Valley Fiesta 2011. First time I saw The Jungle Giants live.
I was living in Queensland working with Brisbane Festival, when one of my Spiegeltent colleagues raved about this young band of awesome local-Brisbane musos that I just had to check out. That band was The Jungle Giants and their wicked catchy tunes swiftly reached high-rotation on my iPhone. Just a few weeks later I was project managing Valley Fiesta for Strut N Fret when they hit the Brunswick St Main Stage & wow.. do they crank!
Flash forward to Splendour last year & I was fortunate enough to hang out with the band whilst camping/drinking buddies with Andy (The Belligerents) & his crew; such friendly, down-to-earth peeps with mad skills who obviously love what they do, so when I heard The Jungle Giants were down in Melbourne last weekend, I just had to be there & get one of our shooters along.
With amazing live energy and performance/stagecraft, The Jungle Giants blew away the sold-out Corner Hotel and left me wanting to know just one thing.. Do they feed you Skittles & Red Bull before each show, Andrew? 😀
The Jungle Giants are currently on their ‘I Am What You Want Me To Be’ single tour with 2 more shows this weekend in Brisbane (Friday 12th July – Oh Hello!) and Sydney (Saturday 13th July – The Standard).
Crank this shit loud, check out our pics from The Corner Hotel below & get your ass down to a show.. you will not be disappointed!
