Geetar Gigs recently launched a brief stint of shows at Academia Nights, an initiative for students to gain valuable experience in the music industry, while putting on a string of fun-packed live shows- all welcome to attend.
We attended the inaugural event last Thursday and were super impressed- explosive live music, a sick beer-pong championship played between sets, cheap drinks and a tasty food truck meant it exceeded all expectations. There were students all around training on lights and sound, photographing, performing, and attending, creating a super cheerful, welcoming atmosphere.
The good times began with a pumping set from Common Concept DJs to kickstart the vibes, followed by Sunday Sesh Band making their live performance debut. The crowd was bouncing off the walls during their set, forming a wild, thrashing mosh pit that reflected the wicked energy of the boys onstage.
After some more rounds of beer-pong, it was time for the talented Local Safari to take to the stage. Their setlist was studded with fan-favorites, ‘Shots’ and ‘Generation’, unreleased treat ‘Felicity Meow’ and incredible covers of Lime Cordiale’s ‘Inappropriate Behaviour’ and Spacey Jane’s ‘Booster Seat’.
To top the night off killer Common Concepts DJ took to the stage again to deliver another all-time hype set, sending the crowd off with the sweet sounds of nostalgic throwbacks mixed with modern bangers.
