My review:

  • Fantastic songs
  • An awesome Pink Floyd cover (to perfection, actually)
  • A band that never puts in a half effort. Real crowd pleasers!
  • Try to move around a little more (even on a small stage) and bring out your full energy
  • Introduce each song (please) so we can search them all after the gig

Set List: (Please bare in mind this is not in order, because they accidently left the set list at the venue and couldn’t quite remember the order of songs when we spoke after)

Western Sydney locals The Shang are the number one band to grab if you want to get a room pumping. Their alternative rock sound has given this four-piece a large (and well deserved) following. Resulting in them packing out festival performances and local Western Sydney venues, as well as playing a handful of inner city gigs to large audiences (too).

I’d definitely recommend going to see The Shang at a show soon! e.g. like the Jazmaree gig this Sunday at the Record Crate in Glebe @ 7pm (I’d be getting there early to grab a ticket too BTW!).  Bloody solid show ‘Shang’ers. Had a blast. See you on Sunday!!
