The first performance took place at Basement Discs in the city in Melbourne during the day underground to a keen crowd.
The band then performed at Northside Records on Gertrude St in Collingwood to an extremely packed crowd inside and outside of the store. Such a fantastic way to celebrate one of the most incredible and electrifying albums around. The energy was contagious.
