So the missus took me to the Mango Groove show at Old Georgians on Friday night, and we had one heck of a time!
The place was packed and the booze was flowing, with a rum and coke going at a princely $2, so I was fucking at it like a sailor on shore leave.
Tourettes opened, and they were surprisingly good, and their (pregnant) lead singer is pretty cute, but nothing could beat the dynamo that is Mango Groove in full flow.
Claire Johnston may be getting on, but she’s still a whirlwind of fire and energy, and I’ll be honest, I’ve never seen anything like it.
When they played “Special Star” it was probably one of the happiest moments of my adult life, and it’s been a while since ANY music made me feel so good.
And I’ve never seen so many white people in my life.
They closed their show with a song from their new album.
The song is called “Harare”.
