2nd August was the date and the Hopetoun Hotel was the venue. Bhanglassi, the headline act, played their best set yet to a crowd of excited Hopetoun punters. The night was supported by In the After, The Ghetto Blaster and a strange guy dressed up as a civil war union officer banging on about Anna Nicole Smith.

Good on the guy for giving it a go ashame it was terrible. When the Lassi finally got to the stage a robotic voice kicked off the start of the gig and went straight into some fine tunes. At the end of the gig an encore was shouted out and a whole new lassi appeared with Matt on the drums and Mike on some more drums –
Also available at the back of the Hopetoun were Lassi t-shirts selling for $20 which people who were not known to the band were buying, which is a great sign in my opinion.
Right at the very end Mike gave a shout out to the crowd and threw the microphone stand down onto the floor in true rock and roll style –

Brilliant gig can’t wait for the next one.
