Saw The Waifs at The Roxy Theatre (which BTW is a fantastic venue) on Friday.. just the right size and the new restoration is fantastic! Anyways, this was (I think) the sixth time I'd seen the Waifies live and they didn't dissapoint. I got right down to the front, pretty much directly in front of Donna... There were plenty of the old classics and a couple of new ones they had written in the downtime while Vikki was busy being a mom. The fire alarm went off in the middle of the performance and everything had to stop while the hunky firemen (Donna was very impressed) fixed the alarm.
I think the audience were mostly new listeners coz there were only a few of us singing along at the front... you pretty much completely forget that there are 600 more people behind you.. they were very quiet.. compated to the last time I saw them at the Enmore (with Missy Higgins in support)... Anyways, it was a fantastic show.. and I'm just pissed off I won't be able to hit the East Coast Blues and Roots Festival this year.. such an amazing lineup!!
