Corner Hotel to see Hungry Kids Of Hungary play to a sold out crowd on the last date of their You're A Shadow tour. The first act of the night was Melbourne indie pop band Them Swoops. I was very surprised to discover my friend Satoshi playing guitar and keys with them. Next up was Sydney band The Preatures, who I thought were pretty good with their atmospheric and soulful songs.
Hungry Kids Of Hungary came out to a very eager crowd and started their set with "What In The World" before launching into "Sharp Shooter." It was great to hear the majority of tracks off their excellent second album You're A Shadow, including my favorites "Do Or Die," "Twin Cities," "Litter and Sand," and the absolute highlight of the night, "When Yesterday's Gone." We were also treated to some classic Hungry Kids songs like "Set It Right," "Scattered Diamonds," and "Wristwatch." They finished the main set with an epic version of "Coming Around" and for the encore did their Triple J Like A Version cover of Tame Impala's "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" before inviting all the support acts on stage to close the night with an energetic "Let You Down." I always love seeing Hungry Kids play live and their harmonies and musicianship were once again on point.
Here's "When Yesterday's Gone" live from when they were on Triple J a couple weeks ago:
