The Getaway Plan with Madison Foxx, Gatherer and Break Even Live Review @ Hi-Fi Brisbane

We get to the HiFi early, expecting it to still be pretty quiet, but it's clear the people of Brisbane are keen to see the boys back in action - it's already going off. Three fairly heavy support bands, plus the main act, all on a Wednesday night? Bring it on.

the-getaway-plan

Locals Madison Foxx hit the stage first, their lead singer sporting a pretty impressive scream and an even better mullet. The guys are energetic and do their best to get the crowd involved, and even manage to have a laugh when the guitarist breaks a couple of strings on the first song.

Gatherer are next and as we watch the bass player take off his casual hat right before they kick off, it's clear they mean business. The Canberrans seemed a little nervous but did a good job of keeping the momentum going throughout their set, getting the crowd onside and, by the looks of it, winning over a few new fans.

It's clear that Break Even have quite a few fans in the crowd, with the hardcore guys from Perth receiving a warm welcome. They kick it off with a little Nirvana and get the HiFi pumping, doing their job as last supports well and revving up the crowd. Lead singer Mark Bawden thrashes around the stage, keeping the energy up throughout the set, and the rest of the band back him up. I'd only heard a little of these guys before tonight but they definitely won me over.

Anticipation is definitely building as The Getaway Plan get set to come on, with girls on tip toes craning to see the stage and a few scattered cheers here and there as their gear is readied. People around us debate whether they'll 'still have it' after the band broke up and got back together, and the boys promptly answer that question by coming out to a huge roar and launching into The Reckoning.

A few songs later, as the crowd chimes in on Move Along, you can see the band are loving it. Lead singer Matt Wright chats about the last couple of years throughout the set, saying they're proud of the new album, and it's 'fucking amazing' they weren't even a band a year ago. The crowd agrees, with most of the new songs played from Requiem already known and loved. Finishing up with an encore involving the song it seemed most people had been waiting for - Where the City Meets the Sea - it seems the boys are back and better than ever.
