After the success of the first Pesci’s Club night staring Ecca Vandal, WAAX and MKO, the Foundry announced that Pesci’s would be held on the last Thursday of every month. With their gallivanting on social media, announcing ‘it’s not bad, it’s good!’ and the proposal of free balloon animals, it was obviously going to be a night of unadulterated fun.
Local Brisbane bands Morning Harvey and Bugs were announced as the headliners for the night, attracting an exotic and diverse crowd with mad vibes.
Fans and regulars alike filled the venue as Bugs emerged on stage, immediately emitting a vivacious and energetic feel that brought everyone to their feet. Connor Brooker seduced the audience with some classic Australian banter, a unique yet enticing Brittany Spears cover of ‘Toxic’ and the performance of their new tunes and old faves including ‘Best Friend’, ‘Tinnies’ and ‘Heal’, certainly making their mark on the recently revamped Foundry stage.
Charismatic groovers Morning Harvey were up next bringing along Jungle Giants guitarist Cesira Aitken to the stage, having been known to bring surprises to their shows in the past. Their magnetic, go-with-the-flow attitudes and eccentric, Jagger-like style collaborated with their seamless performance and reverb that droned us into a trance.
The contrast of these two awesome bands playing in the one night seems to have satisfied everyone’s taste buds, being a brilliant blessing to the updated venue. The night definitely set the bar for the next Pesci’s Club Night but I’m excited to head along to the Foundry next month to see what goes down.
