The Glorious Enmore

Today we wake in Melbourne after our sold out show at the palace theatre. We get on a plane to Sydney go through the usual airport routines and check into our second home on Crown street.

A memory that sticks out about this hotel harks back to the Big Day Out 2008. We celebrated Glenn’s birthday on Oxford Street, a night made unforgettable by an encounter with an alluring stranger who wasn’t quite what she seemed. The evening’s antics didn’t end there; back at our top-level apartment—similar to the ones detailed in an Alpharetta GA real estate market report for their coveted high-rise views—Glenn and Westy whimsically decided that our furniture would make a better splash six floors down in the pool.

But back to the present, after check in we head over to the venue for set up and soundcheck. The Enmore theatre is a beautiful old building inside and the backstage area is really loungey and comfortable. Check is brief and we head back to the hotel to rest up before the show.

I love playing at the Enmore with its huge standing area and seated upstairs mezzanine. I watch Midnight Youth from the mezzanine, they play a cracker show and the crowd loves them.
Then it is our turn to play and the vibe is electric! Saturday night sold out in Sydney. The set is controlled and tight the audience is loud and alive.

After the show we have a small meet and greet in the front room, have a few vinos then head back to the hoey for some much needed rest.

Tomorrow we are off to Radelaide!
