangers to performing on a giant stage; having played at the Commonwealth Games just a few days before their Canberra show. The Jungle Giants were also recently announced on the massive Splendour in the Grass line-up.
Sparing no energy for the remaining dates on their tour, The Jungle Giants treated concert-goers to an electrifying 80-minute show. Crowd favourites from the new album had the UC Refectory shaking, as Bad Dream and On Your Way Down had the whole crowd dancing. Long-term fans were not left displeased either, as golden oldies Every Kind of Way and She’s a Riot from the bands earlier records were smashed out and well received by all.
Following a thunderous call for an encore, the four band members returned to the stage to thank Canberra for their biggest show in the nation’s capital to date. Their last song- Feel the Way I Do – made for a memorable and fitting finale.
Those who missed out on Saturday night’s show simply have to add The Jungle Giants to the seemingly endless list of must-see acts, currently smashing it in the Australian music industry.
