Out of Sydney, Australia comes Sticky Fingers. With a sound all their own, a wild blend of indie, psychedelic, reggae rock fusion they lit up the stage and moved the crowd. Admittedly in their own words, “we don’t know what happened Seattle, last time we were here we played to like 20 people”. It’s true, having been at that show last year, this was a far greater turnout for a sold out show at The Crocodile.
Whatever it is they’re doing, it seems to be working. With the release of their 3rd studio album “Westway (The Glitter & The Slums)” they seemed to have found a “chill” and more introspective side.
This doesn’t mean they aren’t as rowdy and raucous as they ever were. With a slew of songs that had fans dancing with their arms held high and belting out the lyrics to tunes such as “Bootleg Rascal” or one of their encores, “Australia Street”, they kept the energy high.
Opening the show was an acoustic set brought by Australian band Bootleg Rascals, named after one of Sticky Fingers songs. Followed by Kings Shelter, a harder rocking band out of LA who described their music as “rock salad”.
Another amazing night added to the memory bank.
Note: Keep an eye out for Bootleg Rascal as they are set to come back to the states with their full band in March.
