Augie March - ya gotta see them, `cause the boy can sing

Just got back from seeing Augie March at the Zoo, and they were fantastic. I'm a new convert to the band, basically on the back of their new album "Moo, You Bloody Choir". The album's great, and their back catalogue is too, but live, well, it was one of those gigs where you find yourself rediscovering every song, and growing all fanboyish, and just grinning a lot.

If you get a chance to see this band, do it. Lyrically and musically they're one of Australia's most interesting rock acts. Is this just late night, and a couple of beers, hyperbole? Well, I don't know. But I haven't enjoyed a live act as much since Okkervil River toured last year.

Now I've got to sleep.
