Art of Fighting

Discussion in 'The Pub' at netrider.net.au started by I Adore Vic, Jun 2, 2007.

  1. Any Art of Fighting fans here??? I know of two! Three plus me :grin:

    I just noticed they're playing at some place called Northcote next Thursday the 7th June and I reckon I can pull strings to get there :grin:

    If anyone is interested in going along, or wants further info, let me know.

  4. I'll definitely be there Rosie. Saw them two weeks back at The Corner, was a great show. You haven't been to Northcote Social Club before? It's a great venue, not too big and excellent sound. Let me know if you're definitely going.

  8. Hi Rosie,

    I've already bought my ticket online for pick-up at the door on the night. You can do the same on Wednesday or Thursday morning once you know if you're definitely going, or take a chance buying one on the night. Be warned, apparently they are selling fast and their shows at NSC normally sell out beforehand as it is a relatively small venue. If you're a fan of their music you'll absolutely love them live so I hope you can make it.

    Nee, you got a ticket yet?

    Cheers :)

  11. Nope not yet. will have to wait till tomorrow.
    Hey chris you know what time they are starting? I wanna fit the mystery ride in too.

    :p call me greedy. I wonder who will lead the mystery ride :?
    perhaps if somebody who knew the northern suburbs well was to lead it may be possible to end up somewhere near the NSC :)

  12. Main act usually starts after 10:30 at NSC. I'll call them tomorrow to find out the exact time they come on. I'm planning on doing the mystery ride beforehand. Should be able to do ride + gig no sweat.

    Rosie, too bad you can't make it. Hopefully see you at the next one :)

  13. OK, the review....

    Unfortunately I ended up being the only netrider there which is a shame as it was a fantastic show. NSC is a small venue and given that it was a Thursday night it wasn't packed. NSC is easily my favourite venue for seeing bands.

    I have a lousy memory so I won't recite a setlist (started with Akula, finished with Waiting) but as usual it was a great selection of songs taken from all their albums/EPs. I've seen AoF about seven times now and every time they totally blow me away. They are mesmerising to watch. If you know their music you'll know how in a single song they can go from something slow and beautiful and build it up into something that is incredibly powerful, and seeing this live is an awesome experience.

    If you're a fan of local independent bands and don't mind music with a slower edge to it then make sure you see this band at least once.
