I went and saw Brisbane grunge outfit The Boys last night at the Zoo. There was a small but extremely passionate crowd of supporters which is nice for them, though it did feel somewhat like it was only them that were being catered to. That said I really enjoyed the songs they played, and the high level of musicianship showcased by all the members. The stage seemed a little crowded, especially for a grunge band bordering on stoner rock. My head count saw the band numbering 6 with a rhythm and lead guitar, bass player, percussionist, keyboard player and excitable front-woman. It’s probably just my preference for stripped down rock but that seems a bit redundant to me.
