The Good China last played a show, so when Tash and I learned they would be returning to the live stage we had to be there. I headed out into the rain last night and got to Cherry Bar towards the end of The Harlots energetic set, with Tash arriving shortly after (driving down from Ballarat, such is her dedication).
The Good China still have eight members, but a new bass player. They started their set with a new song and then launched into "All Nothing," complete with hand clapping from various parts of the crowd. The set list was a mix of some pretty good sounding new numbers and old favorites like "If Pain Persists" and "We Found 3 Whistles." We also got to hear their new single "No More Maps, No More Roads," which was another favorite from previous gigs. It's so nice to have The Good China back on the Melbourne live scene and I look forward to catching them again soon.
