Live Review: Approachable Members Of Your Local Community
It was somebody’s birthday in The Gasometer Hotel as Approachable Members Of Your Local Community, kicked off their ‘One I Need’ tour with a show that kept the sold out crowd, singing and dancing even after they had gone off stage.
First up Gaby Davis took to the stage, and gave the early crowd a treat, showing off that she has plenty to give, and people will remember the name. She played some of her latest releases, also getting the crowd clicking along to her cover of Maggie Rogers track ‘Alaska’.
Next up was another local indie popper and former Triple J Unearthed High finalist Nancie Schipper. Despite early tech issues, she took us through her impressive catalogue so far Even smashing out a brilliant cover of Miley Cryus’s smash 2017 single ‘Wrecking Ball’.
As the night got a little chilli, and the roof had closed over The Gaso, Approachable Members along with matching outfits took to the stage, with a very excited crowd ready to dance and have sing-a-long. They showcased what a stellar 2018 they had, playing tracks from last years EP ‘If There’s Anything You Need, Please Don’t Hesitate To Ask’, with punters having no problems singing along to every word.
They would invite Nancie Schipper back on stage to perform the bands biggest hits to date ‘Only Friend’ and ‘One I Need’, which certainly had the whole crowd singing and dancing. This is when they would tease the idea of going off stage, but stayed on to close out an entertaining set, covering Sophie Ellis Baxter’s 2002 hit ‘Murder On The Dancefloor’.
Very sweaty after a solid 50 minutes of singing and dancing away, Approachable Members Of Your Local Community certainly made whomevers birthday in room a memorable one. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for Approachable Member’s for the rest of 2019.
