We only decided yesterday that we’d go see Blue King Brown at Brisbane’s Tivoli last night.
Melbourne hip hop collective TZU (pronounced tee zed yoo) were mixing things up when we arrived about eight-thirty. We’d seen them before at the Valley fiesta and yet again they didn’t dissapoint. They had this beatbox thing which was seriously rad. They played the somewhat relevant Summer Days but with a mid-tempo disco beat which was rather cool. They finished with an amazing spoken word by Joelistics.
Blue King Brown put on a really good show. They had a cool video screen with lots of imagery. Playing as a ten piece band meant there was lots of depth and also many solos which all sounded great, especially the keyboard solos. There were a hilarious group of fans standing next to us who would provide a running commentary such as “oh my god, he has magical fingers man” .
